GCC is a growing and multi-staff church with an average Sunday morning attendance of 1000 in the southern region of Lancaster County, PA. The Youth Pastor gives oversight and direction to the middle school and high school ministries. Additionally, it involves various pastoral duties assigned by the lead pastor, including the pastoral care of the families of GCC youth and assistance with the weekend worship services.

In filling this position, we are looking for someone who has a vision for youth ministries as a calling from the Lord. This position will involve teaching/preaching at midweek Youth Church, recruiting and equipping youth leaders, and leading youth into a growing relationship with Christ. The position requires the minimum of a bachelor’s degree in youth and family ministry or similar academic field, as well as 3-5 years of experience in these areas.
