Please read on!!!

Christian Life Center is seeking a Family Pastor who will make disciples of children, youth, and their parents. The right person will create an environment where preschool through high school aged students can learn about the amazing life of Jesus Christ and His Gospel and live out lives of faith in Him. The Family Pastor will pour into and equip parents to lead their children Biblically.

Who We Are

Christian Life Center (CLC) is an Assemblies of God church located in beautiful Paso Robles, California. Paso Robles is nestled in the central coast county of San Luis Obispo. 

There are many great schools serving our county, from preschool on up to Cuesta College and Cal Poly University. Paso Robles is a small town that has had recent growth, while maintaining a small-town charm. We have approximately 6,000 students and their families in our city that need Jesus. Our church is becoming a multi-generational church with a number of new families with children in attendance. Life groups and prayer are a vital part of our church community. We have been called to missional living, to living out the command of loving God and loving others. 

Historically, CLC has had a large youth group through which many community youth have been discipled. At this present time, we do not have an active youth group. We have a giant heart for missions and a strong history of engaging missions both at home and abroad. We have seen many of our youth follow their heart and calling into missions. At Christian Life Center, we believe that the Cross of Jesus Christ changes everything! We are committed to equipping our youth and families to live out the Gospel in our community and the world.

What CLC needs is a Family Pastor with a heart for ministering to children, youth, and families who will run with the opportunity to grow a new vibrant ministry within our community. 


Cast vision, coordinate, and carry out regular weekly children’s ministry and youth ministry at Christian Life Center.
Minister to children, youth, and families in the surrounding community throughout the week, including visiting local schools and participating in Christian clubs at schools in the area.
