Hiring: Executive Director/Pastor

Redemption City Church is a church believes that God is calling us to look for an Executive Director/Pastor who is characterized by the following:

Redemption City Church is a church that provides “Hope for the Hungry” in Franklin, TN, that has seen Sunday worship attendance grow from about 90 people to 415 people since it launched in 2013. This growth has created a growing need for comprehensive theological, pastoral, and organizational leadership of ministry staff to ensure the vision is clear and being carried out in all areas of ministry.

The XP is responsible for the health of all Redemption City Church Ministries. This person will work “up” alongside the Lead Pastor to shape the church wide vision, strategy, and goals and will work “down” with all ministry staff to ensure they are carried out. This person will be responsible for all aspects of overseeing ministry staff – from the hiring, firing, and organization of personnel, to day-to-day management, the creation or elimination of ministries and systems, to development of ministry-specific vision and ministry-specific goals and lead measures. Further, the XP will own the Leadership Pipeline of Redemption City Church to raise up and deploy aligned leadership throughout the body. They must combine a theologically-integrated, pastoral vision for ministry with a pragmatic, results-oriented leadership style while possessing an unyielding love for Jesus and the church.
