Job Description:
Providence Church is a growing church in the suburban area of Frisco, Texas (20 minutes north of Dallas). Our mission “to glorify God through lives changed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ” fuels our philosophy of ministry. Therefore, everything we do, every ministry we engage in, and every program we promote must align with our great desire to glorify God by seeing the Gospel change individual lives.
