Lead Pastor

Job Description

Northglenn Christian Church (NCC) is located in Northglenn, Colorado, meeting on five acres at a prime location in a 40,000 square-foot facility. Northglenn is a stable suburban community on the north side of the greater Denver metropolitan area. It is a middle-class, blue-collar city with a population of approximately 38,000 made up predominately of whites and includes a growing Latino population. Northglenn offers all the amenities of a major metropolitan area while maintaining a small-town feeling.

Due to the resignation of the previous Lead Pastor, NCC is seeking to hire a Lead Pastor who will participate in a smooth transition and will replace the previous Lead Pastor.

NCC is a healthy, stable, multigenerational congregation that averages 228 in attendance. We offer two services each Lord’s Day that include both contemporary and traditional formats. The Lead Pastor preaches in both services and may be assisted throughout the year by the preaching elders.

The Lead Pastor candidate must be:

  • Committed to the scriptures and committed to preaching them accurately and correctly.
  • Rooted in the heritage of the Restoration Movement and preferably educated in one of our independent Christian Church colleges.
  • Capable through experience to lead a church the size and ministry scope of NCC.
  • Prepared to serve as one of the church’s elders as prescribed in NCC By-laws.
  • Able to oversee and supervise a staff of 4-6 individuals.
  • Competent in the following major areas of ministry: preaching and teaching, administration, calling, counseling and management.

Church Prospectus/Who We Are:
Northglenn Christian Church began serving this community in 1960. We are a part of the Restoration Movement.  The Restoration Movement began when a group of Jesus-followers looked at how the church had begun in the Book of Acts as compared to what the church had become. They just didn’t align. They began to yearn for the church to return to what it used to be.

When they read the Book of Acts they saw a church that was centered around the person and mission of Jesus. They were ‘one in heart and mind’ (Acts 4:32a) often setting aside their needs for the needs of the community and those in need. Acts 4:32b says, “no one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had.” We see in the early church a new community that shared their lives with one another, taking a vested interest in the physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being of everyone in the community. It is a Kingdom of WE not ME.

The result of a community like this is a church empowered and engaged in community with one another and united in the Jesus mission of making disciples. This is a true Kingdom community. This is God’s plan and purpose for the church… for Northglenn Christian Church.
While far from perfect, Northglenn Christian Church is devoted to being a church who does life together as we go into our community, and our world, making disciples by serving our neighbors in truth and action.

Our Mission: To make disciples who make disciples.
Our Vision: To serve our neighbors in truth and action.

Congregational Profile:
We are a multi-generational church seeking to meet the needs of the existing generation while always building up the next generation. We are both traditional and contemporary. We are committed to providing a familiar traditional space for our older generations, while providing a space for the next generation to grow. The same sermon is preached in each of the services.

Traditional: Our traditional service is at 9am. We sing hymns and choruses, have a choir, and celebrate the rich history of traditional worship. This service is held in our elegant chapel. Currently this is the larger of the two services. We have experienced growth in this service. While many other churches in the area are moving toward more contemporary environments, people are finding our traditional service refreshing.

Contemporary: Our contemporary service is at 10:30am. The worship time is led by a praise band, we sing modern worship songs accompanied by electric guitars, drums and keyboards. This service is held in our large auditorium. This service is also growing.

Where We Serve:
Northglenn is a suburb of Denver, sitting about 7 miles north of downtown. The city of Northglenn is small – just 7.5 square miles with about 38,000 residents. However, we serve a much larger community. We have congregants come from all the surrounding communities – Thornton (135,000 people), Westminster (112,000 people), Commerce City/Henderson (68,000 people), and Broomfield (67,000 people). Being in a suburb, you have access to the big city, without the busyness of the city. It is a great place to call home.

The Numbers:
We currently average just over 200 people. We’ve been experiencing consistent growth over the past couple years as we recovered from the pandemic. Before the pandemic we were averaging just under 300. During the pandemic, we dipped down to around 150 people. Many attend our outdoor services plus others watching our online service recording. Current growth consists of both returning congregants and a lot of new people.

The 9am service is healthy, almost at max capacity in our chapel. There is a real need in the area for traditional worship spaces. The 10:30am service is growing. We’ve seen most of our growth in this service since the new year. For whatever reason, this service got hit much harder from the pandemic, and growth came slow at first. Everything is tracking up.

We are in our best financial state in the history of the church. Even in the pandemic, giving remained consistent and we were able to pay all our bills on time. With the current growth, giving is up. We are exceeding our giving goals. In March of 2022, we held a special fundraiser to address some maintenance issues around the building and raised $110,000. Northglenn is a generous church.

What We Do:
One of our primary goals is to make disciples that make disciples. Jesus’ Great Commission is for everyone. We want to be a people who ‘go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything Jesus has commanded us.’ (Matthew 28:18-20).

Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, we want to help you grow. We want to help you discover God’s will for your life and engage in community. We do this by encouraging everyone to participate in three areas of spiritual growth. We call this UP, IN, and OUT. God is able to transform and renew us when we believe in Him, seek His will and abide in the good works that He has prepared for us to do.

It all begins with upward growth. We grow UP by regularly participating in Sunday worship. Sunday morning is our time to worship through song, partake in communion, and be challenged by his Word. We are also encouraged to engage in daily personal quiet times of study and prayer.

Next, we grow IN as we engage in community through a Life Group or Sunday School class. Joining a group is the best way to meet new people and set deep roots in our church family. We become better connected when we share our experiences together, minister to one another, seek God’s wisdom and gain strength in unity.

Ultimately, the goal is to grow OUT. We want to be disciples who make disciples. We grow out by regularly participating in a ministry or mission. There are many ways to serve Christ. This can be done within the church, in the local community, or even throughout the world, in Jesus name!

We strongly encourage all our people to commit to all three areas of spiritual growth – come to Sunday Worship every week, be involved in a life group or Bible study, and engage in a mission or ministry.

What We Believe:

The Bible
The Bible is God’s word to us. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error (Mark 13:31; Psalm 12:6, 119:105,160; Isaiah 40:8; Hebrews 4:12; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Proverbs 30:5).


God is the creator and the Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are coequal and are one God (Genesis 1:26-27, 3:22; Psalm 90:2;  Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:13)

Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to heaven and will return someday (Matthew 1:22-23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5,14; 14:10-13; Hebrews 4:14-15; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Romans 1:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14-15; Titus 2:13).

Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is co-equal with God and Jesus. He is present in the world to make people aware of their need for salvation through Jesus. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives all believers spiritual gifts when they are saved. As Christians, we must seek to live under his Lordship daily (2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-14, 14:16-17; Acts 2:38; 1:8; 2 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; Ephesians 1:13, 5:18; Galatians 5:25).


Human beings are made in the image of God to be like him in character. People are the supreme object of God’s creation. We were made to know and love God and to reflect His perfect nature. We were made to be holy, just as He is holy; everything that is not holy will be destroyed (Genesis 1:27; 5:1; Psalm 8:3-6; James 3:9; 1 Peter 1:15-16; 2 Peter 3:11-12).

All human beings have sinned. Although every person has a tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called sin. This attitude separates us from God and causes many problems in our lives (Isaiah 53:6, 59:1-2; Romans 3:23).

Salvation is God’s gift to us, but we must accept it. We can never make up for sin by self- improvement or good works or being religious. Only by trusting in Jesus as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. When we turn in faith from a self-ruled life to Jesus’ Lordship and demonstrate that faith through baptism, we are saved (Acts 2:37-39, 4:12; Romans 5:1; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 14:6; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26).

We believe that baptism is by immersion into Jesus Christ. It is our natural response of faith and obedience when we choose to surrender to Jesus. Baptism is a crucial step in the process of salvation along with belief, repentance, confession, and bearing fruit. (Acts 2:38-41; Romans 6:3-7; Colossians 2:12; Galatians 3:26-27).

We believe the Bible teaches that God established marriage in the beginning as a lifelong, exclusive relationship between one man and one woman. God has reserved sexual intimacy as an expression of love and commitment in marriage, and that any intimate expression of sexuality outside of Biblical marriage is sin. (Genesis 1:27- 28, 31, 2:24-25; 1 Corinthians 7:2-6; Matthew 19:5; 1 Corinthians 6:13, 18-20; Ephesians 5:22- 33; Romans 1:24-28).

God continues His ministry of reconciliation through the church. We are the new Body of Christ on earth, commissioned to be transformed into His image and charged to duplicate His ministries while He was on earth. Having our character shaped in the image of Christ and being able to participate in God’s work are accomplished through the power of the Holy Spirit in us. A Christian must be a member of a local body of believers in order to be a faithful follower and servant of Jesus (1 Corinthians 12:4-5,12,27; 2 Corinthians 5:18-19; Ephesians 4:11-13; 1 Peter 4:10-11).
