Outreach Mobilization Internship or Part-time Position
Alto Reformed Church is seeking someone to mobilize our congregation to do more outreach to nonbelievers in our area. The position is open as an internship or a part-time staff position. As an internship, this is a great opportunity for a college or seminary student to serve in ministry while taking online classes, commuting to a local school, or taking a year off from the classroom. Alto Reformed Church provides a healthy environment for spiritual growth and leadership development.
Resume’s may be sent to Kevin@AltoReformedChurch.org.
An Introduction to Alto Reformed Church:
Alto Reformed Church is in a rural setting located in the village of Alto, Wisconsin, which is roughly an hour drive from major cities like Madison, Milwaukee, and Appleton. Alto is an unincorporated village and has an approximate population of 150. Its primary industry comes from a cheese processing plant within its borders, and the agricultural industry employs a large percentage of area residents. The congregation is comprised of members from Alto and the surrounding communities, including Brandon, Waupun, and others. Alto is located in the Waupun Area School District.
If we could summarize our church in one word, the Alto Reformed Church (ARC) could be summed up by the word “CARING”. We express our very welcoming spirit to visitors. Because we have a strong sense of community, love, and respect, we extend the love of Jesus to those who walk through our doors, and we reach out to the needs of the community in general. The ARC congregation desires to reach out to others and to grow together.
The foundation of our church, and perhaps our most important strengths, include our unconditional commitment to the inerrancy of Scripture and our loyalty to Christ as Head of the Church. We are nothing without Christ, and we believe the Bible is the Word of God. The ARC stands on these principles.
Another one of our strengths is the encouragement of each person to exercise his or her spiritual gifts. We have many ministries to get involved in, and one can find his or her niche, no matter what age. Additionally, the ARC is striving to minister to each age level, from nursery/preschool up through retired adults; every person can find a place to grow in the Lord.
Our church also acknowledges the size of the mission field. We have great missions support, both financially and spiritually. 20-25% of our annual offerings collected go into local, national, and international missions. We spotlight one of our missionaries each month with a brief report. Members correspond through letters and uphold our missionaries in prayer. Our mission field is not only within the walls of our church, but locally and within our nation and world.
Although our church has strong roots, we realize that we cannot squander the opportunities and the talents God has provided us with. We must encourage each other to grow together in faith and to live out this faith daily. We believe that we must live a Christ-centered, God-serving life.
