We’re looking for someone in a full-time capacity, and our desire is for this to become a long-term ongoing position, subject to a performance review after 12 months.
Our desire is that the successful applicant would provide support in leadership; preach regularly; run one small group; oversee pastoral care/ discipleship, and encourage and equip the people in evangelism. The ability to serve in music ministry would be a bonus. The paid elder would work within our current eldership team, who together, will lead the church.
Our preference is that the successful applicant would start as soon as possible, but we would be willing to wait a number of months for the right person.
Salary would be $70k plus living rent-free in the church house, plus superannuation, and 5 weeks annual leave.
CCCM is part of the CCCVAT and BUV networks. Most attendees are from the Morwell, Traralgon and Churchill communities. We meet on 5-7 McDonald Street 10 am on Sundays with about 45 people present. We also run a Sunday school, midweek Bible studies, an evangelism group, and a seniors group.
We are a complementarian church, meaning we equip both men and women for ministry in the church; however, the role of elder is reserved for adult men.
We believe in the Bible and in the centrality of the gospel of the atoning work of Christ, and we describe ourselves as evangelical and having our roots in the soil of the 16th-century protestant reformation. We would expect a paid elder to share our commitment to reformed evangelical theology.
