Job Description:

The Evangelical Free Church of Mt. Morris (IL) is seeking a full-time associate pastor to give leadership to youth ministry and worship ministry, as well as partnering in general pastoral ministry with the senior pastor and elders. 


To be considered, he must meet the biblical qualifications for elders (1 Timothy 3:1-7; Titus 1:5-9).  Experience in full-time ministry is a plus, but not necessary.  A Master of Divinity degree is preferred, but not required.  Financial assistance is available for completing an M.Div. while doing ministry.


As a pastor to our youth, he will shepherd students and serve parents as a resource for spiritual leadership within their families.  This ministry should reflect the mission of the church in making disciples of Jesus Christ through a balance of worship, Bible teaching, service, and outreach.  Primary responsibilities include a high school Sunday School class and evening youth group.


As a pastor and worship leader, he will shepherd the congregation in the corporate expression and experience of God’s grace and glory.  We use a range of worship styles to express and benefit from the historical, generational, and cultural diversity of the body of Christ.  Primary responsibilities include planning Sunday worship services and coordinating worship teams.


Mt. Morris is a small town in northwest Illinois, set in the gently rolling hills of the Rock River valley.  It is about 30 miles southwest of Rockford and 100 miles west of downtown Chicago.  Our church is a healthy congregation with an average Sunday attendance of 225.  The congregation includes young and old from Mt. Morris and several surrounding communities.  We recently celebrated 60 years of ministry as a church.
