Ivanrest Christian Reformed Church is seeking a Senior Pastor to lead our congregation in worship, discipleship and ministry. We are looking for an experienced pastor to guide and nurture our congregation while equipping us to be servant leaders and witnesses to the community and beyond.
We believe the ideal candidate should possess a mature faith in the Triune God with the desire to continue learning and fostering their own relationship with Christ. Applicants must have the ability to look forward and future-plan for continued change and adaptability within culture and its impact to the church. This person must be an ordained pastor in the Christian Reformed or Reformed Church of America.
The Ivanrest community is constantly seeking to grow God’s kingdom through active discipleship. Our Sunday services are multi-generational with the goal of having meaningful, biblical, and joyful corporate worship that honors God and edifies His people. Our congregation, including members, guests and visitors, is engaged in many forms of worship, including ministry, missionaries and outreach. Ivanrest has a combination of children, youth, young adult, and adult ministry programs designed to enrich our knowledge and ask the hard questions. We are passionate about local outreach in the greater Grand Rapids area, as well as supporting global missionaries, many of whom have been supported by our church for over ten years.
Ivanrest is located in Grandville, Michigan, part of the greater Grand Rapids metropolitan area. In the surrounding area you will find Lake Michigan beaches, a bustling Grand Rapids downtown and cultural community and many interesting family activities to engage in. The city of Grandville is also loaded with local events and plenty to keep you involved in the area. We are blessed with a dynamic and robust staff at Ivanrest that are eager to work with and be led by the Senior Pastor. We look forward to learning more about you during this process!
