Bi-Vocational Associate Pastor (Outreach and Discipleship Focused)


Friendship Community Church is making the shift from having one full-time pastor to developing an intentionally bi-vocational team. This will allow the pastoral staff to better leverage all of life for the kingdom, increase pastoral capacity, and multiply the gifts at work for equipping and encouraging the church.

The Associate Pastor position will be a quarter-time position. The salary package is based on the U.S. compensation guidelines for pastors and is a fair amount for quarter-time with the recognition that the individual will have to make the remainder of a fair pastor's pay package through their bi-vocational life.  

The ideal candidate will have gifts and passion in developing community, cultivating Christ-centered relationships, and discipling disciples who in turn make more disciples. 

Preference will be given to ordained pastors or church planters, but candidates and seminarians looking to gain missional experience (as an intern or apprentice) are also encouraged to inquire. 

If you are interested in more information please email pastor Scott Van Voorst at [email protected] to request a two-page description of the position or setup a conversation to learn more.
