Mount Calvary Baptist in Valdese is seeking a part-time Student Ministries Leader. We are a growing church with an average weekly attendance between 100-150.

Our mission is simple – To Love God and Love our Neighbors. We exist to show people the love of Christ, to support membership in His family, to grow together towards spiritual maturity, and to equip each other for personal ministry. We hope that by doing so we magnify the name of our God. We seek to proclaim the gospel and celebrate the love of God for all people through discipleship, within the dynamic of corporate worship, and in our daily lives. We seek to bear witness to the love of Jesus to all in our community and our world through our own individual efforts, in our cooperative efforts through the local church, as well as with other Christian ministries and public efforts.

The Student Ministries Leader will be directly responsible for the direction and oversight of our student ministries, which covers all students from middle school through high school. The ideal candidate should be a dynamic, energetic, and engaging leader, capable of showing a genuine love for students and for becoming an integral part of their lives. This person should also have a solid, foundational knowledge of the Word of God, with the ability to communicate the truths found in Scripture on a level students can relate to and understand. The successful candidate will serve as a true partner in ministry, and will empower and encourage our students along those same lines.

At present, we have teams and volunteers in place for all our student groups. Our elementary aged students participate in RA’s, GA’s, Sunday School, and Children’s Church. Our Youth meet on Sunday Mornings, Sunday Evenings, and Wednesday evenings. We presently try to hold one special event per month (lock-in, concert, movie night, etc.) which is open to both our Youth and College aged members.
