Pastor of Student Community- Beavercreek, OH

Church Name: Beavercreek Christian Church

Location: Beavercreek, OH

Job Description:

Our goal is to bring someone on we can slowly mentor into this role, creating as seamless of a hand off as we can manage between the current student community pastor and thew new person. The current student community pastor has been here for 6 years and is very ingrained in the culture, especially as a student minister, but God is pushing him out of that world and into a more church wide role.

We are a church of 300-400 people in a suburb of Dayton, Ohio. We have embraced a missional philosophy where we take seriously the idea of making disciples one person at a time. We don’t want to attract people to a show or entice them with a cool program. Instead we want to live like Jesus, helping people (especially teenagers) do the same.

We aren’t looking for a certain kind of person, there is no perfect person for this position. We want someone willing to learn, someone who is coachable, someone with a posture of humility, and someone already seeking Jesus.

Please apply by sending a resume, cover letter telling us the story of who mentored you in Christ, and a picture of your favorite superhero to [email protected]
