Denominations: Non-Denominational

Job Type: Full-Time

Job Description:


Are you the kind of guy who loves figuring out how to make a BIG vision reality?


Does reaching people far from God and leading them toward becoming a sold-out, fully devoted follower of Jesus get you excited?


Are you passionate about bringing the Scriptures to life, about making Jesus famous, and doing whatever it takes for the team to reach people and make heaven crowded?


If so, you may be the guy we are looking for.





Life Church strives to do whatever it takes to reach more people far from God throughout the Great Lakes Bay Region.  No Reserves, No Retreats, No Regrets.





If you get excited about seeing lost people become found people, enjoy very modern (and loud) worship music, are cool with giant indoor inflatables for the kids, and can roll with solid messages taught with intentional laughter, then we may be the right fit for you.



We're looking for a candidate who is flexible enough to step into a new, fast-moving church that is aggressive about the Great Commission.

We are looking for someone who can quickly understand the heart, vision, goals and desires of our Lead Pastor.



This role requires:

  • experience leading student ministries
  • speaking 8 Sundays per year
  • Whatever-It-Takes attitude


As part of the staff team, this person will serve in a highly-visible role on Sundays, rotating between our Saginaw and Midland Campuses.





Completely on-board with our Core Beliefs (they can be found online at and a complimentarian in theology


- Star Wars > all other movies


Passionate about making Jesus famous with a whatever-it-takes, pragmatic 1 Corinthians 9 approach to ministry


- Confident in their beliefs without being full of themselves/entitlement


- No time for gossip or church-insider politics


- A good listener, maintaining a posture of humility/teachability, and solution-oriented

- Star Wars  >  everything else


- Someone who embraces change and is not phased by much


- Experience or able to learn with Fellowship One and Planning Center Online

- Fan of the movie Tommy Boy (preferred, but not required)


Ready to hit the ground running on with a portfolio including: helping us launch an intentional + bold mid-week Student Ministry, pouring into volunteer leaders, delivering 8 Sunday Mainstage messages per year, Volunteer Scheduling, and occasional Weddings and Funerals.



This person will report to our lead pastor and serve on our Directional Leadership Team.



This isn't about "getting a job."  Life Church Michigan is a labor of love.  This is about doing life together and joining in with what God is doing in the Great Lakes Bay Region of Michigan.





Life Church Michigan is one of the fastest-growing churches in Michigan. It launched in 2013 with zero people and in three short years broke 600 in weekend attendance.


We are serious about our faith but not serious about ourselves. We believe that faith is a journey, not a guilt trip.


While intentionally multigenerational and multicultural, our key target demo is a twenty-something irreligious male who enjoys Coldplay concerts and Comedy Central.



Our staff team is made up of Millennials and Gen Xers who love each other, value honesty/loyalty/honor, and who do life together.  This is not a "job," this is our passion and life's work for God's Kingdom!



ALSO: someone gave us a free building, so in March of 2017, we will be launching a second satellite campus in Midland 35 minutes away from our first campus in Kochville Township (Saginaw).

Joining our staff means this person should either have experience in multi-site or show that they are an extremely self-motivated reader and learner in leveraging multi-site tools and systems.  Central Operations and Student Ministries will remain at the Saginaw Campus for the first year.

BONUS if you lead worship (a great skill to have in your back pocket).
