Full time




Applications are invited for this full-time Associate Pastor position. This is a key leadership role in supporting the Senior Pastor to grow the church and its ministries. DVBC is a medium to large faith community in the outer northern suburbs of Melbourne.

As a congregation, we aspire to be a people who love God, love others and make disciples. We are a community of hope and compassion. We recognise that we live in a post Christian context. Being salt and light in a post-Christian world means thinking differently about how we function. If we were starting all over again — with no expectations or history —  what would we dare to do? What would we stop doing? As we gaze over the vast new estates to our north — what would turn things ‘upside down’ for the way of Jesus?

Our objective is to re-imagine ourselves as a regional mission centre which can cultivate, connect and support a diversity of Christ-centred enterprises and communities which embody and proclaim the good news.

The Senior Associate Pastor supports the Senior Pastor in the fulfilling of the church’s mission and provides leadership in a number of agreed church ministry areas.

These ministry areas will be agreed on at the time of appointment and may, if there is mutual agreement, evolve over time. They are likely to include:
  • Generations Ministries.
  • Discipleship and life-skills development
  • Support and training of the creative ministries team.
  • Supporting the Senior Pastor in progressing the Church Vision and Culture.
The successful Candidate will have:
  • A strong spiritual commitment to Jesus Christ and a consistent Godly lifestyle.
  • Significant experience in Baptist (or similar) leadership and a missional ‘heart’.
  • Completed a Bachelor’s Degree level theological study (or approved equivalent) and be ordained, or be able to be ordained into Baptist ministry
  • Proven communication gifting (e.g. teaching, preaching, mentoring).
  • Demonstrated leadership skills; able to mobilise teams, delegate well, support and manage workers (either staff or volunteer). 
  • Proven ability as a well organised self-starter.
  • Proven team player who is able to work in harmony with the church leadership and is committed to the mission, values, and overall strategy of Diamond Valley Baptist Church.
  • Contributes to a staff culture that increasingly embodies excellence and the ethics of servant leadership demonstrated by Christ.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills.
  • Competent administrative, computer and social media capacity.
