Associate Pastor

Living Stones Christian Church East Bay

33997 Alvarado Niles Rd, Union City, CA 94587 USA   MAP
Demographic: Suburban
Statement Of Faith:

Come join our growing, multi-ethnic, missional church as we seek to embody and share the beautifully countercultural and life-giving ways of Jesus in our corner of the Bay Area.

We’re seeking an Associate Pastor who’s a gifted gatherer, has a heart for discipleship, and is experienced leading & developing teams. An ideal candidate may have honed these skills in youth or campus ministry.

As a smaller church, we value authenticity and community. Ministering here will mean wearing multiple hats, but also the freedom to make a larger impact. While you will report to the Lead Pastor, we are seeking a pastor who can not only work with, but complement his personality and giftings as well. We believe it takes a diversity of leaders to faithfully lead the Body of Christ and reach out to a community as diverse as the Bay Area.

If you resonate with us and our vision—we’d love for you to apply!
