Does YS accept all job/resume listings?
The Job Bank is meant to primarily be a resource for youth ministry and the church or organization with a job opening. Since 1997, the YS Job Bank has been a leader in connecting churches and ministry organizations with youth leaders. We do not limit our Job Bank to youth openings only, we accept listings for openings in children’s ministry, worship, young adult ministry, etc. This includes jobs for both the church and para-church organizations.
What is YS Search?
In short, the YS Job Bank is reactive and YS Search is your proactive option for a job search.
YS Search is designed to help churches find the right personnel for their open job. We pull in all of our experience working with youth pastors and understanding healthy youth ministries to assist our church partnerships that are in the middle of a leadership transition. On the flip-side we also partner with the applicant/candidate as they walk through pursuing these open opportunities.
Brian Aaby, the director of YS Search, has operated on both sides of the Youth Ministry search equation; as a youth pastor searching for a healthy church and as a part of youth pastor search teams. Brian says, “I know from experience that it’s not an easy transition and I know how much I wish the resources of YS Search had been available to me.”
Please contact Brian and the YS Search team here.
Does YS verify the validity of churches listing positions, as well as people listing resumes?
YS does not take responsibility for any of the listings or any accuracy of the listings on the Job Bank. We are simply a platform to help people and organizations find and connect with each other. Take time to research more about each opportunity and don’t be afraid to ask for references. YS reserves the right to remove listings.
