WE'RE HIRING A FULL-TIME RECRUITER

Ablaze Ministries was created to transform parishes through dynamic youth ministry. We do this by forming youth ministers and providing consistent world-class youth ministry.

One of the biggest ways we do that is finding people who are passionate about youth ministry and placing them on a team that will form them to be the best youth minister they can! This year alone, we brought on 4 people who were new to youth ministry and they are already thriving.

This ministry is going strong – so strong that we have more and more parishes reaching out to us wanting to join our mission. We need to  find the missionaries that God has planned to serve these parishes.

We are looking for someone up to the challenge to recruit for a dynamic, growing, and ‘in demand’ ministry…Could that be you?

Let’s find out – think through your answers to the following questions:

  1. Do you have a relationship with Jesus that you couldn’t keep to yourself even if you wanted to (which you don’t)?
  2. Are you passionate about making sure the next generation of youth ministers finds the best possible job for themselves?
  3. Do you get energized by dreaming up new ideas?
  4. Are you committed to constantly learning and improving?
  5. Are you passionate about relational ministry?
  6. Are you excited to go to new places and meet new people?
  7. Do you work better on a team?

If you answered “yes” to ALL SEVEN of those questions, then you should definitely KEEP READING…

We are looking for a passionate disciple who is ready to:

🔗 CONNECT with hundreds of Catholic students and young professionals every month.

🔨 CREATE & BUILD relationships with universities & ministries across the country.

CONTRIBUTE to a team that’s passionate about building the Kingdom and transforming parishes.

If other people would describe you as one or more of these things we’d count that as a win.

We’re a small team, so we need someone who can step in and wear multiple hats.

  1. Recruiter – Well this should be obvious, it’s kind of in the title. We need
    someone who knows where to look, and attract the best team members.
  2. Internship Coordinator – This is part of our recruiting pipeline. You’ll need to  connect with potential interns and assist them in the application and hiring process. 
  3. Mission trips — This is a potential future project to invite more young adults to learn about and experience the mission of Ablaze. These could be within the U.S. or abroad.
  4. Strategist – You would need to strategically plan on how to best reach out to college students and other young adults to fill the recruiting pipeline.
  5. Writer – Never underestimate the power of the written word. From email content to social media posts, you’ll need strong writing chops too.
  6. Connector – We’re looking for someone who can find the right people for the right ministry position. This is both an art and a science.

What you’ll receive.

📺 A team of coworkers who are a family. Sometimes, we think we’re a TV show — knowing each other’s quirks, playing pranks on one another, and loving each other on our best and worst days.

♥️ A leader who cares about your relationship with Jesus. At Ablaze, we encourage one another in our prayer lives by praying together as a team and sharing resources for personal prayer.

🌎 A view of the world. You’ll be traveling. A lot. You will be sharing our story and get to know the stories of people all across the world. Some of them will even end up working with you!

The greatest chai-latte.

🛑 STOP, Quick skill check

We know you’re way more than the sum of your skills, but for a position like this there are some specific skills we’re looking for:

Recruiting Knowledge – If you don’t know where to begin in the recruiting process, this is definitely not the job for you. You should come in with ideas on how to creatively seek out and attract great members to our team.

Personality – The Recruiter will act as the face of Ablaze to all those applying. They must be personable, outgoing, and friendly.

Project Manager – You’ll need to be able to take existing projects and enhance them, as well as develop your own.

The bonus round

Here are a few extra things that will help you stand out from the crowd:

  • Fluent in at least one non-English language.
  • Parish or diocesan youth ministry experience.
  • Marketing experience.
  • A Catholic theology degree.

Let’s talk details

  • Full-Time. This is a full-time, salaried position.
  • In Bryan. Ablaze is based out of Bryan, TX – and you will have to relocate to Bryan for this position.
  • Frequent Travel. When there isn’t a pandemic happening, there is a significant amount of travel with this position (2-3 times per month). We’re looking for someone who sees frequent travel as a perk, not a negative.
  • We’re a nonprofit organization. Ablaze Ministries is a family of ministries (ProjectYM, Ablaze Youth, Beyond The Pew) – a Catholic nonprofit organization based out of Bryan, TX.
  • We’re ready for you to join the team. Our planned* start date for this position is January 2021, but we hope to have a decision made way sooner than that. (*The start date is negotiable.)

Yes, you get to move to Bryan, TX

In case you missed it above: this position does require relocation to Bryan, TX – Right next door to College Station, TX home of Texas A&M. Just about a 2 hour drive from Austin or Houston. And not far from Brenham, HOME OF BLUE BELL ICE CREAM!
