Our community consists of students, young people, singles and families of all shapes and sizes. God has transformed our lives, so we gather together to demonstrate our love for God, love for people, and to serve our local and global communities. 


At The Woods Church, the arts matter. In fact, there are few things as important to us creating a worship environment that is both excellent and free of distraction. At this time, we are looking for a Technical Director that is passionate about partnering with our Worship and Arts team to create dynamic environments of worship where people can enter into the presence of God.
