SENIOR PASTOR AT GRACE FELLOWSHIP COMMUNITY CHURCH IN SAN FRANSISCO, CALIFORNIA

Objective

Grace Fellowship Community Church (GFCC), a Cumberland Presbyterian congregation based in the Mission District of San Francisco, is offering a full-time position for an experienced senior pastor for a congregation following a time of transition.

Background

GFCC emerged in 1983 from the Cumberland Presbyterian Chinese Church with a vision to serve God as an expression of His Kingdom in San Francisco. Originally a small, predominantly Chinese-American congregation, with the majority of members having similar age and socio-economic position, it has since become a more multi-ethnic, multi-generational congregation. GFCC has had 2 senior pastors in its 35 year history; the founding pastor served until his death in 2006, at which time the founding associate pastor assumed the senior role until 2018. Throughout its history, GFCC has placed a high value on commitment to the church community, leading to ingrained patterns and approaches to ministry, leadership practices, and other aspects of church life. While much of this has been valuable and beneficial, parts have incurred dysfunctional aspects, including a tendency to stifle individual spiritual formation.  Recently, the church has experienced multiple challenges with the pandemic with services moving on-line.  We have been well served with an interim pastor and leaders focusing on spiritual growth and healing.

GFCC is part of the Del Cristo Presbytery of the Cumberland Presbyterian denomination. It is fully self-supporting. Historically 150 people attended services each Sunday. GFCC has historically placed a high value on the centrality of God’s word, and has also gathered for a mid-week formational time (often in the form of Bible study).

Synopsis of Job Description

The Senior Pastor will act as a companion on the church’s journey. S/he will oversee the teaching and preaching ministry, the health of the organization and staff, and will moderate the Session.   The Senior Pastor will be expected to offer some one to one pastoral counseling (not therapy or spiritual direction).

  • Evangelism Inspired by Justice & Compassion – Embodies and promotes Christ’s ethic at personal and societal levels; prioritizes development of congregational ethic in recognizing and dismantling unjust and oppressive systems and in relating the gospel to people within the church and in the world.
  • Pastoral Care – Shepherds the flock; meets and visits with congregation members in midst of crises or in need of guidance at a crossroads; promotes/creates space for congregational healing.
  • Preaching – Communicates the gospel through sermons and relating its truth to life; coordinates with the worship planning team to plan worship services.
  • Spiritual Formation – Shapes the congregation’s life to develop and promote spiritual maturity; in participating with the Holy Spirit: equips the congregation to be Christians in all areas of life in how they live, love, and serve one another and their neighbors; shepherds the congregation in spiritual practices and rhythms, as they are being formed in the image of God.

Minimum requirements

  • Minimum of 5 years associate or senior level pastoral leadership experience.
  • Graduate theological degree or equivalent thereof.
  • Experience with preaching.
  • Candidate must either be ordained in the Cumberland Presbyterian denomination or be approved by Del Cristo Presbytery if ordained in another denomination. GFCC and Presbytery Del Cristo recognize that other denominational traditions have different requirements for ordination and respect that other denominational practices might be helpful to our growth in Christ. In the same way, the Presbytery expects the Pastor to show respect for the Cumberland polity, tradition and history.
  • The Candidate will be asked to submit references from previous churches s/he has served in this capacity which will include preaching/teaching recordings.

VICAR/RECTOR AT CHURCH OF THE ASCENSION IN MARION, INDIANA

Parish Profile
Church of the Ascension is a mission parish in the Anglican Diocese of the Great Lakes. Ascension began meeting on the Feast of the Ascension, 2017. We have grown from three founding families to an average weekly attendance of 45 – 50 people. Our congregation is generationally diverse, with a significant number of families with young children as well as a number of college students who attend during the academic year. Ascension is located two blocks from Indiana Wesleyan University and 20 minutes from Taylor University. Fostering relationships with students and faculty from both campuses has been a source of enrichment to our congregation. Marion is conveniently located within easy driving distance of the larger metro centers of Indianapolis, Ft. Wayne and Muncie. Marion, like many smaller midwestern cities, has suffered economic setbacks over recent decades. Since the church’s location is in an impoverished section of Marion, we seek opportunities to extend the love of Christ to our immediate neighbors affected by these setbacks.

Nourished in word and sacrament on Sunday mornings, it is our desire to be the leaven of Christ to those around us. Most in our community are not cradle Anglicans, but they have grown to deeply appreciate the liturgy, the church calendar, and our Anglo-Catholic style of worship. We are a group of people who desire to share life together as the Body of Christ, as evident by our extended coffee hour, commitment to small groups, and other times of fellowship and common prayer. It is the mission of the Church of the Ascension to be centered in the eucharist, formed by the liturgy, intentional about growth in the Spirit, and known for the hospitality we extend to each other and to those beyond our doors.

The Vicar/Rector We Seek
Church of the Ascension is searching for a vicar/rector who is, before all things, a man of prayer and a student of scripture. We are looking for someone whose life in word and action bear witness to the love of Christ. We desire a vicar/rector who will protect the identity we’ve established and encourage us to build upon this identity as we trust in the Triune God. In short, we are looking for someone who is committed to Jesus and who has a heart for others.

Professional Qualifications:
We desire a Vicar/Rector who…
1. Possesses a Masters of Divinity or similar degree.
2. Is ordained in the Anglican Church of North America.
3. Holds a biblical, orthodox confession of faith.
4. Has experience as an associate or lead pastor.
5. Has excellent interpersonal, communication, and organizational skills.
6. Is able to connect with and minister to members of all ages and educational levels.
7. Is committed to high-church liturgy and will lead us in worship that is reverent and beautiful as well as spirit-led and hospitable. (Our practice of the liturgy has included the use of robes, incense, acolytes, bells, celebrating communion facing the altar, etc.).

Duties of the Vicar/Rector:
Our Vicar/Rector will…
1. Consistently present the Gospel of Christ in both word and example.
2. Coordinate and oversee all worship services at Church of the Ascension.
3. Train and/or coordinate all worship participants, including lectors, acolytes, chalice bearers, musicians, and all others.
4. Encourage, comfort, mentor, and admonish the members of Ascension through sermons, teachings, small groups, church-wide written communication, and by engaging individuals
5. Encourage the regular practice of prayer as framed by the Daily Office.
6. Develop other church-wide worship and service opportunities and train the laity to help lead these developments.
7. Oversee Christian education in the parish, both for children and adults.
8. Conduct instruction for Baptism, Confirmation, and Reception into the church.
9. Love and care for our congregation in all the joys and challenges of life, especially in relation to birth, marriage, sickness, grief, and death.
10. Model and encourage care for the needs of marginalized and spiritually lost through service and outreach locally and abroad.
11. Lead the Mission Council in its administration of, and care for, Church of the Ascension.
12. Lead an annual business and development meeting for the church.
13. Lead the congregation through the transition from a mission church to a parish.
14. Demonstrate personal commitment to spiritual renewal and professional growth.
15. Complete an annual professional review with leaders in the church, or diocese in accordance with the bylaws of the church.
16. Model appropriate self-care by managing time, commitments, and rest appropriately. Church of the Ascension has an annual budget of around $60,000. About 3/5ths of this is dedicated to compensation for our vicar/rector. As we continue to grow we will be eager to offer full-time compensation.

Applicants, please respond with a letter of introduction and interest, a current resume, three references (one personal and two employment-related), and a recording of a recent

SENIOR PASTOR OF FIRST JAPANESE BAPTIST CHURCH IN FORT WORTH, TX

The Big Picture
First Japanese Baptist Church (https://firstjapanesebc.org) is a very small, evangelical church in Fort Worth, TX, seeking a full-time Senior Pastor who is committed to expositional preaching and sound, doctrinal teaching of God’s Word, while graciously taking care of the spiritual needs of the congregation.

The Church
First Japanese Baptist Church began in the 1970’s as a Japanese mission of Gambrell Street Baptist Church. In 1986, the Japanese mission fellowship stepped out from under the wings of Gambrell Street Baptist Church and became an independent church. This church was started by a group of Japanese Christian believers who desired to worship God together in their mother tongue, adhering to Biblical truth and growing in Christ through the Word, songs, prayer, and fellowship. We do not own our church building and are financially stable, albeit that monthly amount is quite low. Due to the unique situation of Japanese pastors generally only being able to pastor while a student, our pastor turn over rate is quite high. Because we are a very small congregation and cannot provide a work visa for a full time pastor, our previous Japanese pastors have served as long as they were able. Our current pastor had been called to serve full time as a church planter in Japan, and because his schooling is finished he and his family will go soon, and we are now searching for the next man of God to shepherd the church and faithfully preach the Word of God.

The Candidate
We are looking for an ordained man who is committed to expositional preaching and sound, doctrinal teaching of God’s Word. The ideal candidate would be Japanese and Japanese speaking, have some pastoral experience, a desire to shepherd God’s flock, and a commitment to a Gospel-centered ministry to both the lost and the saints, and a willingness to serve while being bivocational. This is a full-time position.

The Qualifications
We require a gracious, patient, and kind man that meets the qualifications in I Timothy and Titus. The pulpit has been faithfully filled over the years and we want a new pastor who is also gifted at preaching and teaching the Word of God. The church is congregational led, young, eager to grow in the Word of God and praying for the next pastor God would have for us.

The Process
Please look over the job description and the church website. Along with your resume please answer these three questions:
Why do you believe that you might be a good fit for First Japanese Baptist Church?
Describe your experiences in ministry and how you may be qualified to serve as the Senior Pastor at First Japanese Baptist Church?

SENIOR PASTOR AT MESSIAH CHRISTIAN CHURCH IN WELLS, MAINE

Messiah Christian Church in Wells, Maine, (https://messiahchristianchurch.org/) is actively searching for the Senior Pastor whom God has called to help lead our church family into its next exciting phase of growth!

History:
In 1988, our church was planted by our current and founding Pastor Dan Moore and his wife, Rosemary. Their vision was for a loving and warm, interdenominational church where people would grow into loving, mature and equipped followers of Christ and then be deployed for the sake of family, community and global transformation. Messiah pursues this vision through its generous, creative and deeply entrepreneurial spirit; we identify needs and develop creative ways to meet them.

Who we are at Messiah:
• We live in the Wells area year-round, are summer residents of the Wells area, or virtual congregants reaching far and wide. We are young people, singles, families, and seniors comprising a congregation of 150-200 people.
● Our mantra, “Where People Grow,” captures our focus on personal and spiritual growth; we are continually challenged within our unique discipleship model to look inward, grow and apply the Word and the message of Jesus to our lives.
● New folks who come in are understood and accepted for where they are in their own spiritual journey, and then, if they desire, they join into a spiritual growth process that is right for them.
• We are open and welcoming. It sounds cliché to say that a church is a family, but it’s really so true about Messiah.
• We are unified, mature and missional and we desire to be servants in our community through unique outreach initiatives.
• Our church is poised for enormous expansion and as a result of its focus on spiritual growth, a strong foundation of mature, unified believers with a clear vision has been laid.

Characteristics of the Senior Pastor:
• Our desire is for a senior pastor who is a humble person of prayer and is a strong, creative and vibrant servant leader.
• Our new senior pastor will be looking for an opportunity to build on our strong foundation of disciple making, is excited about seeing people’s lives transformed by Jesus and sees the church on mission to our community. We are looking for a senior pastor who has a mentor or spiritual accountability and has experienced their own journey to the heart of Jesus, has been changed, and has, in turn, walked alongside others in their spiritual journey.
• The senior pastor must have a strong commitment to the expositional preaching of the Word of God with relevance and vibrancy, can effectively reach out to community innovatively, including through our recreation center.
• The senior pastor will work collaboratively and effectively at all levels of the church: with our wonderful Board of Trustees, our Elders, our ministry leadership teams and the congregation as a whole. Our church is extremely relational; the expectation is that our new pastor will love people and have a desire to shepherd them well.

Qualifications of our new Senior Pastor:
1. The senior pastor will have a demonstrated record of strong leadership. They will have a performance history of working successfully with superiors, boards, other leaders and subordinates/volunteers.
2. While education is important and we would like to see a bachelor’s degree, and master’s level work is desired, a lifetime of growing intimacy with Jesus, personal, exegetical study and the experience of being discipled and discipling others are essential to us.
3. The candidate must have five to ten years of experience in church, parachurch, or other ministry with ever increasing responsibility and growth. We are open to a non-vocational person with a business background who has extensive experience in caring for people, leadership and preaching and teaching in their local church.4. The new pastor must demonstrate and foster the biblical values of grace, humility, hospitality, transparency, and accountability and appreciate humor.
5. Above all things, the new pastor must know that they are called to lead Messiah and embrace its current vision, while also envisioning the future, firmly rooted in the conviction that with God all things are truly possible. They must also possess a worldview, theological doctrine, and core values (we call them our Stakes in the Ground) that matches those held by Messiah.

MINISTER OF DISCIPLE-MAKING IN LAKESIDE PARK, KY

For more information:  www.Immanuelumc.org 

Send Resume, cover letter, and questions to:  2021immanuel.disciplemaking@gmail.com

Summary:  Serve in assisting role alongside the Senior Pastor and other members of the pastoral and ministry staff in general oversight.  Provide primary oversight for Adult Discipleship, Evangelism, New Member Assimilation, Hospitality, Leadership Development (and currently Men’s ministry).

The goal for a person in ministry position is to develop and lead ministries which make new Christian disciples and help them (and existing disciples in our church) grow spiritually toward Christ-like maturity, in accordance with God’s will as revealed in Scripture, and the overall mission and vision of Immanuel.  The right mix of spiritual and emotional maturity, evangelical passion, interpersonal skill, and commitments to excellence, teamwork, and a positive servant attitude are essential for in this ministry.

Please note, on the diverse theological spectrum of United Methodist churches, Immanuel is on the conservative / traditional, evangelical, and orthodox end.  Suitable candidates must share and support those convictions and reflect the beliefs and practices found in the Wesleyan tradition.  This position reports directly to the Senior Pastor and is a key member of the ministerial staff.

Special consideration will be given to candidates with a Seminary or Theological / Bible degree with coursework in areas such as Christian Education, Evangelism, Discipleship, and Spiritual growth.

Ministry Area Responsibilities:

  1. As Assistant Minister this person will be expected to help the pastoral staff by assisting in worship leadership duties, teaching rotations, pastoral care, and substitute preaching/pulpit supply. This person will also serve alongside the senior Pastor in areas of strategic planning to fulfill the mission of the church.
  2. Adult Discipleship: Coordinate a holistic discipleship and disciple-making process; oversee dynamic small group / class ministries which engage people in both relationships and Biblical / theological content for spiritual growth. Lead Discipleship team in carrying out vision.
    1. Family Ministries Connection – Serve on “Family Ministries Team.” We’ve recently attempted to unify our discipleship efforts at Immanuel to create a “cradle to college and beyond” approach. Our strategy to accomplish this has been to use the ‘Orange’ model (with all age groups) which seeks a partnership between church and home for the benefit of families. For more information on Orange please go to:
  1. Disciple-Making – Our current focus has been mostly on moving church attenders / disciples toward greater spiritual maturity (Christ-like holiness). We would like to expand our focus to include raising up “Disciples who make-Disciples” through relational evangelism.  This means they are trained, equipped, and supported to build relationship with non-believers (Non-Christians) so they may be used by the Holy Spirit to help move people into becoming committed to Christ (as Savior and Lord), and to faithful participation in Christ’s church joining in our mission of making disciples by sharing faith and serving others.
  2. New Member Assimilation: Facilitate the movement of people from being worship guests to becoming active in community engagement and membership. Maintain and enhance the systematic plan for assimilating guests and regular attenders into the discipleship pipeline and helping connect unbelievers to opportunities to make faith commitments to Jesus.
  3. Hospitality: Coordinate a hospitality plan that moves people “from the parking lot to the point.” If we truly want them to get “the point” (the gospel, the message of the day) then we need to be intentional with a carefully crafted plan to move them from first impressions as people pull into the parking lot until they leave for the day after a positive or helpful experience.  Engage in volunteer recruitment, retention, and training to deploy an effective hospitality team each time people gather at church.
  4. Men’s Ministry: Work with the Men’s team to coordinate intentional discipleship processes geared towards men. Maintain the value of men’s ministry within the larger fabric of adult discipleship at Immanuel.   Focus on the five main characteristics of men’s ministry: Small groups/accountability, recreational ministry, intentional service, steps toward spiritual growth not programs to attend, always asking “WHY”? (based on what we want men to do, feel, experience).
  5. Other Duties: During recent years, additional technical duties (live-stream and website work) have become associated with this position (based on skill set of former staff member). Each staff member brings unique gifts which lead to new opportunities to meet the existing and future needs of our church.   As much as possible, additional duties will be tailored to the gifts of the new staff member in light of current needs.

Other notes:

  • Please submit a professional resume and also a cover letter indicating why you are applying and how you may be good fit for this position, as well as any initial questions you may have.
  • References, both personal and professional, will be required at the appropriate time. Please be prepared to provide contact information for your references upon request.
  • This position is a full-time salaried position. For salary information please contact the Senior Pastor.
  • Health insurance benefits (single) are included, and family insurance benefits can be offered in lieu of portion of salary.
  • The church offers a 3% pension match (for lay staff members or non-UMC clergy)
  • If this position is filled by an ordained UM clergy person all applicable tax benefits will be supported.
  • Please apply to disciplemaking@gmail.com attention, Dr. Kelly McClendon, Senior Pastor
