Senior Minister

If you are interested in applying please send your resume to with something in the subject line letting us know that you are sending a resume. 

Our congregation is made up of a variety of ages with quite a few young families and many who have been in the church for years and years. On average we have 100 people who come to church. We have contemporary music and communion served every week. 

Our church mission statement is, “To make more and better disciples of Jesus for the glory of God,” based out of Matthew 28.19-20. To this end, we offer different ways for each age group to encounter Jesus outside of Sunday morning service with an after school program for the kids, youth group for the older students, and small groups for the adults. 

We currently have a part-time secretary, a part-time Associate minister of Youth, and a 1⁄4 time kid’s church coordinator on staff. We are also currently in search of a 1⁄4 time worship leader to hire. 

Our past two ministers were here for quite long stints (9.5 years to the most recent and nearly 40 years for the Senior Minister prior to him). Our desire for our next hire would be someone who would be willing to stick around for a good amount of time as well.
