B.A. in Pastoral Ministry / Theology or three years experience in a staff position in a local church (references mandatory and they can’t be your Mom - she’s biased).
Why we think you’ll love this:
We’re a different kind of church. A church that really does attempt to create the best possible church experience for people who typically aren't into church. We’re firm believers that you learn more through hands on experience than you could ever learn
from theory, though theory is undeniably better than nothing. What’s being offered in this role is an opportunity to experience, an opportunity to create, an opportunity to fail and try again, and an opportunity to grow. And you’ll do all of that in a small
community of creatives who are committed to one another and to helping people grow in their relationship with Jesus.
In October of 2010 a group of friends decided to start a church for people who don’t like church. We started meeting for weekend services in the cafeteria at Southridge high school in Kennewick. Four years later, we moved to a new location in Richland -
the Uptown Theatre. After an extensive remodel project, we held our first weekend service in October of 2014. When we took over the abandoned theater, we were committed to revitalizing it and making a community resource once again. We currently have an average
weekend attendance of 300+ adults and kids. To find out more about us: www.eastlaketricities.com/about
Here’s what we promise:
Patrick Lencioni wrote about the three signs of a miserable job, with the signs being:
IMMEASURABILITY: Everybody likes to feel like they’re winning. There’s nothing worse than being unaware of where you stand in terms of success at work. “Good work is hard enough already - at least let me know what the scoreboard looks like.” We promise to
craft well defined objectives so that you know when you are “winning” and so that you won’t be blindsided when you’re not living up to expectations.
ANONYMITY: The intimacy of having a small team is a clear benefit in this area, however anonymity can also show up in the area of not having a voice, or not being able to contribute to the conversation about how we proceed. We promise to value your input
and seek it out as a matter of what we consider to be common business principles.
IRRELEVANCY: Reflecting on your drive home over whether or not what you spent your time on today makes any difference whatsoever can be a miserable feeling. We all want to feel like we’re investing our lives into something bigger than ourselves. Because
of the unique nature of church, we get to see a pretty long term (some might say: ‘eternal’) impact on those we serve.
