    Position Description

    The Grove Community Christian Church of Baltimore, Ohio is seeking a full-time Student Minister.  We are looking for a person with:


    • A heart that beats for Jesus and an intimate relationship with Him
    • A love for Biblical truth and who enthusiastically and passionately communicates those truths
    • Gifts of leadership, organization, and administration
    • Vision
    • A commitment to excellence
    • A passion for bringing the next generation to the Jesus and His church and then unleashing them to make a difference
    • An understanding of student culture and ability to build a program to penetrate that culture
    • A mindset to be a team player
    • Ability and determination to work through a team of adults
    • Self-confidence and humility


    The Grove is a “restart” church located southeast of Columbus, Ohio between Pickerington and Baltimore.  Over the past 18 months, we have reestablished ourselves with a new focus, mission statement and determination to be a regionally impacting church.  The church is ready for the person who is going to lead the students in our region to and for Jesus.


    A bit of history…


    Midway Christian Church was founded in 1974.  A church family donated 42 acres of land.  In the 1980’s a 12,000 square foot building was erected on the property.  Attendance grew to 175.  By 2002 the church was struggling.  Attendance had dipped to 40.  There were no funds available to hire a pastor or take any steps.  The leaders were at a loss for vision and direction.  They contacted a mega church down in Lancaster (Fairfield Christian) seeking advice.  Over the next year, the determination was made to become the satellite campus of Fairfield Christian.  A 65,000 square foot building addition was added in preparation for church growth and a Christian school.  During the years that followed, the mega church fell on hard times.  In 2012, the determination was made to split the 2 campuses.


    Derek Lauer was contacted in the Fall of 2013 about becoming the pastor at the North Campus (the satellite).  It was determined that he would help lead the separation of the two churches and then lead this church to the future.  He moved to Baltimore in April of 2014.  Attendance was running 165.  Currently, we are running about 225.


    We separated the churches in May, 2015.  We have purchased our land and buildings back, and have set a course for growth both transformational and numerical.  Our new name is The Grove and we are poised to take our next steps.  We have completed over $200,000 in renovations to the building and land, including:  A $95,000 overhaul of the lighting, video and sound systems in the Worship Center (which will seat over 900), repair of the crumbling parking lot and other assorted projects.  We have started a small group ministry (with 10 small groups meeting weekly).  A mission’s focus is beginning to take shape.  We have transitioned our music from a blended style to contemporary.  We have committed to reaching out to 25-45-year-olds with children and students.  We have hired a full-time Children’s Pastor.  It is all coming together.  Eighteen months ago we had 1 baby in the nursery – Last week we had 9!


    The future of The Grove is bright.  We believe God has strategically placed us to reach out to the 32,000 homes in a 10-mile radius that are filled with people who have no connection to Jesus or church affiliation.  We are excited about what is straight ahead – Our hands are to the plow!


    If your interest is peaked…


    It is obvious we are looking for a special person.  If you believe that might be you, we would love to be in contact.  Send a resume to:
