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.
