How would you like to work surrounded by the snow-capped peaks and rugged forests of scenic northern California?

Situated in an outdoor recreation paradise, Pathway Church is an incredible place to make your mark.

We are a grace-based church_noemailmitted to helping people find and follow God. Our church is a unique movement that holds God's Word in the highest regard, while pushing forward with new ideas and methods of ministry. Always trusting God for greater impact, we believe he has bigger and greater plans just around the corner for us.

We see one of those bigger plans as Him impacting the lives of children and families through our new Children's Pastor. We are prayerfully looking for a strong leader to take the lead in this endeavor. We believe a strong church has a strong partnership with parents in helping their children find and follow God. With that said, evangelism and reaching the next generation with the gospel and raising them up knowing God and His Word is a top priority. Perhaps your heart and thoughts are consumed with the idea of watching God strengthen homes through the next generation of children who know their God.

If you want to be on the front line of watching God change children's lives, we want to hear from you.

If your heart and thoughts are burdened with a passion for the next generation of children growing up in this confusing world, we want to hear from you.

If you're the kind of leader who makes things happen and has a bigger gas pedal than brake pedal, we'd be honored to hear from you.

If you have a passion that lost children and families be saved, and those saved people be sanctified, we'd love to hear from you.

If you have a track record of 3 to 5 years as a Children's Pastor who grew the ministry, while building teams, recruiting volunteers, developing new leaders and launching bigger and better systems, programs and events...we really, really want to talk with you.

Our church is a member of A.W. Tozer's denomination, the Christian and Missionary Alliance. We are overseen by elders and are staff driven. Pre-covid, about 3,000 people attended on weekends.

We have not slowed down. We have not coasted during Covid. We have found ways to keep the mission moving forward. It's time for us to expand our team and to broaden our reach. Can you help us do that?

Our location in Redding, CA is surrounded by three National Forests with three mountain ranges pressed up against us. You can snowboard on Mount Shasta in late spring, and if you are up for it, jump on a boat and wake surf on Lake Shasta on the same day. Beauty surrounds us every day, not to mention we have amazing fishing spots on lakes, rivers, ponds and streams. Within 30 to 40 minutes you can be lost in the tall trees of Northern California for a day hike or spend a weekend camping with your family. Redding is a great place to raise a family with strong schools and a great sense of_noemailmunity.

We are looking for a Pastor who can build a high-impact Children's Ministry -- one that can serve hundreds of families and hundreds upon hundreds of children.

We have some things already in place, but you would design and create a holistic plan to not only minister to children and families, but also to reach our_noemailmunity for Christ through outreach programs and events.

How big can you dream?

If you have a proven track record of ministry effectiveness and growth...

If you're a fairly normal human being and a fun person to work with...

If you long to equip volunteers to serve children in finding and following God...

If you're great at imagining and planning events... and have the horsepower to gather teams to pull them off...

If you're a forward-thinking leader who likes to run fast while building a movement that sees kid's lives and families forever changed for Christ...

If you're theologically solid and biblically informed...

If you'd like to preach once in a while...

... let's talk.

What's in it for you?

Competitive salary
Retirement Plan (4% Church Contribution)
Generous vacation plan
Full health benefits, including dental and vision
Health Reimbursement Arrangement Contribution
Excellent facilities to do Children's and Family Ministry
Financially healthy ministry that can invest in your vision for your ministry
Great team of people that has fun and works hard
