Creekside Community Church
Why We Love This Opportunity
Creekside Community Church is a family of growing disciples pursuing wholeness and influence through intimacy with Jesus Christ. For over 50 years, Creekside has faithfully proclaimed God’s Word, with Jesus at the center. They strive as a church community to be a faithful presence in Gainesville, connecting faith to good work through Jesus Christ and serving the vulnerable both locally and globally.
Creekside is a church devoted to teaching Scripture, on mission together to love God and others, grow in Christ and community, and reach our neighbors and the nations.
About This Organization
Creekside is located on 10 acres and can seat 500+ people in the worship center. The church is located in Gainesville, home to the University of Florida. The church partners with a number of outreach organizations and has long-term global relationships with churches in Hungary and Haiti, while they support other missionaries across the globe.
In God’s grace, Creekside has come to a pivotal moment of transition in its rich history. This spring, they will be commissioning current Associate Pastor, Mike Roop, as the fourth Lead Pastor at Creekside. They have also completed a capital campaign to retire any financial debt and begin capital and technical upgrades to the worship center and overall campus.
Gainesville is a university town, home to the University of Florida. The area has world-class health care and many great cultural experiences. Gainesville is just 1.5 hours away from beaches on both coasts and a couple of hours from world-class theme parks.
The Worship Ministry strives for a contemporary sound, embedded with rich doctrine and truth. A consistent value has been placed on raising up musicians in the church for the purpose of glorifying God in every Sunday gathering.
It is very evident that God is preparing for a new season of growth and depth in the worship services. For the first time in Creekside’s 50-plus-year history, they are looking to hire a full-time worship director to join the staff. This strategic hire is one of the many examples of how God has positioned the pieces to bring about a fresh season of ministry fruitfulness at Creekside.
God has built a solid foundation of disciples at Creekside, and their leadership is prayerfully considering how to build on that foundation. One clear step is to place a higher priority on greater ministry in the Sunday worship gatherings, starting with hiring a worship director.
We are looking for a Worship Director who knows how to build teams, develop people, and partner with church leadership to see God do amazing things at Creekside Community Church.
