Job Description

 

Current - A Christian Church is a rapidly growing church in a thriving suburb of America’s third largest city, Houston, Texas.  We are blessed with faithful and committed Elders, staff and volunteer leaders. We are also blessed with a new addition to accommodate the growth God has blessed us with, but facilities continue to feel squeezed as the growth continues.  

 

Champions- The Vision & Strategy

Only those ready to be the Chief Champion of a streamlined communication process, social media outreach and volunteer strategy need apply.  This is all about communicating clearly and inspiring our church toward further involvement. It’s about reaching out to those who need God in their lives and insuring a quality and highly impactful experience as guests and regulars interface with the church.

We want our vision and strategy and our unique “personality” as a church to ooze from every email, social media post, web page and conversation.  

 

Organizes- To Ensure Success

Along with the other skills and abilities that are required, be sure to pack your organization skills. A big part of this role is the ability to organize what will be promoted, when and how.  Along with the ability to sift out challenges and attack them. In addition, this role will set the tone and build a culture of / volunteering and service. It’s all about attention to details and top notch follow-up, fueled by a deep passion for people.

 

Collaborates- With Staff And Other Leaders

If we implement the strategy and vision correctly, communications and our serving value will connect with and flow through every ministry area of Current.  Be prepared to collaborate with other creative and passionate team members.
