1 Youth Ministry Opportunity in a Large Multi-Staff Church Director of Youth Ministries Lincoln Berean Church Lincoln, Nebraska POSITION INTRODUCTION: Lincoln Berean Church is located in Lincoln, Nebraska. Lincoln is the capital city of Nebraska. It is a vibrant, growing college town of 300,000, has an active arts, sports and music community, and was recently rated one of the top cities in America for young entrepreneurial start-ups. Lincoln Berean Church is a healthy and growing church through whom God is reaching and transforming thousands of lives. With a weekly attendance of approximately 4000, LBC seeks to help each person grow toward completion in Christ through our primary environments of worship and small groups wherein we seek to emphasize our core values of Worship, Outreach, Community, Instruction, Prayer, Service, and Stewardship. Berean comes from Acts 17 and underscores our strong commitment to a solid Biblical foundation and to continual effective and relevant Biblical teaching. Our Youth Ministries are active and growing targeting hundreds of students (grades 6-12) within our church and the thousands more throughout our city. We are reaching them through larger settings but we are very committed to a relational model of ministry that is expanding our small groups and house groups in significant ways. We have completed construction on the first phase of a new 30,000 square foot Youth Complex facility, that has proven to be an excellent ministry tool. The Director of Youth Ministries Pastor will serve as the point leader for a multi-staff, team-oriented, leadership strategy. The position requires a strong visionary leader with excellent strategic thinking and ministry planning strengths, as well as the experience necessary to take Youth Ministry to the next level in a large church context.
