MinisterSearch (www.MinisterSearch.comis partnering with a loving church that will help you flourish as they reach their county, region and the world. This church has a growing and dynamic team with a clear vision for the future, and they are primed and positioned for growth. They want a Student Pastor to become a key player and senior leader there. This is a great opportunity to live your passion to see students connected to the mission of Jesus, to find a place to belong, and to advance a vision that calls people to grow in love and outreach.

This is a contemporary-minded staff and church with a friendly environment. They are committed to teaching the Bible and leading people to truly know Jesus. While they strive to have global impact, they know it begins with deep relational connections within their own community.  A very accepting church, they love their community and have established a great rapport with their neighbors. They are nestled away on a gorgeous piece of property just minutes from the University of Michigan which gives them a huge platform for ministry.

Affectionately referred to as “A2” by the locals, Ann Arbor is a flourishing community. The A2 area is the state’s rare jewel: a smaller, friendly town with big-city sophistication; a world-class educational and high-tech research center nestled in a quintessential college town--a close-knit community of charming neighborhoods with a rich mix of cultures. Described as an urban oasis, the A2 area is also the perfect four-season destination for outdoor enthusiasts. You’ll discover golf courses designed by legendary architects, trails groomed for hiking and cross-country skiing, some of the best canoeing and kayaking in southeastern Michigan along the nationally recognized water trail — the Huron River. In the fall, each football Saturday brings more than 100,000 people to town for tailgating and to fill “The Big House” to watch the University of Michigan Wolverines.

The list of accolades for A2 is quite lengthy. It includes such things as Best Place in the US for K-12 teachers to Live and Work, several of Ann Arbor's high schools ranked in the Top 15 in Michigan, one of the 10 Best College Towns in U.S., and Most Educated City. Education is an absolute priority for this city.
