Edmond, OK /
Digital Technology – Information Technology /
The Director of Data Strategy will collaborate with Central and campus teams to oversee the organizational projects ensuring data consistency and integrity throughout the organization. 
Did you ever think God could use your talents or experience at a church? Many of us felt the same way you feel now—we had God-given skills and a passion to serve Him, but no idea that those skills and passions could intersect right here, right now, at Life.Church. But God doesn’t work within our parameters. He creates opportunities we could have never imagined, but it’s up to us to embrace His plan. Where you come from matters, sure—but when you bring your skills to Life.Church, there’s no telling where God could take your future. At Life.Church we truly believe we’re just getting started.  We’ve been given the opportunity to steward people as they intersect with the God that created all things-and changes lives!
At Life.Church, we use data across multiple teams to guide strategic decisions helping us to lead people to become fully devoted followers of Christ. The Information Technology Team is looking for a Director of Data Strategy to continue help us make those data-informed decisions and collaborate with Central and campus teams. Do you love working with others to accomplish amazing things?  Do you see trends in everything you look at? Passionate about excellence in the details? Then keep reading!
