Do you have the ability to teach and communicate in a class setting and do so in a team environment?


Can you work with our team to increase the number of people serving in ministry, improve our care/follow-up to new believers and create systems that see ever more people taking the step to be baptized and becoming members of the church?


Do you enjoy recruiting volunteers and working with them to create a great environment on Sundays for everyone who attends - especially first time guests?

Are you interested in helping a growing church continue to grow?


Do you have a high view of ministry and of  'serving as part of discipleship'?


This is not a pastoral care position, but a leadership, administrative, equipping position.
