Job Description:



Opendoor Church began as a church plant in 1986 and is now one of the largest growing, nondenominational churches in Eastern North Carolina. From the beginning, Opendoor Church has focused on reaching out to those who do not know God personally and building relationships through Small Groups. Over the years, our methods to reach people have changed and adapted, but our purpose remains connected to the commission given by Jesus to reach people with the life-changing message of Jesus Christ - that they might know God, find freedom, discover purpose, and make a difference.


Opendoor Church exists to lead people to become fully-devoted followers of Jesus Christ who worship Him passionately and unashamedly by helping them know God, find freedom, and fulfill their purpose.
