Grace Community Church
Grace Community Church in Washingtonville, New York is currently looking for a Senior Pastor to lead a congregation of over 600 people. Our current, beloved pastor and founder has faithfully served for over 26 years and has felt a calling to step aside and pass the mantle to another man of God’s choosing. He lovingly and wisely began the process of transition over a year ago and has been preparing the leadership, the staff, and congregation for this moment, and it is his prayer and the prayer of the congregation that the next pastor would lead our church into a future even brighter and more amazing than our past. We see the fields ripe for harvest and we have a vision to reach our county for Christ as well as a mission to raise up wholly devoted disciples of Jesus. Grace Community Church is evangelical in spirit, baptistic in doctrine, and features a seeker-sensitive and purpose-driven ministry philosophy that is applied to our own local ministry opportunities. We have a wonderful and dedicated staff, leadership team, and ministry workers running a broad range of ministries from MOPS to home Bible studies. We place high importance on personal growth and discipleship and see small groups and ministry teams as an ideal way for large and growing churches to build and maintain healthy relationships to better serve the body of Christ and the community at large. The ideal candidate will have a seminary degree with 10 years experience as a Senior Pastor or commensurate experience as an adult pastor. The person will be an outstanding communicator and be committed to identifying and developing future leaders through personal discipling and mentoring to ensure that we can sustain growth by having a strong, healthy leadership team. He will need to be aligned with our doctrinal beliefs, possess a clear call to ministry, be a man of faith and prayer, be a good vision caster, have outstanding leadership skills, be transparent, able to maintain genuine accountably with members of our Senior Leadership Team, and have great love for people. We consider these as basic requirements, but willingly and humbly submit to God’s leading and choosing in considering applicants who do not fit the profile exactly. To learn more about us, please visit our website at www.gracecommunityonline.org. If you feel the Holy Spirit may be leading you our way, please send us your resumé along with a cover letter to staffsearch@gracecommunityonline.org and we’ll be honored to give each application a careful review and reply. May God bless and prosper you in your search and in ours as we search for the man of God’s own choosing.
