The Dewey Community Church is seeking an Associate Pastor for Youth Ministry. We recognize that an active youth ministry plays a vital role in the life of young people. Our goals as a church are to provide our youth with:
1) a youth ministry that results in making more and better disciples of Jesus Christ;
2) a youth ministry that fosters an intense desire for participation among the young people of the church and community;
3) a youth ministry that fosters relationships between the youth and the rest of the congregation.
The Dewey Community Church is located in Dewey, IL which is 13 miles north of Champaign, IL. We are located in what would best be described as a small-town, rural area.
While agriculture plays a prominent role in both our church and community, our proximity to Champaign affords many opportunities for employment and recreation. The congregation (average Sunday morning worship attendance is 120 people) consists of a diverse group of people in terms of ages and occupations. The youth group (Grades 6-12) currently draws approximately 40-50 students from the church and community at Wednesday evening ‘DewCrew’ gatherings. Along with the DewCrew ministries, the congregation has additional children’s and youth ministries including Bible Quizzing (Grades 7-12) and basketball (Grades 1-6) and volleyball (Grades 5-8) ministries.
The Dewey Community Church is a member congregation of the Fellowship of Evangelical Churches whose Resource Center is located in Fort Wayne, IN. Information about the FEC can be accessed at their website (www.fecministries.org). In addition, the Statement of Faith which guides both our denomination and our local congregation can be viewed on the FEC website.
