Staff Associate I — Humble, TX

Description:

​Northeast Houston Young Life is searching for a staff associate to lead our ministry at Summer Creek High School. Summer Creek is a diverse school with the majority of the student body being Hispanic and African American. It's a large 6A Texas high school with strong school pride and culture.

Young Life started at Summer Creek two years ago. There has been a full-time staff associate leading with our volunteer leader team in club and Campaigners. A foundation of ministry with students has been developed at Summer Creek that is ready for a staff associate to step into and continue moving forward with our leaders. There is a committed group of families on our committee who helped start Young Life at Summer Creek and who continue to serve and fuel the ministry. With a faithful volunteer leader team and committee, the ministry at Summer Creek is in need of a staff associate to come lead the mission of introducing teenagers to Jesus Christ and helping them grow in their faith. Northeast Houston Young Life has two Young Life clubs, a WyldLife club, and YoungLives club.

Responsibilities:

  • ​Personal spiritual health and a vital relationship with Christ.
  • Develop community and spiritual care for a team.
  • Build healthy working relationships with administration, campus ministers and the community.
  • Initiate and develop new ministry through contact work, club, Campaigners and camp.
  • Work with the committee in area fundraising and grow a personal donor base each year.

Notes:

​Young Life has been present in Northeast Houston for 29 years. There's a rich history of Young Life in the area where it started. Summer Creek High School was the first branching out of ministry in the area. There is a lot of newness to Summer Creek when it comes to Young Life, but there is great support from the school and community. If you love being with kids and leading a team, this is a great fit. It's a diverse school with a strong culture that a full-time staff associate can jump into and be a part of.
