About St. John’s

 

St. John’s Denver is one church in two locations (Wash Park and Highlands).  We are currently looking for a Music Director for our Wash Park Campus, who can bring us vibrant, lyrically substantive worship, that teaches us the whole counsel of God, and is all-in when it comes to the mission of making disciples.  Our campus is located right across the street from Wash Park.  Here is a description of Wash Park from Wikipedia:  “Washington Park is a neighborhood and public urban park in Denver, Colorado. The Washington Park located in Denver, Colorado, United States is a blend of historic and contemporary styles of architecture. Its historic buildings, lakes, tennis courts, lawns, large flower gardens, and recreation center provide various experiences for visitors….The park is very popular both as a tourist destination and among Denver locals, with some comparing it to New York City‘s Central Park.[2] Apart from activities like jogging, walking or biking, the park serves as a center for social activities and encourages community involvement. Due to its welcoming appearance and unique characteristics, the Washington Park was designated as one of the “Great Public Spaces in America” by the American Planning Association in the year 2012.”[3]

 

 

Denver is a beautiful city that is sunny, with gorgeous views of the Rocky Mountains.  It has a lot to do in terms of city life as well as being close to the foothills and mountains for biking, walking, skiing, and other outdoor activities.

St. John’s is very connected in the community and allows for its building to be used by organizations and other non-profit organizations. This provides for a lot of relationship opportunities for our staff.

St. John’s is a Church that believes in the authority of Scripture and is very mission minded.  We believe strongly in the supremacy of Jesus Christ as the source of life and forgiveness for all.  We value making disciples in relational environments.  We are blessed to have godly, qualified men who serve as Elders who govern our church.  We are also blessed to have a unified staff that is joyful and gets along well!

If you are interested or know someone that is: please contact Lead Pastor Andrew Farhat at 541-315-1021 or submit a resume to pastor.andrew@sjdenver.org.
