Christ the King Community Church, International (CTK), has garnered national attention as a pioneer in the Multi-Site Church movement. Lead Pastor Dave Browning’s book “Deliberate Simplicity” sets out CTK’s unique blend of refreshing simplicity and dogged determination to “keep the main thing the main thing”. CTK Coupeville is part of the CTK International network, with sister congregations throughout the region of Northwest Washington and around the world. Therefore the Pastor of CTK Coupeville, though called to lead the congregation in Coupeville, joins a network of pastors who are friends and partners in the mission of CTK.
CTK Coupeville is seeking an engaging, relational pastor with the heart of an evangelist. This person must possess the ability and personality to relate to non-believers, spiritual seekers, and disciples of Jesus in a non-judgmental way while pointing people onward in their spiritual journey. A heart for reaching the next generation is a high priority.
Wholehearted support of the mission and values of CTK should be easily demonstrated in the lifestyle of the successful candidate.
Christ the King Community Church – Coupeville, WA
Provide pastoral leadership for CTK Coupeville.
The vision for this position is to have a person join our team who embodies the mission, vision and values of CTK, with the heart, talent, leadership and interpersonal skills to oversee the development of people, systems and services.
This will be a full-time salaried position.
It is generally expected that a full-time work week will be between 40-50 hours, including worship gatherings.
Provided that the ministry is "covered" during absence, this position can take whatever time may be needed for personal renewal and vacation, with pay. Generally, it is expected that the harder you work, the more time off may be needed, and that the biblical pattern of the sabbath (six parts work, one part rest) is a good pattern to be followed.
It is expected that a local pastor will have contact with his supervisor (Area or Regional Pastor) at least once per month. These meetings are for mutual support and encouragement.
The position and the work environment will be reviewed at 30 days and thereafter each October. At any review both sides can evaluate whether they want the relationship to continue, discontinue, or continue with alterations.
