Koinos Church, an eleven year-old congregation that recently moved into its own facility in the western suburbs of Reading, PA, is actively seeking a Pastor of Organization & Development to join our pastoral staff team.
Koinos is part of the Anabaptist tradition, yet has a strong contemporary feel. Sunday worship is casual, with the generous use of contemporary music, pop-culture elements, and traditional spiritual practices. The church has a strong focus on the life
and teaching of Jesus of Nazareth, is historically orthodox, but socially progressive.
While more than 300 people call Koinos their home, many were not previously part of a church, came from a disenfranchised faith experience or hadn’t considered themselves people of faith prior to connecting here. The congregation is primarily made up of
younger professionals and hosts a thriving children’s ministry.
Koinos has a passion to connect with people outside of faith, sometimes in unorthodox and creative ways. The people of Koinos are a very active community with over 85% of regular attendees volunteering. It has gained a reputation for its on-going partnerships
with social justice organizations within its local community and the city of Reading (one of the poorest in the United States.)
The Pastor of Organization & Development will serve as the primary organizational administrator and team leader of Koinos. He or she will…
- coach ministry directors and develop ministry and advisory teams. This will be an essential role this individual will play in leading the church forward.
- execute operational functions, such as finance, facility and grounds, equipment, programming, and volunteer oversight and recruitment.
- collaborate with the Pastor of Connection and Communication to develop and cast a clear vision for Koinos, guiding the church through important stages of organizational development and strategic planning. Our hope for this role is for it to serve as a
catalyst for the next stage of the church’s growth.
The successful candidate will have professional ministry experience and a history of successfully growing ministries through outreach. A relevant master’s degree is preferred. The ability to become licensed by the Brethren in Christ denomination is essential.
