Church Staff Openings

The following IBC member churches have staff openings:


IBC Hamburg, Germany: Children's & Youth Worker
Position overview:
Children & Youth Worker
(German, English, Spanish)
The “International Baptist Church of Hamburg e.V. (IBC)” is an international English-speaking church with members and visitors from over 50 nations. We have come to the Hamburg metropolitan area for a variety of reasons—training, work, family, or due to difficult political circumstances in our country of origin. Some of us have established permanent residence, others are here temporarily. Many of us have brought our families with us or have established one here, and are raising our children multilingual. For this reason,  CityChurch’s children and youth are very diverse in their linguistic and cultural backgrounds. As a rule, German is their principal language. There are also many Germans among us who have lived and/or worked in a foreign setting, or who live here in an intercultural family context. Because of our great diversity we are strongly focused on integration.
Along with the German and Spanish speaking branches of the Freie Evangelische Gemeinde Holstenwall, IBC comprises the “CityChurch Hamburg.” In our three branches we strive to take Christ to the people of our city. Over 600 adults and 150 children attend one of our three services every Sunday. In this exciting constellation we are looking for someone for IBC but also proportionally for the children and youth work in the CityChurch. You would thereby be joining a team of 12 employees with the aim of strengthening our joint multicultural children and youth work for the future.

We are a growing, family oriented church with a congregation drawn from numerous countries, cultures and religious backgrounds.
The ideal man for this position will be called by God, be spirit filled, a pastor, a friend and a shepherd who is approachable and hospitable with strong interpersonal and shepherding skills and a heart for reaching people from diverse cultural backgrounds.
He should be a mature believer who is fluent in English and who has a passion for God and His Word, is well grounded in doctrine, having received formal theological training and who is experienced and gifted in teaching the Word of God.

Complementary attributes would include having strong organisational skills, the ability to develop and guide leaders, be passionate about worship and have the skills to lead our growing church in worship. International experience as a Pastor would also be advantageous.

The successful candidate will naturally have been baptized upon his confession of faith in Jesus Christ as his own personal saviour.
