Job Posting: Pastor
Guelph Vineyard Christian Fellowship
Part-time or Full-time Position – 3-5 days/week
The Guelph Vineyard Christian Fellowship is a small, multi-generational church based in Guelph, Ontario, Canada. Guelph is a unique community of over 130,000 people situated just 100 km west of Toronto. Guelph is consistently rated as one of Canada’s best places to live – in part due to its low crime and unemployment rates, clean environment, green space, and recreational trails. It is a city that embodies intergenerational community. Guelph has numerous elementary and secondary schools, two post-secondary institutions – the University of Guelph and Conestoga College, as well as an active adult lifestyle/retirement community.
We are searching for a Pastor who will lead a church, spiritually and operationally, that, after two years of transition, has emerged as a vibrant, multi-generational (50% children) community, bound together by a mission to “Follow Jesus Together”.
Though our church is a few decades old, we are in a stage much more similar to that of a church plant (or re-plant) where we need focus, direction, and renewed energy.
The role of the Pastor is to partner with our Leadership Team and church congregation in fulfilling the work God is calling us to in Guelph. The Pastor will share our Vineyard values (https://www.vineyard.ca/about.php), maintaining an active relationship with the regional and national Vineyard leaders.
Our Biggest Need
In our current season, we need a Pastor whose primary gifting is that of a facilitator, orchestrator, and integrator. We are looking for a catalytic gatherer.
We need a leader who leads with rather than for. The leader will come alongside people, co-discerning their gifts and partnering to launch them into God’s purposes for their lives.
Given that 50% of our congregation are children, we also need a leader who can help to integrate the generations.
