The Cross Church

Growth Pastor



Why I Love This Opportunity

The Growth Pastor will have the opportunity in this season to develop and implement a fresh vision and strategy for discipleship and adult education at The Cross! The Cross has seen positive results over the past years, including an 80% group attendance ratio Pre-Covid.

Still, the team at The Cross knows there is an even more significant future of growth and discipleship on the horizon.

About This Organization

As of April of 2022, FBC Wylie officially rebranded itself as The Cross Church! The heart of everything at The Cross is Spreading God’s Fame by Making Disciples of All People so that lives are changed. To accomplish that vision, they GATHER for worship, GROW in groups, GO on mission (here, there, and everywhere), and GIVE to what matters their time, talent & treasure. They are also about removing barriers to help people see Jesus more clearly.

The Cross is located in one of the fastest-growing areas of Collin County, TX. Currently, 11 full-time pastors and ministers serve a weekly average of 1,100 in discipleship groups and over 1,900 in worship services. They are blessed to have recovered 94% of their pre-pandemic in-person worship attendance.

Post-Covid, they have seen greater unity and passion for their vision and mission. They have a healthy staff culture and a congregation that continues to grow more diverse. They are dreaming of becoming a multi-site church in the near future, and they have an exciting phased update of their main facilities in progress.
