Grace Fellowship Church is praying for a Small Groups Pastor / Director to oversee small groups across our church.
Grace Fellowship is a healthy, vibrant disciple-making church with campuses in Timonium, MD, and Shrewsbury, PA. A downtown Baltimore City campus is under development. In addition to being a light in our communities, we believe God has called us to be a resource engine for the entire region, partnering with others to advance God's kingdom and will "on earth as it is in heaven".
This begins here in our back yard and extends locally, regionally, and across the globe. Authentic biblical community (small groups) has been part of our DNA since we launched 28 years ago with four couples meeting in a living room.
Since we desire that each person in our body participate in a small group, we are seeking a community life "champion" capable and responsible for making that vision a reality.
We are looking for someone who is highly relational AND is skilled and experienced in building small group ministry and organization. This person must thrive in a collaborative team environment and enjoy partnering with staff and laity to fulfill God's call for us.
