Located in the fastest growing city in the state of Missouri, Wentzville Christian Church is a church with great opportunity before her.


The church is over fifty years old, but in the last ten years WCC has relocated to a highy visible location, with an attractive facility. During that decade the church has grown to an average Sunday attendance of 650 in two Sunday services. Contemporary style worship, and messages with practical application, vibrant children's and youth ministries are all helping impact the young families that are streaming into Wentzville and the surrounding area. The church has a young, dynamic staff, and a forward-thinking team of elders to help point the way to the future. Wentzville is known as "The Crossroads of the Nation" and Wentzville Christian Church has been placed there "for such a time as this."


The Senior Minister will primarily lead the charge in taking Wentzville Christian Church to the next level. He will join a great young staff, and a team of elders who are anticipating a great future. The successful candidate will be one who has led with skill, humility, and strength over the years. The next Senior Minister will have a background of dynamic leadership experience in the local church.


He will possess a high sense of social intelligence and prioritize the need to be approachable, accessible, and adaptable. His preaching will be biblically sound, relevant to the culture, and full of practical application. He will be largely responsible for creating methods of cohesive collaboration across the ministries, while vision casting and generating systems that will take the church to the next level. The next Senior Minister will be particularly mindful of creating continuity and sustainability when implementing systems that propel church growth over the next several years.


The successful candidate must have a proven track record of ministry, preferably in a large church setting. A college degree is required for this position, although a seminary background is a plus. The Senior Minister will have shown giftedness in a senior minister role or in a similar capacity, while relating across generational lines and across a church and community of socio-economic diversity. The Senior Minister must be a leader who exemplifies and communicates both grace and truth, particularly with a strong understanding of theological tenets coinciding with the Restoration Movement. The successful candidate will have both a respect for the past and innovation for the future. The Senior Minister must model an authentic life of servanthood and a Christ follower.
