Job Description:

Job Title: Director of Operations

Location: Boise, Idaho

Job Category: Administrative

Job Type: Full Time


Job Overview: 

The Director of Operations will report to and work alongside the Lead Pastor of City Church Boise to build and manage, systems, structures, and teams to implement the vision and values of the Church. This role will include overseeing and directing facilities, finances, selected staff, volunteer leaders, and teams. This is a non-pastoral, administrative role focused on the day-to-day operations of the church. The hiring of this individual will enable the Lead Pastor and Elders to focus on the spiritual development and overall vision of the church through operational excellence.



City Church is located in the heart of Boise’s downtown neighborhood and is committed to living loved by God, together in community, on mission with Jesus in our city. We believe the Bible is God’s Word, that God is sovereign in our salvation and over all the details of life, and that Jesus is our King who inaugurated a Kingdom that has come, is coming, and will one day fill the earth. Thus, while theologically conservative, we are socially engaged as we seek to announce and embody the King and His Kingdom through our words, actions, and shared life together.

As a growing community, we are in need of an operational leader who can coordinate and facilitate the day-to-day running of the church. This individual will be the first full-time staff person, outside of the Lead Pastor, and must be a self-starter, problem solver, and proven manager of systems and people.


The Director of Operations will lead selected initiatives and events as delegated by the lead pastor with a specific focus in several key areas including: Facilities, Finances, Ministry Staff, and Leading Volunteers.

Ministry Staff

• Hiring and management of part-time, selected staff including: facilities manager, communications director, worship leader, and children’s ministry coordinator.

Leading Volunteers

A degree in a business related field is desired. This person needs to be aligned with our doctrinal statement as well as our vision and values.
