About LifePoint:

LifePoint is a fast-growing, non-denominational church, having nearly doubled in weekly attendance over the past five years. As a church plant founded in September 2007, LifePoint has grown to approximately 400 in weekly attendance (600 at Christmas Eve 2018). 80% of people who have been at the church for more than 6 months are involved in some sort of volunteer service (on campus, off campus, mercy, mission, etc.). LifePoint is a church full of engaged and passionate followers of Jesus! With a mission to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ, LifePoint's theological position is to glorify God through the fulfillment of the Great Commission (Matt. 28:19-20) in the spirit of the Great Commandment (Matt. 22:37-39). God is glorified as new disciples of Jesus Christ are made, and as these disciples grow in love for God and neighbor.

(Extensive ministry experience, in some cases, can be substituted.)
