College/Young Adult Minister

Calvary Baptist Murfreesboro

Job Description

Calvary Baptist Church is a contemporary, dynamic and growing church in Murfreesboro, TN. Our goal is to create an environment where Jesus Christ is worshipped and an abundant harvest of leaders are developed who will develop more and more leaders for the sake of the gospel.


ABOUT OUR CITY

Murfreesboro is just 30 miles SE of Nashville and home to Middle Tennessee State University, the largest undergraduate university in the state. With over 25,000 students at MTSU, and with 12,000+ public and private school students within 4 miles of our church, our church is primed for reaching those without Christ for years to come. We view the MTSU campus as a primary venue for reaching the lost and developing dozens of future ministry leaders to serve around our state and the world.

The Boro is also one of the fastest-growing cities in the United States. Ranked by Money magazine as a top 20 “Best Places to Live in the US”, our city has grown from just under 60,000 residents to over 150,000 residents in the last twenty years. Over that same time period, more than a thousand housing units have been built within four miles of our church and Murfreesboro is expected to continue that type of growth over the next decade. By 2025, Murfreesboro is projected to grow past Knoxville and Chattanooga as the 3rd largest city in TN.


ABOUT OUR CALVARY CHURCH FAMILY

CBC was planted just 20 years ago and now rests on 40 acres of property in the center of the growth of the Boro. We added a new pastor in 2020 and have experienced significant growth in attendance and giving during his tenure. According to Thom Rainer s national research, Calvary is one of the < 2% of US churches who have grown substantially during the pandemic. In fact, we have more than doubled in attendance (from approximately 260 to 500-600 on an average Sunday morning). Discipleship group participation has increased, more than tripled. We expect to continue to grow at a similar rate and eventually plant other congregations. Great things are happening at CBC!

Additionally, we have just invested over $150k in worship center equipment upgrades and are about to embark on a building expansion project that will increase our meeting space by 50%. We are also adjacent to a soon-to-be-built $10 million high school athletic facility that will bring thousands of unchurched families to our church property.


ABOUT THE MINISTRY POSITION

We view the campus of MTSU as one of our prime mission fields. At the heart of a sending church philosophy, we want to win students to Christ, build them up in Christ, and send them out to reach others for Christ. Due to our increased attendance and giving (budget is up 50% in one year), we are able to afford this new full-time position.


The Minister to Young Adults and College students will focus on reaching and developing his area of ministry but will work within the overall framework of the church. He will be considered a member of the senior staff and be directly discipled by the senior pastor for theological, personal, and professional development. Please watch our services online to get a feel for what we are trying to do and who we are trying to reach. While we are intentionally a multi-generational church, we are fully committed to doing whatever we have to do to reach the most prominent demographic in Murfreesboro, 18-28 year olds. We currently have around 20 students involved in this ministry but with this full-time position and the potential around us, we expect it to grow to 50-100 in the next couple of years.


Salary is $55,000-$65,000 plus full benefits. This could increase based on family need. Experience working with college students is a major plus. As with every other full-time position in the church, about 80% of what your job duties will be focused on your particular area of ministry and 20% will be focused on overall church health. Our motto is #Calvarychurchfamily and that influences everything we do.


Applicants should include a cover letter, resume, and a recent teaching video. We thank you for your interest and pray God will grant us both wisdom in finding the right person for the right ministry calling.
