Job Description:

 

We are a congregation which was first established in 1807. Over the years we have developed a network of ministries that have been fine-tuned with each generation learning from the one before it. You will find us to be a group of people with quiet but deep spiritual convictions that are openly expressed in our works of service to each other, to our extended church family, and to the community that surrounds us.

 

We started the process of moving out of the PCUSA in 2011 and with great joy made the final steps to enter into the Evangelical Presbyterian Church body of Believers in 2016. We are now walking forward with great anticipation of what the Lord has planned for our congregation.

 

We are seeking a full-time pastor who is ordained through the Evangelical Presbyterian Church (EPC) or who is ordainable through the EPC. The basic requirements include ordination through a Reformed denomination, a masters of Divinity, and demonstration of alignment with the Westminster Confession.

 

As pastor you would have a staff of 8 part-time people who oversee youth ministry, music ministry, administrative duties, finances, and facility maintenance.  In addition there are a number of key volunteers and committees that do the work of the church who would be under your care. We have 100 members with an average attendance of 88 committed Believers. Bergen NY has a population of 3,000 and is 25 miles west of the Upstate City of Rochester, NY. The church, with the Manse next door, is placed in a warm community with a classic look and feel of an old style village. We have a $200,000 annual budget with pastoral compensation consisting of cash, numerous expenses paid, health insurance, life insurance, retirement benefits, utilities, and a spacious Manse to call home.

 

We are seeking a pastor who, through the power of the Holy Spirit, is called to spread the love of God to the people of this church and this community. If that person is you…as a result of God’s amazing love you would need to be motivated to dig deep into the Word and your relationship with our risen Savior for purposes of preaching, teaching, counseling, encouraging, and administrating to the end that the Kingdom of God is revealed in the lives of all the people you touch. “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done.”
