Associate Pastor of Youth, Young Adults, and Discipleship
Job Description

Ministry Description


The Associate Pastor is a full-time position at Christ’s American Baptist Church, Spring Grove, PA. This person will report directly to the Senior Pastor and serve under the direction of the CABC Elder Board.

In this role, the staff member is responsible for the development and continuation of programs that promote youth, young adults, and discipleship at Christ’s American Baptist Church. This position is charged with discipling the spiritual growth of youth and young adults, guiding them in discovering and developing their spiritual gifts, and assisting them in applying their gifts in service, discipleship, and worship at CABC, in their communities, and in the world. The primary concern for this Associate Pastor will be the youth ministry, but will also work to develop a plan and a team to oversee ministry programs for CABC’s young adults. Eventually, once these two ministries are thriving, the Associate Pastor will take on the increased responsibility as the contact person for CABC’s discipleship ministry teams. Although the Associate Pastor will be spending most of their time supporting the Youth and Young Adult ministries, it is the desire of the Elder Board of CABC that this Associate Pastor be committed to the discipleship of the entire body of CABC. This will involve helping to bridge these two parts of our church in overseeing the transition from youth and young adults into worshipfully serving adult members and strengthening the relationships between these various groups. This person must be relational, display spiritual maturity, clearly communicate an understanding of the Bible, and be a leader with a passion for youth, young adults, and discipleship.
