connection and leader of the campus.
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.

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 other campuses, key volunteers, and Central Services for support, the campus pastor is very present and hands on in the ongoing ministry of the campus, leading with skills much like those of a shepherd

at connecting individuals to the larger mission of the campus and should be highly visible with key volunteers in campus-specific community outreach.
