Greater Portland Bible Church is looking for a full-time Family Ministry Pastor. The right fit for this position will be someone who is above all a devoted follower of Jesus. He will be emotionally mature, have excellent interpersonal skills, and be approachable. He will know what spiritual gifts our Lord has given him and how he has been equipped to fulfill a pastoral role on our staff.


The Family Ministry Pastor must be in full agreement with the statement of faith of Greater Portland Bible Church and aligned with, or willing to align with our philosophy of ministry. Our philosophy includes but is not limited to: equipping people to follow Jesus and to help others follow him; a team model of ministry with a collaborative dynamic; and entrusting to gifted volunteer leaders significant ministry responsibility and authority. Our philosophy and purpose are encapsulated in the statement, “helping people follow Jesus together.”


The Family Ministry Pastor will provide pastoral leadership for the current student ministries team with a focus on serving, connecting, and discipling the families at Greater Portland Bible Church and the surrounding community. This pastor will provide leadership in actively partnering with our children’s ministries in the discipleship of families and will collaborate around a family ministries approach.  This pastor will also take the lead in working with all family ministries to develop and implement outreach to families outside our church body. This pastor will be spiritually gifted and scripturally qualified as outlined in 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:6-9.
