Job Description:

FBC Dallas is looking for a man to come alongside our Senior Pastor and help shepherd the people. This person will have opportunities to preach, teach, and disciple all the while equipping the saints for the work of the ministry. The main part of this position will be in the teaching and discipleship ministry.

The Discipleship Pastor will work closely with the Senior Pastor to implement an effective strategy to bring the Church into "perfection" (maturity). FBC Dallas has small groups by way of Sunday School  and the beginnings of home groups. The discipleship strategy is to develop from these groups even smaller D-groups that are closed, with high accountability and flooded with the Spiritual disciplines of Scripture study and memorization, prayer, confession, using gifts in ministry and evangelism. For more clarity please refer to  Growing Up by Robby Gallaty and The Lost Art of Discipleship Making by Leroy Eims.

Along with the overall ministry of Discipleship the Associate Pastor will help feed a fledgling college and career ministry in our nearby facility. The man for this position must be energetic, self starting, teachable, loving and flexible, willing to build God's kingdom with great passion and vision.

  • Highly organized to track small and discipleship groups.
  • Develop training throughout the church year for leaders.
  • Be able to Disciple men.
  • Be devoted to soul-winning and fulfilling the Great Commission.
  • Keep scheduled office hours and attend staff appointments and scheduled worship times.

  • Develop and work within a budget, being a steward of God's blessings.
  • Work closely with Outreach Leaders and Teams to place new converts into groups and seekers into investigative groups.
