On my way back from the city dump, I wondered what a job description for a youth pastor should really look like. It would take more volumes than Encyclopedia Britannica to list all the jobs that we do. So, for the sake of time and sanity, I’ve only listed a few of the occupations that I have experienced under the title of youth pastor.

  1. Fork-lift Operator
  2. Life-guard
  3. Janitor
  4. Baby-sitter (not teens, literally, babies)
  5. Live Sound Engineer
  6. Web Designer
  7. Advertising/Marketing Agent
  8. Summer Camp Counselor
  9. Journalist
  10. Youth Culture Expert
  11. Trash Hauler
  12. Musical Artist/ Worship Band Leader
  13. Mover
  14. Sex Ed Instructor (abstinence-based, of course)
  15. Secretary Receptionist
  16. Preacher
  17. Fashion Consultant
  18. Accountant
  19. Photographer
  20. Furniture Assembler
  21. Painter
  22. Event Planner/Coordinator
  23. Salesperson
  24. Biblical-based Counselor
  25. Van Driver
  26. Computer Technical Advisor
  27. Interior Designer

In some ways, youth pastors are like stay-at-home moms. There is little recognition or financial compensation for our occupation, and it’s 24/7/365. Our reward is watching our kids grow up. It is a labor of love.

*The title Youth Pastor may not do justice to all the responsibilities that this gainful employment truly requires.
