Since 1981, the mission of North Park Church (NPC) is to make disciples of

Jesus who WORSHIP God passionately, CONNECT with each other in

caring community, and IMPACT the world through word and deed.


Led by a strong leadership team, North Park Church has a strong focus on

discipleship, which is evidenced through its depth and focus on

relationships, theology, teaching, and preaching across all ministries of the

church. The primary focus of the church is predominantly geared towards

the current believer’s ‘faith walk,’ and therein lies its motivation to be a

discipleship-driven community.


North Park Church is looking for an Assistant Pastor who will support the

role of the Senior Pastor in the overall execution of the church’s mission and

vision, including the oversight of church staff. They will serve alongside the

Senior Pastor as the second-in-command and a developmental strategist,

directly facilitating all aspects of ministry operations at North Park Church.

This individual will be a builder and developer at North Park Church, with a

strong leadership gift, and skills to scale.


A Master of Divinity degree from an accredited seminary is required for this

position. In addition, the successful candidate will possess a deep theological

understanding that is consistent with the theology of one or more of the

following denominations:

  • Evangelical Presbyterian Church
  • Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church
  • Presbyterian Church of America

Ordination (or readiness to be ordained) with the Evangelical Presbyterian

Church is essential for this role. In order to fit theologically, one must

express broad agreement with the Westminster Confession of Faith,

including support of covenant baptism of infants. Five years of experience

(or more) in full-time church-based ministry and comfortability with

working in a smaller church environment. At least two of these years should

be working in an intergenerational context.


The ideal candidate for the position of Assistant Pastor will possess an elder-

quality personal and family lifestyle, with the capacity to work joyfully with

the current church leadership. They will be committed to the reformed faith

and find compatibility with the vision, mission, values, and doctrinal views

of North Park Church. While the ability to shape, lead, and maintain a

ministry utilizing groups of volunteer leaders is imperative for this role, an

upstanding character of integrity and trust among volunteers, staff,

subordinates, and the Senior Pastor, is of utmost importance.


Wexford, a suburb of Pittsburgh, is located in Allegheny County in

southwestern Pennsylvania. It is also in close proximity to Cranberry

Township, one of the fastest growing areas in the United States. Located a

mere half-hour from Pittsburgh, Wexford has a presence, charm, and family-

friendly appeal of its own. The community is highly diverse in terms of

ethnicity, with many housing options in line with the median cost of

living. Home to many upper middle-class individuals where well over 50%

of the community possess an earned undergraduate degree, the area’s

commercial landscape is dominated by white-collar professionals, a large

number of whom are employed in the medical field, sciences, or

business. North Park Church is in close proximity to North Park, which has

proven to be a great asset to the community. Residents take pride in their

“most livable” city, which Money Magazine identified as the top city to live

within the Northeast in 2015.
