This Teaching Pastor position provides an opportunity to lead in a senior-level role within a healthy, multiplying church that operates with a robust multi-site system and collaborative team culture. The new Teaching Pastor will be the key leader in giving strategic team leadership, ministry development, and primary live teaching responsibilities at a campus experiencing sustained, robust growth. For the leader who wants to lead a campus into its next season of mission, but not go it alone, in a proven model, and in a community that is preparing for significant population growth, this is a fantastic opportunity to prayerfully consider a progress-oriented leader.

About This Organization

Lifepoint Church launched in 2004 when God brought three founding pastors, Dean Fulks, Shane Tucker, and Troy Palermo to Columbus, Ohio, with a vision to plant a multiplying church on the north side of the city. Since that time, Lifepoint has grown to nearly 4,500 people who meet at 5 campuses in different parts of the city. Lifepoint also has 3,000 people connected regularly in weekly small group communities called Lifegroups. Lifepoint’s commitment to its values and vision has helped them become a multiplying church and leading model in church multiplication throughout the Midwest. Further, it has created a ministry ecosystem where discipleship flourishes and believers can invest their lives into multiplication as a way of life. At Lifepoint, you’ll experience a team-oriented, vision-driven, healthy church.
