1 ABOUT ROUND ROCK CHURCH OF CHRIST RRCOC is a Christ-centered, outsider-oriented church in Round Rock, TX (just outside of Austin) devoted to a simple and challenging mission: To live love. We take seriously Christ s call to reach those who are far from God, and we continually seek out ways to bring our practices into alignment with that priority. Our Sunday attendance averages around 375, with approximately 70% of our adults involved in small groups that meet in homes throughout the week. Though our member demographics are varied, we re a church that skews younger in age and continues to grow in that direction. As one of the Ministers, you d be joining a team of 5 other ministers / staff and 8 elders, all of whom see themselves as partners in pursuing the same vision. On the subsequent pages, you will find three available ministry roles: Student, Connections, and Worship. We believe the Student Ministry requires the equivalent of a full time job, while the Worship and Connections Ministries are each part-time roles (but together require the equivalent of a full time job). Thus we plan to hire two ministers to fulfill these three roles. We are not strictly tied to hiring a Student Minister as one job and hiring a Connections/Worship Minister for the other job. If God leads to us a Student/Connections Minister and a Student/Worship Minister, that would be wonderful. So if you feel strongly blessed to be any of these Ministers: Student Minister; Connections/Worship Minister; Student/Connections Minister; and/or Student/Worship Minister, please let us know your desire(s). In Him, The Elders of Round Rock Church of Christ

2 Student Minister Round Rock Church of Christ Location: Round Rock, Texas Work Status: Full time (or about half time when coupled with Worship or Connections Minister Responsibilities) Description Overview The chief responsibility of the Student Minister is catalyzing Spirit-led transformation in students (6 th through 12 th grade) through inspirational teaching and leading. This includes encouraging the students to be more active in their personal walk with Jesus, our church body, and the community. The Student Minister should be a fully devoted follower of Jesus, passionate about God s Word, grace-oriented, comfortable in leading small and large groups, active in equipping leaders, and able to collaborate with others. He / she should see the role as partnering with parents in the spiritual development of their children, equipping and assisting the family to that end. Summary of Responsibilities Student Relationship and Responsibilities Teach and model the way of Christ in various contexts Provide curriculum and recruit teachers for the student classes, small groups, gatherings. Teach Bible classes and be a resource/mentor to other teachers. Inspire Christ followers with Biblically sound lessons, backed by personal life stories and applications, to motivate, encourage and convict the students.

Stay abreast of current ministry trends in the world wide Body of Christ including from different traditions, bringing the best to RRCOC (through research, personal experience, conferences, etc.). While the parents are not a direct responsibility of the Student Minister, the ministry should provide opportunities for parents to engage and share in the ministry for the benefit of the students. Staff Relationship and Responsibilities Support and work with the staff and volunteer leaders to accomplish individual and shared responsibilities. Identify and help initiate action needed to further accomplish the church s mission. Participate in and support other staff-led ministry events (including possibly volunteering to lead aspects of the event, as it seems appropriate and helpful; i.e. no job is too small ).

Success for the Connections Ministry is for first-time attenders, regardless of where they may be on their journey of faith, to become committed disciples of Christ who are strongly connected to our church and committed to our mission to Live love. A large aspect of this ministry is to collaboratively lead RRCOC s Small Groups ministry. The Connections Minister should be a fully devoted follower of Jesus, passionate about God s Word, graceoriented, comfortable in leading small groups, skilled at leading teams to accomplish shared objectives, highly organized and detail-oriented, active in identifying and developing others to lead different aspects of the ministry, comfortable with trying new things, energized by spending time with others, and able to collaborate with others.
