Freshwater Community Church is located in a bedroom community of Cleveland and Akron, Ohio. While the church is over 80 years old, in the past 12 years we have experienced tremendous growth from 135 to now 500 in our average Sunday attendance despite
being in an old building and a horrible location. We are in the middle of building a new facility in a new location with high visibility. We have a very healthy adult ministry and are looking for someone who is up for the challenge of not only leading our
current ministry but also being able to help lead our church as we experience a new wave of growth when we move into our new building.
Freshwater’s vision is to be a church where someone can encounter the presence of God. The best picture of this is found in Ezekiel 47 (hence our name). We have prayed for this as a church and we hear story after story of people who are utterly
transformed by the Holy Spirit’s presence in our services and ministries. We are looking for someone who has that same passion for prayer and hunger for God to move in people’s lives.
In terms of philosophy we seek to be a church that is balanced in Worship, Serving, Fellowship, Evangelism, and Discipleship. The adult pastor would be the champion of these purposes as it relates to all adult ministries. Our expectation is that
this position would be heavily invested in leadership development and administering the ministry rather than doing the ministry himself.

as a God-moment where He raises up leaders and sends them out to build up his kingdom...even some of our best people. So now we're looking forward to who God will bring to Freshwater to start a new partnership with us in ministry. We are looking for someone
who has expereince in a church that is 300+ larger with a track record of growth and health.
