Executive Pastor - Anthem Community Church
Anthem Community Church (ACC), a non-denominational church located in Henderson, NV, is partnering with AGORA Search Group to surface and select an Executive Pastor. Located on the southeast side of Las Vegas, Anthem Community Church is a place where people can meet Jesus, engage in life-giving community, and where everyone is welcome.
Since 2011, ACC has been on mission to Live the Truth of Jesus In Everyday Life and to reach Henderson and Las Vegas with the good news that Jesus saves. The Executive Pastor will serve a crucial operations function in fulfilling this mission!
ACC needs a senior operational executive to help reach their Kingdom objectives with expertise and experience in financial management, team leadership, marketing, human resources, and communications.
The driving mission at Anthem Community Church is to help others live the truth of Jesus in everyday life. They strive to create an environment where people are encouraged to experience the presence of God. Their messages are Bible-based, creative, and offer practical insights to relevant issues. Their music style is an expression of contemporary culture yet is driven by lyrics that reflect their reverence to an awesome and holy God.
At ACC you will discover a warm group of real people dedicated to following their Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. They really are about building a community and whether that's through small groups, affinity groups, volunteering, or just sitting down one-on-one for a discussion over a cup of coffee, their hope is that people feel welcome and wanted.
Living the Truth of Jesus In Everyday Life is a lot easier when you have people around you who are doing the same thing. Jesus commands us to make disciples and ACC believes that discipleship primarily happens in honest and challenging small groups of people doing life together. As such, they place a high premium on Community Groups and offer a wide variety of groups that meet the Three C's: Character, Commitment, and Connection.
They believe in creating a space where people can have authentic encounters with Christ, discover their gifts and use them for God's glory. Their hope is to help people to KNOW GOD, MAKE FRIENDS, and ADD VALUE.
