Grace Chapel is intentional in attracting non-believers, new believers, and missional believers while equipping one another to be sent out locally, nationally, and globally. Everything they do speaks to this mission. It is a strong and growing evangelical church of 700 in weekly worship. 


The church was founded by Pastor Paul Barnes and began serving the community in 1979. They fulfill their mission through four Missional Expressions: Community, Training, Prayer & Worship, and Compassion & Justice. Senior Pastor Josh Weidmann provides leadership to each ministry of the church, and ensures the effective execution of contemporary worship experiences, far-reaching ministries, impactful small groups, and caring community outreach efforts. Grace Chapel is committed to spiritual transformation through discipleship, coaching, and mentoring. 


Grace Chapel seeks a Youth Pastor who will participate in God's great mission by partnering with parents in developing a High School Ministry that will make disciples of high school students. This person will be expected to develop the growth of students in both numbers and in depth, in a way that reflects the overall vision of Grace Chapel. The successful candidate will shepherd and teach high school students while providing resources to grow in their relationship with God and others. In addition, he will champion student ministry, both inside and beyond the walls of Grace Chapel. He will oversee the Junior High ministry as well, developing a team of leaders to conduct a Christ-centered, vibrant Junior High ministry. The successful candidate will demonstrate an ability to love and relate to a wide diversity of students.
