Job Description:

400+ member, actively growing church in Columbus, MS looking to hire experienced Children's Pastor - full time, 50K salary with excellent benefits package.

Brief history of the church :
Founded in 1980 in Columbus MS. The Senior Pastor is now in the 25th year of his leadership and the church has experienced great progress and expansion. With more than 400 members now, the church built a new facility in 2000 to accommodate an 850-seat worship center, new offices, a new state-of-the-art nursery center, new restrooms, and an expansion of classrooms. The new building was a 3 million dollar endeavor, and the church paid it in full within 3 years. In the late 90's, the Pastor led the church through a transition from a traditional spirit-filled church to a contemporary spirit-filled church. The people responded in strong favor to the transition and the church continued thriving forward. This church has an impeccable reputation in her community, and is known as a church of unity with strong visionary leadership, contemporary ministry, and a church that places the highest priority on family and the next generation. Since the Pastor is approaching retirement in a few years, he and the leadership felt the Lord leading them to invite his son back to Evangel to serve as Lead Pastor with eventual succession in focus. He has been a Lead Pastor for over 10 years, first in San Diego CA and then in planting a contemporary church in the Memphis TN area for the past 6.5 years. Both churches thrived and expanded to do great things in their communities. Jason has earned his Masters in Theology and is married has 3 children.

Previous Experience Deisred (years & church size) 3-5 years in a church of 300 or more.
