Hey David … We have grown from 300 to 2,000 in less than 5 years. Our original Executive Pastor job description was for a smaller church. What do you have as examples of Executive Pastor Job descriptions. What services do you have available for coaching an XP?

DRF—Everyone wants your problem! It’s wonderful. Massive growth is an enormous challenge. You have blown through the culture levels of 600 and 1,200 attenders. Here is a ministry description for an XP of a church of 3,500. When you get to that size, the role description tends to be broad. Specifics go into annual strategic goals and tactical plans, which are highly specific and change from year to year. Other job descriptions can be found here.

I would be pleased to talk about personalized coaching. My style is to do 6 and 12 month engagements. There are specific things that the Senior Pastor, Executive Pastor and Elders need to do … and they radically change when attendance goes from 300 to 2,000 to 3,500.
