The teaching/preaching elder will serve on the Council of Elders along with the existing elders. The Council of Elders provides leadership to the local church (GBC) and ensures that the teachings presented by the church are biblically sound. The teaching/preaching elder will be primarily responsible for preparing and preaching an expository sermon on Sunday morning (one or two services). The teaching/preaching elder will meet weekly and as needed with the Council of Elders to discuss issues and make decisions regarding the life of the church body. The teaching/preaching elder will be an equal voting member of the Council of Elders, but will be "first among equals" in the area of teaching/preaching. We are unable to offer a salary at this time, but it is expected that this position will become a full-time paid position as the Lord provides.

Read and commit to the GBC “What we believe” statement posted on the GBC website under “Who We Are.” 3. Bible college degree, OR seminary degree, OR five years or more experience in a pastor/teacher position at a church or parachurch organization, OR equivalent combination of formal education and teaching/preaching experience. 4. Once selected, residence in the Houston/Galveston metro area. 5. Must be able to support self financially until the church experiences enough growth to provide a full-time salary.
