Why We Love This Opportunity
The lead pastor role at Pantano Christian Church is an opportunity for a seasoned leader to lock arms and hearts in ministry with a dynamic, healthy, culture-shaping church.
Church or Org Description
Pantano is a healthy church that makes an important impact on our community. Pre-COVID, Pantano was reaching the lost with record numbers of baptisms. The staff teams were running cohesively in most areas and we were launching new initiatives. Momentum was strong with a newly completed Student Union building on our East Campus for students and launching another campus through a merger with a church meeting in a local HS. The campaign slogan was “Room for More!”
Pantano has provided online ministry for 4 years and has leveraged this COVID-19 season to increase its quality and effectiveness.
Our mission: Loving people to Jesus, launching passionate people to make our world different.
Our vision: is to be a catalytic force to bring God’s influence to Southern Arizona and strategic places in the world.
Tucson, Arizona is one of the sunniest cities in the US, with 3,800 hours of sunshine a year. Tucson’s average yearly rainfall is about 11 inches. Expect occasional brief but intense thunderstorms in summertime (called Monsoons). Because it’s set in a desert valley, annual snowfall is rare in Tucson, although there’s enough for skiing in the nearby mountains.
Pantano is kingdom-focused with a passion to reach the lost.
