Youth Pastor Job OverviewYouth Pastors work with young people and adults, typically in churches and sometimes in other youth organizations. A youth pastor is often a mentor and a spiritual guide for a church's young attendees, and is also tasked with teaching the Bible to young kids. The ability to teach and communicate with a wide age range is key for a youth pastor, as he or she might find herself working with not only children in the church, but in the broader community as well. Successful youth pastors often move to Associate Pastor or Senior Pastor, or go into another part of the education field to become a Postsecondary Religion and Philosophy Teacher. Job duties for a youth pastor often include:
- Providing adolescents with spiritual guidance
- Conducting the church's youth ministry
- Speaking publicly to groups of youths and adults
- Demonstrating expertise regarding the teachings of the Bible
