    The bustling township of Maleny is in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, approximately 30 klms from Caloundra’s sandy beaches.  The wider population (Maleny/North Maleny/Witta) is circa 6,000 and although we have many ‘tree changers’, we still feel a little more ‘country’ than our neighbours on the coastal strip.

    Maleny Baptist Church has a long history in the town, starting more than 100 years ago. The original church building was at the top end of town, with the current church premises built on a new site about 1990. Currently, we have 22 members and usually about 35 attend our Sunday services. Since February 23, we have been blessed by the interim ministry of Ps Lester Kelly and his wife, Deanna.

    The church seeks a pastor to live here on the range, who will make strong connections in the community and who will assist the church in its heartfelt desire to reach out with the love of Christ to others. We see need all around us!

    The church seeks someone with:

    • A vital and growing relationship with Jesus
    • A Christlike character with spiritual maturity
    • Strong leadership skills who can both build and lead teams
    • Above all, a strong sense that this is God’s call, to minister in the role of pastor to our church community and beyond.

    Mount Isa Baptist Church is seeking under the guidance of the Holy Spirit a full-time solo/senior pastor to lead our congregation as we fulfil our mission of “Making Jesus known through our local church, regional footprint and global impact”.

    Mount Isa is a remote mining community in North West Queensland. It is a long way from anywhere, amidst a rugged but beautiful landscape. Our community can at times be transient, but we also have a solid stable base of long-term congregation members. Many of our congregants are a long way from “home” and come to count on one another as family.

    Mount Isa Baptist Church is a fellowship of believers that meets corporately once per week. Our church is characterized by conservative evangelical theology and practice. A solid biblical foundation unites our fellowship and underpins our programs. We are deeply invested in children’s ministry and hope to grow that in to flourishing youth and young adult ministry in the coming years. Our church has strong connections to missions locally, regionally and globally. We also have a united desire to grow our evangelism to the unbelievers in our community, recognising significant opportunity for greater engagement in community outreach in the future.

    The pastor we seek will be committed to teaching and preaching that is biblical, application-based and intellectually challenging. We seek a pastor dedicated to the discipleship of all believers and the mentoring and coaching of our up-and-coming leaders. Our pastor is called also to provide pastoral care to our congregation and community.

    Our new Campus Pastor will lead the growth and development of ministry at High Wycombe.

    Riverton Baptist Community Church is a thriving, multi-cultural, multi-generational and soon-to-be, multi-campus church located in Western Australia and online.

    Our vision is to be a biblical, Spirit-led, evangelistic, caring community of all ages and many cultures passionate about growing followers of Jesus. We are seeking expressions of interest from outstanding candidates who share this vision and can mobilise others to strategically achieve it.

    We have recently stepped out in faith to replant a vibrant community of Jesus followers at a campus in High Wycombe, Western Australia. With the recent opening of the High Wycombe train station, a stock of affordable housing, and land for residential development, this foothills region is appealing to young families and set for expansion.

    Our new Campus Pastor will lead the growth and development of ministry at High Wycombe. This will include gathering a launch team, building Christian community, forming ministry teams, and working with these teams to develop outreach to the High Wycombe community and surrounds.

    While the position could certainly be full-time, we are open to considering a candidate who may desire a bi-vocational arrangement, or a theological student who is available part-time while completing their studies.

    With the support of a long-established church, an experienced pastoral team and board, full funding, a motivated and missionally minded church, and a strong sense of the Lord’s direction, we aim to provide the Campus Pastor, and this venture, with every opportunity for success.

    If you would like a better understanding of the context of this opportunity, and to explore the potential for your place in it, we strongly encourage you to first reach out for a confidential conversation with our lead pastor, Wayne Field. Contact can be made via or by calling (08) 9457 6135 during office hours (WST).
