What We Are Searching For

Redeemer Bible Church is a church that loves God and loves others. We have been able to bless many missionaries financially through the generous support of our congregation. We anticipate that our next Senior Pastor will be passionate about seeking the lost in our community, building and equipping believers, passionate about the Word and its proclamation, and evangelism both locally and beyond our borders. Our new Senior Pastor will be someone with specific strategies that will equip and empower our own members as we seek to build His Kingdom.

You are a 'big-picture' guy that is driven to finish what you start and have a strong need for closure in decision-making. You are stimulated by considering new ideas and possibilities as you approach situations. You prefer to clearly plan through all steps of a situation ahead of time, in a proactive manner. You have the ability to be flexible in nature, shifting between tasks as needs arise. Your expression for the love of God, driven by the Holy Spirit, leads you to take a more relational approach to situations.

You are an 'ideas' person who is energized by working with others and open to new approaches aimed at achieving a goal. Despite your relational nature, you are group orientated and possess a collaborative spirit, stressing needs of the group ahead of an individual. As our new Pastor, you are able to recognize existing ministries that are functioning well, discern those that are struggling and offer ideas to improve them, all of which will result in furthering God's Kingdom. You will also be able to conceptualize ideas that would lead to new expressions of ministry.

In your role as primary leader, you will build a strong team and together you will discern the ministry direction God is calling you to at Redeemer Bible Church. Your gifts facilitate building unity that aligns with the church’s vision, achieving consensus through reason and implementing actions toward pre-determined goals. We are seeking a gifted speaker and teacher of the Word who articulates Biblical truth clearly, in a dynamic manner. You have the ability to present the Gospel message to non and new believers, as well as preaching the Scriptures in an exegetical manner to more mature Christians. You are as effective in teaching small groups, as you are in preaching in a large corporate setting. 

You are a people-oriented leader, who is comfortable interacting with individuals or groups, both inside and outside our walls. By embracing our church’s mission of 'Leading People To Passionately Follow Jesus', you will discern the steps necessary to promote the ministry vision of Redeemer Bible Church.

The proposed starting date is December 1, 2020, but commencing earlier or later may be negotiable. Salary and benefits will be discussed with candidates who are selected to move forward in a hiring process.
