Southwinds Church of Tracy, an exciting, growing church of 1200 attenders in the San Francisco Bay Area, is seeking an Executive Pastor to join our leadership team. We are a purpose-driven, small group-based church that connects with believers and seekers across the West San Joaquin Valley through culturally relevant biblical teaching and modern, high-energy worship.

  • Significant experience (5+ years) in upper level business management or larger church (500+ attenders), with demonstrated experience in relevant areas (human resources, finance, operations and strategic planning).
  • Results-oriented self-starter with a track record of leadership in a growing church.
  • Demonstrated skill at working with staff and maintaining accountability to plans and goals.
  • Creativity in maximizing resources and basic technological competency.
  • Graduate degree desirable (in fields such as Business, Technology, Finance and/or Biblical Studies).

 The Executive Pastor will report to the Lead Pastor and will serve on the Elder Board. Compensation will be competitive and dependent on qualifications. If you feel led to use your passion, skill and experience to help us reach our community and region for Christ, email resume to
