Southside was founded in 2005 and is a strategic partner of North Point Community Church in Alpharetta, GA. North Point was founded in 1995 with the vision of creating churches that unchurched people love to attend. Our strategy is to create relevant and irresistible environments where people are encouraged and equipped to pursue intimacy with God, community with insiders, and influence with outsiders. Though our methods have evolved over the years, the mission has always been to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. 


The Southside work environment is comprised of a vibrant community of forty staff members at three campuses who are committed to staying focused on being a church unchurched people love to attend. We are men and women just like you who have chosen to live out the purposes of God in our lives by leading people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.


We nurture an outstanding culture with servant leaders and co-workers who love, care, and pray for one another. Our team values excellence, hard work, teamwork, collaboration, fun, and continual improvement. We enjoy a casual work environment with an emphasis on work-life balance, a generous best in class benefits package, competitive salaries, and opportunities for continual leadership development and career progression as well as opportunities to work closely with North Point Community Church.
