MISSIONS MINISTER 

Current - A Christian Church 
Job Description 

 

Current - A Christian Church is a rapidly growing church in a thriving suburb of America’s third largest city, Houston, Texas.  We are blessed with faithful and committed Elders, staff and volunteer leaders. We are also blessed with a new addition to accommodate the growth God has blessed us with, but facilities continue to feel squeezed as the growth continues.  12 ½ % of our general ministry fund giving goes to support missions, and our church is also very active in local missions through a homeless ministry, a food pantry ministry and special events.  Over the past 9 months, our church has been active in local missions through Hurricane Harvey relief.  We organized large work crews to initially clean and “muck out” over 200 homes.  Since that time, we have been involved in restoring over 40 houses. Our original goal was to help restore 25 houses, but we will exceed 50 houses by the completion of this work. We have raised over $800,000 designated specifically to Harvey relief and our restorations are ongoing.  This experience has impacted our heart to take the next step in being on mission, and this new role comes at a critical time where our church wants to see what God has in store for us in the area of missions locally and around the world. 

 

ChampionsThe Vision & Strategy 

Only those ready to be the Chief Champion of our mission strategy need apply.  This is all about connecting our church with mission partners and projects locally and around the world so they can understand and engage in the mission effort.  

 

Attracts- Others With A Winning & Positive Personality 

In many ways, this role is the face of missions, the face of generosity, the face of sharing one’s life and faith with others.  If you aren’t prepared to live your life totally sold out to Jesus and be that example to others, no need to get back to us. 

 

Drives- Toward Results & Impact 

We’re not interested in maintaining a churchy program that never changes.  We are interested in LIFE CHANGE.  We are interested in this body of believers becoming true followers and disciples of Jesus.  We are also interested in sharing God’s work and God’s message around the world.  Creativity, innovation, drive and grit are not just helpful qualities in our candidate, they are essential. 

 

Communicates- With Passion And Clarity 

Everything communicates. You’ll be challenged to communicate with a variety of people, and in a variety of ways.  We want our vision and strategy for missions to ooze from every email, social media post and conversation.  

 

Organizes- To Ensure Mission Success 

Along with the other skills and abilities that are required, be sure to pack your organization skills. A big part of this role is evaluating mission partners and mission projects to help our church make a difference around the world.  It involves oversite of a large mission budget, and organizing connections between our church and missionaries.  It means helping lead our church into the Great Commission through giving, short term trips and special projects. It’s all about attention to details and top notch follow-up, fueled by a deep passion for people. 

 

Collaborates- With Staff And Other Leaders 

If we implement the strategy and vision correctly, missions will connect with and flow through every ministry area of Current.  Be prepared to collaborate with other creative and passionate team members.  

 

Energizes- Others With A Self-Starting Attitude 

This is a big job with a great deal of responsibility and leadership development.  No lazy people allowed.  We need an energetic, self-starter who isn’t afraid to work hard for the good of God’s Kingdom.
