JOB DESCRIPTION

CAMPUS PASTOR



 RESONATE CHURCH 

Title: Campus Pastor Fremont

Reports to: Executive Pastor

Effective Date: May 2022


Resonate Team Culture

As staff of Resonate Church, we are committed to being:

 

  • Family - We believe that we can only be effective in ministering to our body if we are ministering and caring for one another as brothers and sisters in Christ. We are not first co-workers; we are first the family of God.

  • Servants - Our team will adopt the posture of chief servants for our entire church community. Because Christ came in the form of a servant to serve and not to rule, we long to obtain the character of our King and adopt the posture of servant to one another, other teams, and the church at large.

  • Equippers – The chief objective and metric of our team is the development of disciples and leaders in the mission of God. The primary task of our team is cultivating disciples and leaders to the glory of God, regardless of the job function performed.

  • Excellent – Both the people we serve and the work we do will reflect the magnificence of God and our desire to work with all our heart, and with all the urgency as unto the Lord and not to men.

 

These core team identities will dictate how we engage with one another, with the rest of our staff team, and among our wider church body.
