Senior Pastor for Bridgeport Christian Fellowship
Bridgeport Christian Fellowship, an SBC affiliated church, located in Bridgeport, California is seeking a full-time pastor. The town of Bridgeport has a seasonal population of 500-800 people and is situated in the Eastern Sierra, at an elevation of 6500 feet. Although it is located in a naturally beautiful area, it is in a remote, rural setting where medical services and amenities are at least an hour away.

Bridgeport Christian Fellowship is an Elder led church with a congregation of approximately 20 members, and a seasonal attendance that fluctuates between 20-35. Our common goal is to worship and deepen our relationship with the Lord, to understand and pursue God's will, and to encourage others in faith. The current services and ministries are Sunday morning Bible Study, Sunday Worship Service, Wednesday evening Bible Study, a jail ministry, Spanish Bible Study, and community outreach events.  

Our Pastor and Elders are the spiritual leaders of the church and maintain oversight of those performing the corporate duties. The Pastor will meet the Scriptural qualifications of 1 Timothy and Titus. We are seeking a man with a "Pastor's heart" for his congregation and community, being a living example. He will demonstrate his passion for Jesus Christ through his worship, but also through his outreach to the church body and local community, discipleship, counseling and leadership.

Compensation is to be determined and will include use of the parsonage which is adjacent to the church (3 bdrm., 2 1/2 bath, 2 car garage.)

After prayerful consideration, if you sense God's calling, you may submit a resume with your responses to the supplemental questions, and a list of 10 references. Submissions may be sent to either our mailing or email address. Please note that we are seeking a Pastor who personally follows Jesus Christ and the 2000 Baptist Faith and Message.

Use Social Media Reinforcement After Your Sermon - And Before! by Joe Hoagland for Ministrytech.com
Social media is a powerful medium, you can use it to make your Sunday morning preaching more effective and more likely to enact life-change in your congregation. Call it social media reinforcement. Here are some super easy ideas to engage with people about your sermon in the days before or after you actually preach it.

You know the feeling. You spend countless hours preparing a sermon and then you get up to preach. You pour into the congregation for thirty minutes or more and then what?

You added application steps to the sermon. You curated to the best of your ability what you said to your audience but they do not seem to get it. You prayed so hard that the sermon would impact people. But, you do not see the life-change you know Jesus can bring to your congregation.

Message Preview Video

This is something we have started implementing at my church (Rise Church Marion, Oh). It lets people start thinking about what we will be talking about ahead of time. To start implementing this today all you need is a smartphone. Record yourself talking about the upcoming sermon for one to two minutes and just upload it to your church Facebook page.

The Joy We Know Only in Suffering by Marshall Segal for Outreach Magazine

The longer I walk with Jesus, the more I see that sufferers often have secret access to happiness.

I used to think Satan loved suffering, that it was his weapon of choice against our faith. But while he certainly (and viciously) tries to make the most of it, I now suspect Satan secretly hates suffering. He’s simply seen it draw too many people closer to Christ. He has watched, for thousands of years, while God has taken all that he meant for terrible evil and worked it for undeniable good (Gen. 50:20).

The apostle Paul, for instance, was imprisoned over and over, beaten with rods, slandered by his enemies, flogged with lashes five times, stoned almost to death, often deprived of food, water, shelter, and sleep — “in danger from rivers, danger from robbers, danger from my own people, danger from Gentiles, danger in the city, danger in the wilderness, danger at sea, danger from false brothers” (2 Cor. 11:26)—and yet always rejoicing (2 Cor. 6:10). The chief of prisoners could write from the loneliness, injustice, and distress of his cell, “Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice” (Phil. 4:4).

Paul used to seem abnormal and extraordinary, even spectacular. I thought he was an anomaly. Until I began witnessing more and more men and women like him today, braving inconceivable trials—conflict and cancer, betrayal and abandonment, persecution and loss—with surprising joy in God. They prove what we all experience in one way or another. If we look to him when we’re thrown into the wilderness of suffering, he will lead us to secret sanctuaries of peace, strength, hope, and even joy.
