Bemus Point United Methodist Church

4954 Bemus Ellery Road, Bemus Point, NY  14712

716-386-3401 / www.bpumc.com


Bemus Point United Methodist is an active, multigenerational, evangelical congregation with 3 worship services averaging about 350 attendees. We are located in a small resort community on the edge of Chautauqua Lake.  Our Co-Lead Pastors and ten staff work collaboratively to create an atmosphere where spiritual depth and authentic discipleship are nurtured.


Recently, God has called four of our current staff into transition, and we celebrate with them! Due to one staff retirement and three other staff moving to graduate degree programs, we currently have full-time and part-time positions available in the areas of Contemporary Worship Director, Technology/Web/Graphics, Children’s Ministry Director, Choir Director (Traditional Worship), Outreach, and Discipleship. This is an exciting opportunity to create new ministry models and to serve with a very dedicated and collaborative team.  Some of the exiting staff members held more than one of these positions. (For example, our Contemporary Worship Director was also our Technology Director.) We recognize that new, incoming staff may have different combinations of gifts. We welcome your inquiries about how your gifts might combine one or more of the categories above to meet these available opportunities. Full job descriptions for each position are posted below.


Candidate requirements include:

  • A strong Christian faith
  • The ability to lead a multi-faceted program that embraces a philosophy of volunteer-driven ministry
  • Strong abilities in teaching and public speaking, and strong interpersonal and communication skills, both oral and written
  • A track record that includes references to your professionalism and good judgment
  • Experience in supervising (preferred)
  • A record of success in working collaboratively 
  • A record of success in recruiting, empowering, and nurturing volunteers
