We have a unique opportunity for someone looking for a part time ministry position and the desire to be a missionary to the local community as well as an important spiritual mentor.  Sound like you?  Read on!

Since Young Life began in Canada in 1954, its staff and volunteers have cared enough to leave the comfort of their adult worlds and enter the arena of high school and junior high school life.  These trained Young Life leaders are committed to friendships with kids - no strings attached.  They go where kids are and spend time in their world playing road hockey, going to the mall, watching a basketball game, or heading to the ski hill.  Young Life leaders build bridges of friendship in order to “earn the right to be heard.”  We are all about communicating God's love and the Christian message to kids in terms they can understand.  Young Life values and respects all young people, and welcomes all teenagers, both junior and senior high, regardless of race or religious beliefs.

Young Life in North Vancouver is looking to hire someone part time to join our Staff Associate program starting September 2017.

Staff Associate Job Description:  Reporting to the Regional Director, you commit to active participation in a fellowship learning community for two years where you will learn Young Life ministry skills, spiritual leadership and professionalism to effectively reach teenagers with the Gospel.  The intent of your training is to qualify you for deployment as an Area Director to build Young Life in another Canadian city. 

You are responsible to recruit, train and lead a team of volunteer leaders, and build an effective new Young Life ministry in a junior or senior high school.  You will be active in all levels of contact work and invest in key groups of kids.  You will build a thriving club, take kids to camp, and initiate and lead a Campaigner group with excellence.  You will build relationships with teenagers, presenting the Gospel of Jesus Christ incarnationally, always trying to bridge the gap between teenagers and Jesus. Teenagers will hear the Gospel in terms they can understand from someone who cares for them personally. 

Your qualifications include:

Dynamic Christian faith and a passion to share this

Experience leading a Young Life club and/or youth ministry in a church or parachurch setting
