Kingwood Bible Church is an independent Bible church. We are evangelical, Free Grace, and noncharismatic.
As evangelicals we emphasize salvation by faith in the atoning death of Jesus Christ through personal conversion, the authority of scripture, and the importance of preaching as contrasted with ritual.
As Free Grace proponents, we believe that the one condition for salvation is belief. We are not saved by works, by repentance, by reformation, or by commitment. Assurance of salvation is based on faith, not fruit, and is the birthright of every born again believer. Because we are free grace, we extend grace to others in all that we do and say. Free Grace proponents include Charles Swindoll, Charles Stanley, Andy Stanley, Charles Ryrie, Zane Hodges, Bob Wilkin, Joseph Dillow. The view to which we do not subscribe is spearheaded by John Piper, John MacArthur, R. C. Sproul, Louis Giglio.
As noncharismatics, we believe the mira us sign gifts (tongues, interpretation, miracles, healings) died away with the apostolic generation. We are not anticharismatic or charismatic bashers.
The Youth & Worship Pastor (YP/WP) is to provide overall leadership and personal ministry involvement to youth, both middle school through senior high age groups. Ministries shall be age-defined and involve various purposes within each age-group (i.e., outreach, worship, fellowship, discipleship and ministry). The ministry should be highly motivating for youth and offer opportunities for the personal and spiritual development of youth that parents enthusiastically endorse.
As WP he will be responsible for the contemporary worship service, including the selection of songs, supervision and training of sound techs, and the recruiting and training of worship band, vocalists, and soloists. He should be able to lead worship (from piano, guitar, or keyboard) and arrange music or prepare charts.
Kingwood is a delightful town of 80,000 northeast of Houston. Kingwood is called the Livable Forest because it is a heavily wooded, masterplanned community with 78 miles of greenbelt trails. It is family friendly and safe.
You’ll find great restaurants (Chinese, Tex Mex, Italian, French, steak, BarBQ, seafood, and even Cajun). Great shop bounds with a mall just 15 minutes away. Entertainment abounds with a 24 screen AMC at the mall. Kingwood is situated on the shores of Lake Houston, a paradise for boaters, jet skiers, and fishermen. Kingwood Country Club is the largest country club in America with five 18 hole golf courses. The Kevin Costner movie, Tin Cup, was filmed here. Four public courses are in and around Kingwood. Kingwood has numerous health clubs. Houston is 30 minutes away offering pro sports and cultural arts. The Gulf Coast beaches are one hour away.
Health care is excellent with two hospitals. If you need world class health care, we’ve got it at the Texas Medical Center in downtown Houston. Texas Children’s Hospital is amazing. M.D. Anderson is one of the best in the world for cancer treatment.
The cost of living is low in Texas. We have no state income tax. Housing costs are soooo low. (Go to kw.com and search.) You can get a house as cheap 90K or as expensive 2 million. You will be able to live within minutes of the church. Each subdivision has its own large pool and swim team. Kingwood swimming is a big deal.
We have 2 high schools in Kingwood and there are two more across the lake that are also part of the Humble Independent School District. The schools are top flight. At Kingwood High, the 300 member marching band and several athletic teams are renowned. Half of all the juniors and seniors take dual credit courses at our local junior college so that a kid can enter college with 12 or more credit hours. There is also a Christian academy in town. A few families at KBC home school.
If you wish to get a theological education, several seminaries are nearby (Dallas Theological Seminary extension campus on the west side of downtown Houston, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary extension campus in southeast Houston, and Grace School of Theology in The Woodlands). The church will pay $2000 in tuition and books a year.
Most people commute to Houston. Many work in the petrochemical field (Exxon, Shell, Chevron) and quite a few work for airlines because we are 20 minutes from Houston Intercontinental Airport. The median income is $102,000. The educational level is high, with 16% of the people possessing graduate or professional degrees.
The demographics are Asian - 2.5%, Black - 3.8%, Hispanic - 7.8%, White - 89.8%, Other - 3.9%.
If you are interested, respond with your resume and attach a recent picture. If married, include a pic of your wife. Include a video or DVD or link to a youtube of you playing and singing. Do something fast and something slow. Better yet, send an entire worship service.
