Synopsis of the position:

Beginning Point Church began a “reset” of our church fellowship in the Summer of 2017 when we brought in a new senior pastor to revitalize God’s calling upon us as a church to be for His Glory in Southwest Wisconsin.

Since then, we have re-established our identity in the community and we are being led by the Lord to now emphasize outreach to Benton and the surrounding small communities including Hazel Green, Cuba City, Shullsburg and the outlying areas...a population of around 11,000 people.  We are uniquely positioned, being centrally located in this area, as the only church that is preaching the born-again Gospel of the Lord Jesus and fostering a conservative Biblical Kingdom-centered discipleship, based in the literal Truth of God’s Word and a dependency on the Holy Spirit. “The fields are ripe unto harvest” certainly describes our footprint in this area of beautiful Southwest Wisconsin.

Front-and-center of our emphasis is to specifically concentrate on outreach and discipleship to the many new young families and their children who are establishing their new homes and moving into this growing area.

We feel the need now to address this emphasis by bringing aboard a husband and wife team who have it as their shared passion and calling to reach and disciple young families and children for Christ. 

The ideal team would be one where the husband would be gifted in evangelism, preaching and teaching and who would have a real desire and plan in his heart to also reach youth and their parents together for Christ. His wife would be called alongside her husband in the work emphasizing her passion to reach and teach youth and kids for the Lord Jesus.

The elder-led structure of this church is committed to setting this God-called husband and wife team free from most administrative and “personnel concerns” of the congregation in order that they would be supported and empowered to minister with focus upon their passion and calling.

Admittedly, our congregation’s demographic is on the older side, but we do have a core of kids and a few young families that are hungry, serving and engaged. Nonetheless, this position is definitely for a self-starting, vision-driven, entrepreneurial Spirit-filled husband and wife team who can see the future as God imparts His calling on their hearts and minds.

Practically speaking you would be working in concert with the senior pastor in that orientation phase of coming aboard under the direct supervision and support of the elders of our church. You would be encouraged to pray for the Lord’s leading in strategizing and planning outreach and discipleship of young families and youth, including the possibility of starting an after-school ministry reaching out to the Benton School just down the street. 

Regular ministry would be to continue to develop and expand our Wednesday Evening Kid’s Ministry, evangelistic events to reach kids, youth and families for Christ. Oversight, teaching and training related to the youth Sunday School ministry would also be required.

Part of the vision for future expansion of your ministry would include developing a summer camp ministry, Winter retreat and special event calendar for generating forward momentum in the overall ministry.

Future development of special Bible studies and outreach meetings and/or regular gatherings covering parenting and family issues would also be part of this position as the Lord would so lead.
