Timberlake Church (TC) is a grace-based church that is committed to fulfilling the Great Commission. It consists of a diverse community of people who are passionate about growing in faith and sharing the love of Christ, while authentically connecting with each other. Boasting a rich heritage, Timberlake Church has successfully sustained its 26-year mission of “making more and better disciples of Jesus Christ,” which continues to resonate today.


Founded upon the ministry model of the North Point Network, Timberlake values this legacy, which has impacted its ministries, staffing, and programming components over the years. Their steady progress has been further evidenced through the leadership of Ben Sigman, who has led the congregation as Lead Pastor since 2008, growing the congregation from 600 to nearly 3,000 regular weekend attendees. The past eight years have been marked by significant facility improvements, multi-site expansions, rapidly increasing attendance, a highly diversified body of attendees, as well as a growing and thriving ministry environment. 


The position of High School Pastor is a key position in an influential church. While many churches in the region have declined or ceased to exist—Timberlake has experienced eight years of steady growth. The High School ministry has been one of the stronger ministries at TC, and it is the desire of the leaders to see this momentum continue.


The High School Pastor will be responsible for the coordination, recruitment, development, implementation, promotion, evaluation, and growth of High School Ministry at Timberlake Church, while successfully operating in a results-driven environment. This position will oversee all aspects of High School Ministry, including weekend services, mid-week small groups, camps, retreats, and leadership development of all High School Ministry programs. 


An undergraduate degree is strongly preferred for this position, and the ideal candidate for this position will preferably have a minimum of two years in full-time student ministry experience, in order to successfully execute the responsibilities of the role. They will be highly self-motivated and entrepreneurial spirited with organizational competencies to scale. Alongside an exceptional ability to communicate, the prospective candidate will possess a strong leadership ability with an aptitude for recruitment, development, and shepherding a team of volunteers. They will additionally acquire a thorough understanding of, and show proven experience with, Deep and Wide and Simple Church models.
