In 1933, as the westward expansion of Houston was pushing toward the Spring Branch area, several key leaders envisioned a church that would embrace the needs and opportunities of the growing community. Since its beginnings, Bridgepoint Bible Church has experienced “God-sized” steps during their process of growth over the years. Today, it is strategically located in Houston, Texas that boasts a thriving oil business. At the center of the oil business is an area of town known as the Energy Corridor and at the center of the Energy Corridor is BridgePoint Bible Church. Sitting, not only at the crossroads of the city, but of the very world, BridgePoint is positioned and passionate, to make a regional, global and eternal difference with the life-changing reality of Jesus Christ. 


Believing that to whom much is given much is expected, the BridgePoint family is eager to see the full realization of the Lord’s purpose for their church. On the front end of a new season, BridgePoint seeks a new Senior Pastor that will help them sharpen their vision and lead the way toward fulfilling God’s purpose for placing them in its strategic place.


The next Senior Pastor will help the BridgePoint community pursue fulfillment of the BridgePoint vision by working closely with the Administrative Board and other staff in the development, implementation, and evaluation of ministry plans relative to the vision, serving as the principal preacher, managing/encouraging the professional ministry staff, and shepherding the congregation. The Senior Pastor will participate as an active member of the BridgePoint staff team and will coordinate his activities with the overarching vision, mission, and values of BridgePoint Bible Church. 


In fulfilling the objective of the position, the Senior Pastor is expected to help the BridgePoint body pursue fulfillment of the BridgePoint vision in the following ways:


Clarify the Vision:             by helping us choose our goals and objectives clearly.

Cast the Vision:                by inspiring the congregation to join in with these goals.

Keep the Vision:               by insuring that the church doesn’t become distracted or off-course.

Implement the Vision:       by creatively developing and executing programs and activities that achieve the goals.

Cultivate Leadership:        by developing and deploying both staff and volunteer leaders to implement the vision.

Teach Biblical Truth:         to transform lives and make disciples


Biblical literacy and a strong understanding of systematic theology with the ability to speak into doctrine are imperative in this role. A Master of Divinity degree is preferred.
