At Youth Specialties, nothing gets us more excited than new opportunities to partner with churches in student ministry. YS Search is designed to help churches find the right personnel for their open job. We pull in all of our experience working with youth pastors and understanding healthy youth ministries to assist our church partnerships that are in the middle of a leadership transition. On the flip-side we also partner with the applicant/candidate as they walk through pursuing these open opportunities.
Brian Aaby, the director of YS Search, has operated on both sides of the Youth Ministry search equation; as a youth pastor searching for a healthy church and as a part of youth pastor search teams. Brian says, “I know from experience that it’s not an easy transition and I know how much I wish the resources of YS Search had been available to me.”
Here’s how it works
YS Search partners with churches in transition to provide a health assessment, a strategic plan for necessary adjustments that need to be made before new leadership comes into play, and a recruitment team that vets all the best candidates according to the church’s needs.
YS Search partners with applicants that are looking for a transition of their own by utilizing all of our church partnerships and championing you and your abilities.
Our goal is for YS Search to be the outside help, perspective, and leadership for both our church partners and the applicants so that we can continue to see healthy ministries lead students to find an follow Jesus.
