Crossroads Church Seeking Executive Pastor


About the Church:

Crossroads Church’s mission is to change the world by making disciples who make disciples.


Crossroads began in 1991, and now has five campuses around the Pittsburgh area. Our vision is to multiply disciples, groups and churches everywhere with a goal of catalyzing new 100 churches with 10,000 disciples by 2025. We are both missional and attractional, demonstrating God’s love through both the good news and good works of Jesus. The church’s theological approach can be described as “empowered evangelical.”

Founding Pastor Steve Cordle is looking for a “chief of staff” to lead the original campus so that he can focus more sharply on vision, weekend teaching and increasing travel to advance our church planting efforts.

About the Location:


Pittsburgh is no longer the “smoky city”. Today it is driven by high-tech, health and education. It perennially ranks high on lists of most-livable cities in America. Known for its professional sports teams, the city also has a thriving arts and culture scene, respected universities and high-quality restaurants. The original campus is located just twenty minutes from downtown Pittsburgh, and yet drive twenty minutes in the other direction and you are in a state park. Abundant retail and shopping areas, highly-rated schools and reasonable home prices make it a great place to raise a family.
