The Local Church is a fast-growing non-denominational church in South Florida that cares for its local community. We exist to connect local people to Jesus and one another and seek to create the perfect place for imperfect people.
Located in Davie, Florida, we are 15 minutes away from Ft. Lauderdale Beach, 5 minutes away from one of the top-10 largest malls in North America, and within a 10-mile radius of our location are almost 1,000,000 people.
We are a multi-generational, multi-cultural, multi-ethnic community that commonly refers to our church as "familia" and are led by Pastor Eric Gamero, who under his leadership we have grown to over 1,400 people on a weekend and was named one of Outreach Magazine's Top 100 Fastest Growing Churches in 2020.
Everything we do is guided by our 5 values, and we're looking for someone to join our team who already lives them out.
As a community of faith, we believe that:
Love Happens Here - God's love for me is why I point others to Him.
Help Happens Here - The way I serve God is the way I serve people.
Hope Happens Here - I can be all God wants me to be no matter who I used to be.
Familia Happens Here - Genuine community and connectedness are what God has created me for.
Faith Happens Here - Giving God all of who I am is the greatest gift I can offer Him.
As the Student Ministry Director of The Local Church you will have the opportunity to join a growing team of people who start and end with Jesus, speak the good in everyone, go the extra mile, plan in pencil, play in our box, learn for the best, fight for family, bring people along, obsess about the details, and celebrate every win.
We are looking for someone who likes South Florida, loves student ministry, knows how to have fun, can collaborate with a team, and has a proven track record of creating irresistible environments and investing in the lives of teenagers.
