Dynamic Church in Texas is Hiring!!!!
Aaron Hur Group has partnered with a dynamic and growing nondenominational church located in the beautiful community of The Woodlands, TX (located right outside of Houston) in search for their next Worship Pastor. The church was planted in The Woodlands just over 5 years ago in the aftermath of hurricane Harvey. The small group quickly connected with people in the community and launched the church on September 10, 2017. With a commitment to live out the principles of the Acts 2 church, the team relentlessly pressed forward through every obstacle that came their way. Over the years, the church has consistently grown to become an instrument of light and love in the community. Highly relational and firmly rooted in God’s Word, this church is characterized by a strong family focus, evangelism through outreach, excellent service programming, and community impact. Founded with a vision to reach those far from Christ and lead them to becoming fully devoted followers of Jesus. Families are a core emphasis. Each child and student are known and invested in, through the church’s quality children and student ministries. The heart of the church is also seen in its service in both local and global capacities. Moreover, driven by the belief that one is never more like Christ than when they serve, the church encourages each person to embrace The church’s heart and DNA for service, embodying it through regular service opportunities.. The church is a truly non-denominational church and perhaps even more appropriately an “inter-denominational” church. Open to people from all backgrounds and constantly striving to be a church devoted to breaking down denominational walls. Through relevant teaching, heart-felt worship, honest friendships, constant prayer, and compassionate care, The church' doors are open to everyone at any place on their spiritual journey. The reputation of the church in the community is excellent and the church is well positioned for growth in the coming years. With a building expansion underway, this Worship pastor will help continue our growth and impact in the area for years to come.

Taking off our masks and daring to be KNOWN
The church has a variety of ministries designed to reach and serve the community while developing committed followers of Christ. There are three primary avenues of ministry that provide opportunities to connect with God, grow with one another, and serve as God leads. All people at The church are invited to be committed to attending and participating in Sunday services, building community through the small groups ministry, and serving both inside and outside the church walls.
Sunday Services: For many people, the front door of The Church is the Sunday services. The Church is committed to current music styles and a variety of worship expressions including prayer, communion, giving, and teaching. Teaching is both in-depth and applicable to life. Groups: With community as a core value, it is essential that individuals and families live connected to others in the church. The Groups ministry is made up of a wide variety of options, including: senior adults, women’s and men’s groups, college and young adults, and many more. Serve: At the center of The Church is a desire to move people out into the world to serve. Jesus makes it clear that his vision was to come into the world to serve and give his life as a ransom for many. The Church highlights many service opportunities for individuals of all ages in the church, in the local community, and around the world. WORSHIP
There is currently one Sunday worship service –10:00 AM. All worship employs modern or contemporary music, and the attire for services is casual and comfortable. Worship music is instrumentally driven & contemporary in sound. We want to be as relevant to the worshiper as possible without compromising the purpose & direction of the worship toward God. Therefore, our heart is that most of our worship, lyrically, is directed Upward and honoring toward Him. Accessible, applicable, biblical teaching is important. Services have been the drawing factor for visitors in the past, and will continue to be a reason people come and stay at the church. COMMUNITY
The Woodlands is a master planned community just north of Houston. 44-square miles of ‘the bubble’ (as it’s affectionately called) offers many entertainment venues including two movie theaters, over 150 restaurants, a publicly accessible waterway, dancing waterfalls with music, and the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, the summer home of the Houston Symphony. The Woodlands is in a heavily forested area, and much of the community has retained trees for shade and decoration. The Woodlands Waterway is more than 1/2 mile long, reaching from The Woodlands Mall around to Lake Woodlands and with wide, lighted sidewalks along both sides and Waterway Taxis. Other attractions include Market Street,
an old style ‘Main Street’ pedestrian shopping district, a movie theater and a variety of shops and restaurants. The Woodlands Mall borders the waterway and is adjacent to Market Street, forming a large pedestrian-friendly shopping district. Each of the ‘villages’ in The Woodlands has its own shopping center with a core grocery store and shops, banks, gas, restaurants, etc.
The city is largely unaffected by the ups and downs of the economy due to its diverse corporate clientele. Hospitals, major oil companies and retail make up a large portion of area businesses. Area schools consistently rank in the top of the nation and many local events such as the Insperity Golf Tournament, Ironman Texas and the Children’s Art Festival call the Woodlands home.
Many consider The Woodlands as one of the best areas in Houston. As a matter of fact, it’s been voted as such multiple times. Recently voted the #1 city in America by Niche.com
Those who seek to relocate to a place that offers a quality lifestyle to raise a family with great amenities should not have to look further. The Woodlands offer a great option for this, as well as a great environment to plant a church and reach individuals and families for Christ.
