Area Director — Jonesboro, AR


​Greater Jonesboro Young Life is a new area in Northeast Arkansas, only one hour from Memphis and two hours from Little Rock. The metro area has a population of 124,000 and is a regional medical hub with two major hospitals. It is a college town housing Arkansas State University which boasts 14,125 students. With five school districts within 20 minutes of the campus, this town is poised to have a thriving Young Life ministry. There is a strong and ever-growing local committee that is ready to bring in the first area director.


​The area director would need to begin with recruiting, training and deploying leaders from the university and work together with the committee to decide where the first team of leaders would be placed. In the coming years the goal would be to develop Young Life College, Young Life and WyldLife, as well as Capernaum and YoungLives. The potential for ministry here is almost without limits.


​The ideal candidate would be a staff person with three to 10 years of experience in Young Life, preferably including running an area. We are looking for someone who wants to develop a college town and is hungry for a new challenge. It requires someone who is driven to get to the next kids and students with the Gospel and to disciple them to be kingdom-minded leaders. The candidate would need to bring $35,000 in personal support.
