Are you enthusiastic about promoting a culture of discipleship growth through personal spiritual disciplines?
Bonsack Baptist Church in Roanoke, VA is in search of a Minister of Discipleship to grow and equip their Sunday School and small groups and to develop the hearts, minds, souls, and body of the church. This will mainly be done through the growth of Sunday School and the assimilation process for new members to become active members of the church community.
The Minister of Discipleship will evaluate, develop, implement and maintain a comprehensive discipleship and outreach strategy. This position will oversee the teachers and manage curriculum for Sunday school classes as well as provide ongoing vision and guidance for the hospitality team and the primary adult discipleship ministries of the church. In addition to assessing areas of need for discipleship training and planning appropriate development of spiritual growth, the Minister of Discipleship will develop and communicate the process by which new believers, new members, and guests find their place. Ultimately, this will inspire in others a passion for reaching our community for Christ.
This successful candidate will have a growing relationship with Jesus Christ as well as healthy family relationships and strong moral character. The right person will show a proven passion for making disciples and developing teams in a growing church. They will combine the ability to communicate clearly and effectively as a leader and teacher with the ability to think strategically and involve others in all levels of the disciple-making process. The candidate will have a master’s degree in Christian Education, Discipleship or comparable degree in addition to a minimum of five years of vocational ministry experience, preferably in a supervisory role.
Bonsack Baptist is located in the northeast sector of the Roanoke Valley. This once-rural area has grown in the last decades to become a suburban outpost. Though only six miles from downtown Roanoke, this area has a life of its own. People who move here have a tendency to stay and the community benefits from two very good school systems. The Blue Ridge Parkway and the Appalachian Trail both pass within less than 6 miles from the church, and Smith Mountain Lake is less than 30 minutes to the south. It is truly a beautiful place to live!
