    About Tri-Cities Church 

    In the fall of 2011, a small group of families started meeting in a home in Hapeville with the vision of starting a new church to participate in God’s work of bringing restoration, revitalization and hope to the Tri-Cities area. Tri-Cities Church began having monthly services in May of 2012 and officially launched January 20, 2013 in Hapeville Elementary. Shortly after launching, Tri-Cities Church moved into a 24/7 location in East Point which it later purchased in 2016. In 2022, Tri-Cities Church united with a Spanish-speaking congregation, further creating a church community that reflects the area. Since the beginning, Tri-Cities Church has been committed to being an authentic, generous, intentional, diverse, and grace-filled church family where people can build their faith, belong to family, and be the church to the Tri-Cities community.

     

    The role: The Teaching Pastor will be a Christ-centered leader who is a skilled preacher, passionate about discipleship, and desires to reach the wider Tri-Cities community. This person will be salaried and fulltime.

    Tri-Cities Church is a multi-ethnic community of two congregations and the future pastor must have a vision for maintaining and growing a diverse church.

    • Functioning as the main teaching pastor for the English speaking service, who will plan and prepare sermon series throughout the calendar year and preach between 3x-4x/month.
    • Leading the teaching team who will rotate in on various Sundays, guiding and developing them as communciators and ensuring cohesiveness throughout each series.
    • Ensuring message alignment between the various ministries within Tri-Cities Church including teens, children, and Spanish ministries.
    • Fostering involvement within the greater Tri-Cities community by actively pursuing opportunities for the church to engage in community outreach
    • Actively participating in the life of the church and, at times, serving in youth and family ministries and other service project teams.
    • Participating and presenting in Staff meetings and Leadership Team meetings with the ability to facilitate discussion and drive alignment.
