Job Description:
Our Youth Ministry:
This church has a vision to reach children, teens and families with the gospel of Jesus Christ. It has demonstrated this vision by building a gymnasium and being the first church in this valley to call a full time youth pastor.
Although this youth ministry is fully supported by Fort Shaw Bible Church, it is attended by youth from various small churches up and down the Sun River Valley.
We desire to build a youth ministry that is well balanced between developing healthy human relationships through fun activities, and developing strong spiritual leaders for tomorrow through ministry. At this point in time, we need to connect our ministry with the unchurched families living in our valley.
Our ultimate goal is that our youth would have an ongoing relationship with Jesus Christ, as well as a good understanding of the Bible as they enter their adult years.

Candidate must have a personal commitment to Jesus Christ and a desire to do His work. We seek a loving, caring youth pastor who will encourage spiritual growth and be a positive Christian influence for our teens, families and community. The one we are praying for is a humble shepherd, a model of Godly character, who loves God, God’s Word, and has an enthusiasm for working with youth. Candidate must comply with our doctrinal statement of faith. His calling will require a background check.

The Fort Shaw Bible Church is an independent Bible believing church that will celebrate its 100 year anniversary next summer, by God’s grace. We are an evangelical church that has a congregational-rule form of government. An eight-member board of deacons meets monthly and quarterly business meetings are held where congregation members vote on issues brought before the assembly.
We operate on a debt free basis. The facility itself has undergone three additions/remodels in the past 20 years. The complex includes the following: a sanctuary that seats 180, 7-classrooms, a gymnasium, kitchen, nursery, library, office, restrooms, and several additional small rooms.
The church property includes a 4-bedroom parsonage with study, partial basement, shop, storage area, and one car garage, located one block from the church building. We hold title to a 38-passenger bus and 15-passenger van.
The people are a unified group, but have many demographic differences. Average weekly worship service attendance is 100-120. Sunday School attendance ranges from 65-90. Weekly Youth Group attendance ranges from 10- 30. We regularly support 15 missionaries at an average of approximately $400 per quarter, plus additional missionaries, bringing the amount of our missions giving over 25% of the church offerings.
