    Why We Love This Opportunity

    Center Grove Church is located in a growing part of Winston-Salem, NC and is looking for a Student Pastor to lead a ministry into a new season of growth. This is a great opportunity for a student pastor looking to rebuild a ministry alongside an Executive Pastor who is passionate about students. Center Grove is well-resourced, healthy, and ready to support fresh vision and passion for students in greater Winston-Salem.

    About This Organization

    Center Grove Church is over 100 years old. For most of its history it was a small rural congregation. In the 1990’s, the church experienced significant growth and built and moved into a new building. Soon after this, the pastor who had led the growth left the church.

    For several years after this, the church declined in overall health. Finances were failing and attendance was falling. Beset by uncharacteristic conflict, the church had two short term pastors who both left in trying circumstances. The viability of the church was not assured in 2005.

    The current Lead Pastor came in 2006 and began to rebuild the congregation. The church has experienced significant change in its philosophy of ministry, worship style, demographics, facilities, and organizational structure. It has been growing and healthy now for 14 years.

    Center Grove Church is theologically and socially conservative and consciously so. At the same time, the church uses and adopts contemporary methods and makes full use of technology for ministry.
