Immanuel Baptist Church, Madrid, Spain: Senior Pastor

Position Seeking: Senior Pastor

Immanuel Baptist Church (IBC) is an English-speaking International congregation in Madrid, Spain. The church is 61 years old. Today IBC serves as church home for people from over 40 nations. Because it is English-speaking in a non-English-speaking country, the congregation embraces people from different denominations, who also come from a variety of cultures and socio-economic levels. The attendance was averaging just over 500 people each Sunday in the pre-Covid world, though we have not quite returned to that level. The church relates to both the International Baptist Convention (IBC) and the Spanish Baptist Convention (UEBE). We seek to glorify God as we know Him and make Him known through our spheres of influence in Madrid and around the world.

Each Sunday in our services you can find university students sitting next to international business people, sitting next to immigrants, sitting next to embassy employees, sitting next to teachers or missionaries, who are sitting next to Spaniards.

Our church seeks to be a “modern-day Antioch” that gives testimony to the grace of God through cross-cultural ministry, Christlike living, intentional discipleship and church planting. As we look out over the people in our congregation we cannot help but wonder about all the plans God has for us with this unique combination of languages, experiences, passions and cultures. We long to find where God is working and join Him. At this point in the life of our church we are looking for a senior pastor who will come work alongside us as God makes His vision for our church a reality.

Responsibilities

The senior pastor will oversee the mission, vision and strategy of the church as a whole and translate this to the vision and strategy of the different church ministries.

Qualifications

Above Reproach (Titus 1:6-9; 1 Tim 3:2-7), Committed to a biblical gospel (Rom. 1:16, Acts 20:24, Php. 3:7-9, Gal. 6:14),

Referred complementary profile

Cross-culturally sensitive, at least 10 years previous ministry experience, people-centered strategic thinker, seminary degree, married with children

International Bible Church of Armenia: Pastor

Position Seeking: Pastor

International Bible Church of Armenia in Yerevan is looking for a biblically qualified and called pastor. We are an elder-led church, and the elders share pastoral and preaching responsibilities, yet we are calling for a full-time (teaching elder/lead pastor), to work in a cross-cultural, multi-ethnic church-plant.

The candidate would be a missionary/pastor, and would need to raise their support for this calling – (Armenia has a relatively low cost of living, as it is a developing nation, thus a high amount of support is unnecessary). The congregation and people of ministry would be primarily among English-speaking Americans, Indians, Russians, Persians, Kurds, and Armenians. We also have many other ethnicities within the country and in the city of Yerevan.

The primary ministries of the TE elder/lead pastor would be pastoral, preaching/teaching, & organizing events within the church, along with strategizing for evangelism for Persian outreach, Russian outreach, etc…, We have the vision to start more churches within the country, and surrounding countries, so the candidate must share a passion for missions and church-planting. Our church is a missional church and is strategically located to make an impact in Armenia and among the unreached neighboring nations.
