Pastor of Adult Ministries – Columbus, IN March 12, 2009

Filed under: Adult Ministries,Columbus,Full Time,Indiana,Pastor — atsjobopenings @ 2:23 pm

Community Church of Columbus is an interdenominational church with approximately 1,200 in worship on Sundays.  Our statement of faith would be very similar to any interdenominational ministry such as Focus on the Family or Campus Crusade for Christ.

Probably the strongest spiritual gift we are looking for is administration, but also needing someone with some teaching and preaching skills.  We are a fairly informal body of believers, and strong relationships are evident throughout the church.  The person will need to have the ability to build strong relationships with key leaders in the areas mentioned in the job description.  This is position is not for the faint at heart!  Our church has grown significantly, and shows little sign of slowing down, so we need someone who has the energy to match the growth.

More information about the church can be obtained by visiting:

Title: Pastor of Adult Ministries

Additional Responsibilities:

1. The Pastor of Adult Ministries will also be responsible for preaching duties at various times throughout the year.

2. A close working relationship with our Director of Counseling and Community is expected as many of the programs will be interrelated.

3. Participation in worship services on a regular basis is expected.

4. Assist with other pastoral duties when needed.


1. A master’s degree from an accredited university, preferably with an emphasis in ministry.

2. Strong communication and organizational skills to oversee several different areas.

3. A willingness for ongoing education and training for various ministries.

4. A commitment to the concept of team ministry, both among the paid staff of the church as well as the coordinated volunteer groups in the church.
