Position Summary

Much like leadership positions available at Christian camps, the Campus Life Center Coordinator(s) will live onsite at the Campus Life Center (CLC) of Youth For Christ while caretaking the facility, stewarding organizational relationships and guests, while running YFC ministry sites. 

Living onsite represents a unique and advantageous ministry opportunity for the person(s) called to this missionary lifestyle. The CLC Operations Coordinator should expect to be immersed in youth ministry, and must be flexible and adaptive to site visitors, immediate site needs, and dynamic circumstances. 

Campus Life programming challenges unchurched students with the life-changing message of Jesus Christ in a way that is real, relevant, and responsible; disciples student-leaders in peer-to-peer ministry; and faithfully executes the Relational Ministry Actions (Contacting, Building Times, Club, Appointments, Small Groups, and Student Leadership) and the Five Essentials of Fruitful and Sustainable Ministry Sites.

Primary Duties and Responsibilities:

1) Campus Life Programming: 16 hours/week 

  • Develop a team of volunteers to engage students in Christ-sharing relationships.
    • Continue, develop, and enact the Relational Ministry Actions of Campus Life Programming on campus at Kastner and Duncan (or where placed):
      • Campus Life Club once a week, student leader meetings, appointments, building times, events, etc.  
      • Provide opportunities for youth to make an informed decision to become a follower of Jesus.

2) Overseeing the Facility: 5 hours/week 

  • Coordinate use with partners, keeping the calendar, opening and closing the facility, turning on heat or A/C prior to a ministry meeting, doing a walk-through to make sure utilities are off afterward. 
    • Care for, troubleshoot, fix, and improve facility functionality.
    • Be prepared to open/close facility as needed. Example: a church youth group using the facility from 6pm-9pm on a Wednesday night will need Coordinator to open and close.
    • Be responsible for the security of property. This includes assuring that alarms are set appropriately, equipment is stored, and doors are locked.
    • Additional light maintenance as needed.
    • Daily care to include cleaning (dishes, refrigerator, countertops, restock and cleaning after and before every facility use) and general spot cleaning of facility.

3)  Administration: 3 hours/week

  • Ensure that volunteers are in place, communicated with, and well trained to serve youth.
    • Connect students with local church youth ministries to the extent possible. 
    • Develop and foster mutual partnerships with like-minded adults, parents, school administrators and educators, pastors and church leaders, and members of the business community.
    • Prepare and submit regular ministry reports as requested by supervisors.

4) General Staff Expectations: 5 hours/week

  • Attend staff meetings, retreats, and all staff events.
    • Fulfill ministry fundraising expectations as agreed upon (sending quarterly Support Letters, seeking in-kind donations, asking for support for the ministry directly, and participating in every “all-staff” ministry or fundraising event unless excused by the Executive Director, etc).
    • Carry out the agreed upon work schedule, communicating variations in advance.
    • Maintain a vital and growing personal relationship with Jesus Christ and demonstrate that relationship through a morally upstanding lifestyle that is in keeping with biblical principles (see YFC Lifestyle Standards at yfcnow.org/staff_lifestyle_standards).
    • Demonstrate involvement in a local church through regular attendance, relationships with other members and participation in ministry programs and events.
    • Fully embrace the Youth For Christ vision and mission, and statement of faith (see yfcnow.org/about/mission).
