Bridges Christian Church in Russell, KY, is seeking a capable and committed Christian to assume leadership in our Student ministries. The Student Pastor at Bridges Christian Church will be responsible for both the Middle School and Senior High School ministries. This is a full-time salaried position. Bridges is a multi-generational church in Russell, Kentucky. The church is associated with the Christian Churches of the Restoration Movement (also known as the Stone-Campbell Movement). We average thirty to forty 6th – 12th graders in our student worship gatherings.  We are well known throughout our community for our emphasis on high-quality student programs.

This vital role will provide pastoral leadership for students 6th – 12th grades, their parents, and the volunteer leaders. The Student Pastor provides leadership over activities and programs focusing on the spiritual growth and development of 6th – 12th grade students both in church-based activities and in the context of their families.

Worship and Christian Education: The Student Pastor will be the primary speaker/teacher for student gatherings. It is very important that the Student Pastor is not only Biblically accurate when teaching but also connecting to the students inside and outside of Sunday morning and Sunday evening services. The Student Pastor will also work on discipling students to assist and serve in other areas of the ministry. The Student Pastor will occasionally work cross functionally to assist with other areas of ministry such as Upward Sports, Winshape, VBS, King’s Kids, and other summer camp experiences.  The Student Pastor will be responsible for leading and shepherding students and volunteers, building and developing volunteer teams, directing, organizing, and leading the Student Ministry of Bridges Christian Church. This role will be expected to make efforts when it comes to evangelism and outreach outside the walls of the church.

Family-centered: Bridges is committed to fostering intergenerational experiences and strengthening families. This is often called a family-based ministry approach. Parents (or other caregivers) are partners we try to engage and support. Although ministering directly to students is central, encouraging and supporting their families is also important.
