We are seeking a full-time Family Life Minister for our congregation. We desire a candidate who is accustomed to feeding the hungry, clothing the needy, welcoming the visitor, and visiting the sick and the imprisoned. If you have a burning desire to help a small congregation work toward becoming a healthier, trusting, and on-fire church to the glory of God then we ask you to please send us your resume.
We are a congregation of about 100 in attendance on Sunday mornings. We have a modern, user friendly building, specifically designed for outreach, situated in one of the fastest growing suburban communities in Southeastern Michigan (see more of us on our website www.southlyonchurch.org). We are a congregation well on the way to re-casting its mission-led efforts to become a service oriented, grace based, contemporary and connected body of believers in our community.
We will not list a large number of job responsibilities, for you know a full-time Family Life Minister in a small congregation has to cover from A to Z. But we will try to not tie you down with duties other members can be trained to perform, as long as you are there supporting and equipping them to service the Lord.
The FLM should have sufficient experience and a dedicated heart to successfully supervise your own actions and be accountable for reporting them to the elders and congregation regularly. Our goal is having you partner in the best interest of the congregation’s planned ministry.
You should be well acquainted with and skilled in pursuing and conducting home bible studies with prospective converts. You should be an example and trainer to those who want to join with others to grow and mature in the Lord’s kingdom.
You will not be responsible for public speaking at our assemblies, we have a preaching minister who fills that role on a weekly basis. You may be called on to fill in from time to time, though rarely necessary. Communicating with the congregation is important though and should include all forms of alternative methods of communicating, such as assembly announcements, announcements in bulletins, flyers, videos, emails, Facebook, twitter and other social media.
The Family Life Minister will need the experience and skills to motivate and lead members to serve others in the community. While contributing to the effort yourself, you will need to guide and allow others to join in the works of faith that the Lord expects of us all and inspire members to become ministers themselves in His kingdom while working in our Ministry Small Groups in our IOU program.
Above all, the FLM cannot be short on energy and imagination as you become a team player with the members, teachers, deacons and elders who are determined one day to hear our Lord say to us: “'Good work! You did your job well. From now on be my partner.' (Matt 25:21 The Message)
