We are looking to invest in an OCC student who wants hands-on pastoral ministry experience during his school program. Our church wants to operate like a family and do a decent job of it. We have a full time lead pastor, full time associate, and part time childrens’ minister. Our youth program is in limbo currently. We are only six months old and our people are excited about what God is doing in our church. Ideally, we would like a student who needs a church to call his home. We will consider investing in someone from another church to give beneficial experience, but we much prefer someone who wants to invest here long term and serve the city with us.
Opportunities will include learning various types of pastoral administration and finance that a pastor needs to know (and that you won’t learn in Bible college!), band participation (if gifted), 1-on-1 discipleship with members and new believers, assistance developing discipleship curriculum, participation in staff meetings, contributing to church vision, occasional preaching, participating in a small group (or leading if numbers rise), and teaching if opportunities arise. Since we are a church plant, we have a lot going on and not enough hands to handle it! So you will get tons of experience in many areas, which will go along way with whatever you do in future ministry. I look forward to speaking with you!
Call Todd at the number listed and discuss your interest, your desires for ministry, and whether you would be a good fit with us.
