Peace Lutheran Church (LCMC) in Hazen, North Dakota is seeking a full time Associate Pastor to provide leadership, teaching and direction of the church in all areas of ministry with a primary focus to children, youth and young family ministries.  We are looking for an Associate Pastor who will bring excitement and energy to our congregation and to our children and youth programs.  We have an average weekly attendance of 150 people and are a multi-generational congregation.


Peace Lutheran Church offers a variety of worship styles; we practice open Communion; have an active youth program; offer adult Bible studies and strive to maintain good relations with other local congregations.  We are members of the corporation of the Camp of the Cross in Garrison, North Dakota and have been active in supporting its ministry.  Peace Lutheran has a strong desire to continue to grow our youth programs and young family ministries.  We are a congregation who believes and supports the traditional Lutheran theology.


North Dakota was recently named the happiest state in the United States according to an annual survey from the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index.  Hazen is a happy community and offers a home town atmosphere you will be proud to call home!  We are located on the far eastern edge of the Bakken Oil industry and on the Southshores of Lake Sakakawea.  If you enjoy the outdoors, Lake Sakakawea offers some of the best walleye and salmon fishing as well as great opportunities for family tubing and water skiing!  If wild game hunting is an interest, our area offers great opportunities for adventure! 


We are currently a community of about 3,000 people.  We are a unique rural community that is strong in agriculture and industry, keeping our communities young at heart and age!  Hazen High School was recently named in the top five schools in North Dakota.  We are fortunate to have a critical access hospital (Sakakawea Medical Center) and area clinics that have great doctors and professionals caring for our community.
