Ministry to Children and Youth in Western Washington

Summary

We are looking for an innovative and people-centered individual or couple to bring the light of the gospel to the youth of the Olympic Peninsula of Washington, also known as the area made famous in the Twilight series. In a fast-moving society where the young people outside the mainstream are often overlooked, we need witnesses to the gospel who take the time to assess an area, find out where the greatest needs are, and develop creative strategies to meet those needs. This is a position for someone to support and extend the work of local churches and individuals, as well as create new ministries for youth in the area. In this job you will work with other InFaith field staff in the area through the established two-week camping ministry. You will also be given the freedom to apply your unique gifts and skills to reach into the lives of the often overlooked children and teens of the Olympic Peninsula.
