Woodburn Missionary Church (WMC) is a part of The Missionary Church Denomination. The Missionary Church is one of the fastest growing denominations in the United States today. It is recognized as the leader in training church planters in the United States through its Church Multiplication Training Center. The personality of Woodburn Missionary Church is reflected in its rich heritage, family ties, and the hardworking middle-Americans who make up the church.  The people are very friendly, quick to embrace new folks, and there is a genuine love and care for one another.  The church has the feel of a church in a larger community, although it is in a smaller community.  At Woodburn Missionary Church, the ministries are taken very seriously. All of their ministries fall under three key areas of purpose: exalting, edifying/equipping, and evangelizing.


Woodburn Missionary Church is searching for their next Senior Pastor who will be the spiritual and pastoral leader of WMC.  He will serve as an Elder and member of the Church Board.  The Senior Pastor will share responsibility for providing spiritual oversight, direction, stewardship, and pastoral care for each member and family of WMC, as well as individuals directly impacted by the mission and ministry of WMC.  He will be the primary face of WMC, both in the church and the wider community.  He will exhibit a shepherd’s heart for all who are a part of the church, regardless of age, race, or economic status.  The Senior Pastor will be an excellent communicator of God’s Word, articulating the timeless truths of Scripture with clear application to live and serve like Jesus in the 21st century. 


The ideal candidate will have at least three years experience and leadership in a local church ministry is required. The successful candidate will have a proven track record in ministry.  He will be a leader of leaders, one who cultivates and grows the potential of Woodburn Missionary Church.  He will have a passion for reaching those who are far from God. A college degree in a ministry-related field is required, and a seminary degree is a plus.  The candidate must be willing to be licensed in The Missionary Church if not already.
