Your Context.

First Christian Church is an imperfect group of people who have plenty of differences—and we love it that way. We’re seekers and followers who have all come to the same realization: God is for everyone, so we are too. Together we seek to follow Jesus and tell the whole world about His love for them.

We say we’re for everyone, and we mean it.

Our staff team works creatively to minister to people in all life stages, going to great lengths to make God’s love known to them. Our Executive Assistant is someone who’s ready to sweat the details so others don’t have to, enabling staff to pour themselves into their specific ministries. This position is critical to keeping things organized and running smoothly behind the scenes.

The ideal candidate is friendly and intuitive. Someone who lets nothing fall through the cracks and accommodates changes with ease. They’re flexible and able to look ahead to anticipate the needs of others, but also have situational awareness to step into the needs of the moment.

This position is for a true professional in administrative tasks, verbal and written communication, and leading an administrative team to support the ministries of the church.
