Job Description

Waters Edge Church has grown from 50 people to a church of thousands because we do church differently. We don’t do what’s expected or, for that matter, what’s accepted. The music is loud. The message is bold. We do whatever it takes to connect people to God. We are a multi-site church and have three campuses in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia (Yorktown, Newport News, and Williamsburg). We are laser-focused on reaching those who are far from God and want to change the way people think about church!

We're currently looking for a new full-time staff member to join our Director Team in the position of Student Director. If you’re a natural born leader with previous management experience and would love to be a part of a dynamic, innovative team shaping the future of a fast growing church, this position might be for you!

This is a central position that oversees multiple staff and hundreds of students across three campuses. This position also has a seat on our Lead Team centrally. It's a great position, and an even better place to live.
