CenterPoint Church seeks a Lead Pastor to be our primary leader, vision-caster, preacher, and spiritual guide. This man will make a commitment to lead a community in the Greater Capital Region that is learning to make Jesus Christ more and more the centerpoint of our lives. He will be able to confirm God's pastoral call to continue the spiritual development of our church family; a call evidenced by his personal relationship with Jesus Christ (1 Tim 4:12-13). Our Lead Pastor will have an active prayer life, strong pastor-teacher gifts, and proven experience in vision-casting, evangelism and disciple-making. He will be capable of bridging the distance between setting vision and developing measurable objectives to realize that vision. He will be a man of authenticity and integrity, having a heart for servant-leadership, and a courageous vision for reaching the lost and needy. He will be able to faithfully communicate Biblical truth in a manner relevant to the New England culture.
The Lead Pastor will focus on preaching, leadership, and guidance:
• Preaching - as the primary preacher, approx 40 weeks of the year.
• Leadership - will initiate statements of purpose, mission, model, values, vision, objectives and direction. As the primary guardians of the church, the Elders will work with the Lead Pastor to discern God’s best for the church. With the authority of the Elders, the Lead Pastor is the primary communicator to the church body of purpose, mission, model, values, vision, objectives and direction.
• Guidance - will give spiritual direction and pastoral leadership to the elders, staff, lay leaders and members of the congregation.
CenterPoint Church is a community in the greater capital area learning more and more to make Jesus Christ the centerpoint of our lives. CenterPoint (formerly First Baptist Church of Concord) was organized in 1818. We are strategically located in downtown Concord and worship together one block from Main Street and the seat of New Hampshire government. With our future Lead Pastor we will also be prepared to determine whether CenterPoint recommits to the downtown location, or relocates to our thirty-seven acre site strategically located at the interchange of a bypass and two major Interstate highways.
Sunday services at CenterPoint include biblical and relevant teaching, contemporary music, casual dress, a multi-generational congregation, and a warm welcome.
