OUR MISSION: To connect people to Jesus, each other, and our community.


OUR CHURCH: The weekends at Bear Creek Community Church (BC) are designed with the whole family in mind and include inspiring contemporary worship, relevant biblical teaching, and age appropriate worship/teaching experiences for children and teens. When coming to BC one will find a friendly group of people committed to making church the adventurous, life-changing, Christ-centered movement, and community, it was (and is) intended to be.


Between two Sunday morning services BC ranges from 850-950 in average weekly attendance.


As a multigenerational and community-minded church, BC is committed to embracing multiple styles of music in order to best engage the mind, heart, & soul of every generation.


BC is well known throughout the community for its strong outreach programs and involvement in the community.


BC is in the middle of a thirty-six-month transition of senior leadership as the Founding Pastor (Bill Cummins) transitions from the front lines of ministry. Incoming Senior pastor (Paul Earwood) is thirty-five years old and brings new vision, energy, and leadership to an established, strong, healthy, financially-stable church.


OUR COMMUNITY: BC is strategically and centrally located between the cities of Lodi and Stockton, California in the heart of the beautiful San Joaquin Valley. Approximately half of the church members live in Stockton and half in Lodi. There is a four-mile-wide agricultural buffer that separates the two communities and the church is located in that area. This agricultural buffer is primed for new housing and work has already begun with hundreds of homes scheduled to be built in the next three to four years. BC is primed for growth!


POSITION: BC is looking for worship pastor whom desires to live for Jesus on and off the stage, lead in worship, serve the local church, recruit and build teams both spiritually and numerically, work under the vision of senior leadership in collaborative efforts while maintaining and improving levels of execution and excellence on a regular and ongoing basis.  The Worship Pastor at BC will be responsible for planning the Sunday morning worship experiences on a weekly basis.
