Associate Pastor of Worship and Discipleship Full Time
First Baptist Church MiamisburgActive
Associate Pastor of Worship and Discipleship
First Baptist Miamisburg is a warm and faithful church in a suburb of Dayton, Ohio in the midst of revitalization. Post-covid, we average one hundred in worship and are primed to experience multi-generational growth. We are deeply committed to being a church that proclaims the clear Gospel of Jesus Christ via expositional, doctrinal, and Christ-centered preaching. We are marked by deep discipleship, bold prayer, passionate worship, constant evangelism, and urgent missions. We are now seeking a new full time, associate pastor of worship and discipleship.
Our new associate pastor will join our senior pastor to form a pastoral team to serve the adults, families, and children of the church in a variety of ways. Specific responsibilities will depend on that person’s unique gifts and skills, but the primary focuses will be to lead our worship ministry and to oversee our discipleship ministries to our children, youth, and young adults.
Our new associate pastor must be first and foremost a man of God called to the role of shepherd and desiring the office. He must personally attest to his fittingness to the biblical requirements for the office of pastor/elder/overseer as reflected in Acts 20:28-32, 1 Timothy 3:1-7, Titus 1:5-9, and 1 Peter 5:1-4. He must also have others who can enthusiastically affirm his calling, his character, and his conduct. As the ability to teach is one of the key distinctions between the pastorate office and the diaconate office, he must have ample evidence of time devoted to such preparation as reflected in his education and experience. He must have giftings and skills for the leading of others in the worship of the Lord. Preference is for him to be able to play both guitar and piano. He must also have giftings and skills for the discipling of others, with experience in working with youth and young adults.
The primary responsibilities of our associate pastor will include three distinct areas: 1) Overseeing the worship ministry, 2) Overseeing the discipleship ministries to our children, youth, and young adults, and 3) Supporting the ministry of the lead pastor.
1) Overseeing the worship ministry: (45%) Our associate pastor will plan together with the senior pastor the worship services of our church and shepherd the church through the music ministry. He will lead the worship team and tech teams for the church.
2) Overseeing the discipleship ministries to our children, youth, and young adults: (45%) While not expected to give detailed, day-to-day ownership of all the activities of these ministries, our associate pastor will exercise general oversight in both youth and children’s ministries seeking the growth and health of young disciples of Jesus. This can include providing spiritual care for the lay leaders in these ministries, helping plan future ministry events, teaching Sunday schools, and participating in events like camp or retreats.
3) Miscellaneous duties in support of the senior pastor: (10%) Our associate pastor will be a regular part of the teaching ministries of the church, actively involved in the weekly services, and available to serve in the senior pastor’s absence for any duty which is deemed needed.
