Description:

Cascade Bible Church (La Pine, OR) – Senior Pastor

The Big Picture

Cascade Bible Church (www.cascadechurch.net) is seeking a Senior Pastor.

The Church

Our current Pastor is retiring after over 30 years of servant leadership. CBC is a non-denominational bible following church that believes God gave pastor/teachers “for the equipping of the saints for the work of service to the building up the body of Christ” (Eph. 4:12)

The Community

La Pine is a welcoming, affordable community; a small frontier town nestled in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains, surrounded by open meadows, lakes and rivers. Strikingly beautiful and with unparalleled access to the wonders of Central Oregon making it the ideal place to work and live. The summers are mildly warm, but a short season. La Pine with its 4,200 feet of elevation is geared more towards those loving colder winters and the adventures that come with living in snow country. Bend, Oregon is the nearest larger town, only 30 miles away for those wanting to take advantage of more shopping opportunities, with a Costco, Walmart and other large retailers. It also has more advanced medical care and facilities. The nearest commercial airport is Redmond, Oregon, just 50 miles away.

The Candidate

The Senior Pastor will successfully impact the ministry in the following five key areas of ministry:

  1. To“preach the Word” (2 Timothy 4:2), teaching, exhorting and refuting those who contradict (1 Timothy 3:2; Titus 1:9-11).
  2. To “shepherd the flock of God” (1 Peter 5:2), watching over each believer in the assembly (Hebrews 13:17), and giving leadership (1 Timothy 3:4-5; Titus 1:6).
  3. To “be examples to the flock” (1 Peter 5:3), consistently modeling Christlike maturity before all men, especially believers (1 Timothy 4:11-12).
  4. To “take care of the church of God” (1 Timothy 3:5), presiding over the local body as an overseer (superintendent) who loves God and His people (1 Peter 5:2).
  5. To pray for the church – “the effective prayer of a righteous man” (James 5:14-15), “being devoted” (Col. 4:2) and doing so “without ceasing” (1 Thess. 5:17).

Specifically, the Senior Pastor Will: Be accountable to the body through:

  1. Ministry of the Word – Truthfully presenting the Word of God on a regular basis (Sunday mornings, Bible studies, etc.), to teach, exhort, encourage, rebuke, comfort, guide, guard and challenge toward obedience, resulting in Christlikeness.
  2. Prayer – Faithfully appealing to and depending upon God alone for the needs of His flock. To spend regular time praying for daily protection, guidance, insight, wisdom, fellowship, outreach and victory over temptation.
  3. Leadership – Boldly providing biblical guidance, vision, oversight and administration to the ministry and function of Cascade Bible Church.
  4. Shepherding – Lovingly caring for the personal needs of the church, by reaching out as a protective shepherd, a nursing mother, a loving father and a sacrificial friend.
  5. Evangelizing – personally sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ through his own life, as well as encouraging the church to do the same in theirs – individually (one on one), corporately (church outreach) and vocationally (full-time ministry).
