Job Description:

Paragon Christian Church, an independent fellowship of believers, is in search of a full-time minister to lead our church.  We believe that Jesus is the Head of the Church and every Christian is part of His body.   We also believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God and we are to be obedient to Jesus through Christian baptism.   

The mission of our church is to share our faith in Jesus Christ to all and to help each other grow in the grace and knowledge of Christ so that we may know and do His will.   The Holy Bible is our guidebook for life.  

Paragon Christian Church’s weekly attendance average is 60 to 70 members and guests.  Our traditional service format includes Sunday School classes beginning at 9:30 a.m. and the Sunday Worship Service immediately following.     

The ideal candidate must be a baptized believer and wish to serve as a full-time minister at the church. The minister will have primary responsibilities for preaching and congregational engagement, including a spiritual presence with youth and adults (both members and non-members) in Paragon and nearby communities.   

Paragon Christian Church offers a competitive package, including salary commensurate with experience, vacation time, travel and cell phone expense reimbursement, and housing/parsonage with partially-paid utilities.
