Job Description:


Imagine serving on a pastoral team where there is a healthy community of grace...permission to be broken, and permission to struggle. When it arises, conflict is not avoided; it’s addressed appropriately. A Leadership Team member describes the environment as one in which “We walk together in our brokenness, dealing with heart and root issues.”
