Open Positions:

Director of Ministry Operations (FT) Executive Assistant (FT)


Director of Ministry Operations (FT)

 

 

POSITION TITLE: Director of Ministry Operations (FT)
ORGANIZATION: The Perfecting Church

LOCATION: Atco, New Jersey


CHURCH BACKGROUND
Established in 2011, The Perfecting Church (TPC) exists to produce change in the lives of men, women and children through the transforming power of God's word and presence enabling us to discover and live God's unique plans for our lives emerging as holy, purpose-driven, people of influence who extend the Kingdom of God. TPC is a healthy, thriving, multi-generational congregation with a membership of approximately 1,300 people and an average of 700+ men, women and children attending its weekly Sunday gathering. The congregation of TPC also meets throughout the week in its 25+ small discipleship groups known as PCells. It is here that we learn to be 21st century followers of Jesus applying the word of God to our lives in a fast-paced and increasingly polarized world.


TPC has a deeply held core value of not simply gathering as the church, but in seeing its members equipped, organized and released to use their vocations, passions and talents to extend God’s Kingdom into the surrounding region. The Church is known for loving its neighbors through its many community initiatives serving the culturally, ethnically and economically diverse residents of the Greater Philadelphia region under its community engagement arm, Loving Our Cities, a 501c3 community development corporation (CDC).

Those who call TPC home love the emphasis on doing life together and being part of a church mobilized to serve others. We have a focus both locally and globally to see disciples released to extend the Kingdom of God where needs are unmet, people are marginalized and the deepest divisions exist. In its first year of existence TPC began and continues to send teams to the West Bank to work in the midst of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. That work has shaped the relentless and selfless way that TPC loves and serves others both at home and abroad. There are three teams providing overall leadership and direction to The Perfecting Church. The Ministerial Advisor Team (Lead Pastor and Elders) provides strategic direction and implementation oversight of the mission and vision. Our Elders are responsible for spiritual formation and member care including counseling and discipleship. The Legal Board provides operational, fiscal and managerial direction to Perfecting Ministries.
