Job Description:
                                                                                                        CIELO VISTA CHURCH
                                                                                                             EL PASO, TEXAS
             Cielo Vista Church was established sixty-three years ago by Johnny and Audrey Morgan as a Fundamental Baptist Church. From those early pioneering days our church has grown consistently over the last six decades because of the transforming power of Jesus. Today, Cielo Vista is a multi cultural, multi generational church family of 2000-2500 attendees in a community that is 90% Hispanic. We have changed with the culture without wavering in our commitment to the Truth of God’s inspired and perfect revealed Word. We believe that methods in ministry are constantly changing, but the message of ministry stays the same. We align well with ministries that are committed to the authority and perfectness of the Bible, celebratory in praise and worship, and honors the Body of Christ world-wide while knowing that various nuances will be different from church to church.  We do not align well with ministries that hold other Christ followers in contempt because of secondary theological issues that are parsed differently. Our enemies are not other followers of Jesus. Our enemy is Satan, who seeks disruptive division among Christ’s Church.

    • The Three C’s



      A common grid that is often used in the employment search are the three C’s:


      Character – Being a pastor of any size ministry can have the greatest impact for eternity with biblical character as the outflow of life. Words like integrity, truth, and above reproach match the person committed to godly character.


      Competence – This can be summed up like this: can this person do the work? Are they self initiators? Can they grow in life without constant oversight? Will they work through challenges without incessant blame and excuse making? Do they know how to set goals, measure goals, and reach goals while taking complete responsibility?


      Chemistry – The ability to mesh with others on a team, knowing that other personalities exist besides theirs? We think laughter in our hallways is a good thing. Ultra serious types would not be a chemistry fit, nor would a clown. A chemistry fit is someone who doesn’t take themselves too serious, but takes their work serious. They are someone who doesn’t mind serving others on the team.
