Grace Baptist Church

Family Life Pastor



Why I Love This Opportunity

Eric Voris


I love the Family Life Pastor role at Grace Baptist because it is an opportunity for a leader with a true shepherd’s heart to focus primarily on Pastoring and caring for families within the church. If you believe that strong families are the foundation of a strong church and want to be a part of affecting change in that area, then this is the perfect role for you!

About This Organization

Grace Baptist has a beautiful campus in the fastest-growing area for families in both Columbus and Akron, OH. They are a well-established and healthy church with a desire to effectively reach the growing younger demographic in their area.

Along with this growth has come an influx of young families and a desire to see even more in the future. The Family Life Pastor will have the opportunity to shepherd this specific demographic and impact the church’s future. The right leader with high shepherding and discipleship gifts will thrive as Grace Baptist moves into the future and reaches its growing community.
