Student Pastor



We are once again thrilled to partner with Canyon Hills Community Church – this time for a Student Pastor role! The church is bursting at the seams– at some point in the near future they will be launching a second campus, this new Student Pastor will come and join an already robust Student Ministry team, and then eventually launch the Student Ministry at the new campus (likely with 500 to 1000 congregants making the move). It’s an exciting time to be part of this thriving church near Seattle.

Church Description

Canyon Hills Community Church (CHCC) was planted in 1995. With outstanding children’s and student ministries that feature corporate worship on all levels and small-groups for life change, CHCC continues to reach their surrounding community for Christ through the spiritual growth of their body as they strive to become more like Jesus.

The CHCC community has grown to an average of about 3,800 people per weekend and has nearly 200 life groups functioning throughout the week (including 23 in Student Ministry). CHCC exists to make more and better disciples of Jesus Christ through the study of His Word and the transformation of their lives as they strive to become more like Jesus.

CHCC is in a very healthy state with strong, stable leadership and direction. The church offers four engaging and identical services each Sunday morning (and early afternoon) with powerful verse-by-verse expository Bible teaching, excellent modern worship and effective use of media and technology.

The church is poised for a second campus and believing God will provide a location for their second site soon. This search is ultimately for a top-tier Student Pastor who will lead the student ministry on that campus (anticipated to launch with 500-1000 people).

In addition to all student-wide events, this position will work most directly with one of either the middle school or the high school while supporting the other area until the time of the launch of the new campus.
