About Us:

Lighthouse Community Church averages between 300-325 in morning worship and ministers to nearly 500 in our community. We are on the verge of a breakthrough. We are a healthy and balanced multigenerational congregation in a new building. We are a welcoming community that nurtures its people, both spiritually and emotionally. We send missionaries into our community and around the world. In short, we’re in good shape. But we don’t ever want to be satisfied with the status quo. We want to always be improving—but that’s what a breakthrough requires. Our staff also includes a full-time Children & Student Pastor,and a part-time Office Administrator.

Job Description:

Responsible for taking our church to a higher level by continuing to maintain the highest level of integrity, being passionate about outreach, being able to preach Bible-based truth in an appealing yet uncompromising manner, valuing traditional worship while embracing contemporary ways to encounter God, having a deep love for people inside and outside the church, and being able to cast a compelling vision to motivate our congregation to serve our God and our neighbors.

Job Qualifications:

Ordination (or eligible for ordination) in the Wesleyan Church is required. Must have proven strong preaching skills, able to present God’s message in a manner that prepares the hearer to grow spiritually, not shying away from the “hard truths,” using a variety of media. Must be evangelistic, having a passion for the lost and a heart to reach out beyond the walls of the church. Must be able to motivate the congregation to engage in significant outreach both to our community and to the world.

NOTE: Along with your resume, please include samples of your preaching (internet access, DVDs or CDs, but DVDs are preferred).
