New Hope Church

Campus Pastor



Why I Love This Opportunity

New Hope Church is brimming with potential. Located in Houston’s south suburbs in the middle of enormous growth, New Hope is poised to continue its mission to help thousands learn what it means to Know Christ and Make Him Known. It is a non-denominational Christian church that wants to do whatever it takes to reach the community while prioritizing sound doctrine. They are friendly, energetic, focused, and grace-filled.

The Campus Pastor position is a chance for someone with a shepherd’s heart to mobilize thousands without spending time preparing a sermon. Because this is not a primary teaching role (2-4/year), the Campus Pastor is left with time to be relational with the congregation. This role is perfect for a leader who has an ego-less get-it-done mentality, loves to develop leaders, owns the quality of all ministry at a campus, and works well in concert with a broader team and senior leader.

About This Organization

In 1989, Pastor Tim Liston and his family moved to Texas to launch New Hope Church. By the end of the 10th year, the church had grown to 1,000 in attendance. Today, New Hope Church is a thriving church of over 9,000 in attendance (pre-COVID) across four physical and one online campus. Incredibly, in 2020, they finished a campaign to become entirely debt-free, freeing up enormous resources to further the gospel in their community.

Position Description

New Hope is searching for a Campus Pastor as they grow and launch campuses. This position is an incredible opportunity for someone with a shepherd’s heart to engage and mobilize hundreds of people each week toward the gospel without spending time preparing a sermon. The focus of this role is on groups, local outreach, discipleship, leader recruitment/development, and newcomer connection. This is not a primary teaching role (there may be 2-4 opportunities each year), which leaves the Campus Pastor with time to be highly relational with the congregation and volunteers.

The successful Campus Pastor at New Hope loves the opportunity to lead ministry on a large scale: being the first connection point, leading micro-missions to the local community, helping attendees engage with students, kids, and pastoral care, and growing up volunteers and leaders. They need to be ego-less, humble, not in need of the teaching platform, a shepherd, and eager to “get it done”. They must be proven ministry leaders with 5 years of experience leading a growing ministry. Non-denominational, Christian Church, Baptist, or Bible Church backgrounds are the closest match for New Hope’s doctrine. This person must be an outgoing, articulate, trustworthy team builder.
