ENCOUNTER Church is seeking an Executive Pastor to manage and direct, in partnership with the Lead Pastor, the implementation of the vision and ministry plan. We are a dynamic and evolving contemporary church that is looking for a strong and compelling leader to oversee strategic planning and goal setting across numerous ministries as we look to grow our reach into Ventura County. As the primary driver of group life, the Executive Pastor will be responsible for creating and championing a clear maturity pathway for those within the church. A successful candidate will also have a heart for creating community engagement and ministering to our growing multicultural city.
Who is ENCOUNTER?
We are a gospel-centered, intergenerational church made up of people who come from all kinds of experiences, stories, and brokenness—but, we have embraced the grace of Jesus Christ in our lives.
Encountering God - We encounter God in a very personal way through our weekend services. When we come together, everything focuses on getting to know Jesus better through His Word and expressing our love for Him through music, prayer, communion, and the arts.
Encouraging Each Other - When we center our attention on our relationship with God, we discover authentic community with each other. We encourage each other through loving actions and using the unique abilities God gives us to serve others.
Engaging The World - As Christ followers, our focus turns outward to a world of people who really need what God offers. So, we intentionally share the love of God with people who have never come into a relationship with Him.
This is a full time, exempt position that includes paid medical benefits for the employee and family. This role reports to the Lead Pastor.
