Revive Christian Church – Pastor Position
Moving people closer to the heart of God.
Imagine a community of Front Porch People, engaging each other in genuine relationships. A city who gives generously to those in need, embracing a lifestyle of service, filled with households and neighborhoods laboring together to improve the lives of all within. Families centering their busy schedule for life on purpose, being available to the opportunities and relationships God places them in. People seeking to rediscover the longing God has placed in their hearts for something real, fulfilling and eternal. A city on mission, spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ reviving hearts, one by one, throughout Bismarck and Mandan.
– History –
Revive is a 6-year-old church plant made up of around 80 people. We are an Independent Christian Church rooted in the Restoration Movement. We were planted by our former pastor and his wife through a church planting organization called Northern Plains Evangelical Association (NPEA).
– Location –
Located in the capital city of Bismarck, North Dakota, the city population is a little over 70,000. Bismarck is a growing city where people come from all over seeking job opportunities.
– Where We Gather –
We currently rent week to week out of a multi-purpose space as we do not rent a permanent facility or own a building. Set up and tear down every Sunday for our weekly services is a huge part of our culture. Church staff work from home or out of local coffee shops. We currently have one other church staff member – our Associate Pastor who leads worship and handles the communication.
– Our Church Body –
Revive is made up of a lot of young families with young children. Our nursery is booming with all the new babies being born every year. We have a lot of new believers really seeking to grow in their faith and walk with God.
We strive to be the hands and feet of Jesus in our community by putting a high emphasis on serving and loving our neighbors. We call ourselves, “front porch people.” Every month there is a 5th Sunday on the calendar, we skip the routine church service and jump into serving our community together as a church body. What we call Sunday Serve can vary from doing things like trash clean up to packing supplies in backpacks to hand out to the homeless.
One big thing our church is known for is our Saturday in the Park (SitP) events that we do throughout the summers. SitP is a free family event we put on for our community. We serve food and provide our bouncy houses and inflatables for families to enjoy.
Revive is looking for a man who is a devoted follower of Christ and continually growing in His faith and walk with God. If married, he must be dedicated to his family, loving his wife sacrificially as Christ loves the Church. He must be open and receptive to constructive feedback and strive to seek others’ counsel with humility. The Lead Pastor will understand and passionately communicate Revive’s mission and vision often and well. He will be a skilled and gifted teacher who is able to communicate God’s Word to people of all ages, challenging them to grow and take action in their walks with God. He must meet the requirements mentioned in these scriptures: 1 Timothy 3:1-13 and Titus 1:5-9.
