Associate High School Pastor
Bayside Church

Roseville, California
Church Description *
Bayside Church has a 21-year legacy of faithful ministry and has become one of the largest, most vibrant and equipping churches in the nation. With over 14,000 people gathering every weekend over five campuses (and growing) the momentum, energy and expectation for God to move is palpable.

Bayside has a unique leadership model of four Senior Pastors—Ray Johnston, Curt Harlow, Andrew McCourt (all Teaching Pastors) and leading Christian recording artist, Lincoln Brewster (Worship and Teaching Pastor). All have different perspectives, approaches and gifting, yet are deeply invested and equally influential to maximize the church for today and its future. They operate under the value that Kingdom impact must trump ego and process.

Every campus has both biblically based, live, team-developed teaching and authentic, passionate and exciting musical worship, consistently captivating and thought provoking for the un-churched, de-churched and maturing believer. Energy, excellence and intentionality permeate all ministries; from large church events, to niche ministry and training offerings, to phenomenal student and children’s programming. Extremely sharp clarity of purpose and vision at Bayside creates an amazing alignment of each campus, and provides focus and mobilization within the staff and church body.

The culture of Bayside is highly energetic, fast-paced, risk-taking, extremely collaborative, familial, youth oriented and nimble where change is the rule, not the exception. Adaptability is of high value for leadership and staff. It is not a simple church model and largely holds an egalitarian view of women in leadership. Achievers, activators and maximizers thrive at Bayside if they are also humble and highly collaborative.

Bayside is healthy, thriving and positioned for an exciting future of continued growth, expansion of influence, and innovative ministry within its walls, within the community, and to the nation and world through outreach and nationally reaching Thrive Conferences.
