Church of the Chimes (CotC) is a multigenerational church and has been doing ministry in San Jose, CA since 1957. What started as a Drive-In church (literally at a Drive-In theater), moved to its current campus in 1959, nestled in a neighborhood of San Jose. CotC has set out to love God, Love others and make disciples. With those principles in mind CotC put into place ministries such as Acts of Mercy which seeks to meet needs of the community by providing meals, clothing and other supplies to the needy. Pursuing deeper knowledge of Christ is paramount to CotC, and because of this they have implemented Q Place which is a place where people come together to ask the tough questions and to enable people to figure out for themselves what they believe about God and the Bible. 


Church of the Chimes is seeking a new Lead Pastor. The Lead Pastor will be a follower of God who can masterfully communicate the Word of God with the transforming power of Jesus Christ. From the pulpit, they will teach the Bible with clarity, pastor the congregation with love, and cast an inspiring vision for the future. This person will be a collaborative leader; leaning on and working alongside the high capacity lay and staff leaders around him. 


Qualified candidates would likely have theological training. Ordained or Commissioned Pastor with a Master of Divinity or its equivalent is preferred. This candidate will have served as a Lead Pastor or an Associate Pastor with staff and as identified, developed and led a variety of projects and teams simultaneously. This candidate will also be a skilled expository Bible teacher with deep, Biblical knowledge and the ability to communicate that knowledge in practical and approachable ways. The ability to connect multi-generationally and be a strong believer in discipleship driven ministry and an active participant in small group relationships are important attributes in a candidate. 


Church of the Chimes is nestled in one of San Jose’s finest communities. San Jose, located in the heart of the booming Silicon Valley, offers residents an average of 300 days of sunshine annually and plenty to do – whether working or playing. Even though San Jose is the third-largest city in California, with a population of 1 million. It prides itself on its small-town charm and diversity. Because of its transition from an agricultural center to more of an urbanized metropolitan center, San Jose has earned the city the nickname “Capital of Silicon Valley”.  Forbes magazine ranked San Jose number 19 for job growth and number 7 for education. Such tech giants like Adobe, Google, Apple and Samsung have their headquarters located there. Parents can choose between more than a dozen ranked “great schools” from elementary to high school ensuring a good education starts early. The city is also a quick drive to area beaches and only four hours from Yosemite National Park. Located within 75 miles of the city are Monterey, Pebble Beach and Santa Cruz, so exploring the entire region is easy to do.
