Looking for someone to head up your youth ministry? Check out Hiring a Youth Pastor or Director: What Churches and New Hires Should Know — a new resource put together by Faith Formation Ministries’ youth ministry catalyzer, Ron deVries.

This helpful 30-page guide contains two sections: one for the hiring church and one for the newly hired youth pastor/director.

Additional topics addressed include: 

  • crafting a job description
  • planning an effective search process
  • interviewing candidates 
  • developing mentoring relationships
  • accessing denominational support and resources
  • and more!

Our Church is looking for a youth pastor/director. Most people serving on this committee have never done the job before. They will hopefully get some elder guidance, but since most churches do not have to search to fill positions very often, it will be precious little.  The problem with that is although they are well-intentioned the bar may be lowered just to fill the slot. I found this piece to be very helpful.  A must-read for every search committee.
