Student Ministry Resident


This is an entry level position for someone who feels a call to ministry, specifically but not limited to student ministry. We believe one of the best ways to foster and train people who feel called to ministry is by giving them a real life experience that includes but is not limited to learning how to work in a church, how to teach and lead students, by being mentored by experienced student ministry staff, by fostering meaningful relationships with students, and by providing support for the Vestavia United Methodist Student Ministry Staff. This is a 2 year program with the possibility of extending. This is a full time job with inconsistent hours. Please plan on being flexible with your schedule. As well, we expect you to attend retreats, weekend and evening events. Focus of this position is to engage with students conversationally and relationally in keeping with being an inviting community church and ministry, disciple students to help them grow in their personal faith with Christ, provide and attend fellowship events with students to connect with them and help them connect to others, worship with the goal of helping students to honor God with their lives, and serve God through loving others to lead students to do the same.
