Job Description:

The mission statement of Cross Church is “Reaching Northwest Arkansas, America, and the World for Jesus Christ,” and their story is truly a God-sized story. What began as a small town church has grown into a four-campus community of believers that reaches all of Northwest Arkansas. At each of their campuses, you’ll find friendly and warm people that are passionate about Jesus, family ministry opportunities that are personal and compassionate, and worship that will awaken your soul.


Pastor Ronnie Floyd has served as the Senior Pastor for 26 years. He is currently serving as President of the Southern Baptist Convention and is the General Editor for LifeWay’s Bible Studies for Life Curriculum Series, which is used in over 30,000 churches. Cross Church was recently recognized by Outreach Magazine as being one of the fastest growing churches in America and also one of the largest in weekly attendance. Cross Church has an average attendance of 9,000 across all campuses, and is the largest church in the state of Arkansas. 


The Lead Pastor of Student Ministry will have the incredible opportunity to build on and expand an already thriving Student Ministry at the Pinnacle Hills campus. The Lead Pastor of Student Ministry will seek to communicate vision through effective and relevant teaching for students in grades 6-12 at the Pinnacle Hills Campus. He will be a visionary leader who can build a thriving student ministry that is consistent with the vision and values of Cross Church. He will balance the call to reach lost students with the Gospel, baptize new believers, and disciple students to full maturity in Christ. He will be an effective developer of leaders among both students and adults. He will be a proven, high-capacity leader, able to thrive in a fast-paced environment, and willing and able to work collaboratively with the Ministry Team at Pinnacle Hills and the Student Ministry staff at the other Cross Church campuses.


The effective candidate for the Lead Pastor of Student Ministry will likely have 5-10 years of relevant experience directing and leading a large student ministry in a similar church setting, preferably with experience in multisite ministry. He will have track record of building teams including staff, volunteers and students and a demonstrated ability to grow a ministry in both numbers and spiritual depth.
