Job Description:
Next Generation Pastor: High School

In 2006, a group of people believed in the simple, but profound concept that grace and people really could meet. Having experienced grace, or a lack of it, they were passionate about God and His amazing gift in His Son, Jesus Christ. They wanted to share that passion with others in an environment that was really truly accepting, encouraging, ridiculously in love with God, not judgmental, open to anyone, just as you are now. This group of people, touched by God’s grace and forgiveness, is led by Dr. John Jackson.

Students are extremely important to our church. Teenagers are all over the place these days; both physically and mentally. They want to connect, they ask tough questions, they want answers, and they are looking for fun and lots of it! That’s where you come in. If you have the passion, experience and leadership, send us your resume!
