1. He has a heart for the skeptic, unchurched kids in our city.
2. He models a vibrant, growing relationship with Jesus Christ, and a life congruent with biblical mandates for leaders (1 Tim. 3:1-7).
3. He’s teachable, with a desire to take his leadership ability up a notch each year.
4. He thinks “team,” and is secure enough to disagree without being disagreeable.
5. He loves his family and is committed to a healthy work/home balance.
6. He has a bachelor’s degree and strong on-the-job experience in youth ministry and basic administrative skills.
7. He is an entrepreneurial self-starter and likes to bring fresh ideas to the table.
8. He’s a multiplier. He does not attempt to do it all and to be at everything, but invests himself in others.
