Job Description:

The Pastor we seek is a visionary leader, with strong interpersonal and communication skills who listens to the hearts of people and preaches the passionate gospel.  As the spiritual leader of our congregation, we desire his own vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ to set the standard for our spiritual relationships.

     Being Biblically faithful and teaching from the Word of God is obviously essential, so that those who have no hope may come to know the Only Hope.  In addition, we as believers desire to be equipped and encouraged by our Pastor’s teaching to reach out with the Good News in our daily lives.  Empowering members to use their gifts with holy boldness, we desire a Pastor who will model and forecast God’s desire to use us to expand His Kingdom beyond our four walls into the community.

     Our church family desires  an energetic, focused Pastor who will love his congregation in word and deed, desiring to know us in order to lead us.  This congregational guidance will be evident in his roles of servant and supporter, advocate and administrator.  We desire authentic community with our Pastor, and each other, as we model the love of Christ to our community via ministries that declare the hope of Christ, create opportunities for spiritual decisions, and allow others to devote themselves to God’s will for their lives.
