Our Vision: “Living the Journey, Sharing the Story.” Simply explained, that means that we have a passion for living a journey of faith and telling the story of God’s redeeming love.

Fairhaven Church is a growing, multisite church located in Centerville, OH just outside of Dayton with current ties to the Christian and Missionary Alliance. Fairhaven started its journey 50 years ago with twelve families. They met at a local YMCA, united with a vision and dream to reach people in the Dayton area with the Gospel and to equip believers to serve and transform the community. Today, Fairhaven is a vibrant, multisite church of 6,000 people, with a weekly attendance of 3,500. They have three established campuses in Centerville, Northmont, and Springboro.


Fairhaven Church seeks a Production Director who will ultimately assist with the continuation of their campus expansions in 2017 and beyond. This position will ensure the execution of compelling weekend services by overseeing and coordinating the effective use of audio, lighting, and video. This position leads the production staff and volunteers to ensure the overall success of the department, and the church, with the belief that technology is a tool for enhancing experiences of attendees, so they gain a firm understanding of the gospel.


The successful candidate will be an innovative and skilled leader who can troubleshoot technical challenges, manage a complex multisite environment, and prove to be resourceful under pressure. They will be an exceedingly strategic thinker who can plan for needed upgrades, improvements, and expansions.


The ideal candidate will have previous experience leading a technical arts team in a church setting (1,500+) committed to excellence. He or she will be able to lead a team of staff and volunteers to fully operate systems on weekends, and maintain all systematic processes throughout the week. The ideal candidate will be people-oriented and technically proficient. The Production Director will have substantial knowledge and experience in stage management, production, and volunteer/staff management.


To effectively execute the responsibilities this position entails, the prospective candidate will have a college degree or equivalent work/life/ministry experience alongside 3+ years of high-level experience in the fields of live audio, live video, and entertainment lighting. Added multisite exposure and/or significant knowledge in the secular production industry will prove to be a plus.


Fairhaven’s largest campus is located in Centerville, OH, an affluent suburb of nearby Dayton, OH. Family-friendly communities are one of the Midwest's most endearing traits, and even the larger urban areas retain this warmth of a close-knit spirit. In many of the smaller towns and villages like Centerville in particular, strong volunteerism and participation in clubs and organizations creates a genuine family feeling in the community. Newcomers to this picturesque and diverse region will discover a pleasing blend of urban neighborhoods, vibrant suburbs, master-planned golf communities, and friendly small towns. From the natural beauty of its picturesque landscapes to the unparalleled quality of life along with a low cost of living, Greater Dayton is the ideal place to live, play, work, and raise a family.
