Bethel CRC in Zeeland, Michigan is seeking a pastor who will share in our vision and encourage us in our mission to be a “community rooted in the love and acceptance of Jesus Christ, ignited by the Holy Spirit to be growing in and sharing our faith in Zeeland and beyond.”
Bethel is a small, multi-generational church on the east side of Zeeland, Michigan. In 2016 Bethel began the Renewal Lab at Calvin Seminary. The process renewed a passion for the gospel, hospitality, and outreach. Our goal is to put the gospel at the center of our worship and our ministries. We are intentional about making visitors feel welcome and loved during the service and in fellowship.
Our passion for outreach stems from our call as God’s people and our placement by God in this part of Zeeland. We strive to live out our vision: “Bethel: a community rooted in the love and acceptance of Jesus Christ, ignited by the Holy Spirit to be growing in and sharing our faith in Zeeland and beyond.”
We are seeking a pastor who shares our vision and encourages us in our mission. Additional qualities we are looking for in our future pastor:
- Embraces Biblical/gospel preaching with different styles of presentation.
