YOUTH/STUDENT MINISTRIES PASTOR Freshwater Community Church - Saint Bonifacius, MN About Freshwater Church: Freshwater Church is a Christian Missionary Alliance church in St. Bonifacius, MN, with a multi-site campus in Waconia, and a bilingual campus in Glencoe. All five services are nearly identical, both for children and adults (except Freshwater bilingual). Freshwater exists to reach non-believing individuals, connect them with other Christians, help them grow in their faith, challenge the growing to serve others, and honor God with their life. Our weekly average church-wide attendance is between 800-1000, and we are growing from week-to-week. Our Student Ministries meets at the Waconia campus location, and is growing at a fast pace (with approximately 100 students in weekly attendance) and is in a very healthy place with an amazing core team of leaders and a proven teaching system and programming calendar. Staff Core Values Infectious Fun: Our staff potential is greatest when there's joy in being a team. Balancing work and play, we create environments that create fun and togetherness. Contagious Care: We prioritize people because we care about them. Therefore, we do our best to do whatever it takes to get the job done. Impactful Excellence: With our given resources, we intentionally lean into our strengths to do the best we can to glorify God and build up people. Spirit-led Soul Care: Since we can't give what we don't have, we will invest in a healthy body, mind, and soul in order to stay centered in Christ. Strategic Flexibility: Because ministry can be messy, we commit to collaborate with others and improvise when necessary to get the job done. Unwavering Accountability: Because the eternal impact we have is so important, we hold one another accountable for doing the work God has called us to do.
