Job Description:
Are you ready to become an integral member of our pastoral team as we pursue taking our church "to the next level'? Do you have a proven track record of growing a congregation spiritually from seeker to believer to fully-devoted follower of Jesus Christ? Grace Fellowship U.M.C. is actively seeking qualified candidates for the newly-created role of Discipleship Pastor. Grace Fellowship is a relatively young (11 years old) and growing congregation, and is currently averaging 2,700 in Sunday morning attendance. Grace Fellowship desires to yoke with an experienced and energetic ministry leader who can help us take discipleship to the “next level”.
You will be the champion – the “leader of leaders” - for discipleship at Grace Fellowship. Working closely with the Executive Pastor and leading other members of the pastoral staff (Children’s Pastor, Jr. High Youth Pastor, Sr. High Youth Pastor, and Small Groups Pastor), you will establish, implement and carry out a discipleship plan that encourages all ages at Grace Fellowship to become fully-devoted followers of Jesus Christ. We want both an “architect” and a “builder”; someone who can both dream and implement, and who will help us carry out a significant portion of our eight-year strategic plan (check out “C.O.M.P.A.S.S.” on our web site at
We are looking for someone with a healthy walk and who practices the spiritual disciplines. As a leader of leaders, the ideal candidate has strong leadership skills, is a team player, has both the desire and ability to pour into others, who has several years of direct experience leading or co-leading a large, church-wide discipleship movement, a true passion for discipleship, strong people skills, will be highly organized, and will be energized by working with a broad variety of spiritual personality types.
Well-located within the heart of the Cinco Ranch community in Katy, Texas, Grace Fellowship attracts a broad spectrum of seekers, new believers, and mature Christians.
We are a Bible-believing, contemporary worship congregation. Our vision is to be a house of prayer for all nations, and our mission is to equip you to love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength and your neighbor as yourself.
We are offering a very competitive salary and benefits package, including paid medical (for the employee), paid vacation, long-term and short-term disability coverage, and a 401(k) plan.
Qualified candidates (i.e. you truly meet the criteria outlined above) are encouraged to email their resume to Executive Pastor Mitch Peairson at
