Posted: June 24. Application deadline: July 30.
The Personnel Committee of First Baptist on Fifth is delighted to begin a search for a Communications Specialist to cultivate and manage the church’s ministry of communications, with focused energies on how we tell the story of our “community in the heart of the city called by Jesus to practice bold love of God and neighbor and boundless compassion for all people.”
The Communications Specialist will serve as a member of a dynamic team of staff at First Baptist Church and collaborate regularly with the pastoral staff, in particular. This three year, possibly renewable, appointment is a new position that reflects the church’s interest in strengthening its communication practices, as well as shaping and expanding its digital presence as part of its ongoing mission and ministry. The Communications Specialist will apply their skills and experience to the unique needs of a congregation seeking to identify, strategize, and develop its communications capabilities. The Communications Specialist will be in attendance at some services and/or events as a way to become better acquainted with the identity of the congregation. The position is ideal for a candidate interested in being at the forefront of an emerging focus in the life of First Baptist Church, while collaborating closely with pastoral staff to develop a vision for the church’s communications. The job will likely shift as it develops, beginning with a focus on evaluating the church’s current digital capacity and maintaining current communications, and gradually including the implementation of new initiatives.
Interested applicants should send a resume and cover letter by Friday, July 30, to our Pastor, Emily Hull McGee, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your interest in our church and this position!
