Job Description:
ALC (Abundant Life Church) is a church of approximately 800 in weekly attendance located in Glen Burnie, MD (directly 5-10 miles south of Baltimore City).

Our methodology and ministry philosophies are more in line with an emergent, evangelical, non-denominational church. The weekend Celebrations and teaching styles are not “sanitized”. Video clips from “R” rated movies are routinely utilized. “Sincere acceptance – Prove it!” is a core philosophy and the environment is one of unconditional acceptance and love. ALC utilizes a contemporary worship style and is open to creativity.

The Pastor of Life Mission is an executive level position that forms and creates communities that implement and deploy the mission of ALC in everyday life through groups, teams, and outreach. Currently this is realized through Life Groups, Hospitality Teams, Community Outreach, and Discipleship. In essence, this position will be responsible for the training and equipping of the communities of ALC and the deployment and empowerment of mission.

We are looking for a strong leader that loves being with people. For us, it is extremely important that this person finds value in our current systems rather than initiate immediate and drastic change. While change is wanted (and needed), we are most interested in leading forward with our current teams, and initiating change together. This person must be a collaborator, but able to be assertive enough to lead on the executive team. This person will be working closely with two other executive team members (Lead Pastor and Pastor of Administration/ Creative Arts) to manage and lead the mission of the church forward each week.

Formal Responsibilities include:
Value our team.
Consistently advance the vision and development of life mission at ALC.
Empower leaders and directors to execute the mission of ALC.
As a collaborative member of the Senior Management Team, work to foster loyalty and genuine support with the leadership at ALC.

Direct Reports include:
Children’s Director, Metro Maryland Youth for Christ Representatives, Life Group Section Leaders, Support Groups Director, Community Outreach Director, Global Missions Director, and Hospitality Director.

We encourage each candidate to learn about ALC through our website,, and through our online celebrations at
