    Position Description


    Downey First Christian Church (DFCC) is seeking a committed Christian leader to serve in the role of Lead Pastor.  This individual will guide the ministry staff to lead and grow a congregation that currently averages 194 in English language worship and 71 in Spanish language worship in 2018 (these attendance numbers includes all age groups that meet for Sunday worship services on our campus).



    Located in a southeast suburb of Los Angeles, Downey First Christian Church (DFCC) was founded in 1869 when people were streaming into the virtually unpopulated valley between the San Gabriel River and the Rio Hondo River.  With foundations that began with the rapidly growing settlement of the west coast, DFCC has embraced dynamic change through the building of a major city and multiple community transformations.  Loving God is the foundation of the Christian faith and we pursue Him through worship, biblical teaching, fellowship, and prayer.  Our church is not a building or a place; it is a diverse group of people pursuing God together, and in the process, practicing the love of Christ by living in authentic community.  We also believe that every member is called to serve, to make a difference in the lives of others.

    The Lead Pastor is expected to direct the church in accomplishing its mission. Downey First Christian Church is committed to transforming ourselves, homes, community and the world by pursuing God, building community and unleashing compassion.

    DFCC is a Restoration Movement church, and as such, the Lead Pastor is expected to uphold Our Position and embrace Our Strategy.


    Our Position (principles of the Restoration Movement)

    1. A Christian church: Our message is that “Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God.”  We require no other creed. He alone is Savior.
    2. A church of Christ: The church belongs to Him.  We have no authority to change the teachings, rewrite the rules, alter membership requirements, or usurp His place.  The church is not a democracy.
    3. A church seeking unity:Members of this church seek to be one in Christ with all others He calls His own.
    4. A church seeking to restore: As much as possible, we imitate the New Testament precedents.  This is why our baptism is by immersion, our Communion is every Lord’s Day, our leaders are called elders, our preaching is about Christ, and our prayers are in Christ’s name.  Even our church name is rooted in the earliest days, when disciples were called Christians and their congregations were often addressed as “churches of Christ.”
    5. An apostolic church:The church, Ephesians 2:20 states, is “built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone.”  Whatever we know about Christ and the church we learned from Jesus’ closets companions; the apostles.
    6. A thinking church:In the same Ephesian letter, Paul prays that God will give a “Spirit of wisdom and revelation.  So then you may know him better…” Christian faith demands the best our minds can give, so we are a studying church, seeking to apply biblical truth intelligently.
    7. A feeling church: Ours is not a dryly intellectual approach to God.  We rejoice, praise, pray and love.  We serve from the heart.  We are unashamed of the gospel and not embarrassed to let our excitement be seen.
    8. A sharing church:We share our faith and love with as many as we can reach.  We know that everything we have belongs to God and that our possessions are to be used for His purposes.
    9. A free church:We have no bishops or superintendents or national headquarters to determine local church policies.  We elect our own leaders, call and support our own ministers, and decide where our mission money will go.  We are not isolationists; our congregations freely associate with one another to accomplish tasks too big for one church alone.
    10. A growing church:We want to grow, because we are under Christ’s commission to disciple the world.  We haven’t completed the task yet, so Christian churches and churches of Christ are renewing our commitment to go unto the ends of the earth, preaching and baptizing and teaching, until the whole world knows the one Lord of all.

    Our Strategy (how we intentionally accomplish ministry at DFCC):

    • Pursue God: through Sunday Morning worship experiences.
    • Build Community:through small group, Bible study and Sunday school participation.
    • Unleash Compassion:through local and global opportunities to serve others.

    Specific Responsibilities:

    • Preach most Sunday mornings, being the main voice to proclaim the gospel message and challenge the congregation with a vision to more fully accomplish our mission.
    • Provide Biblical teaching in other congregational settings as appropriate.
    • Lead and guide the church staff to maximize the effectiveness of each staff member.
    • Partner with staff, elders, and ministry team leaders to wisely use the resources of the congregation and generate new resources to maximize the effectiveness of the church.
    • Oversees ministries so that the church cares for the needs of each part of the body.

    Required Education and Experience:

    • Bachelor’s degree in Biblical studies or Theology with a minimum of 7 years of pastoral experience or a Master’s degree with 5 years minimum of pastoral experience.
    • Experience leading (or assisting to lead) a growing church in an urban setting.
    • Ability to build staff, elders, and other church leaders into an effective team.
    • Ability to articulate vision and strategy for the church in a compelling way.
    • Ability to recruit, equip, and sustain others in the vital ministries of the church.
    • Ability to connect well to people across the congregation and from our community.
    • Ability to communicate with the entire congregation in both English & Spanish is desired.

    Personal Characteristics:

    • Dedicated to the Lord Jesus Christ and the success of the gospel.
    • Committed to the authority of God, as revealed in the Bible.
    • Mature Believer who meets the qualifications of an Elder (1 Timothy 3:1-7; Titus 1:6-9)
    • Models Christ-like commitment and Christian living.
    • Actively growing spiritually and professionally.

    Position Description

    E5 Church Staffing is pleased to announce an opening for a FT Children’s Minister for Southern Heights Christian Church, in Lebanon, Missouri.

    Lebanon is a growing community in a county of approximately 36,000 in Central Missouri that boasts a strong job market and cost of living significantly below the national average. The beautiful Niangua and Gasconade Rivers run through Lebanon in addition to the iconic route 66. Locals are known to enjoy the scenic beauty of the Ozarks by leisurely floating down the river, and the fishing opportunities are tremendous as recognized by Outdoor life Magazine which has named Lebanon a Top 200 Town for Sportsman on three different occasions. Lebanon is truly a friendly place with friendly people and is a great place to raise a family while embracing a slower pace of life.

    Southern Heights Christian Church is an established church of approximately 325 that has experienced tremendous growth since the hiring of new Sr. Minister Jeff Hinson in 2016. As a result, SHCC is seeking to hire a full-time Children’s Minister to serve the 100+ children that are a part of SHCC on a weekly basis. Jeff has a strong background in Children’s ministry and since his arrival the church leadership has embraced an emphasis on young families. It is fairly common to hear staff, eldership and even volunteers relate that SHCC’s priorities are children, youth and adults… in that order. SHCC embraces a “fail forward” culture that encourages trying new things and embracing an attitude of learning from failures regardless of result.

    The Children’s Ministers primary responsibility will be to oversee all aspects of programming for the weekend and midweek services for birth through 5th grade. This includes the coordination of all volunteer systems and processes. In addition, it is expected that the Children’s Minister fosters a love for reaching young families in the community that aren’t currently engaged in SHCC. The person assuming this role will need to understand the development of systems and processes for volunteer coordination, community outreach and discipleship of young families. To perform the duties of this role adequately, it is necessary for candidates to show a history of creativity, strong work ethic, and a willingness to embrace a team ministry concept.

    A college degree is preferred but not required for this position. Non-traditional candidates are welcome to apply. SHCC is offering a very generous salary package that reflects their value of young families and this role within the church.

    To apply for this position please submit a cover letter and resume to We will not be able to respond to every application. If you have not been contacted within two weeks of your submission, you have not been chosen to move forward in the search process.

    Position Description

    Why: Jesus strategically poured into disciples so that they could spread the Good News about the Kingdom of God. These same disciples carried on this tradition as we carry it on today through equipping the saints for Kingdom work.


    What: At Northside, we are committed to pursuing God, loving people, and transforming the world. One way we can faithfully steward this commitment is through the equipping of ministry interns.


    Who: Interns are expected to be Christ-followers who submit to the authority of Scripture and acknowledge field mentors under the guidance of the Northside eldership as both advocates and disciplinarians.


    How: Internships exist for two reasons: A) that individuals called into the ministry may receive hands-on experience which prepares them for vocational leadership and B) that the ministers serving said interns may sharpen their own craft and conviction by training those up-and-coming.


    Where: To serve in God’s flock is to be a “jack of all trades.” No one ministry role at Northside is uniquely specialized but asks individuals to use their calling to fill a diverse list of needs. Ministry interns should expect to be given broad exposure to church-work.


    When: To best equip ministry interns, Northside expects that all individuals applying for the ministry internship position to commit to no less than a three month period.

    The internship is paid.

    Housing is offered.

Well Equipped

“I look back at my four years at Kentucky Christian University often and fondly. The classes were relevant, the professors were genuine, and the campus was focused on the schools mission: Christ, Character, Career. I was well equipped to minister to and lead worship in the hundreds of congregations we visit each year as the band “64 to Grayson”. If I went back and was faced with the choice to go to KCU again, I would do it in a heartbeat.”
