Job Description:

Vision for University Ministry: Emmanuel Baptist Church, located in Pullman, WA, is seeking a University Pastor. Currently our church is made of up of mostly young families with children, with some students attending (40-60). Within a ten mile radius of our church, there are 55,000 people, with 33,000 of those being university students. Only around 10% of those students are attending an evangelical church. Our vision is to find a leader for university students who can develop a ministry to reach students for Christ, disciple students, equip students to serve within the context of the church and in the community, and challenge them to be involved in missions (in our area and around the world).


We feel that if a person has the passion to reach college students this ministry can easily flourish within the context of our church family. The church staff is looking forward to working with someone who can provide the necessary leadership to reach students and challenge our church to engage the university community.

Initially, we are able to fund this position for half-time, but our goal is for this to be a full-time paid position as quickly as possible.  With such great potential, we feel that as the ministry grows, the church family will respond with generous giving to insure this position is full-time. Another option we would consider is for someone to raise half the support so that they could begin with full-time funding.
