Bribie Island Church of Christ is a small but active congregation, it commenced in 1975 and is located at 42 Foley Street, Bongaree, Bribie Island, 80 kms north of Brisbane, Queensland. Congregation attendees live on Bribie Island and in the immediate surrounding areas on the mainland. There are three schools on the Island and others within a reasonable distance. The church is associated with and surrounded by a Churches of Christ campus that consists of an Aged Care facility, a large Retirement Village, a large and developing Low Cost Housing community and the management of a permanent resident caravan park.

We believe that the overall responsibility of Bribie Island Church of Christ is to assist God to fulfil His fundamental purposes and desires. We believe they are : praise & worship, mission, spiritual growth & transformation, and fellowship.

Our church motto is to: - Love God and love others

We currently have an Interim Pastor bridging the gap between the previous ministry and the calling of a fulltime Pastor commencing early 2022.

To achieve our responsibility and purpose, we are seeking a person who will support existing ministries and lead the congregation in connecting with the wider community. We have recently been experiencing an increase in attendance and have not lost any attendees as a result of the COVID period of church disruption.

The current congregation is between 50 and 60 attendees and consists mainly of seniors. We anticipate the Pastor would support existing ministries and programs and the weekly service, offer Pastoral Care and help move the church from a predominantly seniors church towards a youth and family church, whilst continuing to embrace seniors.

We anticipate that the major areas of responsibility will include:

  • Pastoral Care.
  • Outreach into the community leading to the establishment of a vibrant expression of Christian lifestyle and worship.
  • Preaching, Teaching Praying and Worship Leading
  • Continue to link a close relationship with other Churches of Christ facilities and programs within the Bribie Campus.

We are looking for a Pastor and Leader who will fulfil the following core criteria:

  • Deep and ongoing personal relationship with Christ and reliance on His Spirit.
  • Identify with the vision, values and mission of this church.
  • A proven track record of effective contemporary ministry and mission within a local community.
  • Awareness of their strengths and ability to utilise the strengths of others to complement their weaknesses.
  • Appropriate theological training is vital as is familiarity with the ethos of Churches of Christ.
  • Applicants must already have the right to live and work in Australia.

The successful applicant will be required to possess a Blue Card; have a National Police Record check; sign the Churches of Christ Queensland Code of Conduct for Ministering persons; and be eligible to obtain a Churches of Christ Ministering Person Accreditation.


  • This will be a fulltime position allowing for flexible use of the hours with salary and conditions based on the recommendation of Churches of Christ Queensland.
  • The person has the opportunity to join the cohort of pastors from Churches of Christ Queensland as a wider network.
  • Commencement date: 16th January 2022 or by arrangement.

Aplication process:

  • The resume should address the Key Result Areas as outlined in the Job Position Statement.
  • Expressions of interest, your resume (including the names and contact details of 2 referees) or any questions should be directed to the Bribie Island Church of Christ Chairman, Roger Bawden, at, telephone 0404 490 031.

Closing date for applications: 1st October 2021
