First CRC is a congregation of about 500 souls, founded in 1900, in an agricultural community of 15,000, 15 minutes from Bellingham, WA, 2 hours from Seattle, 45 minutes from Vancouver, BC. We are a multi-generational church of young families to senior saints. We are committed to our Reformed roots building on a foundation of Biblical, expository teaching for all ages.
We are seeking a full-time, ordained associate pastor to provide general pastoral ministry in the flock to support our senior pastor, including preaching, with specific focus on overseeing our ministry to youth, young adults and young families.
We are seeking a candidate with a sincere commitment to Jesus and a heart for building up the body of Christ, able to motivate, disciple, and equip the saints for service. He should have an MDiv or equivalent, a few years practical experience in pastoral and youth ministry with gifts in building relationships, communication, leading, teaching, counseling and preaching. He will be a good fit with our church and current leadership.
