Executive Pastor (#177612) - Dallas-Fort Worth, TX

 

We have partnered with First Euless, a Southern Baptist Church in the heart of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, TX, to add an Executive Pastor to their excellent staff.

 

About First Euless:

real people. real hope. real life.

At First Euless, we're real people who have found real hope, and are discovering real life as we pursue Jesus.  To us, it's pretty simple: a relationship with Jesus changes everything. We want everyone in the world to hear that, believe it, and join us in a journey to follow Him.  Here's a simple explanation of what you can expect from First Euless.

Real People.  

We're not perfect, and we don't expect you to be. We strive for authenticity and invite you to just relax, be yourself, and experience the hospitality of the people of our church. First Euless is multi-generational and diverse, with a wide variety of people that worship with us every week. We think that everyone will feel at home.

Real Hope.

We believe that the only real hope for the world is Jesus Christ. The world is looking for hope in so many places, but at the end of the day, there is only One who can offer real, life changing, eternal hope. It's the basis of why we come together and what we do as a Church. We celebrate it every week, and we want you to experience it too!  Join us this week, and learn more about what real hope is all about.

Real Life.

Real life is the result of real hope. When you decide to follow Jesus, your life becomes radically different. It doesn't mean you become rich or famous, it means you see life differently and experience a new kind of joy.  That's what you'll see in the people of First Euless—a new perspective on life.  The more we pursue Christ, the more we experience the real life He offers. At First Euless, you'll find many great opportunities to take the next step in your journey and experience that real, full, amazing life that Christ offers.
