Pastor of Life Groups
Woodside Bible Church
Woodside Bible Church meets in fourteen (14) physical campuses, joined by thousands of online worshippers in a body that has gathered since 1955 for one reason... to glorify God by making disciples. That purpose can only be fulfilled when they proclaim to the world that Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Everything they do hinges on this mission as they create a disciple-making movement from Southeast Michigan to the ends of the earth.
Central to that disciple-making movement are small gatherings called Life Groups. As the pandemic isolated congregants in their homes it was Life Group leaders that kept people connected, checked on the elderly, and prayed with the sick. Woodside Bible now seeks a Pastor to lead over 436 missional communities into greater fruitfulness and faithfulness. Reporting to the Sr. Executive Pastor of Campuses, this role will take the lead in the development and implementation of the Life Groups model at Woodside Bible Church.
Over the next five years the Pastor of Life Groups will have opportunity to lead Woodside from a church with groups to a church of groups. In this amazing disciple-making movement, currently supported by an $18.5 million budget, they hope in that time to see 75% of the congregation become involved in Life Groups. The right candidates will long to see missional communities of spiritual families growing as disciples and reaching their neighbors with the gospel.
