Campus Pastor

Bethel Church

Pasco, WA USA   MAP

Our church, Bethel Church, is a multi-campus church (3300+) in eastern Washington state. We are in a time of exciting transition as the founders and leaders of our campuses are looking to turn leadership over to a new generation. Our new senior pastor, who was one of our campus pastors, is initiating efforts to identify two new campus pastors to work as a team with him to lead Bethel Church into the future that God has for us. The two campuses, Prosser and West Pasco, are fairly similar in overall attendance but each is set in different contexts and has unique outreach ministries to their communities. We have in-person teaching pastors and leaders at each of our campuses, allowing us to connect with people and teach the Bible in ways that speak to each unique community. Our model gives us the strength and resources of a larger church but the community and neighborhood feel of a small one.

Pasco Community
The city of Pasco is an industrial and agricultural based community. It has been a rapidly growing city over the last 10 years with a population approaching 80,000. With over 300 days of sunshine, it is a place where families can enjoy outdoor activities with convenient access to the Columbia and Snake Rivers. Pasco is a diverse community with a strong Hispanic community presence and a mix of other cultures. 

Bethel church planted the West Pasco campus in 2008. The church met in a theatre for five years and then moved into a rented facility in a mall. The eventual goal is to build a church facility on land already purchased in what is the fastest growing area of Pasco. The next West Pasco campus pastor will work in concert with Bethel leadership to make disciples of Jesus and, Lord willing, move the campus into its own building.

West Pasco Campus
The successful candidate will give oversight to the entire campus of nearly 450 weekly attendees with 3 full-time staff and 8 part-time staff. He will give local oversight to all campuses ministries including worship gatherings, kids and students, small groups, and local and global outreach. A significant part of leading a campus is in-person teaching. A successful candidate will be an expository preacher with gifts and experience teaching in large and diverse settings. He will be a part of the Preaching Team where collaboration of sermons, structure, and overall series planning takes place.

What you bring:
• Bachelor’s degree in biblical studies or similar field required, graduate degree preferred.
• 5+ years experience leading ministries in a growing church environment.
• Strong knowledge of Scripture and theology, with upfront teaching experience in both large group and small group settings.
