Job Description:

What is the “Powerhouse”? The Powerhouse would be a community that would lead New Heights Baptist Church to connect with young adults by sharing Christ’s love through serving Pueblo. This is a search and rescue effort.

Church Profile:
New Heights Baptist Church is located in Pueblo, Colorado in clear view of the Rocky Mountains and stunning high-elevation skies. Our church seeks to deepen community as we love God and love others. During the fifteen years that Dave Grossmann has been pastor we have seen some strides in that direction. We would like to see the Powerhouse accelerate those strides. The church family is friendly and caring, with several active small groups and Bible studies. The senior pastor (Dave Grossmann) is committed to mentor the powerhouse pastor yet give plenty of space for growth and development.

Primary Function:
Energize young adults into giving themselves away to find themselves. (Luke 9:24-25)
Secondary Function: Lead the church praise team.

Responsibilities (20 hours/week):
Coordinate the Powerhouse by connecting with young adults, planning together about how to share God's love through serving, and then serving in fellowship.
Keep the senior pastor and church in the informed as to how they can work as a team.
Assist New Heights in receiving new folks as they come. Such assistance could include (depending on spiritual gifts and interests): Discipleship, preaching opportunities, prayer, worship leadership in music, & service projects.
Community involvement by working in the labor force part-time to make the every-day type of contacts and also to make money to help pay your personal bills. (Can be modified according to personal finances.)
Plan with the senior pastor and lead creative Sunday morning worship services.
Empower the worship team(s).

A follower of Christ who lives with integrity
A team player and a team builder
Possesses gifts of leadership and administration
Able to connect with young adults and families
Talented musically with strengths in singing and at least one accompanying instrument (guitar preferred, could also be keyboard or piano)

This ministry may be great for you if:
You are looking for hands-on experience for a couple of years (or perhaps longer)
You love to build community (a touch of heaven)
You are a recent graduate looking to get into ministry and/or have fresh ideas to explorer with the community
You excel in leading others to worship God through music

This ministry may not be so great for you if:
You are a seasoned ministry veteran looking for a change of scenery
You have heavy debts (it’s part-time after all)
You are tired in your current ministry and the idea of leading is unappealing to you
You expect a stable church to change too fast
