First Baptist Church of St. Johns exists to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ by exalting Him in worship, evangelizing the lost in the community and around the world, edifying believers through the ministry of the Word, and equipping the saints for the work of service. With a 161-year rich legacy of ministry, St. Johns continues to be a thriving entity that impacts its region locally, and in both national and international capacities.

The Pastor of Worship and Technology is first and foremost a pastor; an individual with a desire to teach, preach, lead and shepherd God's flock in the local church. The ideal candidate will possess a heart for worship, with proven experience in music and leading congregational singing, while being largely responsible for steering and setting the tone for the worship ministry of the church. This individual will be self-motivated, with a desire to seek constant improvement and excellence in all areas of responsibility.

This individual’s work ethic will speak to their preparation, musicianship, and highly effective execution of Sunday morning programming. The candidate will possess a vast knowledge in music and blended worship, with familiarity in the fine arts and tech ministry areas. The ideal candidate for the position will have a gentle pastoral demeanor that complements the skills needed to successfully fulfill the responsibilities of the role.

The City of St. Johns is located about 20 miles north of the state capital of Lansing, in Michigan. St. Johns is surrounded by some of the finest farmland in the state and had the distinction of being the "Mint Capital of the World" for nearly a century, thus earning the nickname of Mint City USA. Vibrant downtowns reflect the heritage and civic pride of the community, and are critical to attracting industry, investment, and visitors to an area. As the traditional heart and hub of government, commerce, justice, and social interaction, the downtown business district plays a crucial role in the overall image of a community.

CrossBridge Community Church, San Antonio, TX

Established in 2003, CrossBridge Community Church in north San Antonio, TX seeks a full-time Children’s Pastor to oversee a staff of four who together equip and encourage parents to become disciple makers of the 300 children within this body of believers.

Just under a thousand gather for Sunday morning services where worshippers hold firmly to the Bible as God's Word and look expectantly for the Holy Spirit to teach and empower them to love God, love others, and to go and make disciples of all nations.

Additionally, building teams of children's ministry servant leaders is essential to support families in discipling their children to follow Jesus. Programming is significant as it provides 1) encouragement for parents to become the primary disciple makers in their children’s lives, (2) environments for children to build friendships with others within the church family, and (3) a culture encouraging each child to know they are loved by God and that he desires a personal relationship with each of them.

The successful candidate should have a Bachelor’s degree (education or ministry related preferred), and a minimum of two years experience overseeing a children’s ministry, preferably in a large church. Candidates should demonstrate strong leadership, communication and relationship building skills.  Please send resumes to Apply@crossbridgecommunitychurch.com
