Job Description:
Position Available: Senior Pastor
Heart O’ The Lakes U.B. Church is seeking God’s plan for a new Senior Pastor to lead us forward.  After 19 years of dedicated service, our current Pastor has recently resigned, and is seeking God’s next assignment and plan for his life. 
We envision a community, challenged and changed by the love of Christ. Our mission is to love God, love people, and our purpose is to glorify Christ Jesus in all we do.  We encourage people to "come as you are," and our worship service style is contemporary.  We seek a Pastor who can lead us in this mission of love.  This leader should have a heart and a passion to reach the next generation with the gospel of Christ.  He should be a Pastor who will preach and teach biblical and relevant messages that will encourage, inspire, and motivate the church to action.  We need a leader who consistently and dynamically casts vision that inspires our congregation to personal growth, selfless action, and engages our entire community in order to develop fully-devoted followers of Christ.  This Pastor should also be someone who can lead and collaborate with our board of elders and staff members to provide purpose and oversight as we pursue Kingdom building ministry together. 
We’re a church of 40+ years with strong history of focusing on youth and families.  We’ve recently hired a Pastor of Family Ministries to lead us in a renewed emphasis toward Children’s ministry.  We are using the 252 program from Orange and are gaining momentum with our kids and young families.  We desire for this to carry into our adult worship services where young families will be inspired and compelled to join with us.  We were once a church of 300+ but are currently seeing about half of that in total numbers.  We believe that God has planted this church in this community for a great purpose.  And we are eager to experience a measure of re-birth, revitalization and growth as we pursue God’s plan and vision for us in this community.
