US - God has called us to be a winsome, contagious, growing church whose goal is to make Jesus famous, and go make disciples.

Our church is 183 years old, but moved 20 years ago to a former Boy Scout camp on the Huron River, surrounded by woods. We have several new buildings. We worship about 575, and we're growing as people are inviting their friends.

QUALITIES NECESSARY: Great musicianship, good planning, administration, and communication skills are vital. Good sense of humor and ability to build teams is vital. We don't take ourselves too seriously, but we take our mission very seriously. Our new Associate Pastor of Worship should have a sense of energy for God's mission and love for Jesus and for people.
