Campus Pastor (The Chapel)
Grace Fellowship in Columbus, OH is looking for a Campus Pastor for The Chapel extension/campus. The Chapel is a key part of our mission. In fact, the very purpose of The Chapel is mission. There are many people in our local community who long for a transcendent church experience to inspire rest and reverence as they worship God. The Chapel is committed to reaching lost people with a church experience that connects the transcendence of God to His people.
The Chapel services are reflective, slower-paced, and contemplative, with Biblical teaching delivered by one of Grace’s pastors via our video technology. The style of service is ‘purpose-filled liturgy’ that seeks to encourage rest from the chaotic suburban lifestyle most of us live. The worship is reverent, but vibrant, in an intimate setting for all of those who are seeking God.
The Chapel’s campus is just two miles away from our main Pickerington campus, yet The Chapel reaches people that aren’t necessarily comfortable with a larger attractional megachurch. Our mission is to reach people far from God. Seeing a need in the landscape of people searching for God, The Chapel is our way of launching out Grace’s mission in a new and unique way, continuing our model to meet people where they are.
We’re looking for a recruiter, team builder, and a leader/developer. You’ll need to be self-motivated, great with people, growth oriented, and be able to pull off the ‘moments and vibe’ from the stage. Our new campus pastor will love Jesus, be willing to submit to the truth of the Bible, live with integrity, and strive for Jesus-centered living.
Grace Fellowship is currently 3600-3800 in weekend attendance in nine different worship services across 4 campuses. We have 1,700 adults active in small groups and over 1,800 adults volunteering with the church and our local ministry partners. Our teaching is biblically sound and culturally relevant.
We just recently navigated our first large-scale “Vision Campaign” as a church of multiple campuses (called Let’s Go) last Fall. The goal was to raise $5.2m, and we had $7m committed. We had 1,129 family units commit to Let’s Go (which showed huge buy-in). We experienced great times of church-wide prayer, bible study, and small group times around the future of how God can use us to reach people. This ignited an even greater burden for the non-christians in our community as we committed to pray for/reach two people in our lives with the hope of the Gospel.
Here’s what we’re looking for:
-Passion for a local church focused on reaching a local community
-Strong leadership gifting and passion to lead people through various methods
-A Pastoral heart committed to shepherding the people at their campus
-Significant experience recruiting and building teams of people in either a church or corporate setting
-Desires to develop and equip others to do ministry in their gifting instead of always doing ministry themselves
-Excels in collaboration with multiple ministry leaders at various campuses
-Engaging stage presence
-Significant knowledge of the Bible and how to apply it to people’s lives in various settings
-Self-motivated, highly driven, craves feedback, strong relational ability, team builder
