Pinelake Church

We love to teach children about Jesus! And, we're excited about connecting with children and their families through a vibrant sports ministry in the Reservoir community. We're looking for a Sports Ministry Associate at our Reservoir Campus to help us lead the way toward seeing more families and more kids transformed by the incredible hope of Christ!

If you're inspired and motivated by sports ministry and the limitless opportunities to see children learn from Christ, live in Christ and lead others to Christ, we'd love to hear from you.

We'll connect quickly if you are:

  • A sports ministry enthusiast and get excited about leading parents and young children to know Christ through sports;
  • Seasoned in organizing leagues and coaching others in sports ministry development;
  • Creative, fun-loving, and enjoy "out-of-the-box" thinking to engage children and their families in the local church;
  • A strong communicator who always wants to get better; and,
  • Leading in a ministry of 100 or more.

You'll thrive with us if you:

  • Challenge the status quo and think missionally;
  • Love going the extra mile to reach children and families;
  • Believe sports ministry is an incredible tool to see children and parents come to know Jesus;
  • Dream big and have the organizational know-how to execute the vision; and,
  • Are a team player who collaborates on projects that are vital to the larger ministry.


Educational & job requirements:
Bachelors degree (higher education is even better) and one to two years of full-time ministry experience.

Our story:

The story of Pinelake Church began in February of 1971 in Brandon, Mississippi in a mobile chapel in a rural area near The Reservoir. By God's grace and power, our faith family has grown into a dynamic church spanning five cities throughout our state -- Clinton, Madison, Oxford, the Reservoir, and Starkville. Weekly, we serve over 12,000 people, but we celebrate stories of life change one person at a time.

Our Reservoir Kid's Ministry normally serves 770 children and their families every month. That's 20% of all of the kids in this age range in our immediate area! We believe God has an even larger plan to reach kids and families in the Reservoir community with the love of Jesus using sports ministry. We're currently operating programs like Upward basketball, football, and cheerleading.
