Dennis Beckner's résuméLast updated
I'm looking to either join a youth ministry team or lead a youth ministry.
I've been doing youth ministry since 1994, both as a paid youth worker and as a volunteer. Since 1999, I have been serving with the Student Ministry of Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, CA.
My service at Saddleback Church:
- Launched our recovery ministry for students (The Landing) -- Recruited and trained leaders -- Taught the large group sessions -- Oversaw the entire ministry -- Grew the ministry from 0 to 75 - Lead weekly Bible studies for small groups - Serve as a leader for camps and special events - Organize Discipleship Retreat - Write sermons
- Organized Ministry Fairs and follow up for an audience of 20,000+ members, and conferences for 3500+ attendees
Graduated college from Point Loma Nazarene University (San Diego, CA) in 1994 with a bachelor's degree in Religion with an emphasis in Bible
Graduated high school from El Camino Real (Placentia, CA) in 1989
Computer programs: Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, Google Documents and Spreadsheets, Microsoft Office (including Microsoft Access)
Planning and running events
I am single. I've never been married and I have no children.
I am willing to relocate.
My preference is a church with a strong vision with congregational support. I've been serving at a multi-site church. While that is not necessarily what I'm looking for, that's the level of vision I'm looking for - a church dedicated to reaching out and possesses a growth strategy - both numerically and in the individual lives of the members.
