Executive Pastor

Community Grace Church, Warsaw, IN

Executive Pastor

If you are interested in serving as an Executive Pastor to help move a growing church to the next level of effective ministry, then Warsaw Community Grace is a church you need to consider.

Our mission is to glorify God by being Christ-followers who make Christ followers.

Our vision is expressed in three statements: WORSHIP THE KING • MATURE AS FAMILY • ENGAGE THE WORLD

 

The Executive Pastor will partner with the Senior Pastor in overseeing, designing, and multiplying systems to make this mission and vision come to life in our church. 

 

The church is positioned to continue growing, and we believe that hiring the right strategic Executive Pastor is the next crucial step in this process. Besides the Lead Pastor, we also have a full-time Director of Student Ministries, a part-time Pastor of Congregational Care and Counseling, a part-time Director of Children’s Ministries, a part-time Worship Director, and a part-time Resident Mission Consultant. Warsaw is known as the “Orthopedic Capital of the World,” and is a city growing in corporate enterprise, ethnic diversity, and culture. HGTV chose Warsaw/Winona Lake to represent Indiana in their "50 most charming small towns in 50 states!"
