The First Church of DeMotte (IN) seeks a Youth Pastor to lead a thriving Youth and Children’s Ministry, as well as a thriving Care and Development Ministry, while embodying an Honor-Filled Heart for the House. The Youth Pastor will have the privilege of working alongside Pastor John Hill, witnessing the construction of a new facility, preaching preach several times throughout the year, and much more. The ideal candidate for this position is a passionate follower of Jesus looking to boldly reach the next generation – and willing to do things others aren’t in order to fulfill that mission. Also, this gifted leader is creative and radical, not conventional and conservative.
First Church is affiliated with the Reformed Church in America. The congregation recently opened a new chapter of ministry with the arrival of Senior Pastor John Hill, a young, energetic, gifted leader and communicator. During his short time with the congregation, worship attendance has increased 50% and the congregation.
The vision of “First Church” – Generation After Generation Becoming Fully Devoted Followers of Jesus – has prompted strategic initiatives to reach this and future generations of people with the hope of Christ. One such initiative is the construction of a new 40,000 square feet facility with seating for 700 worshipers. The congregation plans to break ground in the coming months.
The community of DeMotte, a town of nearly 4,000 people (surrounded by 13,000 people within a fifteen minute radius), is rich in history and charm. Known for its rural family values and spirit of community service, DeMotte is a great community within which to raise a family.
