Job Description:

Lead Campus Pastor

Carlisle Evangelical Free Church


Our church seeks a gifted pastor with strong leadership development skills to lead and develop pastoral staff, empower ministry leaders, and oversee the 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 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 by coordinating staff members and lay minister teams. 


The successful candidate for CEFC will have: a proven track record of developing leaders; experience creating strong leadership teams; the primary spiritual gift of leadership; strong interpersonal skills; be proactive; a self-starter; able to multi-task; teachable and open to feedback; a match doctrinally; able to teach the Bible; a leader of leaders while showing humility; and 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 he will be expected to teach and model the Bible in Life Groups, adult discipleship classes, 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, yet friendly and fun.
