About Tri-Cities Church 



In the fall of 2011, a small group of families started meeting in a home in Hapeville with the vision of starting a new church to participate in God’s work of bringing restoration, revitalization and hope to the Tri-Cities area. Tri-Cities Church began having monthly services in May of 2012 and officially launched January 20, 2013 in Hapeville Elementary. Shortly after launching, Tri-Cities Church moved into a 24/7 location in East Point which it later purchased in 2016. In 2022, Tri-Cities Church united with a Spanish-speaking congregation, further creating a church community that reflects the area. Since the beginning, Tri-Cities Church has been committed to being an authentic, generous, intentional, diverse, and grace-filled church family where people can build their faith, belong to family, and be the church to the Tri-Cities community.   



The role: The Teaching Pastor will be a Christ-centered leader who is a skilled preacher, passionate about discipleship, and desires to reach the wider Tri-Cities community. This person will be salaried and fulltime.



We are seeking a pastor that will join in shepherding the church community, pursuing the spiritual health and growth of the congregation, instilling a sense of engagement and ownership.  



This pastor will demonstrate strong leadership skills by collaboratively working with the Lead Pastor, Elders, Church Staff, and Ministry Leaders to align mission, vision, and values.
