Thank you for your interest in TRBC'S Pastor-Teacher opening!
Located in the heart of the beautiful Clearwater River Valley, TRBC is a growing congregation of some seventy-five folks of all ages. We rent a community center to which we have unlimited access throughout the week in the town of Stites (population 209). As a Reformed Baptist congregation in a rural area, we are largely a destination church drawing households from as far away as a 90-minute drive. However, most of our people live in the small neighboring towns of Kooskia, Kamiah, Clearwater, and Harpster.
Our people delight in the pleasures of small-town living. These include quaint mom and pop shops, home businesses, family farms, and the joy of close relationships with neighbors. When someone has a need, many folks step up and pitch in to help by combining their energies, resources, and skills.
Summers are an especially fun and busy season in the region. From Riggins to Orofino and beyond, families enjoy jetboat races, rodeos, county fairs, horse pulls, combine derbies, auctions, lumberjack shows, community dances, farmer's markets, and more. Grangeville even has a drive-in movie theater! People also enjoy the beauty of Idaho while morrell hunting, huckleberry and blackberry picking, gardening, fishing, hiking, four wheeling, horseback riding, rafting, floating the river, swimming, or even just going for a drive to take in the breathtaking scenic views.
The Clearwater River Valley has everything necessary for everyday living at the local grocery, hardware, auto parts, specialty, and thrift stores. There is an excellent community library, a variety of restaurants, and newly remodeled medical clinic. For a greater number of service and shopping options, people travel less than a two-hour drive along the beautiful Clearwater river to the Lewis Clark Valley area and visit Lewiston, Idaho (population 32,664) and Clarkston, Washington (population 7,381). These two border towns, separated by the Snake River, boast a large variety of shopping, dining, and entertainment options--including Home Depot, Costco, WalMart, Red Lobster, Applebees and numerous fast food outlets.
TRBC is presently searching for a vocational pastor who will teach and preach the Word of God, co-labor as an elder among a plurality of elders serving the church, and offer pastoral care as a shepherd of the flock (Acts 20:28; Ephesians 4:11-12; 1 Peter 5:1-4). Lord willing, we hope to see this position filled by no later than September of 2022.
The following information will help familiarize you with the ministry opportunity we have available.
