“Waters Edge Church has grown from 50 people to a church of thousands because we do church differently. We don’t do what’s expected or for that matter what’s accepted. The music is loud. The message is bold. We value kids and love students. We do whatever it takes to connect people to God. We want to change the way you think about church.”

Waters Edge Church (WEC) is a fast growing, contemporary church, with history and current loose ties to the Southern Baptist denomination. It was planted out of the Liberty Baptist church of Hampton, VA where Lead Pastor Stu Hodges served as the Student Pastor. The reputation of Waters Edge in the community is pristine, and the church is well positioned for growth in the coming years. They are known for their focus on reaching the lost and their accessibility to people who do not attend church, for their fun and creative worship services, and for outstanding, practical, relevant bible teaching and commitment to connecting people in groups.

Waters Edge Church seeks a new team member to join the Executive Management Team in the position of Executive Director of Programming & Communications. The ideal candidate will be a natural born leader with previous ministry experience, with a desire to be a part of a dynamic and innovative team. This position will be highly influential in stewarding the purpose and potential of Waters Edge Church, and propelling it into new grounds through the avenues of programming and communication. The Executive Director of Programming and Communications will work hand-in-hand with Lead Pastor Stu Hodges, in mobilizing this endeavor to maximize the evangelistic reach of Waters Edge Church.


The Executive Director of Programming and Communications will be a catalyst for creativity and a communication strategist.

This individual will be a strong leader to his areas of oversight, which includes worship, videography, communication, marketing, social media, and production alongside a significant number of volunteers.

To successfully execute the responsibilities of this position, significant experience surrounding programming and communications related to a church of 1500+ or in a large event driven para-church ministry is required.
