>Thank you for your interest in being a part of what God is doing in and through Bayview Glen Church!
We’re eager to meet people who have a growing relationship with God and a desire to impact the world with the love and message of Jesus Christ.
Accepting a position of employment at Bayview Glen means you share our commitment to living a life that reflects our Mission and Core Values. This commitment must be based on the firm conviction that no matter what role a person plays on our staff, integrity is essential. Those we serve must see a consistency in our faith and how we express that faith in our daily lives and in our service together. In other words, “how” we live and serve is as important as “what” we do in our individual roles and responsibilities. Consequently, Bayview Glen employees have a great responsibility to be examples to one another, to our church family, and to the world. This means at minimum, if hired, you would make Bayview Glen your church home, the place where you worship and serve.
If you are able to make these commitments, we encourage you to continue with the employment application. If you are not able to do so at this time, we encourage you to explore the many other ways you can connect, grow and serve at Bayview Glen Church! Go to www.bayviewglen.org to learn more.
