Nevis Church of Christ is a non-denominational church based in the lakes area of northern Minnesota. We are currently taking applications for the position of lead pastor to fill the vacancy created by our current minister who is soon retiring.
We are an evangelistic congregation of approximately 80 people (100-120 during summer months). We have a staff youth minister and team that facilitates our youth ministries that includes weekly school release time, after-school youth group, junior worship as well as incorporating youth into our morning worship. We are in close proximity to our Bible camp which we help support and work with. Our church takes great pride in the fact that we will fund all of our youth (and some others) to experience the richness of a Bible camp experience.
In addition to our youth ministry we have an active women’s missionary group, men’s group, and bible studies. Our ladies group does a wonderful job of follow-up with first time attendees, We also have a growing bus ministry with a new bus that can accommodate those with physical disabilities.
Some of our yearly events include a community wide Christmas Eve dinner and service, Vacation Bible School, and our Spirit Life outdoor concert featuring various national Christian recording artists.
We are an established church (over a century now). We are patchwork quilt making to contemporary praise and worship and all points in between. We are almost to our goal to facilitate a traditional as well as a contemporary service. Being in a vacation area we have a number of retirees. We want to honor, minister to as well as evangelize to that segment as much as we do the youth and young families.
We realize that we are works in progress and need to grow in many ways. Discipleship, evangelizing and mentoring are to name a few. Our ideal candidate would aid in these areas as well as teach sound doctrine based solely on scripture.
We offer a competitive salary and housing allowance package as well other benefits. This is a full time position but we will accept resumes from those who prefer to “tent make” as well perform their ministry. Please submit resume with cover letter and salary requirements.
