Centre Street Church is characterized by our mission to see people introduced to Jesus and to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. Being an externally focused church matters to us as ministry happens both on campus and in the various regions of our city and world. Our passion is to see our people living “on-mission” for Christ in community with one another and in their communities! Toward this end, we are committed to causing an increasing number of people to experience Biblical Community where they will learn to love God and their neighbors as Jesus commanded us.
CSC is searching for a person who will lead our Adult Ministries team at a senior level as a Divisional Pastor. Adult Ministries are those ministries that serve to advance the vision and mission of CSC into the community through small groups as well as through caring for Centre Street attendees and non-churched people in their communities. Ministries led by this team include Men’s Ministry, Women’s Ministry, Singles Ministry, Recovery Ministries and Community Small Groups. Each of these ministry areas is led by a Community Pastor representing hundreds of volunteer Small Group Leaders and thousands of people combined. It is our desire that these ministry areas will lead the way in terms of health and harvest fruitfulness!
The Divisional Pastor, Adult Ministries will lead alongside the other Divisional Pastors toward the achievement of the CSC Vision. Our current “2020 Vision” is based on 5 Guiding Principles which paint a picture of the kind of church CSC is becoming as we move toward the year 2020. The 5 Guiding Principles are – 1.) Pursue God; 2.) Pursue Relationships; 3.) Pursue a Mission; 4.) Pursue Generosity; and 5.) Pursue Simplicity.
