A little bit about us …

RockRidge Canyon is a Young Life of Canada property located in Princeton, BC, Canada.  At RockRidge Canyon, teenagers are treated to the resort-quality facilities for which Young Life has become known.  Kids can get away from the pressures of everyday life, have fun with friends and their Young Life leaders, and hear the message of God’s love in terms they can understand.  Young Life camping involves high adventure, lots of fun, great food and excellent speakers.  Each year, more than 2,000 kids from across Canada and as far away as Europe or Asia, spend a week at RockRidge Canyon, having an experience that many describe as the best of their lives.  From September through June, when not hosting Young Life camps, RockRidge Canyon rents its excess capacity, serving as a conference and retreat centre for businesses, churches, and schools.

To learn more about RockRidge Canyon – visit RockRidgeCanyon.com.

Since Young Life began in Canada in 1954, our staff and volunteers have cared enough to leave the comfort of their adult worlds and enter the arena of high school and junior high school life.  Trained Young Life leaders are committed to friendships with kids – no strings attached.  We go where kids are and spend time in their world playing road hockey, going to the mall, watching a basketball game, or heading to the ski hill.  Young Life leaders build bridges of friendship in order to “earn the right to be heard.”  We are all about communicating God’s love and the Christian message to kids in terms they can understand.  Young Life values and respects all young people, and welcomes all teenagers, both junior and senior high, regardless of religious beliefs.  With staff in over 40 communities throughout BC, Alberta, Ontario and Quebec, Young Life of Canada employs more than 120 staff, and works with over 500 volunteers.

Pastor of Youth: North Delta Evangelical Church, North Delta, BC

 

North Delta Evangelical Free Church is a multi-ethnic, multi-generational English-speaking church that desires to introduce people to Jesus Christ, invite them into relationship with Him, and include them in our church community.

At NDEFC we have an exciting opportunity to grow our staff and support the work that God is doing through our church. The key ministry focus of this part-time staff position includes:

  • Youth Ministry—Every week a dedicated group of youth leaders come alongside 20-30 youth, many of whom are new to church with a potential for growth.This portionof the position would be the primary responsibility.
  • Young Adults—Wehave many people involved in community groups but we find that some young adults struggle with the transition to adulthood so we desire to see someone who can come alongside them and help guide them.

These ministries are so vital to where we believe God is leading us that we desire to invest in hiring someone who can serve in the leadership and administrative oversight of these ministries.

The ideal candidate would:

  1. Provide leadership in the Youth ministry. We are looking for someone who can develop and lead Youth leaders while providing overall leadership and oversight to the Youth ministry. Our goal is for youth to feel invited and secure while being challenged to grow in their faith in Jesus Christ. This person will be an anchor point for both the youth and their leaders during weekly events (as well as throughout the week), providing oversight to the entire youth ministry.
  2. Engage with the young adults by coming alongside them as they transition from Youth Group to Adult Community Groups.
  3. Teach, encourage, confront, and take initiative in the lives of those they lead.
  4. Be a part of the visionary leadership team to reach beyond ourselves to serve and love those in our church community and in the neighbourhoods around us.

 

As a church we have been praying that God will lead us clearly in this process. If you feel called and equipped to ministry in these areas, please forward your resume and cover letter via email to personnel@ndefc.orgor by mail to: North Delta Evangelical Free Church
