Church: Six Mile Run Reformed Church
Address: 3037 State Route 27 Franklin Park, New Jersey 08823
Position Being Hired: Minister of Word and Sacrament
Position is: Part time
Ministry Type: RCA
With the guidance of Our Lord Jesus Christ, the Six Mile Run Reformed Church is searching for a new Minister of Word and Sacrament. Our small but dedicated congregation has a centuries long history in Franklin Park and the surrounding area. We desire to pair with a minister who will help us grow as disciples of Christ, reaching out in ministry, to the diverse communities that surround us. Our location at the juncture of three separate towns affords us an opportunity to minister to a great number of peoples from a wide variety of backgrounds and interests.
We hope to find a pastor of many talents. A pastor with leadership skills who can strengthen our current programs, help develop lay leaders, help our congregants find their gifts and put them to use, engage with our community, and celebrate the diversity of our church family. Although we typically have a traditional RCA style of worship, we are open to contemporary and innovative worship styles. We would like someone whose sermons are interesting, thought provoking and relates to everyday life. We would also like someone who is organized and has strong technological skills to move us forward in this modern world. We need a pastor who can help us attract younger people and families that will be the future of our church, while nurturing our aging congregants. Being comfortable leading diverse congregations is a must and experience leading congregations in transition would be desirable. Most important, he/she must be strong in their faith and a committed follower of Jesus.
Our pastor would be a part of the South Brunswick Clergy Association, an interfaith organization of clergy from many faiths that work together for the benefit of our communities. Participation in other clergy associations in the area would help fulfill our mission to be more involved in our communities.
We have a dedicated, caring consistory, many committees and missions in various stages of development, and open-minded, welcoming members from all corners of the world who are eager to work with our next pastor.
Given that the position is part time, we realize that flexibility will be necessary as we learn together what can realistically be accomplished. We hope that as congregation and pastor work together to live the vision and mission of Six Mile Run, we will grow and we will be able to transition the position to full time.
The Six Mile Run Reformed church is located between New Brunswick and Princeton, in the heart of central New Jersey. This area is rich with opportunities for employment, health care, education, recreation, history and culture as well as spiritual growth.
