Legacy Bible Church

Adult Discipleship Pastor



Why I Love This Opportunity

Cory Thurman


This is an amazing opportunity at an incredibly growing church with a healthy staff and a huge community impact. Legacy Bible Church is in need of an Adult Discipleship Pastor who will lead, develop, manage, and mentor the Adult Discipleship staff and volunteers. Legacy is looking for a leader focused on team building, spotting and identifying gifts and talents within the body, and someone with a passion for seeing people grow spiritually.

About This Organization

Legacy Bible Church is a community desiring to live out the Gospel. At the heart of everything they do as a church, they intend to be GOSPEL-CENTERED. This is because it is the Gospel that not only SAVES us, but the more we understand the “good news” and cling to it, it GROWS us and KEEPS us. “The gospel is not the ABCs of Christianity; it is the A through Z of Christianity.” It’s how we live. It makes us recognize two things: first, that we are way more sinful than we like to admit or even imagined, and second, we are infinitely more loved than we ever could have hoped or dreamed. The one gives us great humility, while the other gives us great courage and boldness as we’ve never had before. The more we dwell, ponder, think, and rest in those truths, the more our lives transform. Therefore, the rest of our life begins to change – our ability to forgive, our love for others, our priorities, our schedules, our attitudes, it ALL changes – when we become entirely consumed with the love and grace of God. That is the power of the Gospel (Rom. 1:16-17). And because Legacy believes this Gospel is their only hope, they want to see every member of their family EMBRACE the Gospel, EMBODY the Gospel, ENTRUST the Gospel, and ENGAGE the culture with the Gospel. These aims comprise their discipleship process for the church, as well as their church’s vision. The Gospel is the motivation for all they do!

Legacy Bible Church began in February 2000 as a small group of believers meeting in a home desiring biblical teaching and an authentic community. This group quickly relocated to an aircraft hangar, and by June 2002, the church called its first full-time Lead Pastor. By the Fall of 2003, the church needed more space and began meeting in a local school gym, which remained for almost a decade. After years of steady growth, Legacy began constructing its first permanent facility. In December 2012, the church moved into its new (current) home. Since then, Legacy has continued to grow and now averages 800 people attending worship services weekly.
Because of the steady growth of the surrounding area, Legacy is projected to continue to grow for the next several years. The church is preparing to accommodate this growth by reorganizing its staffing structure to serve the people of Legacy best. There are also plans to expand the current facilities and to plant other churches.
