Lead Pastor of New Church Experience Location (campus church planting)
Church Experience is a dynamic, 7 year old church based out of Central Florida with rapidly expanding locations in the United States! We are passionate about our vision of being ‘one church with many experiences’. This Lead Pastor (church planting) opportunity involves leading (and preaching most of the time) at a new CE location you start (or relaunch from merger) in a state you prayerfully select! We have five campuses currently in Florida and Pennsylvania with additional campuses in various stages of preparation/consideration. We work extremely hard at ‘helping more people experience a full life in Jesus Christ!’ and have a lot of fun in the process! We have an amazing and growing team that all primarily work from home in their communities! You can learn more about Church Experience at: www.churchexperience.tv
This opportunity consists of selecting a location, building a launch team, and raising funds to launch! Financial funds at the beginning come from a combination of your external fundraising (that we train/coach you through and provide lots of systems/support), the tithes & offerings from your launch team/campus, and our CE financial support. Church Experience contributes financially to help you get off to a bigger start! Some church planters choose to be bi-vocational at the start while others take a little more time to raise funds and start full-time (or rely more on a spouses income at the start, etc…). We have powerful systems, a helpful team, big vision, experience in successfully launching well, and many available tools/resources/team members to help you start faster and we believe, be much stronger by doing it together long term!
Our model is to have a Lead Pastor at each location who leads and preaches around 70%+ of the time (supplemented by Central Campus teaching videos). High flexibility for envisioning unique local groups, local outreach, building your team, etc… are anticipated, but an incredible amount of time and money are saved by combining things you don’t need to replicate since we are “one church” (kids curriculum and background check process, database, website/app, software, graphic design, support for your additional online service, tons of supplies, forms/guidelines, online giving, giving statements, collective 501c3/legal, financial reports/tracking, and countless other details if alternately starting alone). Church Experience is “one church with many experiences”. We are looking for a great leader/communicator who loves building God’s Church within a healthy team context!
