Description:

What we are about:
IBC’s vision begins with an invitation: come, as one beloved by God, into the life-giving pursuit of a deepening relationship with Jesus Christ. As an international church in an international city, we declare that no matter where you are from, you are welcome here. Join us as we sojourn together in living out authentic faith in genuine community. Journey with us as we meet together to laugh and cry, build one another up in the family and the marketplace, and serve our community with mercy, love, and justice. Believers from over 55 different nations have found their home in our IBC family and we invite you to be a part of this unique opportunity to experience a global community fulfilling the global commission.

The uniqueness of our location:
IBC is located in Singapore, which is often referred to as the “Antioch of Asia.” Not only is Singapore consistently ranked near the top of the best global cities in the world, but nearly 1/3 of the total workforce consists of foreigners who live and work in Singapore. Singapore is filled with a high concentration of globally-minded, entrepreneurial, and adventurous people from all over the globe. Furthermore, Singapore is the hub of Southeast Asia, within a few hours’ flight of many diverse people groups. Being in Singapore allows IBC to have an outsized impact not only in Singapore but throughout the entire region.

What we’re looking for:
We are looking for people who are life-long learners who are not afraid of taking risks for the Kingdom of God. We are looking for people who do not know it all but have the vulnerability and humility to learn together with one another. People who are willing to journey and grow and engage with those who are different than them. To thrive at IBC, previous experience serving in a multi-ethnic or international congregation is highly recommended. A theological degree is also required (MDiv preferred). Join us in being global disciple-makers for God’s kingdom.

Specific Opportunity: Pastor of Koinonia (Connection/Community)
Our Pastor of Koinonia is someone that will continue to help IBC live an authentic community that serves, laughs, prays, seeks deeper, and experiences grace together. He is someone who has a heart for both the insider and the outsider. This person will know the importance of welcome, but also helping people find belonging and connection. This person loves people as they are but draws them to connect deeper with God and the community of faith. Specific responsibilities include:

  • Journeying with our people to model a community where everyone is seen, welcomed, and valued.
  • Designing and developing processes of connecting guests and members to a genuine sense of belonging, involvement, and spiritual growth by meeting them where they are and inviting them to the next step
  • Facilitating deeper relationships within the community by leading people to engage with the range of community groups that best fit their context
  • Building structures and systems where connected people can flourish and have opportunities to serve the larger community.
