Faith Community Church, Blackfalds, AB

October 12, 2018

blackfalds 1.PNGFaith Community Church (FCC) is a small church of roughly 50 people affiliated with Associated Gospel Churches (AGC). Our current Pastor is retiring after more than 30 years total ministry service, 13 of those spent birthing and growing this church plant. We are looking for a new part-time Pastor to shepherd us through our next stage of life.

Blackfalds is nestled in Central Alberta right on Highway 2, 10 minutes north of Red Deer. A Town census was just completed this June with the official number being 10,125 residents. 65% of the residents are under the age of 40, with 30% being under the age of 20. 11% of the residents are under the age of 5. As you can tell by the numbers, Blackfalds is a young community. There are plenty of parks and trails, Recreation Centre, skate park, bike skills park and a dog park. Many businesses are here with more on the way and Regional bus transit is available.

As mentioned above, FCC is currently a small church. The congregation is mixed in terms of various demographics and has been in the community for 13 years this September. We are one of 4 churches in the community and we own our own building right in the downtown core. FCC participates with the other churches in joint initiatives within the community. Such events include Blackfalds Days and Remembrance Day. Our current Missions objectives include sponsoring a refugee family to move to Blackfalds and supporting a smaller church in the neighbouring community of Penhold.

What FCC is looking for is a Pastor who is passionate about evangelism, near and far. Willing to have compassionate care for the church and follow up on the new comers. We want someone who preaches and teaches from the Bible. You must be personable, outgoing, and willing to be part of the community.
