Northeast Presbyterian Church
Columbia, SC, USA
Job Type: Discipleship Pastor
Other Details

Job Overview: NEPC is seeking an Assistant Pastor who will provide pastoral leadership over the crucial area of Next Generation Ministries, a historic strength of our church. Next Gen. Ministries encompasses nursery through the end of high school, which includes NEPC Kids, Student Ministries, and our Mother’s Morning Out (MMO) program.

Qualifications: A bachelor’s degree from an accredited college, and an MDiv. degree from an accredited seminary. The candidate should either already be an ordained PCA pastor or be able to pursue ordination in the Palmetto Presbytery at a future time.

Theological Commitments: The candidate should know and love our historic reformed creeds and confessions, while also resonating with a gospel-centered approach to ministry. His theological vision for ministry should reflect the broad, good faith subscription strand of the PCA.

Areas of Responsibility:

  • Leadership of all Next Gen. Ministries
  • General Pastoral duties (if and when ordained)

Leadership of All Next Gen. Ministries:  This man must be a team leader. He should be confident in setting direction and leading direct reports. His principal involvement in the Next Gen. Ministries world will be leading the Student Ministry (6th -12th grade students). We are not looking for simply a Youth Pastor, but rather a pastor with the heart of a leader who has a passion for seeing the Next Generation know and follow Jesus. He will also provide pastoral oversight to our NEPC Kid’s Ministry.

NOTE on Student Ministry: Our Student Ministry is built around the Small Group model.

General Pastoral Duties: NEPC is a midsize church, so none of our pastors are specialists who
operate in a ministry silo. We have the joy of being on a staff team, so we are able to share the
load. General pastoral work is shared among all the pastors. These shared responsibilities include
helping lead the worship service, being on the preaching rotation, teaching adult Discipleship Hour classes (aka ‘Sunday School’) on occasion, assisting with hospital and sick visits, assisting with funerals, and other duties as assigned by the Senior Pastor.

This position will be a member of the leadership team at NEPC which includes the Senior Pastor,
Assistant Pastor of Congregational Care, Director of Women’s Ministry, Director of Music Ministry, Church Administrator, and Director of Technical Services.
