Position Description

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 give vision and leadership to church-wide Discipleship. 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 of growth 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). 
  • Plan and implement discipleship programs that would move each ministry toward the core values of Emmanuel.
  • Develop and provide oversight for Emmanuel Care Teams, equipping the church to care for the church community.
  • Be flexible in their abilities to minister to the wider Emmanuel community through teaching, shepherding, and outreach.


  • 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 and discipleship, inspiring people 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!
