Job Description

PASTORAL RESIDENT to join our pastoral team. It is the desire to provide our residents with the broad sweep of what it means to be a minister in the local church, and to do so with intention. What sets a Pastoral Residency apart from simply hiring an associate pastor on a temporary basis is the church’s desire to equip the resident to the best of our ability. Our program is 18-24 months which includes shared pastoral duties of preaching, teaching, and pastoral care. Residents meet weekly with the Senior Pastor and complete assigned readings to equip them to serve the local church. The ideal candidate possesses a deep personal faith in Jesus Christ and demonstrates a true desire to shape their ministry by the Great Commandment. S/he values Christian unity and ecumenical cooperation. S/he is a mature “people-person” with generalist skills and a passion for developing fellowship and spiritual growth ministries. Ministers of all denominations may apply (M. Div. or M.T.S. required).
