First Christian Church
Why We Love This Opportunity
First Christian Church in Canton, Ohio, is a vibrant church that exists to serve the city. They are seeking a Campus Pastor for their first campus in the Meyers Lake area. This role is an incredible opportunity for someone to pastor and shepherd people and lead at a high level by focusing on their campus staff and attenders in a highly intentional and highly relational ministry environment.
About This Organization
First Christian Church (FCC) is a healthy, growing, thriving church. They were recently featured as one of the five fastest-growing Christian churches in America by Christian Standard magazine. Their vision is that Jesus is for all people, regardless of background, ethnicity, orientation, economic status, or family dynamic. God loves everyone and has a plan for every life. He calls each of us to experience grace and hope as we become obedient to His Word. That vision has recently led First Christian Church to see dynamic growth. Over the past five years, First Christian Church has seen nearly 700 people accept Jesus and be baptized. We have great clarity of mission and vision and are excited about what God will do in the coming years. FCC has always been a leader in the Restoration Movement and continues to have a strong impact throughout the community and region.
First Christian Church is stepping into a new season, launching a second location and becoming a multisite church. While they have a history of planting successful churches in the area, this particular campus begins a new chapter. The goal of the Campus Pastor of Meyers Lake Campus is to inspire the staff, partners, and attendees of the Meyers Lake campus to be fully engaged in FCC’s mission and strategy.
This position also offers an opportunity for someone who is drawn to community service-based ministry to innovate and help shape what will be an increasingly important part of their outreach to the community. Meyers Lake currently does not have a Christian Church/Church of Christ in the immediate community, and no church of any affiliation with FCC’s ministry “flavor” (worship service and preaching/communication style, disability ministry, etc.), so there is a unique opportunity to fill a gap for the people who call Meyers Lake “home.” The Campus Pastor will carry the mission, vision, values, and strategy of First Christian to this underserved part of the city.
