Waterbrooke Fellowship Church

Position Title:  Senior Pastor

Organization Location:  Victoria, MN

Job Description: Waterbrooke Fellowship, an evangelical church in Victoria, MN, is seeking an individual for the role of Senior Pastor. This will be an opportunity to serve in an established but relatively young church. God has placed Waterbrooke in a dynamic setting, on a beautiful lake property with much space for growth, and with a city rapidly forming around it on all sides. 

Overview

Waterbrooke is looking for a Senior Pastor who will equip its people for works of service in this rapidly changing community.  Our next pastor will lead and direct the preaching/teaching ministry, ensuring that a biblically-based message is taught and demonstrated by all the leadership at Waterbrooke.  He must hold to the inerrancy of Scripture, teaching the whole counsel of God and the authority of Scripture over our lives - God’s absolute right to command belief and action through His Word.   

At the same time, our pastor must come to know our community well and must be a visionary.  In a world that is ever changing, he must be willing to continually review church programs, habits, and traditions - those that are not mandated by Scripture and are not serving the Kingdom of God well.  It is essential that he lead this church in adapting to better reach the lost here in Victoria and the surrounding areas.  The YFC motto, “Geared to the times, anchored to the rock” expresses our deep desire for this church.

Our new pastor will serve on the Board of Overseers (Elders) and provide leadership there, as well as overseeing church staff.  The senior pastor will act as leader, shepherd, and chief executive officer of the church, under the supervision of the church overseers.

Pastoral Requirements

1 and 2 Timothy and Titus, as well as other passages, give us the Biblical pattern of a good pastor.  We recognize that these will be a life-long pursuit; every Christian is in a continual process of being conformed into the image of Jesus Christ, “for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill His good purpose. (Phil 2:13)

Following are the characteristics we believe a candidate for Senior Pastor at Waterbrooke must have attained to be effective, and that we therefore require:

  • A clear calling by God to be a Pastor.  No one invites himself into God’s court.  Just as the prophets had a strong and clear call to God’s service, we also believe a Pastor should be able to recount clear evidences in his life that God has marked him for this position. 
  • A hunger for the rigorous study, understanding, and application of the Word of God.  We believe the Holy Spirit uses the Word of God to transform a person to be a man of God (2 Tim 2:15 and 3:16).  Willingness to seek and discern God’s message for the congregation, spending significant time and effort using professional skills to develop and deliver that message.   As such, we prefer a pastor candidate to have a MATS or MDIV from a recognized evangelical seminary, or to be in pursuit of such a degree.
  • A deep, personal relationship with Jesus Christ evidenced by a passionate, heartfelt love for His people.   A pastoral candidate shall have a track record of Christ-like concern for  the people God has placed under his care (1 Tim 3:1-7, Titus 1:5-9, 1 Peter 5:1-4).  As such, we seek a man with at least 5 years experience as a pastor, with strong recommendations and references.
  • A strong desire to lead this church in interacting with the community and reaching the lost.  This includes helping Waterbrooke develop a strong and effective evangelism and discipleship mentality.  We desire to think and act as, for example, David Platt writes in Radical. We will need a visionary, and a man that is not afraid to try things, fail, and try again as we reach out to this community.
  • A personal background that demonstrates strong moral and ethical character.
  • A life that demonstrates to others that prayer is a priority, both personally and in the life of the church
  • A courageous spirit.  Large parts of Paul’s writings to Timothy are exhorting him to confront error.  We know the church will continue to face pressures to conform to society; we need a pastor that will call out and confront any influence, inside the church or out, that compromises the clear teaching of the Word of God or that hinders people from coming to Christ.  The pastor must be able to “correct, rebuke, encourage, with great patience and careful instruction.” (1Tim 1:3,  4:1-6, 2 Tim 3:16, 2 Tim 4:2-15)
  • The intent to be at Waterbrooke for at least ten years.  We realize that God is ultimately in charge of this, but many respected pastors believe the best churches have had long term pastors – we agree.

About Us

Waterbrooke is a 15 year old congregation.  A senior pastor will be joining a music pastor and an office administrator as paid staff, and a Board of Overseers, bookkeeper and treasurer as volunteer leaders.  We are associated with Converge (formerly the Baptist General Conference) and were sponsored in the year 2000 by Minnetonka Baptist (now Ridgewood Church).  We are situated on a nine acre plot alongside Wasserman Lake in Victoria, MN.  The church has an average attendance of about 100 people, with 120 regular attendees.

We have elected to work exclusively through the Converge P3 process. All interested candidates are directed to apply through this process at:

The Father's Ranch Ministries

Position Title:  Intern (Female only) 

Location: Tonasket, WA

Position Summary: Interns are women who help to provide care and guidance to troubled young adults and teens (called students) in The Father’s Ranch Ministries’ residential community setting.  Interns often receive practical and academic training while ministering to the hurting.  They serve, not by their own strength or character, but by the power of Jesus Christ working through them.  Role modeling and sharing God's love and power through the work of the Holy Spirit are vital aspects in the healing process of the students at The Father’s Ranch.

Interns live in community with their students, building relationships while participating in daily activities such as class, worship, work and recreation.  Internship is a 24-hour, residential position that allows for minimal time off (one evening per week and every other weekend.)  Interns make a voluntary commitment to serve for 3, 6, or 12 month periods.  It is a time of testing and purifying, a time where God's faithfulness and comfort are experienced in a real and life-changing way.  It is a time of growth and maturing.  It is a time when God shows His overwhelming strength in weakness.

Responsibilities:

I. Role Modeling. "We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well..."  1 Thessalonians 2:8.

Role modeling is a primary facet of the Intern's ministry. Students learn how to appropriate God's word into their lives through the living demonstration of the Interns.  Students need to see the Intern not only in a spiritual setting, but also in the workplace, at play, and interacting with people in various situations.

Being an Intern does not mean being a Christian who never has problems.  It means having struggles but desiring to grow and conform to the image of Christ.  Through their commitment to the students, Interns can demonstrate that leading also involves serving.

II. Accountability. "And we urge you, brethren, admonish the unruly, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with all men." 1 Thessalonians 5:14.

The Father’s Ranch is a highly structured program which demands a disciplined lifestyle from its students.  Because Interns serve the students in a shepherding role, they must keep their flock accountable.

However, Internship is more than supervising the students and enforcing the rules; it is admonishing, reproving and training students in righteousness.  To some extent, Interns do play the role of disciplinarian, but discipline should be viewed as a positive attempt to correct and teach rather than punish.  Biblical instruction accompanies the discipline to help develop Christ-like character.

III. Discipling. While all Interns play a role in the discipleship of the students, some Interns are needed to disciple individual students with the purpose of helping them work through the issues (such as substance abuse, depression or eating disorders) that brought them to The Father’s Ranch for help.

Discipling Interns are responsible for meeting with students individually on a regular basis to help resolve problems through the practical application of Biblical principles.  Students are often immature emotionally and behaviorally, as well as spiritually; another purpose for discipling is to stimulate growth and affect change in these areas as well.

Discipling Interns do not "go it alone."  They have the daily support and guidance of a Full Time Staff member who advises Interns and helps them implement a plan to better help their students achieve growth and victory over struggles.  The Father's Ranch Full Time Staff intervene in critical situations.

Qualifications: Interns are not necessarily dynamic and gregarious individuals, and they are not necessarily Bible scholars or trained counselors.  Interns do receive some intensive training at the start of their service commitment, and they continue to receive in-service training.  However, the following characteristics are required in order to serve in an Intern capacity:

  • A strong commitment to the Lord Jesus Christ as demonstrated through a victorious Christian walk.
  • A solid foundation in Biblical truth and personal application of God's Word in your daily life.
  • Regular attendance and fellowship in a New Testament church.
  • A burden for ministering to troubled young adults and a willingness to serve them and the Lord in a self-less, full-time capacity.
  • The ability to initiate and build relationships, and the ability to confront, encourage and admonish students in Christ-like love.

Interns live with our women and teenage girls in our residential treatment programs, so we are only seeking female candidates.

How To Apply: Please submit a detailed letter of interest along with a current resume to the following address:
