Grace Christian Fellowship (GCF) in Cortland, New York is searching for a Growth & Development Pastor to join its team. This role will lead, develop, enhance and champion the organizational health and expansion of GCF – primarily by overseeing Sunday ministries, assimilation, next steps, and connection groups.
The Growth & Development Pastor will serve on GCF’s staff directional team (called the Ministry Leadership Team) providing oversight, development, and execution of GCF’s mission and vision. This vital role will lead GCF’s discipleship & worship pastor, youth pastor, kid min director, and equipping coordinator. As part of overseeing GCF’s Sunday experiences, this position will coordinate details and the staff/volunteers who make Sundays happen. This person will create a holistic “lost-to-leading” culture through effective and fruitful assimilation, mobilization, next steps, and a leadership development pipeline. Ultimately, the Growth & Development Pastor will collaboratively improve and develop the strategic systems and processes that accelerate GCF’s growth and multiplication across Central NY.
The right candidate will be a committed follower of Christ and be in full agreement with GCF’s beliefs, mission, vision, and ministry philosophy. GCF is looking for someone with a humble attitude who is hungry to learn and shows consistent follow-through. The Growth & Development Pastor should show a passion for people who are far from God and a passion to empower others. As well as having a proven track record in effective, fruitful discipleship, this person will be highly organized with clear problem-solving skills and excellent written and oral communication skills.
