    Why We Love This Opportunity

    Bowling Green Christian Church is an excellent opportunity for the Youth Pastor looking to work in a relational environment. Bowling Green is located just one hour north of Nashville, offering the best of the little city and the big city life. BGCC is excited to welcome a new staff member to the team.

    About This Organization

    Founded in 1963, BGCC is an independent Christian church aligned with the Restoration Movement. These roots have led BGCC to grow into an inter-denominational church focused on uniting in Christ over the decades. Covid has revealed how truly diverse the congregation of BGCC is in thought.

    BGCC is a congregation comfortable with the diversity of opinion and knows that they are called to unity, not conformity. BGCC is a young congregation with many newlywed couples, young families, and youth joining together in worship. BGCC membership is about 400, with average in-person worship of over 200 every Sunday (over 300 pre-Covid). In 2016 BGCC doubled its facility size when they built the WOC (Worship & Outreach Center) with very little debt. In addition to their contemporary worship service, they have an active Kids’ Place ministry on Sunday mornings. Sunday nights are alive with activity when AWANA (Pre-K – 3rd grade), Bridge (4th & 5th grades), and Student Ministry (6th – 12th grades) meet. Throughout the week, BGCC has Community Groups meeting in people’s homes or at the church campus.

    The future is bright for BGCC and the student ministries.

    Position Description

    RELATIONAL

    BGCC’s culture is highly relational. A successful candidate will be able to convey warmth and sincerity as they cultivate relationships with students and families.

It will be important that this new leader has a high EQ (Emotional Intelligence), knowing themselves and how to relate to others.

    COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

    Finding ways to be involved in the community is a high priority for BGCC. One of the ways that previous Youth Pastors have gotten involved is through the local schools.

    DISCIPLESHIP-FOCUSED

    DIVERSITY OF THOUGHT

    At BGCC, there is a high value placed on appreciating the different views of people from different theological backgrounds.

    LEADER OF LEADERS

    SOLID FOUNDATION

    The new Youth Pastor will have the opportunity to build upon a solid foundation and a group of students with a strong community while also reaching out to people who don’t yet know Jesus.
