Grace Baptist Church, Grafenwoehr, Germany: Pastor

Grace Baptist Church is a healthy, dynamic, ever-growing evangelical English-speaking church ministering to a mostly U.S. military congregation in the Grafenwoehr/Vilseck communities in Germany. There are two large (brigade size) Army posts within 30 minutes driving distance from the church. The congregation is mostly made up of young American families with children, single soldiers, and some Germans. Our congregation is diverse culturally, racially, and ethnically with almost every conceivable background represented in the church. A pastor ministering at GBC can experience the extraordinary opportunity to live in Germany while making a real difference in people’s lives!

GBC is a family-oriented church. We value authenticity, relationships, outreach, spiritual growth, worship, and service. Our current Sunday attendance runs about 150 people (about 220 pre-Covid). We own our church building, are secure financially, and the spirit of the church is positive and harmonious. Two of our main priorities are children’s ministries and small groups—both homegroups in individual homes in the community and other small group Bible studies, such as a weekly women’s Bible study and a monthly men’s breakfast.

The new pastor must love Jesus passionately and have the skills to develop a ministry that is biblical, relational, and authentic.

The pastor will agree with our Statement of Faith. He will be a male pastor of Evangelical Protestant belief, have a minimum of attending seminary and at least two years’ experience in a shepherding/teaching role.

If the pastor has a family with small children, it should be remembered that Germany does not allow homeschooling unless the pastor or pastor’s wife is able to get a part-time job on-post which offers logistical support (an ID card with privileges to use on-post facilities). Otherwise, school-age children must attend German schools.
