Missions and Overseas Ministry
Pastor of Spiritual Development
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 Spiritual Development
Our Pastor of Spiritual Development will join IBC as we create a disciple-making culture for every generation to grow in knowing and following Jesus. He will be intentional in getting to know the unique environment of our international body, created by the mix of people, gifts, and contexts in order to implement disciple-making best practices which will lead our people to catch the vision and mission of disciple-making in the home, community, and the world. He will develop core teams of highly motivated people that desire to join God in His disciple-making work corporately. Responsibilities include:
- Journeying with our people and modeling disciple-making sustainably so that they can become healthy disciple-makers in every season
- Streamlining and developing organizational elements including training seminars, leadership development workshops, growing deeper programs, and targeted conferences as the structure for disciple-making environments.
- Mobilizing and recruiting multi-generational ministry partners to implement disciple-making practices in our age-specific ministries and our families.
- Design a pathway for leaders to be nurtured and developed by providing opportunities that will require them to learn and grow.
