Staff Associate — Naples, FL

Description:

​Collier County Multiethnic Young Life is looking to hire a staff associate to work alongside the area director to grow and develop a diverse ministry that was launched three years ago.

Collier County is a growing county located in beautiful Southwest Florida. Warm weather is a highlight with beautiful beaches nearby for boating and fishing. Tourists are amazed by the beauty and available activities located in our own backyard.

This position will focus on developing Young Life ministry and bringing awareness to the new developing area in South Naples, along with the possibility of developing WyldLife clubs in the area. This newly hired staff person will focus his or her gifts on direct kid ministry, campus relationship building with local schools, community collaboration, leading a dynamic club on and off campus, doing great contact work, camp recruiting, building Campaigners groups, and recruiting, training, growing and encouraging leaders! We are looking for a self-starter — someone who can take initiative and is not easily discouraged. As another plus, we are financially solid and have raised part of the money needed for a staff associate. Are you up for the adventure?

Responsibilities:

  • ​Work closely with the area director, committee and volunteers.
  • Work to maintain/grow Jesus-loving volunteer leader teams that organize club, do contact work at the local schools, invite teens to camp, attend all camps, and disciple teens well.

  • Help to recruit, train and sustain leaders.
  • Build community and parent support by demonstrating excellent relational work with teens, parents and community.
  • Attend Young Life training courses (New Staff, Leadership I and II, Winter Training and Apologetics) and meet for regional staff associates training once a month.
  • Participating in committee meetings and fundraising events and be capable of funding a portion of his or her position.

Qualifications:

  • ​Young Life volunteer or part-time staff experience is required.
  • Recommendation letters from previous employment and ministries.
  • Authentic and growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
  • Strong leadership skills and experience in developing people.
  • Confident and willing to take initiative; a self-starter capable of independent leadership.
  • Ability to manage multiple projects.
  • Willingness to raise personal and ministry financial support and learn more about the inner workings of a non-profit.
  • Ability to create community among peer group.
  • Willing to make a two-year minimum commitment with the possibility of a third year.
  • A teachable spirit.

Benefits:

​Full-Time Salary
  • Based on experience and responsibility.

  • Training and career development is built into the job.

Notes:

​Do you love the idea of being a pioneer and growing ministry? Do you consider yourself a person who desires growth/learning and finds yourself fully dependent on the Lord to help develop new opportunities to do so? Do you have a calling to share God's love through Young Life with people who have never heard about the mission of Young Life before? Do you like NEW adventures and consider yourself inspiring, a difference maker, and person of impact? Are you a self-starter and motivated to step into new territories with ambition and to develop teams to make an impact in a new community and in the lives of teens through the way you love and share Jesus? If so, Collier County Multicultural may be a fit for you.
