Associate Pastor of Evangelism

Job type: Full-time

Category: Associate/Executive Pastor

Location: Neenah, WI Post Date: October 23, 2017

Overview

The vision of Calvary Bible Church (www.cbcneenah.org) is "Making Disciples Together." God has called us to make disciples together in four specific spheres: in our homes, in the church, among our neighbors, and around the world. In order to help implement this vision, CBC is looking to hire a full-time Associate Pastor of Evangelism (PE). The PE will provide strategic leadership for the part of our vision that involves making disciples together "among our neighbors" and "around the world."

Our previous Pastor of Evangelism retired recently, leaving behind an organized team of committed volunteers who provide leadership for CBC's missions program. The next PE will be able to provide fresh leadership to that missions program and will be tasked with developing a team to lead and train the church in local evangelism.

Located in Neenah, WI, CBC was established over 80 years ago. Since then, the church has grown into a welcoming, multi-generational congregation of about 1,400 people. CBC is an elder-led, non-denominational evangelical church. (Neenah is part of the Fox River Valley, which is home to approximately 350,000 people.) CBC has a wide variety of ministries, including local outreach, children's, youth, women's, men's, and a K-8 Christian school (Fox Valley Christian Academy). CBC has a rich history of Christ-centered biblical preaching, love and desire for relationships, and a passion for missions. Today the church supports more than 35 missionaries, who serve around the world. CBC is currently debt-free and is in the preliminary stages of a possible expansion project.
