Employment is offered full-time (5 days/week) with flexible hours across the week, negotiated with other Pastors and agreed upon by the Leadership Team. The remuneration package is based on the BUV recommended stipend for 2021/22.
KBC is missionally focused, supporting missions locally and globally and we are looking for a Senior Pastor who can nurture the church’s spiritual growth and continue to lead the church in missional engagement.
KBC is about to undertake a significant building project. In consultation with the Leadership Team, you will support and advocate the building project within our church and the local community. Experience in a similar context would be beneficial but not essential.
Kew Baptist (KBC) is situated on Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung peoples’ land in the inner eastern suburb of Melbourne. Founded in 1856, it has a rich heritage and history of faith and service within the community of Kew and beyond.
We are a welcoming community of people that share a faith in Christ but are diverse in background. The church has 250-300 people across two congregations, with small groups a central element of church life and discipleship. Both faithful congregations have experienced growth and change over the last few years. The Morning Church congregation has seen an increased number of families and young couples attending, together with the established senior attendees. NightChurch has also continued to grow with current and former residents of the Kew Student Residence (a ministry of KBC since 1962) continuing to attend together with an increasing number of young people connecting in, both singles and couples.
