Bring an energetic, creative and passionate lead to the Youth Work at Godfirst as part of the Godfirst Staff. The person will help grow the Godfirst Youth with a focus on Sunday Church Youth and the (currently) fortnightly mid-week Youth Gatherings.

Essential Criteria

The role is most suited to an outgoing, confident follower and disciple of Jesus, who must be passionate about helping young people have fun in community whilst on their journey of faith becoming followers of Jesus.

Character always trumps gift, so being a person of integrity, humility and teachableness is an essential quality that we want from staff, but also something we want to have rub off on the youth.

Preferred Criteria

Having a car would be a serious bonus to help with church logistics when required.

There is potential for sharing the role and time allocations between 2 churches here in town, so the ability to multitask, remain focused and move discreetly between these churches, will be a serious help in that scenario.

Accommodation Details

We'll place the Youth Worker with a family for the year and within reason, they would function as part of the family for that period whilst maintaining the usual space and freedoms expected of a guest.

Week Overview

The weekly overview is totally up for grabs, but this is the current layout:

  • Mondays - Staff meeting and office time
  • Thursday - Fortnightly evening Youth meetings
  • Sunday - Fortnightly XLR8 Youth at Church (XLR8 is pronounced 'accelerate')
