    About This Organization

    Prestonwood Baptist Church’s mission statement begins with a desire to Glorify God by introducing Jesus Christ as Lord to as many people as possible, and that is what the heart of this church has been since it was started in 1977. In 1989, Dr. Jack Graham accepted the lead pastor’s call, and he still continues in this role today. Located in Plano, Texas, on 140 acres of land, the church is thriving with 47,000 members across three campuses.

    Therefore, Plano is a short drive from Dallas and is an area known for sports! Cowboys, Rangers, Mavericks, Stars, and FC Dallas. Second to sports is shopping, food, and good BBQ. There is also a strong culture with parents to involve their kids in extracurricular activities, fine arts, sports, academics, and more. Every autumn, Plano hosts the world-famous Hot Air Balloon Festival.

    Position Description

    Prestonwood Church is looking for its next team member to join the staff as the Special Needs Director for the Plano Campus. The best person for this role will be a team player. One who can continue to build on the established foundation at the Plano campus while keeping the ministry cohesive with the vision of the Global Special Needs Director and the North Campus ministry. As a team player, this person will need to be hands-on, demonstrating the expectations for staff and volunteers, not just a director/administer type. Beyond Sunday opportunities, AWANA mid-week, Prom in the spring, and other events like Parents night out are a part of the support Prestonwood provides for the families in the Special Friends ministry.

    The desire for the special needs community to be connected, resourced, and supported is a special calling for the Special Needs Director. This role should advocate not only to the families already attending Prestonwood but also to those families unreached in the community. Being knowledgeable on resources, best practices and nurturing the families through utilizing the resources.
