FULL-TIME SENIOR PASTOR – ZION UNITED CHURCH OF CHRIST
Zion UCC/EA is located at the Southern end of Illinois just outside of Metropolis Illinois. Although still a UCC denomination we do not agree with the “open and affirming” policy of the UCC. We have recently joined the Evangelical Association because of our need to seek the truth thru the traditional Bible based Evangelical theology our church was founded on. Over the past several years we have seen our attendance decline and therefore we see ourselves as a mature congregation who still enjoy the occasional sound of babies during worship. We believe that the Holy Spirit is alive and well at Zion and try to display the love of Christ out in our community. We are blessed with an abundance of God’s beautiful creation as we are situated close to Shawnee Nationial Forest, Fort Massac State Park, Mermet Lake and Conservation Area and the Ohio River. It is within these surroundings that we are able to refresh our souls and enjoy the beauty that God has created.
As we seek a new pastor we remain open and listening to the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Like most churches, we are looking for a Pastor who loves the Lord and is passionate about serving God and his children. A Pastor who will reach out to the community and help bring in young families; while at the same time serve the needs of our older core members. A Pastor who will come to be considered a friend and family member by all who come to worship at Zion. Yes, rebuilding will be a challenge but as followers of Christ we are used to challenges. Prayers for guidance as we seek a new settled Pastor.
Salary: $35,000. Parsonage included.
