Database & Communication Admin Assistant for Groups & Family

First Christian Church is an imperfect group of people who have plenty of differences—and we love it that way. We’re seekers and followers who have all come to the same realization: God is for everyone, so we are too. Together we seek to follow Jesus and tell the whole world about His love for them.

We say we’re for everyone, and we mean it.

Because of that, we do a lot of different things in different ways. We need a Database & Communications Administrative Assistant for Groups & Family Teams to make sure we are leveraging our database to know who people are and where they are and aren’t connected so that our Groups & Family staff and other ministries can most effectively pastor our congregation and guests and so that our Groups and Family staff stay in communication with people in those ministries.
