Description of Position
We are looking to find a Student Pastor who will lead our church’s call to love and disciple students, grades 6-12. Our current Student Ministry ministers to over 100 students each week and we are excited about the future of our student ministry. Our goal
is to have a new Student Pastor in place by August 1.
About Our Church
Tidal Creek Fellowship is a Non-Denominational church planted 14 years ago. Four years ago we moved into our present facility after meeting in a school for 10 years. Tidal Creek began with 7 families in 2002 and today that number has grown into a church
that sees over 600 in Sunday attendance. Our heartbeat is to be a community of faith that takes seriously Christ’s command to make disciples.
Tidal Creek Fellowship is located in Beaufort, South Carolina. Beaufort is a small coastal town known for its charm, hospitality, history, beautiful marsh views, and military bases. Our small town is no longer a secret as Southern Living magazine recently
recognized Beaufort as a “Small Town We Love” and in 2013 Beaufort was ranked #1 as America’s Happiest Seaside Towns by readers of Coastal Living Magazine. Our area is also expected to be one of the fastest growing areas in the U.S. over the next 15 years.
