The Big Picture
Northwest Bible Church (northwestbible.com) is a Gospel centered, Bible teaching church of 300 in Tucson, AZ, prayerfully seeking a Worship Pastor who will oversee all aspects of the gathered worship, including leading and organizing all volunteers and functions related to worship.
Our mission is to celebrate the Gospel, connect as a church, and contribute to the mission. To celebrate the Gospel means that we gather on Sunday mornings to draw our attention to the Gospel through worship, confession of sins, sermons, baptism, and communion. We gather and celebrate the Gospel with all ages from our nursery through 5th graders, middle school and high school students, and adults. To connect as a church means that we focus our energies on gathering people in small groups on a weekly basis throughout the year to seek to connect the story of Christ with our own stories. In these groups we study the bible, pray and discuss how we are experiencing growth spiritually together. To contribute to the mission means that we are using our gifts, talents and resources to share the Gospel with others. Specifically, we support the Global Training Network that provides training to pastors in Africa, who then once trained, plant new churches.
