CROSSPOINT COMMUNITY CHURCH:
Crosspoint Community Church is a vibrant, fast-growing, contemporary C&MA church located about halfway between Milwaukee and Madison. Driven by a passion for outreach, we strive to restore, develop, and release people to collectively participate in God’s
mission. Our community averages around 1500 people each weekend with roughly 150 junior and senior high students and 250 children. We are continually growing and welcoming new people. For more information, please visit our website (www.crosspointwi.com).
The Pastor of Family Life will be the primary vision-caster, developer, and overseer for all of Family Life Ministries (Crosspoint Kidz 0 – 5th grade, Junior High, and Crosspoint Students high school age) here at Crosspoint. While this individual
will oversee all ministries from birth through high school, their primary focus will be Crosspoint Students, our senior high students. This is an equipping and teaching position focused on reaching and investing in children of all ages and their families
so they become fully developed disciples of Christ. We want our families to be able to discern what God is doing and how to join Him in the work He is already doing. The Pastor of Family Life will supervise the Pastor of Junior High and Director of Children’s
Ministries along with their teams while functioning as the point person in other collaborative efforts with the larger ministry staff. Continuously recruiting and developing incredible volunteers to build a great team is a must. Competency in leadership,
team building, and strong relational skills are also needed. As a member of our pastoral team, this individual will also preach, teach, and fulfill other pastoral responsibilities. We are looking for a young, aggressive “A” player who is ready to live in
Wisconsin, work hard, grow as a leader and life-changer in this important role on our staff and make a tremendous difference for Jesus Christ in the Lake County Area!
