Crosspointe Church was founded in 1997 with a vision to reach their friends and families with a new kind of church – one that was relentlessly focused on removing every unnecessary obstacle that might prevent someone from getting to know and commit themselves to Jesus. They first met in a local movie theater, where 320 people showed up that first Sunday, and they later transitioned to a nearby middle school. After moving to their current permanent facility in 2003, the church has continued to grow, with over 2,200 people now attending each week.


The vision has always been to be a safe place for those who are spiritually curious but disenchanted with what they’ve experienced in more traditional settings. It is a place that allows people to explore what trusting Christ could mean for them, to ask questions, and wrestle with the real challenges of what it means to follow Christ in today’s world. As a way to continue to serve the community from behind the scenes, Crosspointe is embarking on a new $30M building project that includes a full-scale, state of the art recreation and community facility that will be leased back to the local YMCA. The church is well known for its commitment to serving the community and the world. 


Crosspointe is strategically located near two large High Schools. With a large portion of the new YMCA building devoted to providing opportunities for students to gather and connect, Crosspointe is looking for a gifted, relational, and strategically-minded High School Pastor to build a dynamic High School ministry that will reach students who are currently involved at Crosspointe as well as students who live in the surrounding community. The High School Pastor at Crosspointe Church will be responsible for creating engaging and challenging environments for high school students to discover and experience Christ, connect with others, and be mentored along the journey.


The High School Pastor is expected to think strategically about the growth of High School Ministry. They will maintain relationships with students and parents, as well as develop and grow the adult volunteers within the High School Ministry. The Pastor to High School Students will lead in inspiring students to build and sustain a growing relationship with Jesus Christ in a way that reflects the overall vision and “flow” of Crosspointe Church. This culture is thoroughly relational, grace-driven, safe, honest, Christ anchored, and fun. The High School Pastor will work closely with the Pastors to Middle School and College Students to create a holistic ministry that will reach and engage students wherever they are on their spiritual journey. They will work together to come alongside families to better enrich the quality of the relationships between students and their parents.


The successful candidate will have a proven track record of working in a setting committed to reaching the unreached with a high degree of innovation, recruitment, and retention of new members and volunteers. Proven experience in creative thinking, problem solving, relational ministry, and collaborative leadership in a fast-paced, innovative environment is strongly preferred. While the ability to communicate and disciple well is a must, the successful candidate must have a deep love for students, a passion for leading them to faith in Christ, as well as equipping them with the tools they will need to move forward in their faith journey and in building strong relationships with others. Experience in conceiving and producing experiences that will connect students to Christ and to one another is a must.


Formal education is not a predetermining factor for the selection of the new High School Pastor.  However, it is expected that they will hold, at minimum, a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university. Experience working in and using non-traditional church environments to engage students is strongly preferred.


The new YMCA will have nearly 8,000 sq. ft. of space designed to serve students. The Town of Cary is fully supportive of Crosspointe’s efforts to engage High School students. The Student Ministry is in a time of transition, thus the new High School Pastor will have a tremendous opportunity to shape and mold the ministry within the broader vision of the church. With two of the top three High Schools in North Carolina within two miles of the church, the opportunities for lasting impact are significant.
