NSP is looking for campus ministry staff to bring Christ to millions of students. 
Are you one of them?

There are over 50 million public school students in America today, and most of them still need to meet Jesus Christ. This year, we’re impacting schools in 4 major metropolitan areas, but we’re praying and preparing to make an even bigger impact.

In the next three years, we seek to give 1 million students in 12 major cities across the nation the opportunity to hear the gospel. We are looking for leaders who want to help make that happen.

About the National School Project 
The National School Project is a rapidly growing ministry working to bring the good news of Jesus Christ to every high school in California, Illinois, and the nation. Our tagline – ’til every student has heard – is wide open and huge, and that’s how we operate. For the past 15 years, our team has been learning how to equip high school students as the leaders of a movement to reach the next generation for Christ, and we’ve seen amazing success. All glory to God, it’s been a wild ride and a thrilling place to work. Over the last few years, we started teams at 4 colleges and universities in Chicago, IL. Now, in addition to our home base in Southern California, we’re expanding through central California, Texas, Arizona, and the Midwest. In the coming years, we’ll be opening teams in several new states to coach students at hundreds of high schools to share the good news of Jesus Christ with their friends. Our growth is fueled by staff that love the gospel and are willing to trust God to raise the support to fund their positions (see more on that in our full job post).

The job of a Campus Ministry Staff is a big job because of our big mission. Each Campus Ministry Staff works to build a gospel movement that transforms lives at high schools and middle schools across a whole a region. Within this broad and challenging mission, this job has several clear roles:

  • Evangelist: We’re a gospel-ministry and all members of our team – especially those in leadership – are involved in sharing Christ. In addition to personally sharing Christ, Chapter Directors are responsible to instill this value into every level of the team and coach others to do the same.
  • Recruiter: We’re a volunteer-based ministry, always looking for good people to do their part to accelerate the mission before us. We believe that pretty much everyone we meet has some part to play in the mission, and we proactively make those connections.
  • Leadership Coach: NSP is a leadership-development organization. Everything we accomplish is done through people, so we continually equip students, volunteers, and team leaders to fully develop all the talents that God has given them. Your role will be one of influence, teaching, and inspiration, helping those under your care to grow into the good works that God has prepared for them to walk in.
  • Networker: Chapters are commissioned to reach schools across a geographic area. Surrounding each school is a Christian community of local churches and mature believers. You’ll work to build connections and partnerships with them, so that together you can reach the students in your areas of ministry.
  • Shepherd: Leading a team of people sometimes comes with interpersonal challenges (and sometimes crises). We look for Chapter Directors ready to guide and instruct people with grace and truth in the power of the Spirit.
  • Team Manager: Chapter Directors oversee part-time employees and volunteers, most of them college students. You’re responsible to ensure that all of them receive the training they need to be successful, and that they abide by NSP’s standards and protocols for ministry behavior.

Youth For Christ is a Christian youth mission which endeavors to reach unchurched high school and middle school students with the Good News of Jesus Christ. We are evangelism first and discipleship second. We partner with local churches to carry out our mission to the youth in public schools. Currently we engage over 2,500 students in the Tuscaloosa area. We are seeking a self-starter with a heart for lost kids. Two or more years of ministry experience and 4 year degree are preferred. The person we seek to hire will lead an outreach to one high school and one middle school. A leader who can mobilize college and other adult leaders is essential. Willingness to work across denominational lines, build church partnerships, build a financial support team, give attention to detail, keep up with many moving parts of the job and inspire others to join our mission are key.

THE EPC ESSENTIALS OF OUR FAITH

·       All Scripture is self-attesting and being Truth, requires our unreserved submission in all areas of life. The infallible Word of God, the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments, is a complete and unified witness to God’s redemptive acts culminating in the incarnation of the Living Word, the Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible, uniquely and fully inspired by the Holy Spirit, is the supreme and final authority on all matters on which it speaks. On this sure foundation we affirm these additional Essentials of our faith:

·       We believe in one God, the sovereign Creator and Sustainer of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. To Him be all honor, glory and praise forever!

·       Jesus Christ, the living Word, became flesh through His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit and His virgin birth. He who is true God became true man united in one Person forever. He died on the cross a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. On the third day He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where, at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He now is our High Priest and Mediator.

·       The Holy Spirit has come to glorify Christ and to apply the saving work of Christ to our hearts. He convicts us of sin and draws us to the Savior. Indwelling our hearts, He gives new life to us, empowers and imparts gifts to us for service. He instructs and guides us into all truth, and seals us for the day of redemption.

·       Being estranged from God and condemned by our sinfulness, our salvation is wholly dependent upon the work of God’s free grace. God credits His righteousness to those who put their faith in Christ alone for their salvation, thereby justifies them in His sight. Only such as are born of the Holy Spirit and receive Jesus Christ become children of God and heirs of eternal life.

·       The true Church is composed of all persons who through saving faith in Jesus Christ and the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit are united together in the body of Christ. The Church finds her visible, yet imperfect, expression in local congregations where the Word of God is preached in its purity and the sacraments are administered in their integrity; where scriptural discipline is practiced, and where loving fellowship is maintained. For her perfecting, she awaits the return of her Lord.

·       Jesus Christ will come again to the earth-personally, visibly, and bodily-to judge the living and the dead, and to consummate history and the eternal plan of God. “Even so, come, Lord Jesus.” (Rev. 22:20)

·       The Lord Jesus Christ commands all believers to proclaim the Gospel throughout the world and to make disciples of all nations. Obedience to the Great Commission requires total commitment to “Him who loved us and gave Himself for us.” He calls us to a life of self-denying love and service. “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” (Eph. 2:10)
