High School Pastor
Preston Trail Community Church
Preston Trail Community Church is PASSIONATE about seeing unchurched people reached with the Gospel and the community of believers growing in Jesus! The Student Ministry is a catalyst to help reach this vision and we couldn’t be more excited to partner with this growing multi-site Church in their search for a new High School Pastor at their Central campus in Frisco!
Preston Trail Community Church was started 17 years ago by longtime friends Paul Basden and Jim Johnson. Both were native Texans who had attended Baylor University, and felt called back to the city of Frisco, Texas, to serve people who were far from God. At the time, Frisco was a small town of 35,000, and Preston Trail gathered for its first few years in an AMC movie theatre. The early days of Preston Trail focused on children’s ministry and creating a welcoming space where the “appearance of a perfect life” was not a prerequisite for attending church. Today, that same emphasis is just as evident at Preston Trail as it was in the beginning.
Frisco now has a population of nearly 200,000 people and is one of the fastest growing cities in the country. Through its active and intentional involvement in the community, Preston Trail has grown in tandem with the city it serves, hosting 3500+ in weekly worship. In the summer of 2017, Preston Trail launched their first multi-site campus in nearby McKinney, also one of the fastest growing cities in the nation.
