GROUPS AND NEXT STEPS DIRECTOR
Vision of the Position
Calvary Assembly is opening up a position for communications director. We are looking for someone who is passionate about clear and compelling communications and helping people far from God come to know Him. We desire someone who is a big picture thinker – that can dream big dreams – and also can put on paper a clear plan with plenty of time to get projects done. The ideal candidate has the eye of an artist and the mind of a strategist. It’s important to us that our church knows our vision and our values and that is our guiding light for our communications.
About the Company
Calvary Assembly is a growing church that creates a safe place for people to take risks in the faith, develop authentic and meaningful relationships, and discover the future that God intends for them. Our team works really hard and laughs way too much.
About the Role
This role is primarily about investing in and developing our Groups ministry. Our groups are different than your local book club. Our groups are designed to challenge, encourage, and grow every person as they explore faith in Jesus. Our dream is that everyone could be a part of a micro-community where they can participate in meaningful, spiritual conversations that help them wrestle through life’s hard questions and challenges. Too many people are walking through life alone and without the opportunity for meaningful, faith-challenging dialogue. Our goal is to create space for people to have real conversations and to find the right person to lead us forward!
We also hope this candidate can help new and existing people find their path at Calvary Assembly. Walking into a church can be overwhelming and intimidating. We want to create a welcoming environment and help people know what to do to actually become connected, so their faith can actually grow. We aren’t a come-and-watch-us-do-ministry church. Each one of us is part of the Church and each one of us can make a difference in the greater Rochester area. This candidate (maybe you?) will have a heart and a strategy to help us accomplish this.
About the Ideal Applicant
Primarily, we are looking for someone who is spiritually mature, relational, and a galvanizer of people.

Details of the Position

Work schedule would be something like: 4-5 hours on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday. Most hours would be during the daytime, some (planned) meetings would be during evenings or weekends.
Compensation is commensurate with experience.
How This Position Could Grow:
We see huge potential in growing ways for existing, new, and future Calvary attendees to not just get involved with groups, but find a clear pathway to grow their faith.
This can include them being baptized to go public with their faith or attending our exploring membership gathering to know how the church operates in mission.
It could be creating a gathering for new people to meet with our pastors and get connected. Maybe Pizza with the Pastors after church on a Sunday?
How do we help everyone discover what their gifts are – then find ways for them to use them in the church, their homes, and their workplace? How do we make that clear and compelling?
This position could oversee the process from when a new person first enters Calvary Assembly, all the way through seeing them grow and exercise their faith in community, in service, and in their personal relationship with Christ.

WHAT IS CALVARY ASSEMBLY LIKE?
Calvary Assembly is a safe place to find faith, friends, and your future. The church was founded in 1985 as a home church. When our current lead pastor, Pastor Bob, took over 21 years ago, there were 25 people; a small yet passionate community with big dreams. Through God’s faithfulness, our church has grown significantly in our influence in our community. We value serving our community and helping people find freedom in Jesus. We LOVE the people in our community and believe we are just getting started in being able to make an impact for the Gospel in Rochester, NY.
