The International Baptist Church of Zurich (IBCZ), an English-speaking Christian fellowship located in Rüschlikon, near Zurich in Switzerland, is seeking a dynamic full time Pastor Elder.

We are a growing, family oriented church with a congregation drawn from numerous countries, cultures and religious backgrounds.

The ideal man for this position will be called by God, be spirit filled, a pastor, a friend and a shepherd who is approachable and hospitable with strong interpersonal and shepherding skills and a heart for reaching people with diverse backgrounds.

He should be a mature believer who is extremely fluent in English and who has a passion for God and His Word, is well grounded in doctrine, having received formal theological training and who is experienced and gifted in teaching the Word of God.

Complementary attributes would include having strong organizational skills, the ability to lead and develop leaders, be passionate about worship and have the skills to lead our growing church in worship. International experience as a Pastor would also be advantageous.

The successful candidate will naturally have been Baptized upon his confession of faith in Jesus Christ as his own personal saviour.  He will be compensated according to local terms and conditions and not based on an expatriate formula. Note that legislation would require him to undertake German lessons and thereby to gain a measure of proficiency in the language.
