Job Description:

Solo Pastor

Pauma Valley Community Church is a non-denominational church located in rural North County San Diego, whose pastor is retiring.  We welcome the Holy Spirit’s ministry in our personal and corporate life together.  We love to worship.  Prayer is a significant part of our church life together. We are students of God’s Word who appreciate good teaching and expect to be challenged to apply the Word to our lives.  We are blessed with many who freely share their faith and minister effectively outside the walls of the church.  Our buildings are paid off and we use funds to minister to the poor and promote God’s kingdom in our realm of influence. We expect the Kingdom of God to be manifest in our midst and in our lives outside the church.


We generally have ninety to one hundred adults at the worship service on Sunday morning.  Our Sunday school programs and our VBS outreach each summer touch a good number of children.  We have a food ministry and reach out to the reservations and private campgrounds in the area.  The people living in these facilities are living on the margins and are often just one step from homelessness.  Many of those we have helped from these communities have come to the Lord and have become involved in our Sunday worship experience, and several attend one of the weekday men’s, women’s or home bible studies we offer. The Valley Center Pauma School District provides an excellent education for children throughout our community.


The candidate will be Biblically-grounded, prayer-driven, and Spirit-guided. They will be currently experiencing an active relationship with God through meditation on the scriptures, listening to Him during personal and leadership prayer, and receiving guidance from the Holy Spirit.  They will be a Servant Leader who will cooperate with the Holy Spirit and partner with the Elders to lead.  They will be a “point-person”, fully engaged with all the members of the church body. They will be a prophetic teacher/pastor who is relational and joyful in their teaching, disciplining, counseling, outreach, and celebrations. Duties include but are not limited to:
