Job description


Bozeman is a fast-growing mountain college town located in beautiful Southwest Montana. Bridger Bowl and Big Sky ski resorts are within 45 minutes, and it is only 90 minutes to Yellowstone National Park. With an amazing downtown, hiking and mountain biking everywhere and world-class fly fishing and ice climbing, this is a dream destination for those who love the outdoors. Bozeman averages 300 days of sunshine. Due to the dry climate, summers are pleasant with warm days and cool nights. Mild winter weather is not unusual, and more than a week of consistently frigid weather is rare. Google this place ... it really is this amazing.

We are looking for a motivated individual to continue to grow our high school ministry in Bozeman, which has been around for more than 50 years at our two high schools, Bozeman High and Gallatin High (opened in the Fall of 2020). You would be joining a team with a two other full-time staff (an area director and WyldLife director), high school teacher staff in the neighboring town of Belgrade, and part-time administrative assistant. We have a volunteer college ministry as well at Montana State University.

There is an existing high school volunteer team ready and waiting to continue to grow under your leadership.


Build healthy high school ministry in Bozeman by executing and growing in the five core ministry functions of Young Life:

Spiritual Leadership — Grow in your own relationship with Jesus Christ, and your capacity to lead others in the same direction.

Leadership Development — Train and equip volunteer leaders (many of them college aged) who will join you in reaching every kid at both Bozeman High School and Gallatin High School.

Direct Ministry — Continue to help grow our high school ministry toward the furthest out kid.

Resource Development — With the help of Young Life’s Personal Donor Development coaching, raise $20,000 in annual personal support that will be matched and participate with the Gallatin Valley committee in area fundraising.

Ministry Support — Work with an existing area administrator to ensure excellence is maintained in the areas of communication, finances, etc.


  • Young Life team leader experience (preferably two to three years).
  • A healthy, growing personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
  • A passion for high school kids.
  • A passion for inspiring and casting vision to your volunteer team.
  • Proven relational and leadership skills with both kids and adults.
  • Demonstrated verbal and written communication skills.
  • Ability to manage multiple projects.
  • Willingness to raise personal financial support of at least 75% of salary.
  • Commitment to making an impact on the area’s growth toward more towns, schools and kids.


This staff associate position in the Gallatin Valley Area offers:

  • A unique opportunity to explore a long-term calling to Young Life staff and/or full-time ministry through training, field experience and a mentor relationship.
  • Training/equipping at three levels:
  • Experience-based training with a staff mentor.
  • Participation in the regional training group with other staff associates across the Mountain West Region.
  • Participation in national training schools and seminary-level classes.
  • Growth in your walk with Christ and in your spiritual leadership alongside other staff who focus on depth in Christ, love for each other, and commitment to every kid.
  • Supervision by, and support from, a local area director who is providing leadership in the area.
  • This position is full-time and offers the standard Young Life benefits package including: medical, dental, vision, 401(k), health club reimbursement and flexible paid time off.
  • Pay will be based on experience.
