Student Minister

  • Family Ministry (Youth, Children, etc.)
  • Cypress, TX

Website Risen Church

In a world of distraction, shallow entertainment and weak convictions we desire for our students, leaders and parents to cultivate depth, wisdom and experience robust discipleship as a part of our student ministry. Our ministry is grounded in God’s Word and is served by faithful men and women who volunteer their energy to create an outward oriented ministry that is connecting with students, equipping them to obey God’s word, and providing students a place to belong.

We’re looking for a student minister to lead, equip and pray with our ministry to create a place where the Spirit may be present, forming young men and women to graduate high school with the confidence, tools and conviction to move into adulthood passionately following Christ.

Risen is a 9 year old church in the NW suburbs of Houston. Cypress Texas is a fast growing suburb and our student ministry is uniquely situated with access to a significant number of students in the greater Cypress/Tomball area. Our church building is located at the intersection of 3 large school districts, Cy- Fair ISD, Tomball ISD and Waller ISD with Cy-Fair being the 3rd largest school district in Texas. Tomball ISD is currently building an elementary, intermediate, and high school complex adjacent to our church property that is scheduled to open by 2025.

As the Student Minister you’ll be responsible to help us continue to implement our values of:

Connecting – Providing tangible avenues for students to connect in meaningful, gospel shaped relationships with Christ, peers and mentors.

Equipping –  Learning to not only study God’s Word, but obey his Word, experience the joy of following Jesus and share the work of Christ with others.

Belonging – Providing ways for students to experience and understand their role in our church body and their role in the home, school and workplace. This value is important as we desire our students to participate in the life and rhythms of our Missional Communities, experience intergenerational fellowship and move toward gospel-oriented familial relationships with those that are unlike them in age, life stage and lifestyle.

As Student Minister you’ll also have the opportunity to innovate within the ministry by creating, giving life and structure to our values, building a student leadership team committed to the mentoring and spiritual growth of students who desire to serve and lead within this ministry and creating policies and procedures for our student ministry. Safety is one of our top priorities and as the student minister, you will help create a greater framework for developing a ministry where students are physically, spiritually, and emotionally safe.

If you are interested, please submit your resume and two references who have supervised your student ministry leadership to our team at Please also include any relevant recordings of your teaching in a church context. Thank you for your interest!
