Job Description:



The Bridge Church is an Acts 29 friendly church in Spring Hill, TN that has grown from 80 to 500 since 2008. This growth curve coupled with a disproportionately large number of kids and students in our city, has created a growing need for leadership of our Kids and Student Ministries.


The Family Ministries Pastor will be the primary leader and visionary for all things Kids and Students. In a city with 40% of the population under the age of 18, this person must have big missional vision, be competent to build and lead large volunteer teams, entrepreneurial to creatively build ministries from the ground up in a leadership environment with a great deal of freedom, and have an unyielding love for Jesus and students. The Family Ministries Pastor will facilitate the development and implementation of effective ministry to families in our community and come alongside parents in the discipleship process of kids and students. To put it simply, we are looking for a godly, pastoral, experienced, and visionary leader who can join our pastoral team and saturate the enormous number of kids and students in our city with the gospel.

  • Effective communicator with preaching/teaching experience.
  • Demonstrated ability to recruit, develop, and empower volunteer leaders in healthy ways which promote their spiritual growth.

  • Willingness to fulfill the membership requirements of The Bridge. 
  • Preferred experience in leading a successful kids and/or student ministry.
  • B.A. or equivalent experience required (preferred Education or Ministry degree).
