Job Description

Yuma Christian Church, a non-denominational church, believing the Bible to be the infallible word of God, is actively searching for the man God has chosen to lead us into the future.

The Preaching Minister understands that this Job Description is under the oversite of the Board of Elders of Yuma Christian Church. The way this scope of work is accomplished should be communicated and agreeable with the Board of Elders. The Preaching Minister understands that ministry demands a lot of time and his congregation needs to know when he is available to minister to the various needs of the congregation. This schedule must be communicated to the Board of Elders.

The Strategic Plan (This Section will be updated at the end of the year, for the next year.)

  1. Establish youth ministry programs directed at Grades 6-12.
  2. Develop a discipleship program to guide new Christians and further educate the Yuma Christian Church congregation.
  3. Plan and implement small groups. Our members need a safe space to develop safe relationships to do life, and the church needs a less formal place to invite people to church to begin their relationship with God.
  4. Establish organized structure and support to manage growth
    What does this look like exactly? Maybe Ministry leaders (deacons) that look at the needs of the congregation as well as ministry directed at church and the community.
  5. When needed, organize and provide a second service.
    We know we are limited for worship space.

Continued Education

Preaching Minister will have a continuing growth plan that is designed to improve ministry skills and the ability to lead and disciple people to Jesus. It will be signed by the Preaching Minister and the Elders. It will be updated yearly at the same time as the Strategic Plan.

The Preaching Minister will also help organize a growth plan for the individual elders that will also be signed by the Preaching Minister and the elders.
