Vacancy: Church worker

About us:

The BGV is a small evangelical congregation in Northern Limburg, founded in 1995. A hall and a meeting room in community center De Kemphaan is rented for the Sunday services. Generally, 40 to 60 adults visit the service, including asylum seekers and students of a local bible college. A fair share of the visitors take part in one of the three regional care groups. In 2015, the congregation joined the Alliance of CAMA and Baptist congregations (ABC) in the Netherlands. Because of the variety in nationalities, the service is translated into English (using headsets). In the past 5 years, the congregation did not employ a pastor or paid worker.
