Interim Pastor needed for a lively congregation in the beautiful Fraser Valley.
This one-year (or nine month), full time (or 3/4 time) position with Agassiz CRC is ideal for a retired minister who would like to enjoy a beautiful setting while providing preaching (Sunday am) and pastoral care. We hope to successfully call and welcome a new pastor by summer 2018 but would very much appreciate a consistent presence in the pulpit in the meantime.
Rooted in the local farming community, Agassiz CRC has both multi-generational CRC families and newer neighbours who dropped by and remained to help us grow into a loving community church with strong ties to the broader neighbourhood. Coffee Break and Story Hour, Cadets, GEMS, Small Groups and Sunday School are all lively and have grown in the past year, but they are not the responsibility of the pastor. Worship Teams are available to help with the Sunday morning service (blended worship styles) and a Senior Care Team helps to provide regular visits to those who are ill or elderly. We have about 80 confessing members plus a significant number of others who regularly worship with us.
