Reporting to the Chair of the Elder Team, the Senior Pastor will provide compelling teaching of Scripture and take on a visible leadership role at the Sunday evening service.  The Senior Pastor will shepherd the congregation by providing pastoral care and partnering with the Elder Team and other leaders in using spiritual discernment to guide the future direction of the church. The Senior Pastor will help the church lean into life with Jesus and live out CWOW's mission.

The Senior Pastor will draw upon the varied and deep leadership and ministry background of the Elder Team and membership at large to implement various church programs and events.
 
The growing number of regular attenders in the church are not only racially diverse, but also in a wide variety of places in their journey with Jesus.  In conjunction with the welcoming team and elders, the Senior Pastor will engage regular attenders and welcome visitors, suggesting opportunities they might consider for further involvement in the life of the church.

Full time
Norfolk, VA United States

The Campaign Director will set up, help lead and administrate, and follow-up evangelistic campaigns in countries around the world, such as Pakistan, India, Kenya, Tanzania, and many others.  He will work with pastors and other leaders in cities to set up meetings attended by tens of thousands of people, in order to win many to Christ and organize effective, on-going discipleship, especially in many of the least-reached nations in the world.

This position requires a whole-hearted commitment to Jesus Christ and a deep desire to obey His command to "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations" (Matt. 28:29).  Furthermore, it requires a complete dedication to New Fire for Christ.  This position is demanding and full-time, which means above and beyond 40+ hours a week! It also requires working with the staff of New Fire for Christ to raise the funds necessary to pay your salary and ministry costs.

We are looking for a humble, yet confident, young man who is willing to travel, devote his life to bringing people to Christ.  

This young man would be working closely with Dr. Bob Boyd a phenomenal evangelist and charismatic person.  He graduated from the College of William and Mary.  As a senior in college, Bob met Christ in a dramatic encounter that transformed his life.  Called to the ministry, he attended Dallas Theological Seminary and he earned his doctorate in Biblical Preaching at Asbury Seminary.  He was a pastor of a growing church on the “Walton’s Mountain” of TV fame.  Then Campus Crusade for Christ International invited Bob to join its staff as a National Speaker.  After 12 years with Cru Bob and his wife, Mallory began the Bob Boyd Evangelism Association in 1997 (now New Fire for Christ).  Dr. Boyd and the team now lead large city-wide and university-wide evangelistic campaigns around the world.  Bob has spoken to millions of people in these campaigns, but also on the radio and on TV.  Countless thousands have become active Disciples of Christ because of his passion to follow the Great Commission and truly walk in the footsteps of Paul.  Bob and Mallory have four sons and live in Norfolk, VA.
