Front Range Christian Church

Student Pastor

Castle Rock,


Why I Love This Opportunity

Ernest Smith


I love this job because it’s in a great church with a heavy emphasis on students and the next-gen. The lead pastor and executive pastor have extensive student experience, and the executive pastor currently leads a middle school boys’ community group. I also love the potential growth of this ministry and the opportunities to lead that this person will be given.

About This Organization

Front Range Church began on February 9th, 2014, after many years of prayer and preparation. Pastor Ernest, his family, and a group of 30+ people moved across the country from South Carolina to launch team meetings and plant a new, life-giving church in Castle Rock, CO.

Front Range has met in various locations over the years and is currently building a new, permanent home to bless the community and see God move in new ways.

Being a former Student Ministry Pastor himself, Pastor Ernest and the entire church place a huge value on the opportunity to serve and reach the students in our community. We’re praying for the right candidate to take our foundation to the next level as we step into a new season as a church.
