    Job Requirements:

    A born-again, Spirit-filled believer, walking in progressive sanctification and obedience to God’s Word. A tithe-paying member of Evangel. Well-groomed, a self-starter who works well with people. Someone who is organized and committed to integrity, excellence, and innovation. If married, we expect the marriage to be in Biblical order, and that your spouse be supportive of your work in this place. It is expected that employees of Evangel and their dependent family members will attend regular and special church-wide services of the church. This person is a leader of leaders, not just a doer. While he or she must have the core competencies and be able to perform all of the ministry responsibilities, the only way Evangel will see more people saved and discipled, is if this person also has the ability to inspire volunteers, to delegate, and to build and maintain ministry teams.

    • Develop a godly attitude and witness at all times.

    • Work diligently. Your ministry requires four full days of service, in addition to Sundays and other service and meeting times.
    • Arrive at church at least an hour before service begins, and plan to leave as the final saints depart. When possible, after services stand in the foyer to meet new guests and connect with the congregation.
    • Abide in Christ (John 15:4).


    Our vision is summed up in three words:
    Connect with God and Others in Worship

    Serve the Church and the World & be love with skin-on
