Full Time

The Ransom Church is excited to announce an opening for a full-time Ransom Kids Team Lead.  We’re looking for the right person to join our hard-working, fun, and passionate team as we follow God’s call to set captives free in Sioux Falls and our surrounding communities.


The Ransom is an exciting place to serve, for a number of reasons:

  • We are a young church—only 11 years old—but have grown rapidly into a dynamic multiplying church.  We currently have four multisite campuses and two church plants on the ground with 3 more plants being rolled out in the next year.

  • We aren’t what many people think of when they think of “church.” We started in a movie theater, but now we meet in an old, renovated warehouse downtown, a renovated dance studio, a steel framed building and a 100-year-old church.

  • We have a meaningful ministry among people of all socioeconomic levels. We are a church where a homeless man and a CEO may be found kneeling together in prayer.  It’s a beautiful thing!

  • We are devoted to “setting captives free,” and this takes place in many ways—whether it’s people in our jail ministry giving their lives to Christ or baptizing over 50 people in one weekend! This mission drives everything we do and we’re excited to say that God is making it happen.

  • We’re a church that isn’t afraid to fail. If you can’t handle failure and are afraid to take risks, you probably won’t enjoy it here!  We love taking risks and we value creativity – though that does mean we don’t get it right all the time.

  • Our gatherings are real, raw, and relational. People come as they are but are challenged to move closer to God.  Our worship expressions are creative and heart-felt.  We are a church that loves to worship!

The Bible says that Jesus Christ came to give his life as a Ransom for many.

As a church we hold firm to three core values:

  • Worship Free of Inhibition

  • Serve Free of Self

Since 2009, it has been our mission to set captives free. We want to leave no corner of our community untouched by the very real power of Jesus Christ. We seek to be a church who meets with God without anything getting in the way, who holds one another accountable and does life together in community, and who serves wholeheartedly with passion and practicality.
