Overflow Church Medowie is seeking a passionate and dedicated Lead Pastor to join and lead our growing church community.


Who We Are

At Overflow, we’re committed to the dynamic headship of Jesus Christ, which means that we believe in and seek Jesus to actively lead His Church.

As a community, we view ourselves as a ‘renewal’ Baptist Church: that is, open to the full expression of all the ministry of the Holy Spirit as found in the New Testament, and continuously seeking the Holy Spirit’s renewing work. We actively encourage our members to be continually filled with the Holy Spirit and become instruments of God’s love, power, and authority. We believe that this is how we can make a difference in the world.

We intentionally choose relationship over religion, mercy over judgement, and freedom over law. As a community, we’re constantly seeking to embody these values and live them out in all aspects of our lives.
