Co-Pastor-- Petersburg, AK

Petersburg Bible Church
916 Sandy Beach Road
Petersburg, AK 99833

Job Title: Co-Pastor


Job Summary: Partnering with the current full-time pastor in shepherding the flock and reaching the community for Christ. We are looking not for a specialist but for someone who can do all the things a pastor normally does. (Preaching, teaching, leading, counseling, discipleship, etc). Once we find the right person, we can bend the specifics of the position according to the gifts, strengths, interests, and passions of the pastor.

Job Description:

Emphasis will lie primarily on:
• Sharing the pulpit with the Lead Pastor
• Meeting people for discipleship and ministry training. With a growing congregation with many eager to grow and minister to others, this pastor will focus attention on actively mentoring and training people in spiritual maturity and ministry to others
• Meeting individuals & couples for pastoral/Biblical counseling as well as engaging in regular visitation. With the isolation of island-life there are few options for receiving pastoral/Biblical counsel other than from a pastor or other Christian acquaintances. This provides a large opportunity for applying God’s Word to a whole range of struggles that people face. Proactive discipleship and counsel will take place through regular visitation of those in the congregation. 


Other responsibilities will include:
•Teaching
• Being an evangelistic witness in the community
• Facilitating church programs including small groups, conferences, committees, and assisting with day-to-day administration.
• Other ministry opportunities depending on need and the gifts, interests, and passions of the minister.


Though the past few pastors and the current leadership is Reformed, the congregation is quite diverse. Any pastor here must be able to balance preaching his convictions with lovingly shepherding those who may have differing views on Calvinism, Biblical Manhood and Womanhood, Eschatology, and other secondary or tertiary issues. An experienced, patient, humble pastor who is not militant about non-salvation doctrines, with a respect for differing theological positions, and with a passion for church unity is preferred.

Other Information: 

The Community
Petersburg Bible Church is located in Petersburg, Alaska, a town of approximately 3000 people. Petersburg is on the northern tip of Mitkof Island in Southeast, Alaska within the famous Inside Passage. Petersburg was founded by Norwegian fishermen over a hundred years ago and is called Alaska’s Little Norway. It is a fairly stable community sustained by a strong fishing industry, tourism and federal employees working with the Forest Service. Petersburg is surrounded by the stunning beauty of the Tongass National Forest, the nation's largest national forest. Tourists come to Petersburg to enjoy hunting, fishing, hiking and sight-seeing. While the climate is relatively moderate, a substantial amount of precipitation accompanies life in Petersburg.

The Church
In the mid-1900’s missionaries with Gospel Missionary Union started planting a series of churches throughout Southeast Alaska including one in Petersburg in 1967. Once each church was well established, Gospel Missionary Union launched them as independent churches which took place for the Petersburg Bible Church in 1980. The congregation has steadily grown to now to about 200 regular attenders. While the congregation is comprised by believers from many different backgrounds, there is unity and passion for the furtherance of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Intern (Female), Tonasket, WA

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

Job Title: Intern (Female)


Job Description


Summary

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.


RESPONSIBILITIES

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 "do 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.

BASIC QUALIFICATIONS

"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.
