St. Giles is a Spirit-filled, Presence-driven church of around 300 members located in the suburbs of Charlotte, NC. We are seeking a Senior Pastor who is restless to break free of religious boundaries—who is longing to be in a church that desires the “more” of God. He should embrace, value, and pastor the ministry of the Holy Spirit, including the exercise of the gifts of the Spirit in the church. Equally important, he should prepare the church to become committed disciples, sent by God in the fullness and empowerment of the Holy Spirit to effectively proclaim Jesus Christ to those in the culture and market place around them.
We are seeking a pastor who is willing to take risks and explore the vision of new wineskins…one who knows the real Jesus and has a passion to stir up the people and release them into the giftings and callings they all have. A pastor who knows the Holy Spirit and wants to move with Him into all truth. Someone who will not be satisfied with status quo Christianity; a man who will challenge and inspire every believer to live the radical lifestyle that Jesus taught and modeled. A person who has shameless audacity in preaching the fullness of the gospel and nothing less. Someone whose leadership will mobilize a team of leaders and followers who will impact the neighborhood, the city, the nation and the world.
We desire to be a place that God INHABITS and for our worship of Him to attract His manifest Presence. We want everything we do to be driven by the Presence of God, not by the cleverness of man. When people get to know St. Giles members, we want them to say, as was said of Peter and John, who were unschooled, ordinary men–they were astonished because these men…HAD BEEN WITH JESUS!
St. Giles has active ministries in many areas, and strongly supports foreign missions and local ministries. This includes not only financial support, but also active involvement on the part of a number of members.
The St. Giles congregation dreams big. We have long been faithful. We want to be the birthplace of the next move of God in Charlotte and beyond. We are a diverse, loving community of healers, ministers, worshippers, senders, givers and encouragers. We are eagerly anticipating the arrival of the person God has chosen to lead us forward in bold proclamation of the Word and the power of the Holy Spirit.
