Cumberland Community Church, Atlanta, GA

General Description
The Executive Pastor of Cumberland Community Church (CCC) is responsible for overseeing the accomplishment of the church’s mission and vision while leading the staff in the attainment of its departmental and corporate goals.

The Executive Pastor will report to the Lead Pastor and superintend the areas of administration, business and finance, human resource compliance, strategic planning, communication, leadership development, facilities, the assimilation and belonging process of members and overall ministry operations.

The Executive Pastor will be responsible for professionalism and excellence at CCC for the sake of people both inside and outside our walls.

The Executive Pastor will implement details while attaching them to loftier concepts like grace, eternity and EPIC Gospel initiatives.

Essential Job Functions

1. Support the Lead Pastor in the accomplishment of the church’s mission and vision through ministry effectiveness, evaluation, discernment, decision-making, trouble-shooting, and strategic planning.

2. Conduct weekly staff meetings and lead the CCC staff in the establishment and ongoing functioning of ministries that effectively accomplish the overall mission and vision of the church in a manner that is fiscally responsible.

3. Facilitate annual evaluations of ministry effectiveness with the Lead Pastor at elder and staff retreats. This includes a review of the church’s mission, vision, core values, programs and procedures. Retreats will also focus on the development of key objectives, tactics, and goals.

4. Develop and effectively communicate financial reports and economic trends to the elders monthly, to the staff quarterly, and to the church as needed. This includes ensuring that the church meets its critical financial objectives such as established cash reserve levels.

5. Determine when staff positions need to be added, altered, or dismissed. This also includes developing job descriptions and compensation packages for all non-pastoral staff positions. Oversight will involve the actual interviewing, hiring, reviewing, and terminating of all non-pastoral staff based on the church’s governance matrix.

6. Help the staff to create annual operating budgets for their departments while also providing personal accountability, regular budget updates, and the communication of future trends in giving and spending.

7. Lead the church’s building or renovation programs, which may include fundraising ideas and implementation, banking correspondence, master planning, design and architecture, contractor selection, and construction.

Education, Experience, and Qualities

1. This position requires several years of experience as a senior leader in a corporate business environment, and/or several years experience as an Executive Pastor in a thriving church. This person must articulate a desire and calling for the position.

2. Possession of a Bachelor’s degree is required. An undergraduate or graduate Biblical studies degree is preferred but not required.

3. This individual must have a proven track record of discernment, servant-hearted leadership, humility, wisdom, and personal integrity. If married, this person must have a healthy marriage and family based on the qualities of a pastor/elder found in I Timothy 3:1-7.

4. This individual must be content not being the senior leader of the church. The Executive Pastor must love second place. This person is not a successor to the Lead pastor, but gladly submits to the vision and leadership of the Lead Pastor. Because this person will report to and work closely with the Lead Pastor, it is necessary that a good working and relational chemistry develop between the two of them.

5. In addition to possessing sound business acumen, this person must have a genuine shepherd’s heart and experience in ministering effectively across all gender, age, race, and social demographics.

6. This person should be knowledgeable and able to function in the latest modes of technology. This individual should also possess excellent communication skills and the ability to confront people lovingly, wisely, and humbly. Due to exposure to sensitive information, the Executive Pastor must not be given to gossip.

7. This person must have the proven capacity to manage individuals and teams successfully while operating effectively in the spiritual gifts of administration and leadership. The Executive Pastor must be given to strategic planning and strategic foresight so as to help lead the church to its productive and relevant future.

8. This individual must have a sound, personal financial portfolio that is marked by consistent giving to the Church, and without fail, this person should have a vibrant, established, and growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
