Hope Church is looking for a lead pastor who is an engaging, interesting, Bible-focused preacher of God’s love for us as revealed in God’s Word. The sermons should offer insights that the congregation can ‘take home and discuss.’
The lead pastor should be enthusiastic about the worship experience, bringing energy and passion to the liturgy and prayers. A love for music as expressed in both traditional hymns and modern praise music is a welcome addition.
The lead pastor will be involved in teaching adults Bible studies and leading disciple-building education. This should include a desire and ability to mentor people on their spiritual journeys.
The lead pastor should be a good listener, comfortable and capable of providing Christian counsel and pastoral care in a variety of private and public settings, including hospitals and nursing homes.
We desire a lead pastor who understands and will set aside time for their own spiritual disciplines. This should then lead to modeling and teaching spiritual disciplines to the congregation.
The lead pastor will bring a vision and goals for the future of Hope Church, to be developed with the Consistory and Teams, and possess an ability to motivate people in working toward the achievement of the vision and goals.
In conclusion, we desire our next lead pastor to be passionate about bringing the Good News of God’s Word in a variety of methods to our church community, leading and teaching us to embrace the ‘dechurched’, the ‘lost’, and the ‘searching’ with God’s love in Christ as we strive to be hope in the heart of the city we are called to serve.
