RESPONSIBLE TO: Pastor of Shepherding Ministries or Director of Missions
PAY STATUS: Full-time, exempt, (salary range commensurate with experience $44,000 – $54,000)
POSITION SUMMARY: This person is a bridge builder, both relationally and programmatically, between Cherry Creek and other diverse communities or ministries in greater Denver. This position is a continuation and completion of the Acts 1:8 vision, with our hope being that they are “Samaritan” in their history and experience, with a focus on ministering in the greater-Denver middle cultures (which we are calling “Samaria”) between our culture (“Jerusalem/Judea”) and the world mission field (“the ends of the earth”).

Acts 1:8: “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

They should identify with diverse components of the inner city (both externally and internally). The person should have sterling character, spiritual vibrancy, an evident love of Jesus, and a special aptitude for ministering to a diverse population.
