I wrote this job description this afternoon for my friend, Becca, the YP at FUMC here in my home town. Then, I thought, “I think I’ll share this!” Recruiting someone who keeps up with the youth room for themes and seasons is a great way to give a small church youth group and room a boost. It sends the message, “We care about you!” (The pictures attached are what two small churches did when I challenged them to spruce things up.)

    Hi Stephanie, do you have any other youth leadership job descriptions? – :) Andy, (New Zealand)

  • Hey Stephanie, I’d also like to see some of your more typical ministry descriptions. We’ve been working in a system that hasn’t had descriptions, and retro-fitting them seems a little daunting at times. Would you mind shooting something my way that would give me a place to start when it comes to some of the more expected roles? Or do you have a recommended resource for this?
