Job Description:

Lead Pastor to serve as the primary teaching pastor for the congregation and encourager for the leadership team.  Direct responsibility for preaching of the Word of God, counseling, and developing the course and plan that will allow Village Hope Church to accomplish its stated God-given mission and purpose.  


Village Hope Church formed in 2006 out of a desire to start a "clean slate" church, adhering as closely as possible to the description and operation of the New Testament church, free of un-Biblical influences from both the Chrisitian culture and the culture at large.  No legalism or mis-appropriation of scripture, no "tradition" for tradition's sake, and no mis-characterizations of scripture designed to make God or the church seem "cool" or more appealing culturally.  Relevance without compromise.  Primary mission is to bring the hope of Christ to those who are dying spiritually in our area.  Interested in church growth by conversion, rather than church-transfer.


We originally met in an old barn for the first several months of our ministry, then rented a building from a church for three years, praying for God's leading to our permanent campus.  In 2008 we purchased and renovated a recently closed bowling alley to use as our church.  We renovated about half of the building at that time, creating a 400 seat worship center and some office space.  Our first service in the new facility was in December of 2009.  God has been clearly evident in our journey as a church and has blessed greatly.  We're about to complete renovations on our building, opening a new children's ministry area called "HopeTown" and another large area of our building for Life Groups and Bible Studies.
