Director of Youth Ministries


Grace Covenant Presbyterian Church

Orlando FL


This is a full-time job directing the youth ministries of our 500+ member congregation, focusing on Middle School and High School.  You would work closely with the Commissioned Pastor who focuses on children’s ministries and with the Senior Pastor.  The youth meet on Sunday afternoons for study or mission work.  Mission work might include service at Give Kids the World for seriously ill children or at a homeless ministry in the area.  We have one or two youth Sundays per year in which the youth preach and lead worship at 8:30 and 10:45 on Sunday mornings.  We have several trips and retreats in the year, as well as lock-ins at the church gym.  We expect one week-long event for both middle school (usually to Maryville TN) and for high school (usually to Montreat, NC).  This person would be responsible for securing and training volunteers for the youth program.  We also work closely with other churches in the Central Florida Presbytery and provide leadership in regional events.  We expect our Director of Youth Ministry to be a strong participant in presbytery programs.

This position includes some medical benefits, pension, four weeks vacation and two weeks continuing education leave.
