Leadership Profile

HOPEVALE CHURCH is seeking a Campus Pastor for their Bay City campus! We are looking for a campus pastor with a versatile leadership gift to lead and love our Bay City campus. We launched our Bay City campus in January 2018, and over the last 6 years it has grown into a vibrant campus with a gifted team of staff and volunteers all focused on inviting friends and neighbors in Bay City to know and follow Jesus.

The Bay City campus pastor will bring pastoral leadership and shepherding to continue growing our Bay City campus. Key responsibilities include establishing a healthy campus identity consistent with the DNA of Hopevale (one church in multiple locations), embracing and casting a clear vision for why Hopevale is in Bay City, while developing the staff and building servant teams for the Bay City campus.

Our Mission: 

We are a community of grace and truth inviting people to know and follow Jesus. 

Who is HOPEVALE Church?

Hopevale is a non-denominational church inviting people from all backgrounds to know and follow Jesus. As one church in two locations (Saginaw and Bay City), we are a dynamic, relevant, and growing congregation of 2000 in the Great Lakes Bay Region of mid-Michigan. 

Our church family is multigenerational, our worship is contemporary, our outreach is missional, and our ministry is shared by all. In Saginaw Township, we have a 54,000 square foot facility that houses our worship services as well as vibrant kids and adult ministries.  We also operate a nearby 38,000 square foot building for student ministries and church offices. 

For our Bay City Campus, we presently meet in a 600 seat theater at John Glenn High School in Bangor Township with great kids and student ministry spaces. Bay City also has office and ministry space in downtown Bay City. We are grateful for our past, enjoying our present, and excited for our future, believing that God has so much more in store for us. Visit for more information. 

Position Summary

The Bay City campus pastor will have a demonstrated ability to effectively wear multiple leadership hats – pastor (shepherd the community; help them to know and follow Jesus), visionary (cast a compelling vision for Hopevale in Bay City; lead toward that future), and project manager (organizational leadership and management, all aspects of ministry). The campus pastor must be able to function effectively within a matrixed Hopevale leadership structure.
