Location, Church, and Ministry Overview

Wasilla Bible Church (WBC) is an established church located in Wasilla, Alaska.
Wasilla is approximately an hour drive north of the largest and most populated city in Alaska, Anchorage.
Wasilla sits within the Matanuska-Susitna Borough (the Valley) that is made up of other towns, including Sutton, Palmer, Wasilla, Big Lake, Houston, Willow, and Talkeetna.
This area is roughly the size of West Virginia and is home to just over 100,000 people spread throughout.

WBC has been gathered and serving in this area for just under 50 years.
We gather on Sundays with a worship attendance of approximately 650 adults and 200 kids/students.
As an established church, our demographics range from toddlers to seniors, with the bulk of the church made up of families with kids.
The culture at WBC is one of faithfulness and consistency as we endeavor to live lives of witness individually, congregationally, and in partnership with other churches locally and globally to further the praise of Jesus by making disciples.

The role of the Adult Minister is first and foremost to equip the saints for the work of the ministry.
At the core of our Adult Ministry is our Community Groups.
We currently have thirty-six Community Groups led by members of WBC that meet at various times of the week throughout the Valley.
These groups are focused on living out our Core Commitments and lives of witness together.
Groups gather around a meal, engage in Gods Word together, and pray for one another.

On the next pages you will find the standard ministry plan for our current Adult Ministry that informs the Mens Adult Minister job description.
Both documents detail the overall scope of work the Adult Minister is to oversee with specific objectives and responsibilities we are seeking to accomplish this year.
If you have any questions as you review the information provided in this hire packet, please reach out to Sarah Beaudry at sarah.
