Bethany Church West Orange, NJ, USA
A gospel-centered, multi-ethnic church in New Jersey (20 miles to New York City) is seeking an Urban Youth Pastor. Our church is located within a diverse community that has nearly 50,000 people in a square mile radius of our facility. We are served by a quality school district. Our church also maintains a 501c3 community development corp. to facilitate after school programs for nearly 300 unchurched middle and high school students. Candidates must have a passion for evangelizing and discipling youth by living in the community and incarnating the gospel. Our after-school programs foster opportunities for relationship building, bible studies, and the chance to engage the hopes, dreams, and challenges that todays’ youth face. We conduct both a winter and spring basketball league. Volleyball, soccer, video competitions, and our week-long overnight summer camp also give us access to local youth.
