Music Resident

Grace Community Church, Fremont, OH is looking for a man to serve in a paid, year-long residency, as the music director at our Northwood, OH campus- GRACEPOINTE Church, with the good potential for a full-time staff position. The position is full-time hours (45-50 hours/week) and pays $30,000 (with no other benefits). If you are passionate about serving Jesus Christ, energetic, organized, flexible, can bring energy to a worship service, and want to grow while helping a church grow through drawing people to Christ for salvation then our church is for you!    

We are a gospel-focused, community-focused, creative, doctrinally conservative, non-charismatic, church that is growing. Post-covid we are averaging over 2000 people on Sunday mornings at our 3 campuses. You would join our team of 11 full-time and 7 part-time staff by serving at our Northwood, OH campus- GRACEPOINTE Church. GRACEPOINTE is a 4-year old relaunch and has grown to 190+ people with an average attendance of over 110. We have been growing and laying a solid foundation through discipling new believers which has positioned us well to continue to grow even more in 2021. Currently GRACEPOINTE has a full-time campus pastor with the rest of the ministries being led by highly talented and committed volunteers.

Our church is looking for a man who has a growing relationship with Jesus Christ, is biblically grounded, passionate about ministry, and can build a team. You would collaborate with the worship leaders from our 2 other campuses to develop the musical worship portion of our services (currently each campus has a 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. service). Unlike the other 2 campuses, this position would also help develop our young adult ministry and student ministry by coordinating at least one monthly event for our young adults (currently they meet the last Sunday of the month for lunch) and work with our volunteer student ministries director to develop relationships with our students. Our student ministry currently meets on Thursday nights along with our other weekly Bible studies. These two ministries have provided several of our developing praise band members.  

To get the ball rolling, please email Pastor Harald, the Northwood campus pastor, at hbjerga@ohiograce.com. He will send you the application and job description and will be your contact person through the application process. We look forward to hearing from you!

Pastor (Kent, a suburb of Seattle,WA)

 

Grace Fellowship of Kent, WA is seeking the man called to serve as its pastor

Grace Fellowship Church of Kent, Washington is seeking the man called by God to become its next pastor.  We look forward to hearing from him.

The pastor position is a full-time position (the only paid employee of the church) and is the only pastoral position.  The previous pastor retired and relocated.  A retired pastor is serving part-time in the pulpit.  Sunday school classes and the ministries for women, men and children are led by lay church members.  Four men comprise the church elder board.  Church member volunteers also perform most typical administrative and worship service duties (e.g., worship music, ushers/stewards, accounting and secretarial, custodial and maintenance).

The church facility is a well-maintained two-story property owned by the church, in a fully developed residential neighborhood (across the street from a public elementary school) in the city of Kent (population 120,000), a suburb of Seattle.  The church neighborhood is very diverse in race and ethnic origin and has a mix of single-family homes and apartments.

Our ministry serves a blended community of people speaking English and/or Mandarin.  Some church activities and small groups involve everyone while others focus on a particular language group.  Church worship services are conducted in English with a live audio translation available in Mandarin; attendance averages about 60.  We seek a man who will build on our growing church by encouraging and retaining the current church body while inviting others to join with them from Kent and nearby communities.

The church is without debt and has operated with a balanced budget for more than ten years.  We expect future giving will need to grow with attendance, but existing church financial resources will provide a buffer while that occurs.

Men who have an interest in learning more about the opportunity to shepherd this flock and reach out for Christ should:
