South Carolina

Why I Love This Opportunity

Ernest Smith


I love this opportunity for the right person because they can join a healthy staff culture and help lead the largest Radius campus. The Centerville campus was launched five years ago and has grown to 1,200 people in a short time. This person will have the chance to help lead the staff, build teams, reach out to the community, and help pastor a great church.

About This Organization

RADIUS Church is a multi-site church with six campuses throughout South Carolina. RADIUS Church exists to glorify God by making disciples, planting churches, and living generously. The name comes from this basic premise that every person has a sphere of influence, or what they would call your RADIUS. RADIUS Church has continued to grow, even throughout the pandemic, planting more churches throughout the midlands of South Carolina. Their 3-year vision is to double the number of disciples, plant more churches, and give away 2x the amount they gave away in the first 18 years.

The church sees almost 3,000 people attending worship every Sunday across its campuses. Even though RADIUS church is a large congregation across many campuses, they place a high value on seeing people and knowing their stories. All the campus staff meet weekly to tell stories of how God is moving in the church and pray over the campuses. RADIUS church has a big vision for reaching people while maintaining a relational and authentic culture.
