1. The Family Ministries Pastor will supervise and oversee many and varied Christian
Education ministries of the church, especially those dealing with infants through high school age youth and their families. It is expected that the Family Ministries Pastor will develop and lead ministers from within the congregation to use their gifts, talents, and energy to carry out the ministries.
These ministries may include, and are not limited to:
Vacation Bible School
Children’s Club Programs
Children’s and/or Youth Musical/Drama Programs
Mission Teams/Outreach Opportunities
Family Christian Education Opportunities
Summer Camp/Weekend Retreat Ministries
2. The Pastor will be a member of and work closely with the Education Committee and will
serve ex officio (with voice and vote) on each of the Education Committee’s task forces,
subcommittees and/or ministry teams created by the Education Committee to carry out their work.
3. The Pastor will engage in other general pastoral responsibilities, especially related to the
areas of children and youth and helping strengthen families in faith and discipleship.
4. The Pastor will subscribe without reservation to the church’s Statement of Faith and Church Covenant and will be in full agreement with Article 4 of the Church Constitution, which deals with church membership. In addition, he will embrace the church’s philosophy of ministry and values guiding our church’s leadership. Furthermore, he must agree to abide by the Converge (formerly known as Baptist General Conference) Code of Ministerial Ethics and shall also consider First Baptist Church the proper and legitimate caretaker of his ministerial credentials, including licensure and ordination.

Sturgeon Bay. While a “guarantee” is not required, the expectation is that a long–term relationship is in view – perhaps at least five years.

To enable maximum use of personal gifts and abilities for the good of the body of believers and to the glory of God, First Baptist Church will seek to meet the financial needs and obligations of the Pastor with a fair and reasonable salary and benefits package.

In addition, the church shall provide proper reimbursement for ministerial expenses, including mileage, personal professional expenses, and denominational participation.
