Job Description:

We are looking for a special person to fill our Pastor position. If you have the ability to lead our congregation and help blend traditional ways with more progressive ideas, then you are the one we are looking for. We are looking to draw younger families to our church with more blended music, sermons that relate to everyday life and new ways to connect to surrounding communities. The aspects of Christian worship have evolved over the past several years and we understand this need. We would like to strengthen our relationship with God while we transform into a church that still meets the changing needs of its members and community.

 

Job Description
This full-time or part-time position will require a pastor who can give positive, uplifting sermons tied to modern day experiences and events. We like them to be clear, simple and spirit filled while incorporating joy and humor. This person may not be the best singer, but leading the congregation in song will win over the hearts of many. The music we are looking for will be some traditional, but with the introduction of new, more progressive music. This person will be caring, compassionate, and a counselor who maintains confidentiality. In the hope of drawing in many younger families, this person will work well with the youth and will have the ability to appeal to them with some new, fresh ideas. There will be many aspects that the pastor will have to be involved in:

  • Make pastoral calls to those in hospitals, nursing homes and those who are confined to their homes.

  • Participate in an interfaith Thanksgiving service by alternating locations with other churches involved.

  • Attend the monthly Church Council meetings giving support/guidance as needed.

  • Lead the Confirmation classes every year.

  • Lead Adult Bible Study.

  • Work with various groups/committees.

About us

Our church was founded in 1852.  Construction of our sanctuary began in 1862 and was completed in 1865 after the end of the Civil War.  After numerous improvements over the years, it is where we still worship to this day.  We have a beautiful Family LIfe Center where we have a general office, a Pastor’s office, a choir room, 5 classrooms, a fully equipped kitchen and a large hall with a stage. This modern facility could accommodate future growth of church worship. Currently we use this facility to hold our annual Chicken and Dumpling Dinner, Picnic, and Sausage Supper, which help to financially support our church. The Ignite youth program, confirmation classes, VBS, children’s Christmas play and many other events are held in this building as well. The church, Family Life Center and a newly renovated parsonage all sit on 40 beautiful acres.  

 

We have approximately 160 members with an average of 40-50 members attending Sunday service weekly.  We are a friendly, welcoming congregation that works well together.

 

In Summary

We are looking for someone who is encouraging, will work together on shared goals and challenges, and will rejoice in the blessings of the Lord with the congregation. We are hoping to increase our membership and continue to evolve with visionary leadership and upbeat energy.
