Job Type: Full-Time
Located in one fo the fastest growing cities in the US, Northeast Bible Church is a growing church of 800. NEBC is currently seeking a full time Pastor of Worship Arts. San Antonio was recently recognized by Career Builder.com as the tenth best place for new college graduates to work and live. Garden Ridge, itself has grown 25% since 2000, and is a city of approximately 3,500. The surrounding communities of Schertz, Cibolo, and New Braunfels have grown in like fashion, contributing greatly to the San Antonio-Austin corridor growth.
NEBC is in one of the fastest growing areas of the greater San Antonio area, and is a key position to minister to the surrounding community. Posturing the Church and developing the staff to meet the quickly-changing ministry needs of the community as the church continues to grow is the greatest challenge this church will face. As a result the church culture is growing younger creating a need to creatively engage the next generation of unbeliever, believer and leader with the gospel and kingdom mission.
Having a nearly 30 year history provides both foundational stability as well as need for continued cultural renewal to reach the next generation. The church as would be expected has been typically focused within for discipleship and programming. The future will involve leading this body outside the church walls to make a missional impact in the community. The new pastor and elder board are embarking on a journey to discover the unique vision call for NEBC into the future. This brings the excitement and challenge of change in an existing body of believers. The worship growth and transition will be an important yet delicate part of this process.
Due to its accessibility to Randolph AFB, about one-quarter of the attendees are military members who want to plug in quickly and get involved in ministry. With the military rotations, the church is re-vitalized each year as military leave and new military members transition in. The attendees range from young to old, with most of the couples in the church being young (25-40 years old) with two to three children. This makes for a fast-paced, exciting ministry environment. The church transitioned its worship from traditional hymn style toward a blend of hymns and new music about 4 years ago. The plan is to take another step closer to a contemporary style seeking to balance engagement of both the heart and mind in the worship experience. A key value that will influence this process is a missional heart for the community around us.
