Auckland – Staff Positions in Youth Ministry and Social Media

Massey-Riverhead Presbyterian Church, a multi-cultural evangelical church on the growing northwest edge of Auckland, is currently needing to strengthen its staff team in the following three areas: youth, junior youth, and social media.  All of these are part-time positions, but could possibly be combined, or may be combined with study or other work.  The persons we seek are deeply committed Christian believers with excellent biblical understanding, are passionate about the gospel, are gifted in helping people come to faith and grow as followers of Christ, are warmly relational, have good people skills, communicate well, are team-players, are self-motivated, and are able to inspire and build.  Expressions of interest by 31st January 2021 to our senior minister, Stuart Lange:  stuart.m.lange@gmail.com 

1.Youth:
Pastoral care, evangelism, discipleship and teaching among youth (age 14+).  Co-ordination of senior youth work, working with a team of voluntary leaders.  The two main events are the Friday Night youth group and the Sunday morning “Disciples”.

2.Junior youth:
Teaching and pastoral care among junior youth (ages 11-14).  Main event is on Sunday morning.  (The appointee in this role may possibly also have a leadership role with ICONZ or ICONZ 4 Girlz).

3.Social Media co-ordinator:
Working on a variety of platforms ranging from social media to email marketing, media distribution to online community management, all for the purposes of proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ and helping build the church.

We need your help to make Tips and Tricks videos

PYM is currently working on making some Tips and Tricks videos which will be used when coaching youth leaders. We need your help!

We are wanting youth leaders to film little 30s clips of themselves answering questions, Below are the questions we would love you to answer.

You can film 1 video answering 1 question or film multiple for each topic whatever feels manageable.  The best way to film is to just film facing a camera and be somewhere quiet so we don’t pick up too much background noise! Just remember that 30 seconds is a great length and over a minute is probably a bit long (unless it’s a really epic story that needs slightly longer)

Video parameters:

  • Send as many video’s in as you like but keep it around 30s-1 minute long.
  • Film in landscape view
  • Be yourself and have fun with it
  • Reduce background noise.
  • Use a good camera if possible.
  • feel free to answer the question or share any stories you might have about a win that’s happened on that topic: e.g. a time discipline led to a young person gaining confidence

Please send your videos to jasmin@pym.org.nz
