Job Overview

North Church is a vibrant and healthy church in the heart of Albuquerque, New Mexico. We are a church that seeks to treasure the Gospel of Jesus Christ together. Our church community is primarily made up of younger families amongst a strong group of faithful saints. We are part of the Acts 29 Church Planting Network and are focused, as a body, on care for one another as well as evangelism, mission, and church planting.

We have existed under various names in our 21 year history as a local church and in Spring 2021, we will move back into the Nob Hill neighborhood of our city and return to our former name, “City on a Hill”. We are currently renovating our first ever permanent facility and hope to move into it in 2022.
