Wilson Young Life is seeking a full-time area director to lead and grow the Young Life ministry in Wilson, N.C. Our community of believers is looking for a strong leader who is able to invest his or her time in growing a team of volunteers, committee members and donors while sharing the gospel and spreading God’s love to local area high school and college students.

Wilson Young Life is somewhat new to the area, beginning almost five years ago. The area has an active and dedicated committee and an enthusiastic leadership team made up of young adults and college students. We serve in three area high schools — two public and one private — and this year we have seen the largest amount of growth in Young Life College at Barton.

Wilson, N.C., is a vibrant community with approximately 50,000 people, located 45 miles east of Raleigh. It has all the amenities of a large city, but with the benefits of small town living. Wilson is home to Barton College — a small, private college with an established Young Life presence. Our incredible team of committee members and volunteer leaders are eager to welcome our new area director and are committed to making sure our director has a smooth transition into our community.
