    Why We Love This Opportunity

    Vineyard Columbus is a welcoming and diverse Jesus-centered, Biblically-based, Spirit-empowered multi-site church in the heart of Columbus, Ohio, which exists to develop communities of disciples who experience God, love one another, and partner with Christ to heal the world. They are a church with five campuses with an average weekend attendance of 7,000 {pre-Covid}. Justice and mercy are at the forefront of everything they do.

    About This Organization

    Vineyard Columbus’ five campuses are located in the heart of Columbus, Ohio. They are a church with an unwavering commitment to reach and equip the next generation. Building multiethnic and multicultural communities that model Christlike unity is at the core of everything they do. Their mission is to develop communities of disciples who experience God, love one another, and partner with Christ to heal the world. Prior to Covid, Vineyard Columbus had 7,000 people attending church each week; current in person attendance is averaging just over 3,000.

    Each Vineyard Columbus campus is home to a community empowered by the Holy Spirit; a place where people can grow in their faith and experience God through contemporary worship music and relevant Jesus-centered messages. Striving to be their city’s best friend, aside from regular weekend services, their Cooper Road Campus is also home to the Vineyard Community Center which offers a plethora of free services to people in need.

    With fresh vision and new leadership at the helm, the future is bright for Vineyard Columbus as the area continues to grow and unchurched families flock to this thriving community. The need for Jesus is great and the potential impact is exciting and limitless!

    Position Description

    The NextGen Pastor position is a new role for Vineyard Columbus because they believe that the next generation is a crucial part of a healthy church and that a strong and aligned family ministry is pivotal to their church’s future growth and effectiveness. They don’t just want to entertain kids; they want them to become disciples who can engage deeply with the scriptures, make sacrifices to follow Jesus, and be empowered by the Holy Spirit to be a part of bringing the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven. Therefore, the NextGen Pastor will be given a high-level of influence, authority, and resources to create dynamic ministries for families and to provide strategic vision, leadership, and direction for the pastors aligned under NextGen Ministry (Kids, Students and VC Twenty.) The first priority and greatest need for the new NextGen Pastor will be to help the VC Student Ministry team navigate and thrive through a rebuilding phase.

    This role is a perfect fit for a visionary leader who is grounded in scripture and passionate about outreach. Cultural intelligence and an active commitment to Kingdom-oriented diversity, equity and inclusion are an absolute must.
