Full-Time Pastor, Christ Community Church
Christ Community Church is a faithful, growing, God-seeking congregation in the Pioneer Valley in western Massachusetts. We are searching for a full-time pastor to join the senior pastor to minister to our multi-generational, multi-racial congregation and reach our valley for Christ. This pastor will work alongside our senior pastor and focus his efforts on organizing and growing ministries; supporting Sunday morning worship activities; growing our outreach efforts within the community; preaching and teaching, and other areas consistent with the candidate’s experience, gifts and training.
The candidate should meet the requirements of I Timothy 3 and Titus 1, have a vibrant, growing relationship with Jesus, be dependent on prayer and the study of Scripture for his ministry, and have a zeal for advancing the gospel.
Rigorous formal or informal education is essential. Seminary training or a college degree is preferred. He must be a lifelong learner, intellectually curious and given to reading and growing in his understanding. He must demonstrate that his education and experience have given him a solid understanding of Scripture and theology. He must have a proven track record of leading others and at least several years of experience in church leadership and administration.
We are praying for a pastor who loves people, is humble, coachable and flexible in spirit, and whose family supports and partners in his ministry. We are looking for a man who will wisely and gently shepherd the flock of Christ and effectively teach and apply God’s Word. The candidate will be able to present the gospel to unbelievers committed to secular lifestyles and demonstrate to them the beauty and goodness of the gospel of Christ.
