Whitehill is an established, contemporary, multi-generational, regional church with a passion for changing lives, families, communities, and the world with Jesus. The Church is located in Ipswich, Queensland, and holds two Sunday Worship services with a combined attendance of around 340. Throughout 2019 the church has been walking together through a year of transition after a long period of stable pastoral leadership. The transition process helped the church understand its history and identity, renew a passion and commitment to reach the local community, and prepare for the appointment of a new Senior Pastor. It’s an exciting time to join the team.

The key responsibilities of the role are to:

  1. Oversee and Lead the Whitehill Friday Night Youth Ministry
  2. Oversee and lead the Schools Ministry
  3. Oversee and lead Sunday Morning Youth Small Groups
  4. Participate in wider youth networks and collaborations
  5. Function as one of two ChildSafe Coordinators

The successful applicant will:

  • Be a mature and growing believer with exemplary Christian Character
  • A gifted leader and communicator
  • A team player, builder and leader
  • Committed to the vision and direction of Whitehill Church of Christ
  • Have Biblical/Theological qualifications (or currently pursuing qualifications) or equivalent
  • Have previous experience in leading youth ministry teams
  • Be recognised (or willing to be recognised) as a ministering person with Churches of Christ Queensland
