  • We're Hiring!

    Bethlehem is now searching for its next part-time administrative assistant, and you might just have the gifts we're looking for.

    BLC is currently searching for an energetic, organized self-starter with a passion for serving others.  In addition to managing the church office, BLC's next administrative assistant will play a pivotal role in the ongoing communications and ministry efforts of BLC.

    Applicants should have strong interpersonal skills, excellent communication skills, and specific experience with Microsoft Office, social media, and other digital tools.

    This position offers a great working environment and the opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of others.  It's more of a calling than a job, and a true expression of faith in action.


    All applicants are asked to prayerfully submit their resume and any related references asap.  BLC is hoping to fill this position by January 2019.  Subsequent training and performance evaluations will be provided to support your ongoing development and future success at BLC.  This particular work schedule allows some room for flexibility and work / life balance.
