Emmanuel Church is excited about a new ministry position for Director of Youth Ministries! We are a congregation that is revitalized, Holy Spirit guided, holding firm to the truth of scripture and are growing and passionate about people knowing Jesus. We are in a rural community in western, Illinois surrounded by rolling hills close to the Mississippi River. There is an incredible need and ministry opportunity within our community for youth and thus our desire for this much needed position. Applications will be taken until the position is filled.
