· The preferred candidate should excel in relational leadership but also possess competencies in administration, teaching, and evangelism.

· A Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Christian Education, Youth/Pastoral Ministry, Bible, or other relevant field and previous youth ministry experience (paid or volunteer) are strongly preferred.

Compensation and Benefits:

· Full-time Salary and Housing Allowance commensurate with education and experience.
