The position also includes mentoring by Leo Schuster (Pastor/Head of Staff) and Valerie Tompson (Executive Director).

Mentoring Church Context
Our most recent pastoral intern is leaving Houston to be with her family in Nashville. She added a younger voice to our staff and an upfront female voice in our worship services. While that is how she helped City Church, we know that God may bring us another resident with different gifts.
Growth: We meet at House of Blues in downtown Houston. Some view it as a strength but the lack of a permanent facility create challenges. Another area of growth is cohesiveness among our congregation as many of our members are spread out in the greater Houston area.
