Birmingham, Alabama

Overview:

The Director of Creative Arts will oversee the Creative Arts Department and the Creative Process. The Creative Arts Department is responsible for the creation and implementation of all the ideas and elements necessary for our weekly adult worship services across all Faith Chapel campuses.

THE FAITH CHAPEL STORY

Faith Chapel is a non-denominational family that is one church in two
locations. Our central campus is in Birmingham, AL—an affordable, familyfriend city that is one of the largest in the state and still expanding. Our
second campus location was launched in the fall of 2019 in Columbus, GA
—a military town that is the 3rd largest city in GA. At Faith Chapel, the
mission and vision is “to grow people up through God’s Word to Reflect
Jesus.”
Faith Chapel launched in April 1981 in the 4-room home of its Founding
Pastor, Mike Moore. Over several decades, through God’s faithfulness,
Pastor Mike developed what began as a small home-based Bible study
into a growing congregation of thousands committed to transforming lives
and families through its weekly worship services, local outreach, and
national television broadcast. In December 2002, Faith Chapel completed
construction on its $16 million, 3,000-seat “WordDome” worship facility,
which through God’s help, the church paid for entirely debt free. In 2010,
the church completed construction on another of its major building
projects—a $27 million family activity center known as “The Bridge.”
Consisting of six interconnected Domes, The Bridge houses many
amenities including a 12-lane bowling alley; a Christian teen dance club; a
smoke-free and alcohol-free Christian adult event facility; an indoor
playground for children; a fitness center complete with strength training
equipment, an indoor track, and basketball courts, and a lobby area with
a centrally located climbing wall. The vision of The Bridge is to provide a
safe place where people of all ages can form life-giving relationships. The
facility serves as a strategic tool used by Faith Chapel to “bridge” the
gap that exists between those far from God in the community and the
local church.
In June 2022, Pastor Mike announced a new season of ministry as he
transitions out of his role as the Senior Pastor of Faith Chapel at the end
of 2022. On January 1, 2023, his son, Michael K. Moore will assume the
Lead Pastor role. The leadership and members of Faith Chapel have
embraced this new beginning and are excited to walk by faith into a fresh
vision, knowing that our best days as a church are still ahead!
