Job Description:

Early Chapel Christian Church is an independent Christian church with a membership of just under 50 Christ-centered people who love, value, and respect one another. We are located in a rural setting just outside of Earlham Iowa. We’re seeking an individual to lead our congregation. We are a small congregation with only this one paid position. Our pastor will find many avenues of leadership and assistance within Early Chapel. Some of them are monthly board meetings; an active Eldership; committees for Worship, Christian ED, Outreach and a Christian Women’s Fellowship group. We look forward to welcoming a new pastor into our family.


We seek a candidate interested in joining our spiritual community, a person that has a deep and abiding love for God and a strong commitment to sharing God's love with others. We also need someone who lives out their messages by performing acts of love and service. Though small in size, Early Chapel makes a large, positive impact on our community through various outreach ministries, we want a pastor who supports and participates in our community service efforts.


We have listed a few of our beliefs or practices:

-we believe in baptism by immersion, when ones spiritual maturity brings them to that choice.

-communion is part of our weekly worship service.

-we believe the Lord's table is open to all who wish to partake.

-we believe homosexuality is a sin, however not an unforgivable sin, by the same repentance available to all sinners.

-we believe in women in leadership positions, including deacons and elders.

-finally we believe the Bible is the inspired word of God.


Below we have listed qualities we would look for in our Pastor:

-is a person of God who feels they have been called into the ministry.

-Willingness to assist the Elder's in hospital calls and visits to shut ins.

-Attendance at monthly Board meetings, committee meetings and Elder meetings.

-Willing to lead Bible Study, youth group, and other member activities.

-Has a basic computer literacy.

-Be a visible member of our community, seeking the lost.


We’re excited to open our doors and our hearts to an individual who is a devout follower of Jesus Christ and who is well grounded in Biblical teaching and preaching. A pastor that shares our views on weekly Communion and immersion baptism. We appreciate sermons that are scriptural, thought-provoking, and inspirational, thereby drawing us closer to God. Our pastor should not be afraid to challenge and convict us.


We look forward to welcoming a new pastor to our church family. If you are interested in growing our church and sharing our vision, we would love to hear from you.


We would like to thank you for considering Early Chapel as you follow God's direction for your life and ministry. Please email
