Call for Senior Pastor


With the retirement of our Senior Pastor, Peace Lutheran Church is now opening the Call for a Senior Pastor.

Peace has a 50 year history of serving the Palm Bay, Florida area. We have significantly grown ministries to feed the hungry, house the homeless, provide tutoring, and minister to the youth. Our facilities are open almost every day and evening to many groups in the area supporting addiction recovery, youth activities, and local clubs to support the community.


We are a traditionally Lutheran, primarily retirement-aged congregation of 150 covenant members gathering for both contemporary and traditional worship services, offering communion every Sunday morning. Children enjoy a children’s sermon and children’s church.


As we gaze across our pews we miss the fellowship, energy and enthusiasm of young families that once filled this congregation. We are eager to develop programs and ministries that are engaging and meaningful to all members’ lives and draw us closer together in Christ’s name.


Peace serves a dynamic, rapidly growing community whose needs are expanding faster than our congregational resources can provide. We recognize and accept through our Lord Jesus Christ that growing and sustaining our outreach ministries is a fundamental mission that will define the future of our church.


We are confident that God has already called our new pastor who is praying, as much as we are, to become our new spiritual leader. Please visit the Peace Lutheran Church Website at to find out more about our church and community. Recent surveys conducted to develop our congregational profile are available in the Call Committee section.


Senior Pastor Requirements-the ideal candidate possesses the following qualifications:

1. Ordained, LCMC Certified Pastor or be willing to expeditiously complete the LCMC ordination process.


2. Three years senior pastoral experience or equivalent experience as an assistant/ associate pastor.


3. A calling for and have experience in developing programs for young adults and families.


We prayerfully request you submit your resume, references and statement of doctrine to, which is limited to Call Committee access to protect your privacy.
