Grace Fellowship
South Campus Launch Campus Pastor

Grace Fellowship in Columbus, OH is looking for an experienced Campus Pastor for our brand new “South” campus that will be launching in Fall 2019. There will be well over 100,000 people living within a ten-mile radius of this new campus. We’re looking for a recruiter, team builder, and a leader/developer.  You’ll need to be self-motivated, great with people, and growth oriented. 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.


We’re looking for a pioneer, and entrepreneur, and a ‘church planting type’ leader. You need to love to build things from the ground up. You’ll need to exude excitement and recruit a team around you to start a new portable campus from the ground up.


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
