ABC Baytown is delighted to extend you the invitation to serve with us as our Outreach Pastor with the eventual goal of launching as a church planter. We believe the Holy Spirit has brought us together in partnership for this important season of life and ministry.
As the Outreach Pastor, you will be responsible to work with the elders under the direction of the Lead Pastor in the areas of outreach and church mobilization. We expect and invite you to shape this position in a way that best expands the Kingdom of Christ in our city, furthers the mission of ABC Baytown, and best prepares for you for service as a church planter in the future. Pastor Justin and our elders will collaborate with you in the coming weeks to finalize a job description.
The compensation available for this position is $30,000 for a two-year period with the option of an additional another year if needed. This comes with the understanding and agreement that this is necessarily a bi-vocational position for you. Pastor Justin and our Administrative Committee will work with you in the coming weeks to allocate these funds in a way that most blesses you and suits the needs of your family. We will then finalize a compensation package based upon these conversations.
We expect to seek counsel from and work with Eddie DeJesus of the Alliance South Central for additional guidance and ongoing help in the area of fundraising, designating funds, obtaining grants, and other possible avenues which may aid our efforts at supporting you and our future church planting endeavors.
This position does not come with any benefits. However, we have allocated $5,000 for helping with re-location expenses for your move from Las Vegas. We also want to work with you on providing manpower to help you and your family move and get happily settled into your residence.
The tentative start date for this position is August 1, 2021. Please confirm your intentions to accept our offer by signing and returning this letter. We are excited about serving with you and are trusting our Father for His gracious hand of guidance and sovereignty in this partnership which He has superintended.
yours in Christ,
Rev. Justin DuBose
Lead Pastor, ABC Baytown
