General Overview

North Avenue Presbyterian Church is a diverse community that is committed to loving and caring for one another as we grow in our faith. An urban church in the heart of Atlanta, North Avenue has been worshiping on the corner of North Avenue and Peachtree Street since 1898. Our mission is to love and worship God, to be transformed as we grow in Christ, and to make visible the Kingdom of God as we serve Atlanta and the world.

The position to support North Avenue pastors is critical to the overall effectiveness of the church and our ministry, since pastors are the leaders of vision, spiritual growth, and well-being of the church. Their schedules are busy with various activities that require many details to be organized and handled well. Pastors need to be able to count on the right people, so they can focus on their ministries in the work of the church.
