Settled Pastor – Vision of Hope MCC

posted in: MCC Jobs, Pastoral Openings | 0

Vision of Hope MCC in Mountville, PA is now accepting applications to become our settled Pastor.

Founded in 1980, we are currently a family sized church with 28 members and an average attendance of 25-30 for worship. We’ve been a larger church in the past and we believe God will grow us in the future. We don’t want to grow simply for growth’s sake, we want to expand our community to include everyone. Our church wants to become more diverse and create a more inclusive environment for worship, and have already started by adding Spanish and Hebrew to our services.   We are seeking a prayerful pastor who has a clear and realistic vision of how to help us achieve our goals and fulfill our mission. In order to be successful, the ideal candidate must be compassionate, be willing to be involved with our community, yet remain professional and treat each member of our congregation equally.  Experience with a diverse group of people is a must.  We love Jesus!  So it is important to have a Pastor who is Christ-centered in everything he or she does in the church.  And most importantly, our new Pastor will be willing to take the time to earn our trust. While we are ready for a new pastor and a new start, some of our wounds are still healing.  Because of our small size we are only able to offer a part time position now, with the possibility of becoming full time if we grow large enough.  If you think God may be calling you to minister with us, please contact our pastoral search chair (Faith Goodwin  for our information packet and an application form.

We will be accepting applications until February 17, 2017.
