Salary through Ministry Partner Development
The salary of this position, after being determined on a scale based on education and work-related experience, is funded through Ministry Partner Development, which is made possible in two ways: first, by donations made to Youth for Christ from family, friends, and acquaintances of a particular staff member, which enable Youth for Christ to care financially for that staff member; second, by the prayer of others. Ministry Partner Development is literally developing partnerships with others who will come alongside you, pray for you, and care for you. You’ll be amazed by the people who will want to partner with you and stand behind you and the mission of YFC.
Also, Ministry Partner Development acquaints each staff person with a real need to trust God’s provision. We have found that to begin in ministry by having to rely on the supply of our Heavenly Father, brings one face-to-face with the reality of faith. After all, faith is not a thought that surfaces in reflection or anticipation, but is that which occurs in the moment of action. To trust God for money can lead one into the habit of trusting Him for other spiritual essentials.
All successful candidates will receive training through YFC’s national Ministry Partner Development resources.
