Kingwood Bible Church in Kingwood, TX (northeast Houston suburb) is looking for a fulltime Youth Pastor. The candidate will be high-energy and able to connect to both churched and unchurched youth. Ability to plan and execute excellent outreach events is a must. Must be a great communicator. Proven track record of growing a youth group. Give us some quantitative results in your resumes. Every youth pastor in America has the same routine...plans stuff, teaches stuff, etc. Whatever happened to results?! Tell us about your track record. Don't send us a one-size-fits-all resume. Tell us what we need to know. Tell us why we should hire you.
Kingwood Bible Church is an independent Bible church. We are evangelical, Free Grace, and noncharismatic.
As evangelicals we emphasize salvation by faith in the atoning death of Jesus Christ through personal conversion, the authority of scripture, and the importance of preaching as contrasted with ritual.
As Free Grace proponents, we believe that the one condition for salvation is belief. We are not saved by works, by repentance, by reformation, or by commitment. Assurance of salvation is based on faith, not fruit, and is the birthright of every born again believer. Because we are free grace, we extend grace to others in all that we do and say. Free Grace proponents include Charles Swindoll, Charles Stanley, Andy Stanley, Charles Ryrie, Zane Hodges, Bob Wilkin, Joseph Dillow. The view to which we do not subscribe is spearheaded by John Piper, John MacArthur, R. C. Sproul, Louis Giglio.
As noncharismatics, we believe the miraculous sign gifts (tongues, interpretation, miracles, healings) died away with the apostolic generation. We are not anticharismatic or charismatic bashers.
KBC is a hugging church, very loving and caring. Our $3.5 million dollar church plant is a gymnasium auditorium with a seating capacity for 250. We have an excess of space for offices, education, and parking, so there is room to grow and we average 240 people in two services, a contemporary service at 8:30am and a traditional service at 11:00am. We are nearly debt free.
Kingwood is a delightful town of 80,000 northeast of Houston. Kingwood is called the Livable Forest because it is a heavily wooded, masterplanned community with 78 miles of greenbelt trails. It is family friendly and safe.
You’ll find great restaurants (Chinese, Tex Mex, Italian, French, steak, BarBQ, seafood, and even Cajun). Great shopping abounds with a mall just 15 minutes away. Entertainment abounds with a 24 screen AMC at the mall and another movie theater under construction in town. Kingwood is situated on the shores of Lake Houston, a paradise for boaters, jet skiers, and fishermen. Kingwood Country Club is the largest country club in America with five 18 hole golf courses. The Kevin Costner movie, Tin Cup, was filmed here. Four public courses are in and around Kingwood. Kingwood has numerous health clubs. Houston is 30 minutes away offering pro sports and cultural arts. The Gulf Coast beaches are one hour away.
We have 2 high schools in Kingwood and there are three more across the lake that are also part of the Humble Independent School District. The schools are top flight. At Kingwood High, the 300 member marching band and several athletic teams are renowned. Half of all the juniors and seniors take dual credit courses at our local junior college so that a kid can enter college with 12 or more credit hours. There is also a Christian academy in town. Several families at KBC home school.
Most people commute to Houston. Many work in the petrochemical field (Exxon, Shell, Chevron) and quite a few work for airlines because we are 20 minutes from Houston Intercontinental Airport. The median income is $102,000. The educational level is high, with 16% of the people possessing graduate or professional degrees.
The demographics are Asian - 2.5%, Black - 3.8%, Hispanic - 7.8%, White - 89.8%, Other - 3.9%.
For the youth ministry, we do not expect you to do all the ministry; we expect you to direct and motivate the current volunteer team to help you make disciples of young people.
We have 40 students (middle school and high school combined). We have three aspects to the program: Sunday School (segregating middle school and senior high), Wednesday night event called FrontLine which is worship and a short talk for all youth combined, and a Sunday night social that meets in homes.
Salary is $40-45K, plus medical, mileage reimbursement, conference time and money, $37 for cell phone, 2-4 weeks of vacation depending on experience. Church provides matching funds for a 403(b) retirement plan after one year of service.
