Director/Associate Pastor of Youth & Young Adult Ministries
As one of the largest congregations in the Presbytery of Chicago, Knox is extremely blessed by our youth programs. There are regularly 30 or more teens present at our Wednesday night Youth Group and our Sunday night Youth Group Bible Study. Our Youth Pastor recently accepted a call to be a head of staff in Florida. We are now searching for either an Associate Pastor OR Director of Youth & Young Adults.
The vision for our youth is to cultivate a community of young Christians who believe deeply that loving God, knowing Jesus, embracing the Spirit of love, compassion and forgiveness, and serving others are not just church doctrines—they are a way of life. We accomplish this through many programs and initiatives inside our walls and outside in the community.
We are looking for a spiritually mature leader who loves teaching the Word of God and imparting Christian morals and ethics in ways relevant to our youth. Candidates may either be an ordained pastor within the PC(USA) or partner denomination OR non-ordained with comparable training and two-to-five years’ experience in Youth Ministry.
Knox Presbyterian Church is a thriving, spirit-filled church in Chicago’s western suburbs. Our congregation has grown to nearly 1,500 members since our formation in 1960. We carry out the mission of Jesus Christ through worship, fellowship, education, and mission. At Knox, we believe that God has called us together to be a community of faith where people encounter the living Christ and desire to be more like him. We endeavor to learn, grow and serve as followers of Jesus.
