Southern Baptist


New Song Fellowship is a Southern Baptist church in the Kempsville area of Virginia Beach. We are seeking a youth director who will lead our students to follow Christ and impact the world with the gospel.

We have four main priorities for this position. (1) Someone who can bring strong, biblical, engaging, age-appropriate teaching for our students. (2) Someone who can relate well and build healthy, encouraging relationships with our students. (3) Someone who can plan and execute engaging fellowship activities for our students. And (4) someone who will lead collaboratively with church leadership, parents, and volunteers for a well-rounded, healthy youth ministry that integrates well with the church as a whole.

We are a small church (approximately average Sunday morning attendance is 100) with an awesome group of teenagers, many of whom are spiritually mature and ready to be challenged in the Word. For youth events and special activities we can have 20-30 youth participate. Average youth attendance is 10 on Sunday mornings. We anticipate that growing significantly when a strong Sunday morning teaching program is in place.

Our church holds to the Baptist Faith & Message (2000) as our statement of faith. We partner with the Southern Baptist Convention, the SBC of Virginia, and the Bridge Network of Churches. We are elder-led, theologically conservative, and evangelical in perspective.

Our ministry team leaders, including our youth director, are considered deacons so we are looking for someone who meets the biblical requirements in 1 Timothy 3:8-13. New Song has both male and female ministry team leaders and thus we are open to this youth director position being filled by either a male or female leader.

This position is a volunteer role at this time. We believe there is potential to expand this role into a part-time staff position at some point in the future, depending on a number of factors. But at this point, candidates should be willing to serve as a volunteer.

Previous volunteer experience in a growing, high-quality youth ministry setting will be a significant asset to any candidate’s resume.


Discipleship & Bible Teaching

  • Ensure a quality & well-prepared Sunday AM teaching time in a small group setting, during the 9:30am Bible Study hour. The youth director may teach or other youth volunteer(s).
  • Ensure a quality & well-prepared Wednesday night discipleship gathering. This time slot may include games, fellowship time, and/or music, along with 20-30 minutes of teaching & Bible study time. We envision the youth director doing a lot of the teaching in this setting, but are flexible to develop a vision that goes in another direction.
  • Work with pastor/elders to choose curriculum that’s biblically sound, relevant, and engaging for our students.


  • Coordinate & plan an event calendar far enough in advance that preparations for events are not rushed & can be advertised.
  • Schedule quality volunteers & enough help for youth events.
  • Provide training & instruction for volunteers.
  • Work with pastor to plan large-scale youth events like camp, mission trips, concerts,
    multiday trips, etc... to align with church calendar.
  • Coordinate fundraisers as needed for special events.

Relationship Building

  • Form intentional mentor & discipleship relationships with youth.
  • Keep pastor & elders informed of concerns with particular students who may be struggling
    or where there may be other pastoral concerns.
  • Be willing to abide by best safety and security practices – boundaries put in place for the
    protection of students and youth workers.

Communication with Elders, Parents, Volunteers

  • Regular & open communication with pastor & elders about the vision, direction, and specifics of the youth ministry.
  • Keep parents regularly informed about upcoming events and all areas of the youth ministry.
  • Recruit and deploy high-quality adults in youth ministry to maximize the number of role
    models & adults who are able to impact the lives of our students.
