Why We Love This Opportunity
It is with great excitement we present this next-level Lead Pastor opportunity at South Ridge Church based in Fairmont, West Virginia. Since its beginnings in 2004, South Ridge has been loving on and reaching out to its local community and beyond and they have been blessed with both health and growth throughout that tenure.
Now, as the founding Lead Pastor is being called to a new ministry, South Ridge is presenting this opportunity for the right Lead Pastor to join the team and lead it and the ministry of South Ridge both deeper and wider in Fairmont and beyond.
South Ridge is passionate about “providing people with the opportunity to experience real life, real relationships, and real purpose through a growing relationship with Jesus.”
Church or Org Description
South Ridge Church has enjoyed steady growth since February 6, 2005, and its vision continues today. This vision is to provide people with the opportunity to experience real life, real relationships, and real purpose through a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. It is also the prayer of South Ridge Church that God would use them in the future to begin new local churches in other communities throughout the great state of West Virginia and beyond.
In September 2016, it was announced that South Ridge Church would move forward in faith to become a multisite church, starting a second location in Bridgeport, WV. Following this decision, the church embarked on another faith journey and two-year generosity campaign called “Second City.” They purchased a building in Bridgeport and launched their new location in February 2018. Currently, due to Covid and internal conversations, this facility sits ready to be used as a ministry outpost into the local community.
