River Valley is a 12 year old church that has never stopped acting like a Church plant. Our founding Pastor is still here, and his original vision of reaching young families and helping connect them to Jesus is what we are still passionate about today. We are poised for growth due to our fantastically friendly culture, our prime campus location right between two growing 5A High Schools, and a campus expansion project of a new 700 seat worship center and renovated children's space, both set to open in Dec 2019. With all God has given us, we are projecting 50% growth in the year 2020, from 800 to 1200 in average attendance. We have a playbook ready to implement this plan. But, we need your help.
We are looking for ministers with a proven track record of fast growth through recruiting and equipping teams for ministry. No maintenance mode here. We believe the most effective way to reach the greatest number of people for Christ is by extending authority and decision-making capabilities to the Pastor overseeing the ministry. In other words, say goodbye to micro-management. Big kingdom wins happen through faithful risk taking.
And while you're loving the challenges of your new ministry, your family will love their new home. You'll be living 30 minutes outside of Austin in the 8th fastest growing county in Texas right in the middle of the Texas Hill Country. Your kids will love the recreational opportunities of a State Park, the beautiful Colorado River and a Lake all right here in town. You'll love the low cost of living and small town feel as you do just as much ministry over breakfast tacos at Maxines Café downtown as you do in the office. We'll help you take care of your family financially with a generous salary package that includes full health and dental benefits for the whole family, moving expenses, a matching retirement account, and personal life insurance.
