    Position Description

    Avoca Christian Church is searching for a Student Pastor who is looking for a leader who is willing to start from scratch with a blank slate to build a life giving, lost student reaching, student ministry (7th-12th Grades).  We are a church in the midst of a transition and revitilization that has been very difficult at times, we will be open and honest with our struggles and answer any and every question you may have.  We have recently made the transition from a blended/traditional worship style to a Spirit lead modern style.  Avoca was also a church that was focused on itself and ‘taking care of our own first’ (yes, that was actually said) that is truly becoming a Great Commission Church.  All teaching is straight forward and biblical not shying away from hard truths.    Some things will promise are 1) Complete support from the Lead Pastor and Elders, 2) A fun work environment that boarders on ridiculous some days, 3) a city/county that is full of unchurched students, we made the Barna top 100 unchurched list (yay us), 4) and at times, difficult challenges, we want you to know that going in, but we’re in this together.

    A few of the key concepts we are looking for in a student ministry are 1) Biblical teaching, we can’t out entertain the world, 2) Community, fun comes with anything when there’s community, 3) Service, learning to serve and love like Jesus, 4) the use of conferecnes to enhance the spritual lives of teens, 5) and no, there’s nothing wrong with having some fun either.

    The Student Pastor will have opportunities to preach on Sunday mornings to develop skills and prepare for ministry after student ministry and will participate in other areas of church leadership.  We believe in growth and training, we all can get better and we believe in being a sending church if that is where God leads.

    Open Position:  Senior Minister

     

    NCC is beginning a search for our next preaching minister.  The responsibilities include preaching, teaching, providing staff leadership, and working alongside the elders to encourage the church in its mission to serve Jesus Christ.

     

    We are looking for a candidate who is committed to the work of preaching and who can apply Biblical truth to life in a way that is faithful to the Word and encouraging to the church.  His educational credentials should come from one of the Christian Church Schools/Seminaries that uphold the principles of the Restoration Movement.

     

    Northside Christian Church is a congregation of about 100, located on the north side of Columbus, GA.  Columbus is a city of about 250,000 that provides plenty of opportunity for recreation, shopping, education, and is a great place to raise a family.  Although our current facility was built in 1989, we went through a major upgrade in 2012-2013.  Our worship is a good mix of contemporary & traditional music.  And we believe that God is using us to make a difference in the life and faith of His Church.

     

    Organizationally, NCC has (6) Elders, who give oversight to the ministry of the church.  We have deacons who serve in many different capacities.  And we have several small group and committee ministries that support the work of the church.  One of those committees is focused on missions and the support that we send each month.  About six years ago we sent a team to Linda Vista Mexico to help build a church building there, and we have made a couple of other trips there to encourage the people and to offer our continued support for their congregation.

     

    The point is that we are open to the call of the Gospel on our lives, and we are eager for God to lead us into the next phase of our congregational life.  We want to grow in number, but only as we grow in the Kingdom; extending the love and life of Christ to all those around us.

     

    If you are interested in working with NCC, please send your resume to us.  We will respond in a timely manner.  Most of the nuts and bolts, like salary, can be discussed at a later point in the interview process.  Our prayer is that God will bring the right fit together for His purposes at NCC.

    Guatemala Field Coordinator

    Role: Help and assist the Guatemala field director in accomplishing tasks and goals for operations in Guatemala.

    Responsibilities: Lead home building mission trips, assist local pastors with family follow up, and assist the field director with team care, pastors committee, and daily operations.

    • Health insurance and other benefits provided.
    • Salaries are fund raised in full by the missionary.
    • Mature Christian character required.

    Casas por Cristo

    Casas por Cristo exists to open the door for local pastors and churches to share the love of Jesus Christ by serving.

    Our mission is to build and serve. We are builders. That’s who we are. We build homes for families that need to be reminded that Jesus loves them. We build relationships between volunteers, families, and pastors that would otherwise never have met. We strive to build the Kingdom of God by partnering with other local churches and ministries, leveraging their influence and history within the communities we serve. We strive to build opportunities for growth by creating structured experiences that cause our volunteers to be stretched beyond their comfort zones. Through this building process, God allows us to interact with our teams, local families, pastors, churches, vendors, and fellow missionaries. We do not want to take any of these interactions for granted. We believe that these are unique opportunities presented to us by God to serve each other.

    We began building homes along the U.S. / México border in 1993, first in Ciudad Juárez. We have since expanded to Ciudad Acuña, MéxicoSan Raimundo, Guatemala; and Santiago, Dominican Republic. To date, we have provided over 5,000 families with homes. We are dedicated to meeting the physical need of better housing as a way of also meeting the spiritual need for Jesus Christ.

    Casas por Cristo is primarily comprised of support-based missionaries. Each staff missionary is responsible for raising the majority of their salary. Most support comes in the form of donations from friends, family, churches, and team members. In addition to leading teams of volunteers through the building process, staff missionaries are responsible for administrative duties that allow the ministry to function.

    The Casas por Cristo Pastors Boards are comprised of nearly 150 pastors who live and work in México, Guatemala, and the Dominican Republic. These dedicated pastors meet monthly to worship together, encourage one another, and submit home applications for approval. Each pastor is personally responsible for visiting with the recipient family before and after they receive a home. This process is an opportunity to spread the Gospel and make disciples.

    Our Board is comprised of individuals from all over the U.S. and Canada.
