The Avenue Church strives to empower people to take their next step toward Christ. Over the last 30 years, Pastor David has led the church with the vision to reach people that are far from God. Throughout the years there have been many changes, but their message has remained, “Jesus came to seek and save the lost.”
The church is healthy and vibrant, with a great reputation and influence in the community and surrounding school districts. They are known for their missional living and the excellence they bring to everything they do. Because of The Avenue Church’s impact, they have grown from 125 to 5,000 weekly including their online campus. This growth has prompted the building of over 120,000 sq. ft. in the last ten years. Their vision is to reach 10,000 people in Ellis County.
The Executive Pastor of Experience plays a vital role in fulfilling the creative vision of The Avenue Church. This role will lead the multi-disciplinary team responsible for these expressions and experiences in both physical and digital environments. The ideal candidate will see the big picture, see how the team gets from where they are to where they’re going, and then drill down with them to execute with excellence. They need to be able to help their team tell the stories of The Avenue Church in an inspiring and innovative way. It’s critical that this role understand “the way” of creatives and maintain the appropriate amount of freedom, without forgoing deadlines and accountability. They will need the ability to translate between the creative and the administrative.
The successful candidate will work closely with the creative staff and volunteers to deliver content consistent with the brand, character, and culture at The Avenue Church – whether it is a worship set, a video story, or the launch of a new ministry initiative. They will also work with the Executive Leadership team to conceive and implement strategies that amplify the priorities and passions of The Avenue Church.
