Bethany Christian Church (BCC), a church of 150+, is actively seeking our next lead minister. We are looking for someone who is willing to work with our elders and staff to develop and implement a positive vision for our future. Our former minister recently completed an 8-year ministry with us and left on good terms. The elders at BCC are unified and strive to encourage the lead minister in any way possible.
BCC is located in Louisa County, near central Virginia. We are close to Lake Anna, which is a beautiful local attraction that offers an abundance of activities for families and individuals. It is known for its fishing, swimming, and water sports. In addition, Lake Anna State Park offers some wonderful hiking trails and there are many restaurants surrounding the lake to enjoy.
The shops and activities in Short Pump and the quaint town of Ashland, are only about 30 minutes away. We are conveniently nestled in between Charlottesville, Richmond and Fredericksburg. The Blue Ridge Mountains, Virginia Beach and Washington D.C. are just a short drive away. In Bumpass, we enjoy quiet country living with lower real estate costs all while having the convenience of being close to options for shopping, museums, and hospitals.
BCC is a multigenerational, non-denominational Christian Church. We seek to reach lost people for Jesus, in our community and around the world through our church partners in Brazil, the Philippines, India and others. Supporting these ministries as well as being involved in local efforts, fueled by our desire to “Love God, Love People and Share Jesus”. We are a church that is open to anyone, as they are, willing to come and encounter the love of Jesus.
At BCC we focus on building disciples through providing service opportunities and Bible classes, covering a variety of subjects for all ages. We also offer growth and fellowship opportunities through studies we call “Community Groups”. BCC is grateful to have many families with small children and youth. We are fortunate to have members within the church serving in some capacity which allows us to offer children and youth bible study, as well as nursery and children’s church during our regular worship time. In addition, we enjoy planning fun, family events for all of our congregation and community to enjoy.
The lead minister will guide the staff and volunteer team leaders, cast vision and disciple the congregation through relational ministry as well as solid Biblical teaching. We would love for our minister to demonstrate a heart for leading others into outreach, both locally and globally. The elders encourage our minister to get to know their peers and be involved in a supportive professional relationship with other area ministers.
We are praying for a minister that will challenge, grow and lead us. This needs to be someone t2hat isn’t afraid to talk about hard topics, has vision for the future of our church, and seeks God’s truth and love. If that is you, we would love to hear from you!
