We are looking for a candidate with the following qualifications…


  • Graduate from a biblically conservative seminary. (A post graduate degree is preferred.)


  • Believes the Bible in its original writings  is the inerrant “Word of God”.

Plus, he will be a man who…


  • Has the ability to cast a powerful vision and effectively lead the staff, elders and other leaders in carrying out the mission of New Life Community Church.


  • Possesses strong communication skills and the ability to preach biblically-based messages that are relevant and life-transforming for both believers and non-believers. This person should have experience in researching, preparing and presenting messages at an adult level on a sustained basis throughout the year, not merely as a fill in responsibility.


  • Reaches out to and connects with people from all walks of life and makes them feel welcome to worship with our church family – wherever they may be in their relationship with God.


  • Has a passion for reaching the lost and for continuing to develop both local and international outreach ministries.


  • Believes in and embraces the need for personal evangelism and discipleship.


  • Has experience with small group ministry – and the ability to connect with small group leaders and others who are potential teaching partners.


  • Helps people achieve spiritual and emotional wholeness by supporting the vision for our Free Life Ministry… embracing the Freedom in Christ truths… and helping others realize and live out their identity in Christ.


  • Makes himself available for hospital visits and crisis ministry with our family of faith and shares these responsibilities with the Elders and small group leaders.


In summary, we’re seeking a man who has a shepherd’s heart… is approachable… and loves God and His children deeply. He has passion and skill for engaging people who do not know the Lord… a heart for missions… and a love for the poor. He should be skilled at communicating biblical principles on a regular basis that compel life application.
