Why I Love This Opportunity

Phil Bowdle

Vice President of Marketing

Sevier Heights is looking for an experienced and capable choir-based Worship Minister to work alongside the Executive Pastor of Worship to help create an environment that will shape the way a city views the church.

This is a dream opportunity at a healthy church in a beautiful area of Tennessee.

About This Organization

Sevier Heights has been in the Knoxville community since the 1930s and in its current location since 1999. Tim Miller stepped into the lead pastor role only four years ago, serving in various roles at Sevier Heights for more than 20 years. Since Tim Miller has been the lead pastor, he has brought two campuses under one roof, clarified a new vision and mission of the church, and navigated a difficult global pandemic while retaining staff and debt-free financial independence. Sevier Heights is boldly entering a new season with a clear understanding of who they are and what they seek to accomplish. The mission and vision is crystal clear, and the words and phrases on the church walls are also in the people’s hearts. Like all organizations, the pandemic caused changes in staffing, structure, and strategy, but growth in baptisms, giving, attendance, and first-time guests continue to be strong.
