Campus Pastor – Leawood Campus
The Campus Pastor provides pastoral leadership and oversight to a campus. The Campus Pastor is responsible for promoting the full embodiment of the mission of Christ Community on a campus. Each campus pastor assists the Senior Leadership Team and serves with other Campus Pastors to give leadership and direction to the entirety of Christ Community.
The Campus Pastor will cultivate a relationship of trust, respect, and appreciation with the Senior Leadership Team. When a member of the senior leadership team has a dual role at a campus, the campus pastor will maintain primary responsibility to lead the campus and staff in collaboration with the senior leadership team pastor. The campus pastor and senior leadership team pastor will share the preaching schedule and some pastoral responsibilities as determined through mutual collaboration and virtuous cooperation.
