Job Description:
Greetings from Winding Waters Brethren Church,
Winding Waters is a forty-year-old church that is located on the north side of Elkhart Indiana. It is affiliated with the Brethren denomination from Ashland, Ohio. Currently we are in process of a Senior Pastor search. Sunday attendance averages approximately 200 – 250 and our budget for this year is $380.000.00
Winding Waters has gone through a season of testing and healing. We are currently without any fulltime pastoral staff. Eight months ago there were four (Sr. Pastor, Discipleship Pastor, Youth and Worship). Senior Pastor resigned, Worship Director was let go, Discipleship Pastor was called to the military and the Youth Pastor has moved to Arizona. The church is currently being shepherded by an interim Pastor that teaches the Word and gives guidance to the leadership. The leadership is evolving our by laws toward the Elder model and away from congregation rule.
Through this process we see the mighty hand of God working wonders in the body of the church. Much needed healing and a growing unity is visible. The lay people are stepping up and doing the ministry of the church. God continues to be faithful in His leading. We are teaching the church that the role of the Pastor is to preach and teach the Word and equip the saints (Eph 4) for ministry. What an exciting time this is for us. Our goal is to find the Senior Pastor that God has already selected for us and to allow him to fill the remainder of the staff positions.
Our focus is on biblical teaching from the pulpit and a man devoted to prayer.
May God bless your next ministry,
Mark Dalrymple
