Campus Pastor

Grace Fellowship in Columbus, OH is looking for an experienced Campus Pastor.

Approximately 110,000 people within an 8-minute drive. This campus has its own facility, located just five miles from the main Ohio State University Campus. The new Campus Pastor will create a strategy to build momentum, remain multigenerational, and reach students at OSU. We fully expect this campus to double in size in the next few years.


This campus makes up part of Grace Fellowship, which collectively reaches 3800-4000 in weekend attendance in nine different worship services across 4 campuses. We have 1,900 adults active in small groups and over 1,800 adults volunteering with the church and our local ministry partners. Our teaching is biblically sound and culturally relevant.


As a church, we just recently navigated our first large-scale “Vision Campaign” as a church of multiple campuses (called Let’s Go) last Fall. The goal was to raise $5.2m, and we had $7m committed. We had 1,129 family units commit to Let’s Go (which showed huge buy-in). We experienced great times of church-wide prayer, bible study, and small group times around the future of how God can use us to reach people. This ignited an even greater burden for the non-Christians in our community as we committed to pray for/reach two people in our lives with the hope of the Gospel.


Columbus, Ohio, is the 15th largest city in the United States. The region has a population of 2 million and is the second fastest growing metropolitan area in the Midwest. Port Columbus International Airport has 31 destination airports with more than 120 daily flights. Columbus is within 500 miles of 45 percent of our nation’s population.


Columbus is very family oriented with excellent schools, sports programs, and friendly people. And of course, we are home to the greatest football team on the planet, The Ohio State Buckeyes.
