FURTHER DETAILS Genesis Church is a gospel driven community on mission to lead people to Jesus located in Gulf Shores, AL with an average attendance of 200. We are prayerfully searching for someone whose primary role will be to serve as our worship and creative arts pastor and a secondary role will be to serve in an area based on giftedness and strength.

STORY AND LOCATION Genesis Church is a growing church that whole-heartedly believes the best is yet to come. Shawn Kennedy, who serves as the Lead Pastor, joined Genesis Church in September of 2017 to lead the church through a fresh start and new beginning. Since that time Genesis Church has entered into a new season with new dreams and expectations. In November of 2018, Genesis Church relocated and remodeled a beautiful facility in the growing coastal community of north Gulf Shores, AL on the edge of south Foley, AL. The area is located in the fastest growing county in Alabama, with each area growing by over 25% in the last ten years. The church serves three groups of people throughout the year due to the close proximity to the beach. There is a winter community, a surrounding community, and a summer community.
