|Church or Org Description *|
|Since 1983, New Beginnings Baptist Church has been growing and reaching families in the Longview area. This growth has brought about exciting changes, additions in their ministries and additions to the staff over the years. Three years ago, they launched their multisite strategy with the opening of a second campus in Gilmer, TX. One year ago, expansion happened on their Spring Hill campus with the completion of a beautiful new worship center facility. God continues to bless the church and an average of 2100 people now worship at New Beginnings each weekend. Over the last few years, they have now become the fastest growing church in their region.
The vision of New Beginnings is to become an Authentic Biblical Community that transforms their city and impacts the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The church is intentional about living out their mission to Gather in Worship, Grow in Community, Go on Mission, and Give to the Kingdom. Worship services are modern in style, engaging, holistic, and gospel-centered. Their vision for Biblical community and missional mindset is fostered in Life Groups where people of the church do life together and serve the people of their city through strategic partnerships.
|Position Description *|
|At New Beginnings, the spiritual and relational health of the staff is a priority. The staff culture here is described by some as the healthiest they’ve been a part of. They love having fun together, so chemistry and the relational connection are important to them. In fact, East Texas culture is highly relational, so it is vitally important that the new Global Worship Pastor have strong interpersonal relationship skills.
The Global Worship Pastor will have direct oversight of all things related to the worship ministry and culture across all campuses while being the primary worship leader on the Spring Hill campus. All Campus Worship Pastors will have a dotted line relationship to the new leader for the purposes of worship direction, support and resourcing. The worship ministry has grown considerably recently and is in good health with strong unity between the campuses, intentionality among the people, and authenticity both on and off the stage. While strong platform skills are important, the new leader must also be relational from the stage. Production is not valued here as highly as relational connection and authenticity. Because this is a high-level role, the new hire should be able to lead and organize teams effectively.
