Pastoral Position Opportunity

Marriage and Family Pastor

============================== ==========================

How would you like to work surrounded by the snow capped peaks and rugged forests of scenic northern California?

Situated in an outdoor recreation paradise, Pathway Church is an incredible place to make your mark.

We are a grace-based church committed to helping people find and follow God. Our church is a unique movement that holds God’s Word in the highest regard, while pushing forward with new ideas and methods of evangelism and service. Always trusting God for greater impact, we believe he has bigger and greater plans just around the corner for us.

We see one of those bigger plans as God impacting marriages and families through us. We are prayerfully looking for a strong leader to take the lead in this new initiative. We believe a strong home starts with a strong marriage. As a church we value strong marriages. Perhaps your heart and thoughts are consumed with the idea of watching God heal marriages and strengthen homes.

If you want to be on the front line of watching God rebuild marriages and change children’s lives, we want to hear from you.

If your heart and thoughts are burdened with a passion for marriages and families, we want to hear from you.

If you’re the kind of leader who makes things happen and has a bigger gas pedal than brake pedal, we’d be honored to hear from you.

If you have a passion that lost people be saved and that saved people be sanctified, we’d love to hear from you.

Pathway Church is a member of A.W. Tozer’s denomination, the Christian and Missionary Alliance. We are overseen by elders and are staff driven. Pre-covid, about 3,000 people attended on weekends.

We have not slowed down. We have not coasted during this time. We have found wildly creative ways to keep the mission moving forward. It’s time for us to expand our team and to broaden our reach. Can you help us do that?

Our location in Redding, CA is surrounded by three National Forests with three mountain ranges pressed up against us. You can snowboard on Mount Shasta in late spring and water ski on Lake Shasta on the same day. Beauty surrounds us everyday, not to mention we have amazing fishing spots on lakes, rivers, ponds and streams. Within 30 to 40 minutes you can be lost in the tall trees of Northern California for a day hike or spend a weekend camping or hunting with family and friends. Redding is a great place to raise a family with strong schools and a great sense of community.

We are looking for a Pastor who can build a high-impact Marriage Ministry and Family Ministry — one that can serve hundreds of people at various stages of marriage or pre-marriage.

We have some things already in place, but you would design and create a holistic plan to not only minister to marriages and families, but also to reach our community for Christ through groups, programs and events.

How big can you dream?

If you have a proven track record of ministry effectiveness and growth…

If you’re a fairly normal human being and a fun person to work with…

If you long to equip husbands and wives to love each other well, and parents to nurture their children in wholesome ways…

If you’re great at imagining and planning events… and have the horsepower to gather teams to pull them off…

If you’re a forward-thinking leader who likes to run fast while building a movement that sees marriages and families forever changed for Christ…

If you’re theologically solid and biblically informed…

If you’d like to preach once in a while…

… let’s talk.
