As Denver Community Church, we know many are wounded and disturbed by unhealthy religion. This is why we invite everyone to explore the expansive heart of God and practice love in the ways of Jesus, so that together we can find healing and be a healing presence in our world. We recognize all people and gifts are needed. We are crew not passengers. This is why we invite all people to participate with us in the work to which we have been called; equipping and mobilizing them for Kingdom work. Take a look at our open positions below and reach out to hr@denverchurch.org if you have questions or want to learn more.

OPEN POSITIONS

PASTORAL RESIDENCY
