Indian Creek Christian Church in Cynthiana, KY is in search of a biblically grounded, faithfully firm individual to lead our Student Ministry. If you see yourself as having the heart of a teacher, a gifted communicator, and having a passion to see middle and high school students come to know Jesus, we want to talk to you! When you describe yourself to someone, if you happen to use words like lifelong learner, servant leader, relational, and spiritual guide then you may be the individual that we are looking for.
When you look at the staff and performance of each individual ministry, you will see a benchmark that each one of your future teammates is holding themselves to. For your role here, these expectations could be anything from living directly in the Harrison Co community and holding regular office hours to active community involvement. We pride ourselves on being a close family and want to make sure that we are caring for our current family members as well as seeking and welcoming new family members into the church.
General Ministry Responsibilities
For Indian Creek’s new Student Minister, your potential responsibilities will include discipling the youth on Sundays and Wednesdays, creating and implementing an effective communication strategy with parents and students, and being present at students’ school events. As our student minister, we would look to you to have your finger on the pulse of current youth culture and how best to lead students to know Jesus. The student minister will lead the Sunday morning youth Bible studies, as well as oversee and lead the student groups on Wednesday nights, where you will find the entire church sharing a meal together before all ages head off to the meeting rooms for their discipleship time.
Ministry Life at Indian Creek
On your first day in the office, you will notice that all of the ministerial offices are located in an office suite. You will get the use of your own private office for you to create lessons, close the door and pray for the church family or meet with individuals for counseling. In your new office is a computer for you to use with current versions of Microsoft Word and other Microsoft Office programs.
One of the greatest things we can bring to the table are committed parents and volunteers. The parents of our 6-12th graders are eager to see you succeed and are excited to partner with you to disciple their children. As you walk into a student Bible study, you will be face to face with a great group of committed adult volunteers that are motivated to disciple students side by side. Each are ready for you to be here!
We want to care for you as you join the Indian Creek family by providing a home for you to live in. Recently renovated, this home sits on the church property, a short walk from the building. As a part of your compensation package, you will have the ability to count this as your home and use it as you would any other residence. We know that discipleship happens outside of the church building! Many memories and “Jesus moments” await as you use this home to disciple the students of Indian Creek.
As the leader of our 6-12th grade ministry, we are looking for you to create an engaging environment where our current students can continue to grow as well as new students that walk in to feel welcome. Leading a student ministry is a lot of work. We will be looking to you to empower and equip our current and any new adult volunteers with the tools they need to disciple our students along with you. We deeply desire the community of Harrison Co. to know Jesus. In order for that to take place, we are looking for you to move into the community and put down roots to live life alongside everyone in the Harrison Co area. The desire of our heart is to be equipped to carry out gospel advancement.
