Executive Pastor at Bethel CRC (Lansing, IL)


Bethel Church looks for a qualified pastor to serve in the role of Executive Pastor.  He will work in concert with Lead Pastor Shaun Buikema to fulfill the mission of Bethel Church to go and make disciples of all nations (Matt 28:19) so that God will be exalted among the nations (Psalm 46:10).

Together, the two pastors will: support the mission and vision of Bethel Church; inspire our worship; report to the council through the Administrative Council; work together providing guidance to one another to each area of ministry at Bethel Church; and divide the shared responsibilities equally.

Shared responsibilities include:

  • All aspects of Bethel’s ministry: preaching, discipleship, pastoral care, evangelism and missions, church administration, and record keeping 
  • Recognize and using each other’s strengths
  • Working together to overcome each other’s challenges

The Executive Pastor has primary oversight and responsibility for administration, preaching, discipleship, adult ministry, supervising and mentoring support staff, leading the communications of pastor care and delegating pastor care opportunities, and to support and guide evangelism and mission efforts.

The Lead Pastor has primary oversight and responsibility for worship leadership, preaching, pastoral care, children’s ministry, youth ministry, and prayer ministry.
