Church Description

Paradise Alliance Church is an established multi-site church in a quaint community in the foothills and the valley of northern California. You'll have the best of both worlds - our Paradise campus is in a small town with a slower pace of life and our Chico campus is just a fifteen minute drive to a bustling university town. Both campuses are surrounded by natural beauty, hiking, lakes, etc.

Paradise was severely impacted by a wildfire in 2018. Paradise Alliance Church has served as a beacon of hope in the aftermath. The people in this town are driven to establish the way of life they once knew and PAC is here to support them meet their spiritual, emotional and physical needs.

We are excited to see the growth that has taken place over the past two and a half years and now it is time to find the right person to lead our children and their families. You will find that our Paradise campus is a large campus sitting on over 14 acres of land. We have a large gym, beautiful nursery and multiple Sunday school classrooms just waiting for you to put your touch on them! Our Chico campus has the excitement of a church plant with families dedicated and engaged. On a typical Sunday you will find about 25 kids at our Chico campus and 45 at our Paradise campus. You won't be alone, we have established teams of incredible volunteers at both campuses.

If you are passionate about helping children and families find and follow Jesus alongside a team of coworkers who love Jesus, collaboration, grace and laughter, then apply!
