In obedience to Jesus’ command to “make disciples of all nations”, Maranatha Christian Reformed Church seeks to nurture and grow, through worship and ministries, the faith of all its members, and the Associate Pastor of Congregational Life (Associate Pastor) will be instrumental in encouraging Maranatha’s members to grow deeper in faith.
This faith will be evidenced by the ability and desire to gather for worship; by growth in both motivation and ability to serve; and by developing relationships with other members for the purpose of accountability, encouragement and support. The Associate Pastor will be responsible for taking the lead in cultivating a culture of faith development.
Maranatha is unique in that roughly 35% of its congregation are 1st generation immigrants, most of whom lived in refugee camps before coming here. Maranatha has become increasingly multicultural with at least 7 distinct cultures present each Sunday. In light of this, the Associate Pastor will be responsible for developing a faith culture hospitable to different cultures and backgrounds.
