Position Description

Take the lead in shepherding the next generation of church leaders!

The Church

Emmanuel is a vibrant multi-campus, multi-generational congregation that is approaching 95 years of ministry.  We are a large regional church in the booming city of Barrie, one of Canada’s fastest growing municipalities.  With the growing city comes the exciting opportunity through ministry and multi-site to impact more people with the gospel of Jesus Christ.  

The Position

We are seeking a passionate, visionary leader to lead our vibrant Young Adults ministry (ages 18-30) as well as other shepherding opportunities in our church community. This person must demonstrate the ability to teach God’s Word, easily develop relationships with others, have a passion for evangelism, and work well as a member of a large pastoral team. 


  • Provide vision, leadership, oversight, teaching, participation and advancement of the Young Adults Ministry (Centred) at Emmanuel, creating a community in which people grow in love for God and their neighbour.
  • Develop and lead weekly Young Adult Ministries, worship, teaching, and fellowship times (i.e. oversee the main teaching for Young Adults on Thursday evenings, weekends and other designated ministry times). 
  • Disciple and shepherd young adults, with a particular emphasis on the spiritual care of Emmanuel’s young adults who remain locally or are away attending college or university. 
  • Be flexible in their abilities to minister to the wider Emmanuel community through shepherding, outreach and spiritual care.


  • Bachelor’s degree in a relevant ministry field preferred (Biblical Studies, Religious Education, Church Ministry, etc)
  • A minimum of five years full-time ministry experience preferred
  • A vibrant personal relationship with Jesus Christ demonstrated in a love for the gospel and non-churched people
  • Teachable, inspirational, and motivational

To summarize, we are looking for a dynamic leader with a passion for shepherding our Young Adults in the Word and inspiring them to share Jesus in their context. If you would like to make a difference in developing the church leaders of tomorrow, and if you live and breathe the Great Commission, this role may be for you!
