We (Calvary Baptist Church) are affiliated with the Baptist General Conference of Canada and we hold to their statement of beliefs. We have been a part of the community for more than 50 years. Our congregation meets regularly on Sundays at 10:30 am for Worship with around 100 in attendance on average. We are a mixture of all ages with notably more young families and seniors. It is our desire to hire someone called to pastor here in this community in the areas of youth and worship (music).

Job Summary:

The purpose of a job description is three-fold:

  1. It gives the church and the Pastor of Youth & Worship an understanding of work expectations.
  2. The job description protects the Pastor of Youth & Worship from being assigned tasks beyond their immediate responsibilities.
  3. The job description also gives the church a specific way to evaluate the work performed by the Pastor of Youth & Worship.  

No job description can cover every situation or circumstance and therefore it is a general guideline and must be interpreted with some flexibility (flexibility for the pastor and flexibility for the church). Feedback from the church board, pastor and lay ministry volunteers will provide the pastor for Youth & Worship with general guidelines for implementing their ministry.
