Cover Letter:
To Whom It May Concern:

The Oroville Evangelical Free Church is currently searching for a Youth Pastor. This is a full time position. We are looking for someone with a college degree and preferably with seminary training as well as experience in youth work. We are committed to providing a living wage and benefits for a family. 
The Youth Pastor will be part of the pastoral staff, currently comprised of a senior pastor (of 14 years), a Director of Music (three years, full time), a Director of Children’s Ministries (eight years, half-time). We also sponsor a preschool – eighth grade Christian School on our campus which is fully integrated into the church ministries.

Our weekly worship attendance averages around 220. Our ministries include Awana, Youth Ministry, Women’s Ministry, a strong commitment to local benevolence as well as a strong commitment to missions, numerous small groups, and a yearly short term mission by high school youth to Mexico (with Amor
Ministries, building homes and conducting a daily vacation Bible school (VBS ).

The Youth Pastor will be challenged on a number of levels. We desire a “presence” on the two high schools in our community as well as various extracurricular activities such as sports, band and other activities. We strongly encourage active ministry by the youth in the life of the congregation. Presently we have a Youth Sunday on every fifth Sunday of a month. Youth sing in our choirs and at times on the Worship Team. Youth also serve in Awana and in our Sunday morning Discipleship Classes.

As a congregation we are concerned for the integrity and spiritual health of our families. In our endeavor to reach the youth in the community who are without knowledge of the Lord or spiritual life, we are persuaded exposure to dedicated Christian families in the life of the church is a critically important asset. We currently have dedicated adult youth sponsors and anticipate such adults/parents/families coming under the care of the Youth Pastor and being trained for effective ministry as well as in the spiritual care of their own families.

As a church we are experiencing modest growing pains. We recently purchased and have now remodeled a home adjacent to the church as a “Youth House”. We also have built a dedicated music building. Our next project is to considerably expand the foyer for our worship center. We are interested in a Youth Pastor who
wants to be part of a congregation desiring to reach its community with the gospel of our redemption in Christ and manifestations of the kingdom of God’s righteousness. Effective ministry is built and deepens over time. We are looking for a long term commitment by someone willing to become part of this family of faith seeking to know and love the Lord.

If you are interested, please contact the Search Committee at Evangelical Free Church, attention Search Committee, 3785 Olive Hwy., Oroville, CA 95966 or (530) 533-6866 or office@evfreeoroville.com.

Associate Pastor, Houston, TX

Kaleo Church
4455 N. Braeswood Blvd.
Houston, TX 77096

Job Title: Associate Pastor

Job DescriptionHere are the main areas you would be responsible for at Kaleo (not necessarily in order of priority):

Kaleo is a relatively young church, so we’re looking for someone who can help us faithfully shepherd our people through the major life transitions they will face in the years to come. We’re looking for a pastor who will help singles understand how to live faithfully during that season of their lives, equip newly married couples build a solid, Christ-centered foundation for their family in the years to come, and empower parents to serve as the primary disciple-makers for their children.

We’re looking for someone who can walk out of our pastoral meetings and put the church in motion towards the direction the team has set, taking the vision from 30,000 feet and bringing it down to a concrete executable plan at the ground level. We’re looking for a pastor who can work with teams of leaders and volunteers to make things happen, with the ability to think strategically and systematically about organizational development in a way that is still pastorally-minded and theologically-driven.

Community groups are an integral part of our ministry at Kaleo, serving as the front line for discipleship, evangelism, and care. We’re looking for someone to help our groups move to the next level of fruitfulness. We need someone who can build an effective leadership development pipeline and help us strategically and regularly multiply new groups. We’re looking for a pastor who can train and coach existing leaders so that they are confident and equipped to be the primary disciple-maker for their group.

While these are the main areas you’ll be overseeing, these are not the only things you’ll do. As a small, growing church no one on our team serves only as a specialist. Over the course of a few weeks, you’ll also likely find yourself doing things like:

  • Meeting with a member of the church to talk through challenges they are facing and offer prayer and counsel.
  • Discipling a new believer over lunch.
  • Helping lead elements of the Sunday service.
  • Hosting a lunch with people who have visited the church over the past few weeks.
  • Writing blog posts that help people grow in their faith and understanding of what God is doing in our church.
  • Teaching a session of our membership class.
  • Visiting a member of the church who is in the hospital.
  • Preaching several times a year.

  • Fulfill the duties required of Kaleo Covenant Partners as outlined in the Partnership Covenant.
  • Fulfill the character qualifications of an elder as taught in the Scriptures (1 Timothy 3, Titus 1, 1 Peter 5).
  • Affirm the 1689 London Baptist Confession.
  • Humility, desire to continually improve, and passion to help churches grow and thrive.
  • Commitment to serving Kaleo in role for at least three years to ensure a solid foundation and consistency.
  • Able to lead volunteer teams, recruit, develop and inspire people, set clear expectations and accountability.
  • “Kingly” in the tri-perspectival leadership model (prophet-priest-king): strong administrative and organizational skills and gifts, builder of strategies and systems, focused on details and execution.
  • Results-focused leadership with persuasive interpersonal skills adaptable to a variety of personalities and situations
Information about the Church: Kaleo’s greatest hope is to be a movement of the gospel that changes everything within us and moves powerfully all around us. To see this happen, we devote ourselves to continually pursuing intimacy with God, community with believers, and influence with others. We are Reformed Baptist theologically, and have been an active part of the Acts 29 Network for the past ten years. We have a team of three elders currently, two of which serve as non-vocational elders. In addition to a full-time Lead Pastor, we have a team of four part-time staff members. We are a portable church, worshiping weekly at a local YMCA. However, we have a great office space that provides a home base for our church’s ministry. The folks at Kaleo tend to be professionals, many of which have or are pursuing graduate degrees. We are a fairly young community of singles, young families, and a handful of empty-nesters and grandparents. We’re praying that God wound continue to expand the diversity of age, race, and life-stage that make up our church.

Kaleo began with a handful of people in 2004, and we are looking for another full-time pastor who can join our team and help us move into our next decade of ministry as a church.

Intern (Female), Tonasket, WA

The Father's Ranch Ministries
1621A State Route 20
Tonasket, WA 98855

Job Title: Intern (Female)

Job Description


Interns are women who help to provide care and guidance to troubled young adults and teens (called students) in The Father’s Ranch Ministries’ residential community setting. Interns often receive practical and academic training while ministering to the hurting. They serve, not by their own strength or character, but by the power of Jesus Christ working through them. Role modeling and sharing God's love and power through the work of the Holy Spirit are vital aspects in the healing process of the students at The Father’s Ranch.

Interns live in community with their students, building relationships while participating in daily activities such as class, worship, work and recreation. Internship is a 24-hour, residential position that allows for minimal time off (one evening per week and every other weekend.) Interns make a voluntary commitment to serve for 3, 6, or 12 month periods. It is a time of testing and purifying, a time where God's faithfulness and comfort are experienced in a real and life-changing way. It is a time of growth and maturing. It is a time when God shows His overwhelming strength in weakness.


1. Role Modeling
"We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well..." 1 Thessalonians 2:8.

Role modeling is a primary facet of the Intern's ministry. Students learn how to appropriate God's word into their lives through the living demonstration of the Interns. Students need to see the Intern not only in a spiritual setting, but also in the workplace, at play, and interacting with people in various situations.

Being an Intern does not mean being a Christian who never has problems. It means having struggles but desiring to grow and conform to the image of Christ. Through their commitment to the students, Interns can demonstrate that leading also involves serving.

2. Accountability
"And we urge you, brethren, admonish the unruly, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with all men." 1 Thessalonians 5:14

The Father’s Ranch is a highly structured program which demands a disciplined lifestyle from its students. Because Interns serve the students in a shepherding role, they must keep their flock accountable.

However, Internship is more than supervising the students and enforcing the rules; it is admonishing, reproving and training students in righteousness. To some extent, Interns do play the role of disciplinarian, but discipline should be viewed as a positive attempt to correct and teach rather than punish. Biblical instruction accompanies the discipline to help develop Christ-like character.

3. Discipling (optional)
While all Interns play a role in the discipleship of the students, some Interns are needed to disciple individual students with the purpose of helping them work through the issues (such as substance abuse, depression or eating disorders) that brought them to The Father’s Ranch for help.

Discipling Interns are responsible for meeting with students individually on a regular basis to help resolve problems through the practical application of Biblical principles. Students are often immature emotionally and behaviorally, as well as spiritually; another purpose for discipling is to stimulate growth and affect change in these areas as well.

Discipling Interns do not "go it alone." They have the daily support and guidance of a Full Time Staff member who advises Interns and helps them implement a plan to better help their students achieve growth and victory over struggles. The Father's Ranch Full Time Staff intervene in critical situations.


"Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim anything for ourselves, but our competence comes from God." "I can do everything through him who gives me strength." (2 Cor. 3:5; Phil. 4:13)

Interns are not necessarily dynamic and gregarious individuals, and they are not necessarily Bible scholars or trained counselors. Interns do receive some intensive training at the start of their service commitment, and they continue to receive in-service training. However, the following characteristics are required in order to serve in an Intern capacity:

• A strong commitment to the Lord Jesus Christ as demonstrated through a victorious Christian walk.
• A solid foundation in Biblical truth and personal application of God's Word in your daily life.
• Regular attendance and fellowship in a New Testament church. 
• A burden for ministering to troubled young adults and a willingness to serve them and the Lord in a self-less, full-time capacity.
• The ability to initiate and build relationships, and the ability to confront, encourage and admonish students in Christ-like love.

Interns live with our women and teenage girls in our residential counseling program, so we are only seeking female candidates.

Information About the Organization:
The Father’s Ranch Ministries is a non-denominational, Christ-centered counseling ministry. Incorporated in 1999, we provide a 6 to 18-month residential counseling program for women and teenage girls, with a transitional, open-ended “Next Steps” program following. We serve women and girls from all over the United States who are struggling with destructive, life-controlling issues such as drug-addictions, alcoholism, sexual/pornography addictions, depression, fear/anxiety, abuse issues, suicidal ideations, rebellion, and eating disorders. We have seen these women and girls regain physical, emotional, and spiritual health over what was once a seemingly hopeless situation, and retain that health in their personal lives. 

We also offer three additional programs, two of which are new in 2013. First, through the Biblical Counseling Center of Okanogan we seek to come alongside individuals and families who are in need of assistance through the process of Biblical counseling, and we provide Biblically sound, practical and encouraging sermons, seminars and conferences that will help to equip the local church. Second, College Transformation is an opportunity for young ladies to avoid the potential danger of destructive behaviors that can be bred in college dorm life. At TFR, they flourish in a distinctly Christian environment with a healthy degree of support, accountability, and encouragement. These young ladies choose from four College Transformation options: pursuing a college degree through online classes, participating in a technical program at our local community college, completing their GED exams, or working in the local community. Third, our Marriage Reformation ministry helps repair and strengthen marriages through the Word of God. Couples stay at our secluded 3-acre annex property for a weekend or a week, without interruptions, and have multiple daily counseling sessions with a certified Biblical counselor. Since the majority of women and girls in our residential counseling program come from broken homes, one of our goals in strengthening marriages is to prevent the development of life-controlling issues in children.

Information about the Church/Organization: 
First Evangelical Free Church of Wichita, Kansas, was started as a joint effort of the National Home Missions Department and the Midwest District (NE, KS) of the Evangelical Free Church of America in 1950. Numerous members of our current church family came to First EFC in the 1950’s and early 1960’s.

In 1965 capacity was reached in the first church building. At that time, a decision was made to relocate to our current site at 1825 N. Woodlawn in Northeast Wichita. Construction of the new facility was completed on September 24, 1967. There have been several additions to the original construction: 1976 - gym and classrooms, 1981 - additional classrooms, 1986 - courtyard enclosure, 1994 - office and classrooms, and 1998 - new worship center.

At First Free we are about one thing - making disciples of Jesus Christ who glorify God as the grace of the gospel grows deep in God's people and goes wide to all peoples. That's what Jesus called his disciples to in Matthew 28 and we believe all of us have been called to join that mission. This happens in a number of ways, but there are a few ways we think it happens best: worship services, groups, and sharing the gospel.

We have two identical services at 9:00 and 10:45 a.m. You will find a mix of worship styles, reflective of the unity of the church body. There could be hymns, modern songs, simple accompaniment, full band, organ, congregational singing or choir on any given Sunday, usually a mix of all. Every week is a little different. There will probably be something you love and something you don't like, but we're a family and we want to be together. The one thing you'll always find is a desire to worship God, to declare his gospel, and to bring him glory.

Our services are 75 minutes with about half of that being the sermon. We value expository preaching, which simply means the point of any particular text is the point of the sermon. We have an unwavering commitment to preach what we find in the Bible, and only what we find in the Bible. We usually do this by preaching through books of the Bible. God has chosen to reveal himself to his people through his Word so we want to make sure people are hearing God's Word. Through this weekly exposure to the gospel we believe the gospel will grow deep in us, shape us, and through us go wide to others.
