Job Description:


Cornerstone Christian Fellowship is a large bible-teaching multisite church with three campuses in Chandler, San Tan Valley, and Scottsdale, AZ. Our mission is to Reach the Phoenix area for Christ and produce fully devoted followers of Christ. Our vision is to "do" church in a way that reflects the community and offers real answers to life, while remaining true to God's Word. In 1995, Pastor Linn Winters and his wife Lisa came to Chandler with two other couples to plant a church with three focus areas: Teach God’s Word in a way that is practicable and relevant, Worship authentically -- in a way that supersedes singing in church and becomes how we live our lives and to be a place where kids would want to come to church. Since 1995, the church has grown into 7000 member and attenders each week. With dozens of ministries focusing on specific needs of both the community and the body of believers at Cornerstone, we continue seeking to follow in the footsteps of Christ.

The Young Professional’s Pastor provides leadership and spiritual shepherding for Cornerstone’s single millennials.  This ministry is currently led by lay leadership who Worship, Grow, and Serve together. The weekly attendance for their Grow meeting runs roughly 75 people.  This community also grows in small groups and serve together on the Second Saturday of each month, special serve events, and mission trips.

This position should lead by example and cultivate a positive spirit throughout the church family.  They should represent Christ and His church well in the community at large.  They should be a team player and follow the biblical model of sacrifice by being willing to put the needs of others in front of their own.  In all of their actions, they should be positive and supportive of the Mission and Core Values of Cornerstone.
