about the job
Our youth program teaches that Christianity is a message of good news for bad people. The goal of the youth program is that every student understands this truth. The role of the youth director is to cultivate community and present the Gospel by being intentional in relationships, weaving the Gospel into their everyday lives, and creating a sense of belonging in the Sonlight community. You can read more about our ministry values below.
The gospel is the heartbeat of Sonlight Church. It is where we find our identity. It is what motivates us to love our neighbors. It is what frees us to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.
Lynden is small but growing agricultural community in Northwest Washington. With views of Mount Baker to the east, the San Juan Islands to the west, Canada 5 miles north and Seattle 2 hours south, there's no lack of adventure or beauty wherever you turn. Lynden has a growing population of roughly 15,000 yet has maintained its small town feel, values and culture evident through its thriving historic downtown with locally owned boutiques and restaurants and its numerous community festivals and parades held throughout the year.
