About the Organization:

In the late 60’s, a group of students at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville were inspired with a vision for a new kind of church. This band of friends believed that God had given them a vision for doing something spectacular in the name of Christ. From the start, Fellowship Bible Church has been more than just a place or another church; it is a community of people following Jesus together as they take His message to a city they love and to a world that needs it.

In 2004, Fellowship Benton was launched as a campus of Fellowship Bible Church, joining the Little Rock campus. In 2007, Fellowship further expanded and established its third campus in Cabot—a campus community known for its authenticity, inclusivity, strength of staff, and unique culture.

Situated in different communities, each campus has its own pastoral staff, ministries, and feel, but the campuses are united as one family with one mission. On most Sunday mornings, all campuses experience the same biblical teaching using a mixture of live and video teaching from the Fellowship team of pastors, which enables them to reach into their different communities with the same hope.


  • Weekly Attendance: 6,000 (Cabot Campus 700)

About the Position:

Lead and oversee the Campus Ministry of the Cabot Campus at Fellowship Bible Church. This position will provide live teaching approximately 20+ times a year and be responsible for vision execution and task management. The ideal candidate for this role will have the leadership propensity to grow the campus to reach its maximum potential both in numbers and in depth, as ultimately, their leadership will be paramount to the success of the Cabot Campus of Fellowship Bible Church. This individual will additionally have the capacity to offer sound input into executive level decisions, with influence over the direction of the Cabot Campus.

The successful candidate will be both a communicator and an administrator. They will be passionate, relational, capable, courageous, principled, discerning, and collaborative as each goal and expectation of the role is accomplished. This person will also be able to function best when offered autonomy, and ‘hands off’ supervision.

What We Are Searching For:

  • Builder of Effective Teams – Values collaboration with others; creates strong moral and spirit; shares wins and successes; fosters open dialogue; defines success in terms of the whole team; creates a feeling of belonging in the team.
  • A Loyal Follower– Committed to Fellowship’s DNA and able to follow church leadership.
  • An Excellent Communicator – Can teach God’s truth in a way that leads to life application/transformation.
  • A Dynamic Leader – Communicates a compelling and inspired vision or sense of core purpose; talks beyond today; talks about possibilities; is optimistic; can inspire and motivate.
  • A Problem-Solver – Uses logic and methods to solve problem with effective solutions; probes all fruitful sources for answers; is excellent at honest analysis; looks beyond the obvious and doesn’t stop at the first answer.
  • A Self-Starter & Self-motivator – Initiates well without a lot of direction.
  • One who is Interpersonal Savvy – Relates well to all kinds of people – up, down, and sideways, inside and outside the church; builds appropriate rapport; builds constructive and effective relations; uses diplomacy and tact.
  • One with Self-Knowledge – Knows personal strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and limits; seeks feedback; gains insights from mistakes; is open to criticism; isn’t defensive; is receptive to taking about shortcomings.


A Master of Divinity degree is strongly preferred.

Alternatively, the candidate may have 10 years of ministry experience, in lieu of the educational requirement. If the individual fits this qualification, accompanying theological education alongside ministry experience will be required. Furthermore, a person with a history of multisite experience will be a plus.

Ideally, this individual would have previously been at least an Associate Pastor in a medium-large church, or a Senior Pastor of a church of 500+ in attendance. The successful candidate for this role will be a gifted communicator, a dynamic preacher, and visionary, and a pastor-relator in nature.
