About the Organization


Blueprint Church is a non-denominational church plant in Nashville, Tennessee. We are changing the world by following the simple Kingdom model that Jesus laid out: Know, Grow, Go. Everything we do points back to the lost coming to know Him, disciples growing to be more like Him, and going into the world to make His name famous.


We are seeing uncommon favor as we prepare to officially begin public Gatherings in September 2018. We are raising over $500,000 to help us launch large—excellent people, systems, facilities, and equipment in place on Day 1 so that we can successfully serve our projected Launch attendance of 800 people. You will be an initial Staff member who champions the vision of the church, helps build our initial Launch Team, and oversees ministry for ages 0-30. This is a unique opportunity to help shape a world-changing church from the ground up. Together we are impacting eternity.



About the Position


The Family Pastor will be a passionate lover of God and people, have a heart specifically for those aged 0-30, and be a proven leader of leaders. The Family Pastor of Blueprint Church will create and implement a unified vision for Preschool, Children’s, Middle School, High School, and Young Adult ministry. He or she will identify and coach exceptional volunteer Directors for each area, and will eventually hire and supervise paid Staff in each department. The Family Pastor will ensure that ministry aimed at 4-14 year olds is given top priority since 85% of people who make a decision for Jesus do so in this age range. This person will have a drive to see children, young adults, and their families grow in their faith.


While the Family Pastor will have the expertise to make all final decisions about curriculum, programming, and administration, they are at their best when leading people. This position requires an inspirational and strategically thinking leader who has previous experience in explosive ministry environments, an understanding of implementing healthy systems, an obvious ability to build relationships, and a history of equipping other leaders. The ideal candidate will have a minimum of a Bachelor’s Degree in a related field as well as 5-10 years of experience in family ministry. Preference will be given to those building ministries from the ground up and/or those flourishing in very large ministry settings. The Family Pastor reports to the Executive Pastor.
