Job Description:

First Wesleyan Church of Battle Creek, Michigan, is searching for an Establishing Pastor who will be responsible for planning, implementing, promoting and overseeing all Connections, Small Groups and Congregational Care opportunities in compliance with the mission, values and strategy of First Wes.

Don't let the title fool you; the Establishing Pastor will primarily be responsible for creating small group connections and environments, while the Connections and Congregational Care responsibilities will have the assistance of staff led by this role.

We are currently averaging around 2,000 in weekend worship attendance, and our desire is to call and lead everyday people into an extraordinary relationship with Jesus Christ. We realize that in a church our size no one will know everyone, but we are unswervingly committed to seeing every person who attends First Wes pursue a deep, meaningful relationship with Christ and with those around them; the Establishing Pastor will greatly assist us in this endeavor!

The person we’re looking for will possess a vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ, significant relationship-building skills, strong administrative and organizational abilities, and a relentless commitment to team ministry where people are properly equipped and ministry responsibility is confidently given away.

A complete job description can be found at Your letter of interest with an attached resume should be delivered electronically via our Office Manager, Barb Dowell, at We’re accepting resumes through February 1.
