The West Side Brethren in Christ Church exists to help people come to know God personally and develop into mature followers of Jesus Christ. We believe the Bible is the divinely inspired, authoritative and reliable Word of God (2 Tim 2:16). We espouse Brethren in Christ Doctrine. See Articles of Faith and Doctrine.

Located just west of Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, the church was established in 1987 as a church plant by five other Franklin County congregations. Since then the church has grown to 100 members and an average attendance of 120 on Sunday morning.

We are seeking a part-time (15 hours/week) youth pastor to teach and shepherd our youth  (age 12 – 18) to become mature followers of Jesus Christ. We also desire the youth pastor to develop a program to reach youth in the surrounding community in order to minister to the myriad needs in youth culture today.

Experience in youth ministry a plus but not required.
