Website Mt Gilead Church
Mt Gilead Church, of Olney Illinois, is looking for a full-time Youth Pastor.
Mt Gilead is a country church but we have an “all the world” mentality! One of our core values is, “Be creative to be effective”. We are all about reaching the lost, the hurting, the disillusioned but doing so while encouraging the saints and helping everyone in our congregation to grow in their relationship with God!
We have a great congregation who love our kids and are committed to giving them the best opportunity to find and follow Jesus that we can!
We have had a very strong youth program for the last 12 years but our youth pastor of that era has felt it is time to move on to something else and we have sent him with our blessing! We are now seeking and asking God to bring us our next Youth Pastor.
We are a church of 300 to 400 who consider Mt Gilead their church although they do not come every Sunday. Like many churches, we have many who are somewhat on the “fringe” when it comes to attendance. But we want to continue to reach out to them and encourage them to get more involved and to come to know Jesus in a real and vibrant way!
The Youth Pastor position will oversee K-12 Children and Youth. This would entail direct contact with the kids and their families but would also include equipping and empowering volunteers to help in K-5, Jr High and High School youth programs and activities. We have had a great group of volunteers and they are actually helping to keep things together and moving along until God sends us our next leader.
