Cascade Bible Church
Assistant Pastor Ministry Posting
Cascade Bible Church (CBC) located in La Pine, Oregon is seeking to hire a
full-time Assistant Pastor (AP) to lead our music ministry and to lead our young marrieds and young singles to become disciples with a heart for God. The AP will lead singing during our Sunday morning congregation songs. He will lead our worship team in music
practice. He will lead Bible studies for young marrieds/young singles - those who are basically in their 20's and 30's. Therefore, we prefer that our AP be married. We are not requiring him to work with High School or Jr. High ages, but he may create a
ministry in that area if he desires.
The Assistant Pastor must be willing to commit to serve at Cascade Bible Church for at least one year. This commitment may be broken if CBC leaders unanimously agree
with the Assistant Pastor that unexpected and/or unavoidable circumstances have occurred. We are praying and will continue to pray that the AP desires a long-term ministry.
CBC began in homes in 1990, where we have continued to grow through the years. God has richly provided for our needs and we now fellowship in this facility on the corner of Burgess Road and Pine Drive. CBC is an independent, non-denominational assembly
of believers who choose to closely follow our Lord Jesus Christ.
Our Purpose is to do all to the glory of God. We seek to unite true believers in our Lord Jesus Christ through the day to day practice of worship, instruction and fellowship that results in a loving outreach with the gospel to the lost. Thus we are
(1) Exalt the Lord - To do all in order to glorify God (1 Corin.10:31).
(2) Equip the saints - To do everything in order to edify believers (1 Corin.14:26).
(3) Evangelize the lost - To do all we can in order to save some (1 Corin.9:19-23).
We have no formal membership or congregational voting, but we are made up of those believers who regularly fellowship with and participate in the activities of this Church. We follow the Lord Jesus Christ who has instructed local churches to be led
by elders. Elders (overseers) are appointed to their positions based on the character qualities that are found in 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:5-9.
La Pine is a rural community located in southern Deschutes County in Central Oregon near the Newberry Volcanic National Monument. At 4,235 feet, summers are warm and welcoming with abundant summer recreational activities with winter on the cooler
side making La Pine a winter wonderland for all types of snow-related activities.
