Job Description

Youth Director at Ft Sam Houston, Texas

Department:Field Ministry
Location:Jbsa Ft Sam Houston, TX

Club Beyond is looking for Youth Directors

Club Beyond is looking for men and women willing to step into the world of Military teens and invest in their lives. Could this be your call to be the person who offers consistency, friendship and conversations about faith and life? We are Christ-centered, welcoming kids from all backgrounds and denominations and building their faith and resiliency.

Our ideal candidate is spiritually mature, and competent communicator, capable of building a rich culture of fun, friendship, an adventure for middle through high schoolers.

Our Organizational Story

There are over 200 military installations around the world- “home” to over 300,000 military teens. These teens move an average of seven times during their school-aged years, and will say goodbye to more significant figures in their life by 18, than many will in their entire lifetime. Home isn’t a location for them, but a sense of belonging and community. The questions of identity and belonging that all teens face become even more difficult to answer in the midst of having to start over and meet new friends at each location.

This is where you can be the difference in military teen’s life! By being in their world, walking alongside them, and creating a community where they experience the truth of God’s love and purpose for them. Providing a space where they can develop friendships and connections, gives them a safe place to experience laughter, build hope, and generate the resiliency that life requires of us all.
