Why We Love This Opportunity
Valley Church is a church on mission. Disciples are being made. Hearts are responding to Christ. Leaders are being developed. We’re excited to partner with this great church to find a Lead Production Associate that will lead teams, develop leaders, and help create environments where people connect with God.
Church or Org Description
Valley Church is an influential, mission-centered church in the heart of West Des Moines. Valley Church started in 1990 when three couples began meeting. Quintin Stieff soon became the Church-Planting Pastor. Living out a desire to do good works, build goodwill, and share the good news, the church has grown to 2200+ weekly attendees with a $5.6 million budget. In 2000 the church constructed its current 70,000 sq. ft. facility, and they now host six weekly worship services and countless ministry activities during the week. In addition, in 2013, they opened the Valley Community Center as a gift to the community. They seek to create goodwill in the community through good works and partnerships, reach diverse groups, and ultimately impact as many as possible in the Des Moines area.
The Valley Community Center anchors a 35-acre campus across the street from the church and welcomes more than 150,000 community guests annually. In addition, the church has an unyielding passion for loving their community, as evidenced by the over 8,000 participants in Love You Des Moines Days, a signature series of events demonstrating their deep love for their neighbors.
The Lead Production Associate at Valley Church is a strategic role focused on fostering a vibrant worship culture and developing leaders across the production department. The need is for a leader who views audio, video and lighting through a lens of helping people to engage in worship. Valley Church is a worshiping community in need of a leader who approaches production with pastoral sensitivity, creative ideas, and attention to detail. This is a place that values hard work, creativity, experimentation, and risk-taking.
As Valley Church continues to grow, the Lead Production Associate will need to develop leaders and build teams. The Worship staff consists of the:
