Job Description:

THE CHURCH - First Evangelical Free Church - Wichita, Kansas


"First Free" is about one thing - making disciples of Jesus Christ who glorify God as the grace of the gospel grows deep in God's people and goes wide to all peoples.  That is what Jesus called his disciples to in Matthew 28, and we believe all of us have been called to join that mission.  The expression of this truth is palpable when sitting in just one weekend service at First Free.  The worship time is God-honoring, centered around traditional hymns presented in a contemporary way.  The heart of this church is historic and rich; a majority of the staff grew up in the church and were discipled and developed here.  The fact that the external focus of the church—from unreached people groups to local partnerships—comprises almost a fourth of its budget, is just one way in which First Free lives out it’s mission – action, not just talk. Expository preaching is a high value amongst the leadership and congregation.

 

THE POSITION

 

The role of Executive Pastor is one that will strengthen and support every ongoing ministry First Free is involved in. Shepherding an incredibly united staff is just one of the important components in this role. Organizational Management and a Shepherding Heart ranked highest amongst the skills/gifts presented in AGORA’s online survey filled out by the First Free Leadership and Search Team. A relational fit is extremely important to the success of this servant-leader role.
