As the heartbeat of our NextGen programs, you'll be the driving force behind recruiting, equipping, and unleashing leaders to invest in the lives of our kids and youth. Your role extends to modeling integrity, living out Biblical truth, and actively participating in the mission of Legacy Church while living within 5-10 miles of the community of Plano, Texas.
What We're Looking For:
Our ideal candidate is a self-aware self-starter with a passion for administration and organization along with an innate knack for relational leadership. If you're an influential communicator who can think on your feet, solve problems, and inspire action, you're the one we're looking for. Extensive collaboration with our dedicated coordinators, staff, and volunteer teams is crucial as we grow the NextGen programs that support our kids, youth, and families.
Success in this position requires the desire and demonstrated expertise to drive Legacy's strategies forward, as well as a willingness and ability to jump seamlessly between "player" and "coach" roles. Skills in recruiting, equipping, and training leaders are essential. A good sense of humor is a definite plus.
As the NextGen Pastor, you'll be responsible for championing every age group within Legacy Church, inspiring a collective commitment to invest in the next generation. While giving leadership to our overall philosophy of NextGen ministries, you will have a primary focus on children's ministry, and give leadership support and collaborate with our Youth Pastor.

We celebrate and hold ourselves to standards that define Legacy culture, such as: "Pastoring > Presenting," "Being Humble > Being Right," "Presence > Preference," "Clarity = Kindness," and being people who can be full of "Grace w/o Compromise."
We aren't serious people, but we take loving people seriously. We are comfortable with our church family, so we speak casually and with an abundance of warmth. Nothing we do is of our own strength, but we love to share what Jesus is doing through Legacy Church.
