Pastor, Adult Groups – Young Married Adults

Reservoir Campus


Are you passionate about shepherding young married couples? Do you dream about training them in how to live “on mission” in their community? Do you love to develop leaders in the small group setting, who will in turn produce other leaders? If so, please keep reading.


Pinelake is a multi-campus congregation with venues in Clinton, Madison/Ridgeland, Brandon/Reservoir, and Starkville, Mississippi. Our campuses are bound together by one common vision and mission under one leadership team, and each campus has pastors who serve their local community of believers.  Pinelake's vision is to be a movement of God expectantly living out Christ-centered, Spirit-led, ongoing stories of Life Change. Pinelake Church is home to more than 9,000 attendees each week and was named to Outreach magazine’s “100 Largest Churches in America” and “100 Fastest- Growing Churches in America” for 2011. Pinelake Church is a multi-site congregation in Mississippi with campuses in Clinton, Madison, the Reservoir, and Starkville. Each of the four campuses has a ministerial staff that serves their local community of believers, under the leadership of its Campus Pastor. The campuses are bound together by one common vision and mission under one senior leadership team, led by Senior Pastor Chip Henderson and Senior Executive Pastor Tim Smith.


The ideal candidate for this position of Pastor, Adult Groups – Young Married Adults, is responsible for providing leadership for developing reproducing leaders among adult small groups at Pinelake Church’s Reservoir campus to reach the community, state and world for Christ.


A large portion of the role is to recruit (and work through) coaches and leaders who champion the planting of new, life-giving small groups in the community in order for married couples to “Learn from Christ, Live for Christ and Lead others to Christ.” In addition, you will serve as minister to our Adult Group coaches and leaders; maintain accurate data on group participation and activities; collect, share, and celebrate small group stories of life-change; personally model discipleship by investing in 1-2 men utilizing Pinelake’s discipleship program Foundations; and assist in the selection and/or development of group curriculum.

Pinelake Church is located in the heart of Rankin County. 


Rankin County is one of the fastest growing counties in Mississippi, located east of Jackson (capital). The county has an area of 800 square miles and may be thought of as a “bedroom” community environment to Jackson.  The Barnett Reservoir on the Pearl River is a popular spot for all kinds of water recreation, and Brandon boasts excellent family athletic facilities.  Home to Bloomfield outlet mall, up to 80 name brand stores, Bass Pro Shop, Mississippi Braves, and Dogwood Promenade, just to name a few.  Rankin County allows you to have that small town feel with all of the big city charm.  Jackson’s southern hospitability and slower pace makes it a great city to call home and raise a family.
