Fellowship Denver Church began 13 years ago in the hearts of four friends and was planted in Central Denver. Since that time, the church has seen steady growth with a congregation now of around 1,000 people. Fellowship Denver is a thriving, healthy church motivated by its mission to help people discover the original Jesus. This mission statement drives the church to exemplify its commitment to the historic faith and authority of the Bible while also working to include and disciple those who have no faith background or who are culturally distant from evangelical Christianity.
The church’s leadership is aligned around seeing a gospel movement that fills Denver with disciples of Jesus. They are passionate about equipping members to live out their faith in public, developing leaders, supporting church planting, and being a resource to other gospel work in the city. With this in mind, the church is embarking on a new season of multiplication, which will include: multiplying Fellowship Groups throughout its expanding geographic footprint, planting a second congregation in the North Metro area, and starting new ministries to develop people in under-resourced neighborhoods. The church’s generous giving has nearly doubled in the last year in anticipation of God’s work in this new season. They are also leaning into conversations about cultural, ethnic and socioeconomic diversity so that they can be used to see the gospel flourish in all parts of Denver.
Fellowship Denver is currently looking to add a Pastor of Community and Mission to their elder team as a strategic leadership and community developer who believes that rich gospel fellowship is at the heart of mission.
By any standard, Denver, Colorado is an attractive place to live. Surrounded by the Rocky Mountains, it is filled with seemingly endless outdoor sports opportunities and gorgeous scenery. As the most populous city in Colorado, Denver is a place for both families and solo adventurers alike and is surprisingly sunny throughout most of the year. Downtown offers world-class cultural attractions, craft breweries, awesome music venues and dining. However, for all of its glory, the majority of residents are either skeptical of organized religion or may profess faith but lack a clear understanding of Jesus with very little presence of gospel-centered churches.
The ideal candidate for Pastor of Community and Mission at Fellowship Denver is a strategic leader who can both cast vision and develop simple, practical, reproducible approaches for supporting and multiplying discipleship communities. This person will:
• Build a regionally and culturally diverse network of Fellowship Groups and leaders

• Connect with, pastor, and develop Fellowship Group leaders
