Job Description:

Southland is a multi-site church in Central Kentucky with campuses in Lexington, Nicholasville, Georgetown, and Danville. At Southland we believe a job on our team is more than just a job—it's a calling. But we're not just looking for people who've only been serving in ministry; we're looking for people who have a desire to follow God’s calling for their life.


Being on staff at Southland is like joining a family. We don’t take ourselves too seriously, so we laugh a lot. But, because our mission is so critical, we challenge each other. Every day we're helping others see who they are in Christ and helping them become who God created them to be. And we're helping each other grow in our faith and in our lives along the way.

We love what we do, whom we do it with, and whom we do it for. This isn't an easy path, and we're stretched by huge goals and a very fast pace. But it's incredibly rewarding.
