The Chapel of the South Fork is situated in South Fork, a small resort community near Wolf Creek Pass at the upper end of the San Luis Valley, Colorado.          

                                                                                                                                                                              Our Church traces its roots back 33 years when a group of Christians formed this congregation as an evangelical and interdenominational Church alternative to what was perceived as a more fundamental and closed Church experience.


We are an independent self-governing congregation with a seven member Church Council that, with the leadership of our Pastor oversees and leads the congregation in the ministry areas of Discipleship, Evangelism, Fellowship, Worship and Service. Our worship style is informal, non-liturgical, traditional and blended.


Situated in a small town in the south west Colorado Mountains we experience two distinct congregations - one during the winter months (October through April) that is made up of a small local congregation and one in the summer months (May through September) that is made up of a much larger congregation of summer residents and visitors. The congregation is made up of people (mostly retired) from a variety of Christian backgrounds and so we respect the traditions of all believers. Consequently, we do not emphasize doctrinal differences but affirm the central truths of our Christian faith.


Our facilities, recently upgraded, consist of a sanctuary and when using our summer overflow area, seats 250 people, Fellowship Hall, Classrooms and Kitchen. We are situated close to the Rio Grande River with the majestic Rocky Mountains as a backdrop.


The mission of our Church is “Making real to all people the freedom, power, love and salvation God has given in Jesus Christ” and so, we are looking for a Pastor to implement this mission, to vision for our future growth and service in the community, to encourage the Believers and call people to discipleship in Christ.


Candidates should:

  • Be Christ-centered and Biblically solid
  • Family oriented so as to carry out a pastoral visitation program
  • Versatile to work with varied denominational backgrounds
  • Outgoing, so as to exhibit a strong community visibility
  • Supportive of other churches and ministers in the community
  • Be a Bible teacher and a strong supporter of Christian education
  • An ordained minister with an educational background from a recognized theological institution.

The successful candidate will have a proven record, be a dynamic evangelical preacher, have leadership skills, and comfortable accepting and ministering to people of a wide variety of Christian traditions.


Compensation includes salary of $50,000 per annum, a pension contribution of $3,000 per annum and four weeks’ vacation. We are hopeful that the successful candidate may be available from August 1st when our present Pastor, of almost ten years, retires.


Candidates should send Cover Letter of Introduction, Resume, and Faith Statement by April 15th 2015 to
