Pioneer Youth Minister – Parish of Rural Ainsty

Objectives, Responsibilities and Tasks

To reach local 11-18 year olds with the Gospel

Engage in a ‘listening and discernment’ process to identify the most effective way to begin reaching local teenagers, and continue prayerfully developing strategies for the growth of a Missional Youth Church (MYC).  (This will involve schools work – both formal and informal, and out-of-schools activities)

Build life-enhancing relationships with young people (in and outside school), expressing the Gospel through actions and words, so that young people may become disciples of Christ.

Create and develop small discipleship groups of young people to explore Christianity and grow as disciples of Christ, learning to worship and pray together.

Develop an informal community of young people outside of school, where faith can be shared and developed in the context of youth work.

To identify, mentor and empower young leaders from the developing community

As the community develops, identify and encourage young ‘people of peace’ who have a desire to reach out to others.

Encourage, mentor and empower young leaders, ensuring they have appropriate skills and a ‘DNA’ for reaching and leading others.

Encourage active participation in the MYCN Young Leaders Learning Community (once established).

  1. Undertake and regularly update risk assessments and health & safety policies associated with activities and take steps to manage and reduce the risk.
  2. Comply with all current safeguarding legislation and policies and all other relevant policies, as appropriate (detached youth work, drug and alcohol, equal opportunities, confidentiality etc).
  3. Undertake other duties as outlined by the line manager which are commensurate with the post.
