First Baptist Church
Mulvane, Kansas, United States
Date Posted: 02/23/2009
Categories: Worship Pastor
Denominations: Baptist --SBC
Church Size: 251 to 350
Job Type: Full-Time
FBC Mulvane is a growing and transitioning church, in a great community outside of Wichita KS. Mulvane is a town of roughly 7,000 people, and is full of young families. Our town is primarily residential, and most people work and shop in the Wichita area.
FBC is not a strictly traditional "first baptist church." We sit on the border between the "Bible belt" and frontier ministry. The church has a rich history of international missions involvement. Recent staff tenures have been long and healthy (pastor 20 years, youth pastor 15 years, worship pastor 17 years). The church is debt free and healthy financially. Big challenges facing us include completing our staff (worship and children pastors), finding stability in worship, development of community ministry, as well as an improved discipleship process.
Our music style can be called blended, but has leaned towards traditional in the past. However, we are now moving in a new direction as we strive to better reflect the voice of our community. During this interim period we are transitioning from music lead only by piano and organ, to a fuller instrumentation. As we move towards a new musical style, we are striving to remain true to our traditions and roots while being "progressive" at the same time. We have chosen not to split our church into two different music styles, and believe we can keep the church united in worship with the direction we're going.
A full job description is in the works. Minimum responsibilities include leading two worship services on Sunday mornings, as well as choir and instrumental rehearsals on a weekly basis. The person who will fit our church well will have a sincere walk with the Lord, passion, energy, be a contributor, relational, and have a clear vision of where we're going. Loners, sensitive types, and big egos will not fit well with our people.
Please send resumes to the email address on this page. We will follow up with requests for media at a later date. Feel free to call if you would like more informaiton about the church and the direction we're going.
