Chesed Berry


This position at this church, at this time, is something really special. The Student Life Pastor/Director at the Charlottesville campus of The Point Church will come to an existing and healthy team, join a thriving campus, and step into a new season of growth. The Point is making a lasting impact on the city of Charlottesville and at their Louisa campus through a modern expression of worship, Jesus-centered teaching with relevant application, and loving their city in a big way. The leadership team is stable and strong. The resources are available and abundant. Lean in more if you feel like this could be a great match for you.

About This Organization

Since 2009, The Point Church in Charlottesville, Virginia, has been and continues to be a Jesus-driven, people-focused church, with a clear mission to LOVE GOD, LOVE PEOPLE, AND LOVE LIFE. This modern, Bible-centered, non-denominational body of believers is an ARC (Association of Related Churches) church and has been reaching 1300-1500 on a weekend, at two locations.

The Point is known for its generosity and willingness to give both time and resources. They are highly engaged in community outreach and international missions. They’re also known for their high standard of excellence — whatever they do, they are committed to doing it well. The vision is that lost people would say, “I don’t go to church; but if I did, it would be The Point.”

The best way to describe the philosophy of the staff:
• “We do life with one another.”
• “We know what we do matters, and therefore we give it our all.”
• “We spend intentional time with God and in His Word.”
• “We represent Christ in all we do and say. “
