The short version:
We are looking for a motivated leader for the position of Student Ministries Pastor. The pastor who will serve in this position must be team oriented, fully supportive of the vision, purpose, and current staff of Freshwater. They must have the heart and ability to reach students for Christ, connect them with other students, help them grow in their faith, discover their unique gifts and honor God with their life.

About Freshwater:
Freshwater Community Church of the Christian and Missionary Alliance (Freshwater) began in April of 1999. Over the past 11 years we have grown from a launch team of 6 to over 600 with a wide variety of ministries. We have moved three times and currently reside in an 18,000 sq ft warehouse that sits on 2.5 acres of land. Freshwater has been directly involved in five church plants and desires to start a sixth.

The St. Boni community is nestled in the western most part of the Minneapolis metro area just west of Minnetonka. Over the past 10 years St. Bonifacius has doubled in size and has transitioned from a mostly rural mentality to a very suburban beat. Since opening in 1999 we have seen over 250 new conversions or recommitments, and baptized around 140 people. Our current budget for 2010 is roughly $700,000. The worship style is cutting edge and is performed by a variety of incredibly talented musicians.

The people at Freshwater are willing to try just about anything in order to reach people for Christ, help them grow in their faith, discover their ministry and honor God with their life. The dress is casual and people come because they want to not because they have to. The median age is around 35. Check out our web site for a virtual tour and for just about anything else.
