Grow Pastor



Why We Love This Opportunity *
For anyone dreaming of applying their gifts and passions in a context where it’s all about people over programs, Rivertree’s Grow Pastor opening is the position of a lifetime. Not only is Huntsville, AL, one of the fastest growing, most desirable cities in the region, Rivertree Church has been growing like crazy and they have a new Downtown Campus opening up in early 2020.

This team knows who they are and who they want to be, and they are striving together to create and continue a culture where they trust God together for certain results while they prioritize people and personal growth. The Grow Pastor will be blessed to lead the second of Rivertree’s three part ministry strategy of “Gather, Grow & Go”, not only focused on all the environments of discipleship and growth but also leading the Children’s, Youth, Pastoral Care & Spiritual Foundations staff and teams.

Church or Org Description *
Rivertree Church is nested in the beautiful Owens Cross Roads suburb of Huntsville, AL. Rivertree Church began life 20 years ago and, especially over the last decade, has been blessed to be a church that is growing and deepening and truly striving to make relationships the main thing. The Grow Pastor will join a team who loves church and loves one another and will truly be cared for while at the same time experiencing a season of immense opportunity.

Rivertree Church currently has an average of over 1,000 people worshipping together weekly in Owens Cross Roads and they have just officially adopted another church located in downtown Huntsville which will soon become the Downtown Campus of Rivertree Church. This multi-site opportunity was not one they sought out and was one they processed cautiously. This opportunity, located in the heart of the thriving downtown medical district of Huntsville, will be one with limitless potential. It is truly an exciting time at this church!
