Student Ministries Pastor

New Life Church, where Jesus and His Word are exalted, is located in New Cumberland in south central Pennsylvania and has been influencing this region for Christ since 1975.  It is a place where people can be real, can search for meaning and fulfillment found only in Jesus Christ, and can make a difference in the world around us.  Our focus is encouraging people to belong, become more like Christ, move beyond themselves, and make disciples of Jesus Christ. 

New Life Church is looking for a self-motivated, energetic follower of Christ with a heart for the next generation.  This is a full-time position with room for personal and professional growth for a candidate who has a definite call into ministry and has a humble, teachable servant’s heart.  Our mission is to introduce Middle School and High School students to Jesus, help them follow Him, and be intentional in reaching others for Christ.  The ideal candidate would partner with parents, families, and our ministry team to help these students meet and follow Jesus effectively. 

The Student Ministries Pastor is responsible for the ministry and discipleship of students from Middle School through High School.  The role also carries the responsibility to reach out to the unchurched youth in the community, engage them with the gospel, and involve them with the work of the church.  The Student Ministries Pastor will be responsible for developing relationships with students, their parents, and adult leaders within the ministry.  They are to be an advocate for youth and educate the congregation about the hopes, concerns, and needs of youth in the local church and community.
