Pantano Christian Church - Digital Ministry Pastor

Job description

Pantano Christian Church is poised to embrace a new digital ministry pastor and a new leader will enjoy an opportunity to build and grow a team that reaches the city of Tucson and beyond with the hope that Jesus gives.

For years, leadership at Pantano has known that people often watch online before attending in person and that people like to stay connected when traveling. They worked hard to provide quality services for these reasons but since COVID-19, they have dramatically ramped up their efforts to build community in the digital space.

One of the biggest opportunities for the new digital ministry pastor lies in intentionally reaching non-christians and those not currently seeking a church community. The staff has embraced all the necessary strides to improve digital communication but are also keenly aware there is more to accomplish. They are committed to maximizing every digital tool available for evangelism and community building online.

Church Description

Pantano Christian Church is known in Tucson, and Southern Arizona, as a dynamic, generous, and culture-shaping church. Pantano generously invests in other churches, ministries, nonprofits, and governmental agencies. Committed to leading the way in equipping, mentoring, coaching, and serving other leaders in their city and beyond, Pantano is a healthy church that makes an important impact on their community. Pre-COVID, Pantano had a record number of baptisms (baptism ratio of 13 per 100 average in attendance). With a need to expand and provide space for all the people that were attending, and to relieve the pressure on their parking lot, momentum was strong with a newly completed Student Union building on the East Campus for students and launching another campus through a merger with a church meeting in a local HS. Their campaign slogan was “Room for More!”

Pantano has leveraged this COVID-19 season to increase its quality and effectiveness through digital ministry opportunities and is building a strong foundation of their online ministry that has been actively growing for the past four years.
