Church Staff Openings

The following IBC member churches have staff openings:

 

IBC Calahonda, Spain: Missionary Pastor
Position overview: Missionary Pastor

Calahonda International Baptist Church is a small but thriving congregation that has been in existence for over 20 years.  We are conservative but not rigid in our theology.  Our membership is made up of many different nationalities with UK expats being the largest of these.  We are an English language church but for many of our attenders it is a second or even third language  We are team-lead, Christ-honoring, Bible-believing, and evangelistic in character.  We are very much relational in all that we do.  We love God, each other and all those outside our fellowship.  Our average attendance is around 45.  Normally we will have 20 or more visitors in the Sunday services.  Our worship style is blended and enthusiastic, and we operate our own building facility.

The church is located in Calahonda, a vacation and resort community that is a part of the Costa del Sol, just east of Marbella, Spain.  It is at the heart of a large multi-cultural English-speaking population that is largely unreached by the gospel. As such, it is an English speaking ministry with strategic potential and opportunity for growth in a part of the planet that since ancient times has been one of the world’s great crossroads.

Qualifications must include:

  • A passion for the international church and a desire to reach a multi-national, largely English speaking expatriate community in southern Spain. • A master of divinity degree from an accredited seminary. • The flexibility to minister effectively in a culturally and theologically diverse congregation. • A team-oriented philosophy of leadership. • Able to model an authentic relationship with Christ and communicate it clearly. • Has strong one-on-one relational skills and has a passion for developing and discipling individuals. • A learner’s attitude. • Willingness to raise support or self-fund.

Other qualifications that would be advantageous but not required:

  • Prior pastoral experience outside of North America in an English-speaking international church context. • Knowledge of Spanish.
