About Our Church

We are a dynamic, Spirit-filled, multi-ethnic, Pentecostal church in Lakeland, Florida. We are seeking a fulltime or part time youth/young adult pastor (a couple is preferred) who is comfortable and adept at working in a multi-cultural environment (primarily Indian)

Mission Statement:

The goal of the Youth Ministry (Middle, High School, and College & Career) is to build disciples for Christ, equipping them to share their faith with others. The mission of discipleship in relational environments should be a key component of the youth ministry.

culture and adjust our programming as needed to maintain a current and

effective program.

●  Share these changes with the parents to assist them in better understanding

their youth and the culture they live in.

●  Preaching in the church, as scheduled by the pastor.

●  Be a liaison between the church and other community organizations, people,

and resources that relate to youth ministries.

●  Select the curriculum, teach or coordinate others teaching, for all mid-week

o Build a team of passionate adult youth coaches to help mentor and disciple the youth
