On our Tampa campus, currently, we serve approximately 50-60 students throughout our weekly programming, which involves a Tuesday night community night (free dinner and small groups) and Wednesday worship night (a 60-75 minute worship service). Our students run the full gamut of faith commitment - from timid faith explorer to seasoned and frustrated deconstructionist, from eager follower of Jesus to agnostic.

The vision of USF Wesley is for every student to have the opportunity to experience authentic Christian community, to grow in personal and spiritual maturity as they are formed in the image of Christ, and to develop a life of impact, in service to God and others.

We are hiring for a 20-hour per week Assistant Director position, ideally to be filled quickly.

The assistant director will work with the executive director to oversee the ministry and ensure programming happens smoothly. Required hours will center around 20 hours per week. Occasionally, more heavily-programmed weeks will require additional time and presence. The assistant director is expected to attend all weekly programming, except where previously arranged, and to be present for any and all trips and retreats.

Tasks will be wide-ranging - worship planning, small group leadership, trips to Sam’s, graphic design (based on skill set), promotions, social media management, calendar setting in cooperation with students and director, residential staff management, individual and small group discipleship/pastoral care, email and phone call contacts, event management and/or set-up and tear-down, and filling in for the director in her/his absence. Relational ministry with students is a critical component of every aspect of this job.

The assistant director will demonstrate unquestionable integrity of faith and life. Consistent personal faith practice is expected and weekly prayer time will be part of work responsibilities/hours.

Task-oriented and self-motivated

Reliable

Spiritually mature - capable of dialoguing about the complexities of faith from a place of personal conviction

Confident leading various forms of discipleship - possibly leading a small group, with or without a student staff member; possibly guiding one-on-one discipleship with a small number of students

In the midst of consistent relational ministry, maintains appropriate professional distance from residential staff (that is, the students are not fulfilling the primary social needs of the AD)

Some experience with worship planning and/or familiarity with A/V equipment

Decent skills in administration (not highest priority but some skills needed)

Exceptional delegation - student involvement in leadership, in both small and large ways, is critical to the long-term success of the ministry
