Job Description:


Title: Care Pastor

Status: Full-time

Reports to: Scott Harrop


Description: As Sagebrush continues to grow, the need for more pastoral care also increases. Every week, people walk into our church looking for a pastor to speak with, people call needing a visit at the hospital, and families go through the joys of a wedding and the grief of a funeral.


Though we have a pastor on call (POC) rotation where our staff pastors share the load of the care needs, we recognize the need for one consistent leader who can oversee the pastoral care needs of our church, partner weekly with the POC pastor, and maintain our ministry systems so no one falls through the cracks.



Key Duties:

  1. Oversee all follow-up from communication card from the weekend service (1 & 2) and set meetings with each person.
  2. Oversee all aspects of the pastoral care and POC ministries at Sagebrush.
  3. Provide weekly pastoral care to attendees of Sagebrush including hospital visits, benevolence assistance, weddings, funerals, and walk-in triage counseling.
  4. Update and offer training to all new POC pastors on the rotation team.
  5. Plan the POC rotation for a minimum of 8 weeks out and notify POCs.
  6. Ensure that a weekly partnering POC is available for walk-ins when out on hospital or care visits.
  7. Offer referrals to those who, after being met with, are in need of professional help.
  8. Oversee the hospital update board and ensure all info is up-to-date.
  9. Ensure POCs are using Fellowship One correctly and managing the POC contacts.

10. Provide a weekly update for the PMT and receptionists on pastoral care details for the week including those currently in the hospital and those at home who need care.

11. Any other duties as assigned by the Pastoral Management Team.
