January 25 – January 25, 2018
The English language pastor will provide spiritual care and leadership for the English language congregation: preaching and leading worship that speaks to people’s everyday lives; developing engaging programming that cultivates lay leadership capacities, biblical understanding, and spiritual attentiveness among congregants; and providing pastoral care. In fulfilling these roles, the English language pastor will collaborate with the English Worship and English Shepherding Ministries.
The English Language Pastor will also minister to the community beyond the walls of NSBC through missional outreach and evangelistic activity appropriate for the particular needs and sensitivities of the surrounding neighborhood, which includes (but is not limited to) families, young professional adults, long time residents and a large LGBTQ community. Uniquely, our church community does not currently reflect the broader community outside of our walls, which provides an opportunity.
As a member of the pastoral team, the English Language pastor will also work closely and on equal footing with four other pastors of diverse racial, theological, and cultural backgrounds; offering and receiving support for the ministry of each pastor; sharing in the administration and management of all-church ministries and programs; and working together to communicate a shared vision for NSBC’s continuing mission and service.
The English Language Pastor will hold mutual accountability with other members of the pastoral team, and report to the Pastoral Relations Committee and the Church Council as supervising bodies. The pastor will attend Church Council meetings.
