Youth Ministry Interview Questions

Filed under: Youth Ministry — Neil @ 7:00 am

While reorganizing some old documents & notes recently I ran across a list of questions I used when interviewing for the position I currently hold.  I went into the interview w/ this list of questions:

  • How important is my family life to you & this organization?
  • How do you define success?
  • How would you describe a successful youth minister?
  • How does the youth ministry fit into the church’s vision?
  • Who performs my job review?
  • Who do I report to?
  • Who are your direct reports?
  • Who is your direct report?
  • How do I fit into your vision?
  • How are job reviews handled?
  • Who sets the youth ministry budget?  What’s the approval process?
  • What is the approval process for funds?
  • How would you describe your organization?
  • What is your leadership style?
  • Who doe the church/youth ministry attract?  Who do you want it to attract?

Plus, a few more questions about leadership styles & such.

The best resource for youth ministry interview preparations (& just about any other organizational skills) is Youth Ministry Management Tools.
