The Administrative Pastor position at Faith Bible Church has a dual focus with responsibilities both in pastoral shepherding and managing teams and daily operations. It is anticipated that about 60-70 percent of his time will be spent on pastoral opportunities, and the remainder on operations activities. He must be an elder-qualified man as defined by scripture (Titus 1).
He is a member of the Elder Council and serves on the Leadership Team with the Teaching Pastor and Body Life Pastor. He is a faithful steward of God's ministry and fully dedicated to prayer for both believers and the lost. He is personally active in the equipping of the saints to do the work of the church. He is an effective and bold teacher of the Word publicly in corporate worship gatherings, in small group settings, and one-on-one. He is willing and able to both encourage and reprove the body based on the Word. The Administrative Pastor engages with other ministry leaders to provide member care for those with spiritual, physical, or emotional needs. He actively seeks the wisdom of other mature believers, is an encourager of new believers, and mentors those who may someday be called to formal ministry roles. He is a guardian of the truths of the Word and a staunch opponent of false doctrines and false teaching.
As the primary overseer of operations and administration at the church, the Administrative Pastor must have the gift to team lead the managing responsibility for financial stewardship, facility and grounds, Human Resources, ministry leaders, and administrative staff.
