ABOUT FIRST CHRISTIAN CHURCH
Located four blocks from Missouri’s Capitol, First Christian Church of Jefferson City has a significant footprint in the community. We serve hundreds of families per month through our Food Pantry and participate with other congregations in a Transformational Housing program that helps provide affordable housing for residents.
We are especially proud of our work with East School – a nearby public school – where our members serve as mentors to students, provide support to teachers, and coordinate a yearly Block Party that brings our congregation together with East’s families, faculty, and staff.Sundays at First Christian offer opportunities for members to enjoy both traditional and contemporary services, and music plays a vital role in the life of the church, thanks to our talented musicians, singers, and directors.
A financially stable church with diverse membership, First Christian Church is in the heart of Jefferson City, where residents and visitors have convenient access to a variety of amenities, including popular restaurants, historic sites, locally owned shops, and areas for outdoor recreation.
We are searching for an associate minister to support the work of our senior minister in leading the congregation and fulfilling our stated vision of “Growing closer to God to serve as we are called.” This person will be charged with creating and directing a Discipleship (Christian Formation) program from children through adults and implementing a Connection Ministry from first time visit to involvement in an intentional journey of spiritual growth. Congregational profile available on request.
