  5. Meet the qualifications for pastoral leadership as described in 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1.
  6. Strong teaching ability—able to teach the Bible in engaging, creative ways.
  7. College degree preferred.  However, experience and “your heart” are more important.
  8. Experience with Fellowship One helpful (but not required).
  9. General computer literacy.  Must be able to write effective emails, documents, etc.
  10. Must be positive, friendly.
  11. Maintain a high level of confidentiality. Be congenial, professional, business-­like in all personal contacts with others.

  14. Maintain a high level of excellence in your appearance, work habits and quality of work performed.

NOTE:  If you live in the North Texas area, you are not required to move. We spend more time working remotely than at the church’s facility. You will be provided with a computer and other tools you may need in order to work remotely.

 

Friendship Church is located in a small North Texas town, but we are a multi-county church.  People from Montague, Cooke, Grayson, and Denton counties attend. Think area-centric, not town-centric.  This reality gives us great opportunities to reach people!
