Bi-Vocational Executive Pastor

Cornerstone Church’s mission is to Build Lives for Christ by Reaching, Connecting, Growing and Serving people. We have grown consistently over the past 3 years and have launched many exciting new ministries including a fully accredited seminary and church revitalization program. The ideal candidate will be someone who has been or is currently in a ministry setting. They will need to be a motivated self-starter, a life-long learner, a strategic thinker, and have a deep love for Jesus, the church and the lost.

Role Summary:

The role of an effective executive pastor is threefold: serve Jesus, serve the church, serve the lead pastor. The Executive Pastor is not a successor or a Lead-Pastor-in-training. He loves second place and is content to lead primarily from behind the scenes. This plays out in many ways:

He helps manage the time and energies of key team leaders. He is a pastor who shepherds people through the Cornerstone discipleship process.
  • The executive pastor will manage the various technologic aspects of the ministry.
  • The executive pastor coordinates the use and care of the church’s facilities so that we maximize our existing resources and lay a foundation for future growth. He is a problem-solver who brings solutions to the other leaders from a biblical perspective. 
  • The executive pastor will assist in pulpit responsibilities including research and preaching responsibilities at the direction of the Lead Pastor.
