The campus pastor executes the mission and vision of Richwoods at the “local” campus level appropriate to the size and scale of the campus and is accountable to the executive pastor. The campus pastor is the primary pastoral connection and leader of the
DNA Champion: The campus pastor is the leading proponent and promoter of the mission, vision, and values of Richwoods at the campus level and is responsible to effectively establish and execute the mission, vision, and values of Richwoods
at the campus.
Shepherd: The campus pastor is the primary shepherd of the people at the campus and is responsible for relationally connecting with them. The campus pastor will implement and ensure pastoral care, including, but not limited to, weddings,
funerals, hospital visitations, counseling, and the implementation of Richwoods’ missional strategy and its measurements.
Development: The campus pastor will locally implement Richwoods’ staff and volunteer leadership development strategy and oversee the execution of Richwoods’ spiritual formation process at the campus ministry level.
Campus Evaluation: The campus pastor will provide ongoing assessment of campus health indicators (budgets, staff ratios, dashboards, missional strategy, etc.) to the executive pastor. The campus pastor will also lead the campus to realize
its potential within the multi-site structure so that the campus becomes a healthy contributor of both financial and volunteer resources within a predetermined and reasonable time frame.
Leadership Expectations: Relying on a larger staff and Central Services for support, the campus pastor will lead with strategic and visionary skills, developing and delegating staff in much the same way a head football coach works with coaches
who specialize in specific areas of the game. Thus, the campus pastor leads through the campus staff, nurturing and developing their skills to move the campus forward cohesively in a way that ensures the highest level of quality Richwoods has to offer in
ministry programs. The campus pastor should also be skilled at connecting groups of visitors to the systems of assimilation at the campus level and should be strategically visible in campus-specific community outreach.
