We have three available ministry roles:  Student, Connections, and Worship.  We believe the Student Ministry requires the equivalent of a full time job, while the Worship and Connections Ministries are each part-time roles (but together require the equivalent of a full time job).  Thus we plan to hire two ministers to fulfill these three roles.  We are not strictly tied to hiring a Student Minister as one job and hiring a Connections/Worship Minister for the other job.  If God leads to us a Student/Connections Minister and a Student/Worship Minister, that would be wonderful.

A detailed job description for these roles, as well as instructions on how to apply, are posted at www.RRCOC.org/jobs
