BACKGROUND
Cypress Bible Church (CBC) welcomes around 1000 worshippers to its 31 acre multi-building campus located twenty miles northwest of Houston, Texas.  In 2001 CBC completed construction of its newest building which houses a 1200 seat auditorium, a “Commons” foyer area, adult classrooms, and a 17 room early childhood wing.

The Cypress area is fast-growing, and multi-ethnic. It has much to offer with exemplary schools, the largest hospital system in the country, and a multitude of opportunities for children and teens to develop their interests.

Cypress Bible has had strength in Missions for many years, developing missionaries from within our church, currently supporting over 40 missionaries, with two couples in our development program. We send teams on short-term trips each year to places such as India, Nepal, NY City, Cuba, and Mexico. Over our 43 year history, we have planted three local churches in the Houston area.  Our local outreach efforts include adopting Lamkin Elementary school, neighborhood prayer walks, Vacation Bible School, Christmas Breakaway, a Spanish language ministry, and other on campus outreach events.

We produce lives changed by Christ as we Gather for life-changing worship, Grow through life-changing truth, and Go in life-changing mission.

 

The Opportunity
We are looking for a pastor to join our team who will be instrumental in moving our church forward in the priority of Going in Life-changing Mission. This will include leading our Local Outreach Team, organizing our church planting efforts, supporting our Global Missions Ministry, interfacing with our Hispanic Ministry Pastor, and connecting with other intentional efforts to bless the Cypress Community.

We desire to be a church and individual believers who engage in our community by actively building relationships with unbelievers, cultivating a good reputation, and speaking the good news of Jesus.

Through our global workers and short term mission teams, we are committed to spread the gospel to the ends of the earth, and we actively support and send many individuals and organizations worldwide.

This is a full-time position with benefits.

  • The Outreach Pastor will supervise the Hispanic Ministry Pastor, ensuring that our outreach efforts include partnering with the Spanish-language congregation.
