Job Description:
Located in Columbus, Mississippi, Mt Vernon Church is attended by people from all walks of life. We are an exciting, progressive church, alive with the reality that God has a plan and a purpose for every human being and we exist to point people to Him. Above all and through all we want to honor God and lift high the name of Jesus.

Everything about Mt Vernon is intentional, creative and driven toward excellence. Ultimately, we believe that there is more than one way to talk about God. Thinking “outside the box” helps us to ensure we are looking at scripture and contemporary themes from more than one angle. We want people to be able to come to any environment on our campus and leave with the ability to easily articulate what they just learned and experienced.

While the greatest majority of our congregation is made up of young families, we have a strong group of senior adults as well as new babies born nearly every week. Our family is multi-generational, diverse, and constantly encouraging one another to live out our faith at home and in the marketplace.

Our next Lead Pastor will be able to:

- Provide relevant teaching from God’s word that connects with people where they are in a creative, intentional worship environment.
- Influence and lead environments that are built around connecting people to God and fulfilling The Great Commission.
- Lead a full staff in spiritual, interpersonal and creative growth.
- Provide overall vision and direction to a church with an exciting journey ahead.
