Youth Pastor Needed – PT – Columbia City, IN

Wednesday, September 18th, 2013

Blue River Church of the Brethren, Columbia City, Indiana, is searching for a part-time youth pastor.

Blue River is one of the more conservative congregations in the Northern Indiana District, and we try to maintain faithful adherence to the historic teachings of the Brethren, including trine immersion baptism for all members, the full Love Feast, the prayer veiling for services, modest dress, and lifetime faithfulness in marriage. Our basic statement of faith is the Brethren Card.

We are seeking someone who will uphold and model these understandings to our youth.

Our youth are energetic, and some have experienced short-term missions trips over the past several years. They are seeking to honor the Lord, and are in need of discipleship, instruction in God’s Word, and worthwhile Christian activity. We are not interested in “baby-sitting” our youth, but in challenging them to live for the Lord now.

We have an active Youth Steering Committee, and supportive parents. The right man will find our youth a joyful challenge.
