The Role: Outreach Team Lead

Northeast Christian Church is a community passionate about outreach, worship, and community. Our ministries have grown along with the community since we began in 1977.

We empower the people within our church to love their neighbors. Our partnerships with local schools, nonprofits, and small businesses provide countless opportunities for our community to carry the love of Jesus outside the walls of the church to make a tangible impact in our city.

Through serving the city and beyond, our Love the Ville movement began in 2014 when 1,800 people from Northeast Louisville took our Sunday church services to the streets of Clifton, helping the neighbors and local businesses. This movement is now fueled by our annual; Christmas Eve offering with three specific focuses: loving our city, schools, and the world. This generosity has grown from $280,000 in 2014 to $1.7 million in 2022.

Our Sunday services are laid back, so come as you are, and grab a cup of coffee on the way in! We have a time of worship with music, take communion together, collect a weekly offering, and hear a message designed to inspire and challenge each person toward growth in their relationship with Jesus.
