God’s favor has clearly been upon Windwood providing us fifty-seven acres on which to support many ministries and events both within our faith community as well as the from the greater NW Houston area. We are looking with great anticipation for God to lead the right person to answer His call to help love and lead our youth in the adventure of the Christian faith. The gym, youth building, café, disc golf course, soccer & softball fields provide many opportunities to engage our students as well as many who do not have a Youth ministry, they call home.

Windwood worships about 350 per Sunday with a membership of just over 1000. Windwood Youth average participations; Sunday mornings 45 (Sr. High 30, Jr. High 15), Sunday p.m., Sr. High 20. Wednesday night, Sr. High 15-20, Jr. High 15-20 (Wed. nights)

The full-time Youth Director we are seeking will be a devoted follower of Christ Jesus, gifted in connecting with and teaching of High School & Junior High students.  Windwood has a committed team of lay-leaders with passion for Jesus and our students already serving and ready to come alongside the right person.

Connecting with students not only on our turf but theirs as well via school events and gatherings is of great value. Fun is a big part of youth ministry, but not merely for the sake of numbers, for it is easy to mistake participation for transformation.

Our denominational affiliation is with ECO, A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians whose mission it is to “build flourishing churches that make disciples of Jesus Christ.”  We believe God is doing a new thing within this movement and our faith community.  This is an exciting time to join our team.

–the power of prayer to bring us into intimate relationship with God

–worshiping God with our whole lives

–living the Christian life in the community

–equipping God’s people for ministry

We are trusting that God will lead the right person to the right place at just the right time.
