Roam around The Rock—talk with youth, play games with them, hang out, build relationships.

Seek to spend time with the youth rather than with other staff; we are here
to share Christ’s love with youth.

Sidewalk Monitor
Maintain order and safety on the sidewalk and keep an eye on the alley, taking notice of concerns to neighbors’ store fronts. Depending on the number of kids, be out with them or just inside the door.

Position Requirements

All Youth For Christ regular full time employees will be given the opportunity to be involved in the Stewardship functions of South Central Minnesota Youth For Christ (hereafter SCMYFC, or YFC.) These opportunities could include fund raising events, circle of influence/YFC donor contacts, and other opportunities as provided.
 Because the overriding religious purpose and mission of SCMYFC is to communicate and introduce the Gospel of Jesus Christ to young people and their families, and in that regard to make, educate and encourage life-long disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, it is very important that you as an employee in the movement of YFC be recognized as an associate minister of the Gospel. As an employee of YFC and an associate minister of the Gospel, YFC expects all employees to:
Seek God’s guidance and wisdom, through prayer and meditation, for the

organization as a whole as well as for specific ministry initiatives.

Participate and lead regular times of prayer, devotion and worship as a regular aspect of your role within YFC.
Teach and preach from the Holy Bible at YFC staff meetings, conferences, camps and events.
Additionally, YFC employees will have an opportunity to be commissioned or licensed as a minister of the Gospel through the established YFC process, and/or ordained by an outside body recognized by SCMYFC. As such, the following additional responsibilities of a spiritual nature will apply to this position:
Perform sacramental functions such as the taking of communion and leading times of corporate prayer, confession and praise.
Perform and lead religious ceremonies such as weddings, baptism and funerals when called upon by staff and other members of the YFC community.
