Job Type: Full-Time

Job Description:
We are a contemporary Anabaptist congregation in a rural city of 8500 in NW Ohio looking for a 2/3 times youth pastor and 1/3 times associate pastor who is interested in becoming the senior pastor in 3-4 years of this modest sized (225) congregation.
The ideal candidate is a second career person in his 30's with a M. Div. degree and a heart for the wounded and hurting in society. While I listed us as non-denominational we are actually a Mennonite church but that carries an image that is not us.
We are the kind of church that people write books about. We operate the church, a homeless shelter, a free medical clinic, 2 thrift stores and a ministry of aid to the needy. We would be a big deal in any major city. The fact that we do all this in a very nice small town is an example of God's ability to defy logic--and his sense of humor.
We are seeking a spirit filled individual who can pastor and relate well to the unchurched. We need someone who is a proven leader who can minister well to both youth and adults.
We will even let you speak to the couple you are replacing. They are moving because God is leading them away not because they desire a new church and we are heartbroken with them.
I am the senior pastor and would appreciate only resumes that fairly well match our needs. Thanks you.
