The Mission is a part of the Be In Christ Church of Canada (canadianbic.ca) which is a growing faith community – following Jesus, sharing His message, and extending His peace around the world. Our congregation has great representation in every age demographic with the biggest demographic being young families. Our hope is that an investment in this demographic will have a positive ripple effect on all other ministries that follow it. Some of the strongest traits we are known for is kindness, acceptance, and being “outward focused”.
General Position Description
We are seeking 1 Full-time position to provide pastoral care and spiritual leadership to our young families. This position includes work/leadership with our Sunday morning Mission Kids program, our Summer Camp program, and eventually developing a mid-week program. The successful candidate will report directly to the Senior Pastor and will be required to submit monthly and annual reports to the church Governing Board.
– Agree with the Canadian BIC Statement of Faith and understand our denominational identity
– Post-Secondary education preferred in a related field of study such as a B.R.E
– Can demonstrate the skills needed to disciple parents and be a peer leader
– Have experience in leading an established program
– Possess effective communication, organization, and interpersonal skills
1. Model the way
• Develop priorities, habits, routines and traditions personally that you want to see families adopt.
Skills required: Discipline, boundary setting, and intentionality.
2. Develop and implement an approved plan of care and guidance for parents
• We would like to see someone come along side parents as they establish family priorities, traditions, and routines and guide them towards being “Christ Centered”.
Skills required: Spiritual formation, strong interpersonal skills, pastoral counsel and accountability
3. Give Leadership to HSCP
• HSCP (Houghton Summer Celebration Program) has a long and storied history and has been a part of our community for decades in some form or another. Presently, it is a seven-week camp that starts in July and runs until mid-August. We see a need to bridge a gap between this program (which averages 50 children a day) and our congregation.
Skills required: Effective communication, strong organization, team building, problem solving
4. Give leadership to Mission Kids
• Mission Kids is a Sunday morning program that runs during the service. Children are with their parents for some of the service but then are dismissed just before the sermon.

Skills required: Teacher training, recruitment, strategizing continuity in the curriculum, team building and problem solving

Service Opportunity – Home Living Coordinator Couple – BIC Overcomers Program
The BIC Overcomers Program is a ninety-day residential alcohol and drug rehab primarily for Navajo men struggling with addiction issues. We are housed at Navajo BIC Mission south of Bloomfield, New Mexico on the edge of the rez.
The family dynamic is an essential element of our success because of husband and wife servant workers who come as Home Living Coordinators. It is an opportunity to do the most elemental aspect of our faith by reaching out to others who are hurting and looking for a helping hand. I refer to it as Friendship Evangelism on steroids.
For ninety days, Home Living Coordinator couples are house parents to men fully acquainted with heartbreaking difficulties. It’s an intense people-to-people adventure—we offer unconditional love and acceptance to those who have known much rejection.
The Overcomers Program requires two Home Living Coordinator couples for each session, Spring and Fall. We are always actively enlisting prospects—if you have any interest please do not hesitate to contact me — Ken Abell – 937.414.3754 or firstname.lastname@example.org
