About Our Church:
The mission of INSPIRE Church is "INSPIRING people to know, follow and love Jesus" by creating disciples who GO, SHOW, KNOW, GROW, GO (KEEP GOING) & FOLLOW. We are all about this 6 fold mission with a great emphasis on "GO(ing) and SHOW(ing)" others Jesus. This mission sets the course for all we do as a church to fulfill the mission our Savior has given us.

One our greatest passions is telling others about Jesus. We make it a priority to be a Church that unchurched people love to attend. We aim to be a place where everyone is welcome.

INSPIRE is in a season of growth and development. We are currently revamping many of our ministries while striving to disciple the 500+ people who attend. When people walk through the doors of our corporate worship service, we strive to meet each attendee with tremendous hospitality. When they are ready to take a next step, we help them experience our 6 fold mission.

As a rural area that's only a few miles from the amazing sandy shores of Lake Michigan, there are lots of things to do with your family - shopping at the farmers market, hiking the dunes, biking, beaching, and camping.

INSPIRE Church is seeking a high-level, high-capacity, hungry-to-learn leader who can work both independently and collaboratively as the Children's Ministry Pastor. This position will oversee all aspects of ministry from birth to 5th grade.
