Pastor of Communication & Outreach

Do you get excited about planning big events? Does seeing someone experience God for the first time move you? Are you good with a camera and love to capture video and share it on social media? Then we should talk.

BridgeWay Community Church, a growing and active church, needs an outgoing, engaging, innovative, Christ-centered pastor who is excited to reach our community for Jesus. Everyone is bombarded daily by messages and advertisements, but how often does that message prompt them to think about their spiritual journey? What if we could tap into those who are spiritually hungry by speaking their language? This is a huge task and requires a gifted individual that knows how to reach people through all forms of media. The Pastor of Communication and Outreach is responsible for all modes of communication within the church and to our larger geographic vicinity. This includes all social media, announcements, videos, mailers, and website platforms. The pastor will also lead and coordinate 4-6 outreach events per year that engages our community in evangelism.
