Church Staff Openings
The following IBC member churches have staff openings:
Aviano Baptist Church, Italy: Pastor
Position Seeking: Pastor
The congregation at Aviano Baptist Church (ABC) consists of a diverse population of approximately 140 regular attenders and 70 members. We are an English-speaking church comprised almost entirely of military members and their families from various denominational backgrounds. Being that Aviano Air Base is our target audience, the average age of our congregation is relatively young compared to most churches. We are a multi-generational church, but our key demographic is young professionals and young families. Serving a military population can create drastic fluctuations in attendance. Additionally, the transient nature of a military church can bring difficulties to areas that a lot of stateside churches take for granted (i.e. steady volunteer base, actively engaged regular attenders, etc.). However, through the years, ABC has been blessed to have all of its needs and more met by both its faithful members and regular attenders.
ABC is looking for a lead pastor answering a divine calling to minister to a unique community. The senior pastor will have the qualities outlined in 1 Timothy 3 as well as other aspects expected of a person serving in this position.
- A deep, steady faith, experience in leading, mentor, and disciple the community. (1 Timothy 3:5)
- Living a Christ-transformed life, an example of God’s unwavering love and a show of devotion to their flock. (1 Timothy 3:5)
- Spiritually mature with sound doctrines, humble, and honest in their daily life. (1 Timothy 3:2,3:6)
- Be influential and inspirational in accordance with God’s word. (1 Timothy 3:2)
- Experience in ministering within a military community is a significant advantage for relevant and effective ministry in the Aviano Community.
- (Preferred) Education in Christian biblical theological studies (ie: Masters of Divinty, Masters of Theology, etc)
- Some pastoral experience

Calahonda IBC, Spain: Pastor (interim or long term)
CIBC PASTORAL POSITION
Calahonda International Baptist Church is an IBC church located on the southern coast of Spain, between the City of Marbella and Malaga. Due to its location in one of the world’s major holiday destinations, CIBC has a significant ministry to visitors, who normally make up more than half of its typical attendance. The church family includes more than a dozen nationalities, with British and Irish the largest representation. While the Sunday morning services are often well attended, the core group of people who live on the coast and call CIBC home is around twenty people. The church also has a steady flow of largely unchurched people who join us regularly, and there is great potential for a person with discipling skills to develop this needy part of the work.
CIBC is looking for someone who is a strong discipler of people, who feels comfortable leading small groups and pouring himself into individuals. Secondly, we need someone with organizational skills. And thirdly, we are looking for a person with a team oriented philosophy of leadership, that is, that they see themselves as the full time elder on a team of elders and deacons, some of whom are themselves in full-time ministry elsewhere. Previous cross cultural experience is preferred. There are more women than men in our congregation, and we would anticipate the pastor’s wife playing a significant role in the church. Teaching, counseling, and hospitality are great needs.
The church has no staff and has not had a permanent pastor in many years, and is in many ways an ongoing church plant. The position is self-funded, though we have historically been able to provide for ministry expenses. We are looking either for an interim pastor who could give at least six months of ministry to the church, or a longer term minister who could commit to at least two years.

After a wonderful seventeen-year ministry, our current pastor is retiring in June 2021. The International Baptist Church of Prague (IBCP) is seeking a new pastor to lead our multicultural

IBCP has been active since 1993 with a core of about 60 people. Prague is a tourist destination, so pre-COVID we would welcome persons each Sunday from around the world.
Our pastor is assisted by a team of lay-leaders who help organize Sunday worship and also facilitate discipleship and outreach efforts. Our new pastor will need experience in pastoral and cross-cultural ministry. Currently our church ministers to the needs and spiritual development of university students, along with outreach in some difficult life situations.
