Situated in an outdoor recreation paradise, Pathway Church is an incredible place to make your mark. A grace-based church committed to helping people find and follow God, Pathway holds God’s Word in the highest regard, while pushing forward with new ideas and methods of evangelism and service.
Redding is a good place to raise a family and also a great place to retire. There are excellent outdoor opportunities, including three national forests, with awesome lakes, rivers, and streams. In addition, the cost of living is more affordable compared to other parts of California. Plus, the ocean is only 3 hours away directly to the West, and you can make it to San Francisco in just over 3 hours as well.

- Lead, build and grow the Young Adult ministry in the region. Focus on leading young adults to practice corporate and personal evangelism, teach them deeper trust in God and His Word, and equip them for service to our Lord through active roles in our church and in our surrounding community.
- Pioneer a new ministry to Young Adults in the career stage of life. Create a ministry that helps these young adults connect to other Young Adults in community, while emphasizing spiritual growth and evangelism.
- Oversee Student Ministry pastors. Lead the student ministry staff in the establishment and ongoing direction of ministries that effectively reach the church’s demographics, ensuring the operational readiness of the church’s ministry teams, high standards of excellence and the accomplishment of the overall mission
Do you have a proven track record of growing a ministry through leading teams? Are you a strong communicator of God’s Word that can deliver practical teaching that is relevant to the lives of young adults? If God has filled your heart with compassion for today’s young adults, we want to hear from you!
