Job Description

Harvest Church is a healthy, non-denominational, gospel-centered, multi-campus church located in beautiful western Pennsylvania. Serving our communities on four campuses in four counties, and our missionaries scattered throughout the globe, we exist to increase the health and size of God's church everywhere. We are growing and looking for a gospel-driven, energetic, Student Ministry Leader to take our successful youth program to the next level.

A college degree is appreciated, but not required. Some experience working with Jr/Sr High youth programs and an honest passion for working with youth, spreading the gospel, and making disciples of Christ is preferred.

  • Seek to walk uprightly before the Lord in their own lives; and
  • Execute the vision and core values of the Elders at Harvest Community Church.

This takes constant effort through prayer, the study of scripture, professional growth, education, training, and personal interaction with the congregation. The Student Ministry Leader is a professional, salaried position requiring them to maintain balance between a 40+ hour work week and their personal life.

The following are several specific duties/responsibilities:

  • Leadership Development - build/maintain student leadership teams
  • Volunteer Development - secure a volunteer base via recruiting and training
