Lead Campus Pastor, Carlise Evangelical Free Church

Please apply through our email, not this website. Thanks.


Our church seeks a gifted pastor with strong leadership development skills to help develop pastoral ministry staff, empower ministry leaders, and oversee pastoral care of the congregation. 


The Lead Campus Pastor will serve on a strong leadership team with the Senior Pastor and the Executive Pastor.


Associate Pastors and ministry directors, as well as several ministry leaders/deacons, will report directly to the Lead Campus Pastor.   The Lead Campus Pastor will be responsible for developing and resourcing the leaders on our main campus.  He will encourage a culture where people are “built up in Christ” while also being challenged and encouraged.  The Lead Campus Pastor will oversee the pastoral care of the congregation specifically by coordinating staff members and lay minister teams. 


The successful candidate for CEFC will have: a proven track record of developing leaders and creating strong leadership teams; the primary spiritual gift of leadership; have strong interpersonal skills; be proactive, casting vision and a self-starter; be able to multi-task; be teachable and open to feedback; be a match doctrinally; be able to teach the Bible; be a leader of leaders while showing humility; and will possess personal character consistent with the Biblical requirements for church leadership set forth in 1 Timothy 3 and 2 Timothy 2.


He must be passionate about Christ and His people, and have a strong desire to see the unchurched find and develop a personal relationship with Jesus. 


The ideal candidate will also have a bachelor’s degree and theological training (a seminary degree is strongly preferred, but not required). 


The Lead Campus Pastor role is not a preaching role, but will be expected to teach and model the Bible in Life Groups, adult discipleship classes, and leadership development and other appropriate meetings. 


CEFC is a growing church of 1,100 in Carlisle, PA.  We are committed to our vision of living “All of Life for Christ” and our values of Growing, Building and Serving.  CEFC is currently a one campus church that is embarking on a multi-site strategy.  The workplace is fast paced, exciting, friendly and fun.


This is a unique opportunity for a leader to make an impact for Christ in our community and work as part of a gifted, but humble, supportive, and healthy pastoral team.
