Job Opportunities Posted in January

Valley Bible Fellowship Church is in search of a new pastor.

Valley Bible Fellowship Church, located in Lagrangeville, in the Hudson Valley region of New York
State, is seeking a pastor to come and lead the congregation.
Lagrangeville (or more accurately, Union Vale) is a rural community of 4,500 people that seeks to
retain its small town atmosphere, despite the trend of families moving into the area from the New
York City area. A few members of the congregation commute daily to their job in the city. The rural
atmosphere of the area is seen in that Dutchess County has the highest number of horses of any
county in New York State. There are still working farms in the town, including one just down and
across the street from the church. There are also three to four gun clubs in the town, including one
bordering right behind the church. Eagles and hawks perching in nearby trees often draw interested
bird-watchers to the church parking lot. Many of the newer homes in town are quite large, as the
town zoning law requires a 5 acre minimum to build a new home. As a result, the affluence of
families in the town is rising. Because it is a small town, it relies heavily on volunteers for
government services. It is one of only a few communities in the county who still maintain both a
volunteer fire company and a volunteer ambulance squad.
The congregation itself numbers about 30-35 people on an average Sunday. For a small
congregation, it is surprisingly diverse ethnically and culturally, with several families from a Hispanic
background. The ministry of the church also seeks to provide for several in the congregation who are
hearing disabled or deaf. An ASL interpreter is present at each Sunday worship service, and closed
captioning is provided for other services and meetings. A majority of the congregation are in their
60’s or older, but there are two families with children – a 5 year old boy, and two girls, 12 and 14
years old. The members of the church are also exceptionally faithful and generous in their
stewardship, and also have a willingness to serve where they are able and gifted. One member ran a
food pantry ministry, “To God Be the Glory” out of a refrigerated van for several years. He recently
passed away, and members of the congregation are continuing that ministry which helps provide
food to area churches and food pantries.
Despite the diversity within the congregation, they are united, and many have been attracted to the
church, by their desire and longing for sound Biblical preaching and teaching. During the present
pastor’s tenure, the length of messages usually run between 35 and 45 minutes. The worship service
also is Bible-focused and God-glorifying, with the music, prayers and testimonies all striving to bring
the worshippers into the presence of the Lord.
The congregation is just about evenly divided between the older faithful members, some of whom
have been with the church for decades, and newer families who have joined the church in just the
past five years or less. There is a committed love expressed for one another through prayer and acts
of caring. Over the past couple of years, the Benevolence Fund has given thousands of dollars to
members facing financial crises, as well as lesser amounts to those outside the congregation asking
for assistance.
The church meets in an old, historic building that celebrates 150 years of ministry in the “Clove” this
coming year, though part of the building is nearly 200 years old. The church also owns a mortgagefree 3-bedroom parsonage about 3 miles away from the church building.
Contact elders Charles Webb (CharlesWebb7@verizon.net ) or Tom Ward (TWard109@gmail.com)
for further information.

Overview
MANNA CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP (Manna) is a dynamic and vibrant evangelical,
inter-denominational chaplaincy at Princeton University focused on thoughtfully engaging the
pluralistic university community with a coherent worldview grounded in the Christian gospel.
Manna seeks a qualified individual to manage aspects of this thriving organization of
approximately 90 students. Under the auspices of Manna’s Executive Director, the Women’s
Senior Ministry Fellow would work closely with Manna’s multiple (typically 2-4) full- and part-time
staff in developing a robust ministry that that empowers students to appreciate the holistic
implications of the gospel of Jesus Christ for all of life, including their vocations and studies. The
ideal candidate would possess demonstrated ministry leadership in campus contexts. The
majority, though not all, of Manna’s constituents are from Korean- and other Asian-American
backgrounds. The SMF must have a familiarity and sensitivity towards these cultural nuances.
The Women’s Senior Ministry Fellow will also be responsible for evaluating the ministry on a
regular basis and reporting to the Executive Director and the Board of Trustees.

Responsibilities
The responsibilities of the Women’s Senior Ministry Fellow (SMF) fall into three categories:
Spiritual Development, Campus Engagement, and Administration. It is anticipated that roughly
ninety (90) percent of the SMF’s time will be spent doing spiritual development and campus
engagement.
1. Spiritual Development:
• Women’s Ministry – The SMF will cultivate and oversee opportunities for the women in Manna
to grow spiritually, vocationally, and relationally through both women-only and gender-inclusive
avenues such as bible studies, social gatherings, theological discussions, discipleship
relationships, and counseling sessions.
• Large Group Leadership and Teaching – The SMFs shall be responsible, along with the
Executive Director, for Manna’s weekly Saturday night large group meetings. The SMFs will
oversee the Saturday night program, including the flow of worship and ministry segments.
Although the Executive Director will serve as the primary large group preacher, the SMFs should
expect to assume teaching duties 2-4 times each semester. Messages should be 25-30 minutes
in length and should focus primarily upon biblical exegesis with a gospel hermeneutic. These
messages should challenge the students both spiritually and intellectually in a manner
contextualized to Princeton students.
• Small Group Ministries – The SMF will oversee Manna’s small groups. They will be expected
to lead 1-2 groups in conjunction with student leaders, and support staff and student leaders as
needed. The SMF should ensure that the class-based curricula and topical teaching content for
small groups are effective and biblically sound.
• Retreats – Manna hosts a fall retreat (with an average attendance of 70 students) and a
second retreat, community outreach project, or a similarly scaled project in the spring. The SMF
will oversee the retreats/project, including budget, speaker, and logistics.
• Discipleship – The SMF shall disciple appropriate members of the staff and students, as well
as oversee the Manna discipleship program.
• Counseling – The SMF shall also serve as a counselor to students as needs arise. The
majority of Manna’s constituents are from Asian and Asian-American backgrounds. The SMF
should have a familiarity and sensitivity towards these cultural nuances.
• Ministry Oversight – The SMF will oversee additional aspects of Manna’s programming,
including our interns, student leadership team, community events, and training materials.
2. Campus Engagement:
• Public Lecture Series – The SMF shall, with the consultation of Manna alumni and staff, invite
1-3 guest speakers during the academic year to engage the campus on relevant issues.
• Cross Fellowship Unity – The SMF shall also serve as a liaison to the Office of Religious Life
and to the other chaplaincies on campus seeking to promote unity of the body without
compromising the purity and integrity of the gospel and Manna’s witness on campus.
3. Administration:
• Yearly Updates – Each quarter, the SMF shall be responsible for delivering an update to the
board, alumni and advisors on the progress of the ministry.
• Oversight of Staff – The SMF shall preside over weekly meetings with staff and student
leaders to facilitate good communication amongst the leaders of Manna.
• Fundraising – While the position has a guaranteed salary, the SMF is expected to raise 50% of
their salary through personal fundraising, and support the Manna Executive Director and Board
in organizational development efforts as needed. Manna Christian Fellowship will support the
SMF personal fundraising campaign with training and other support.

Qualifications
Candidates should have at least 4 years of relevant experience, preferably with campus ministry
experience. They must be spiritually mature Christians with a devotion to the Scriptures and
prayer, modeling excellence in their personal and vocational life, with demonstrated gifts in
spiritual leadership and mentoring. Manna values its community orientation and the Senior
Ministry Fellow should be able to foster a grace-centered community through active involvement
in the lives of the students. Other necessary qualities include: fast learner, excellent written and
verbal communication skills, proactive in every aspect of the position, passion for the university
and students, and intellectual grasp of the strategic role of the university in our culture.
Bachelor’s degree is required. Masters-level degree in theology, ministry, or counseling is also
preferred, with a firm grasp and appreciation for applying the gospel to every part of life and
culture and an openness to and/or ability to navigate the Reformed theological categories which
have shaped the fellowship. Evidence of counseling abilities is also required.
Compensation will be salaried (with some fundraising expectations) and competitive and
commensurate with experience and training. Located in Princeton, NJ.
Interested applicants should send a cover letter and resume to manna@princeton.edu
