Job Description:

Mountain Lake Church (Mountain Lake) is a non-denominational congregation with a strong vision and track record for reaching the unchurched. The trademark of Mountain Lake is a heart for lost people and a laser focus on the mission of reaching the unreached. Located in the northern corridor of the Atlanta Metro area, the church is far enough away from the city and suburbs to be out of the span of care of Atlanta’s largest churches, creating a prime opportunity for reaching unreached people. The average attendance exceeds 2,300, with over 70 percent of all attendees having encountered faith and been baptized by Mountain Lake. Church planters have sought out the advice and counsel of Mountain Lake and, an organization founded by the Senior and Executive Pastors of Mountain Lake.


Mountain Lake's mission is simple: Give people a place to belong in a healthy relationship with God and others, help people become more like Jesus, and to bless the world. One will see the mission unfold in the above three circles. Mountain Lake believes that the best way to experience the fullness of the Mountain Lake mission is at the intersection of these three circles. The bold life.


After planting and building Mountain Lake Church into a thriving, growing church, the founding Senior Pastor, Shawn Lovejoy, and the Mountain Lake leadership team are searching for Shawn's successor who will lead Mountain Lake into its next chapter as a church. The new Senior Pastor will be an excellent communicator. All of Mountain Lake's campuses have live teaching, so the new Senior Pastor will ideally have experience working with a highly collaborative Teaching Team. They will ideally have a teaching style that is fun, conversational, and vulnerable as they teach the truth in love. The Senior Pastor must be comfortable in their own skin, not insecure or defensive. Both the Senior Pastor and his wife must be emotionally healthy and have high relational intelligence as they love each other and the church well.


The new Senior Pastor must have been a Senior Pastor before, managing a budget in excess of $1 million. It is preferred that they have a Master of Divinity or equivalent. They must be a strong leader of high capacity leaders, as they inspire the Mountain Lake staff to achieve the vision of Mountain Lake Church. They will believe and cast a big vision to which God is calling Mountain Lake. The Senior Pastor will be an excellent executor who leads his team by example. Most importantly, the Senior Pastor will have a relentless love for Jesus as he reaches the Cumming community with His saving grace.
