Looking for an Assistant Pastor with the goal of transitioning to lead pastor after a period of mentoring and coaching by our current pastor and the elders.
He shall devote himself to prayer preaching and teaching giving pastoral care and with the elders take the lead in overseeing all the ministries of the church. He will be a member of the church. He shall work with the elders in formulating a ministry strategy to fulfill the Mission of the Church and ensure all ministries are aligned with our Core Values.
Someone with a good track record of ministry, either pastoral experience or lay. He must be willing to be mentored and serve under our current pastor and the elders as an assistant or associate for a time – up to a year, transitioning to lead pastor role if all goes well.
A gentle shepherd who will come alongside to work with us in carrying out our mission who will get involved in the community as he learns the culture of New Hope and Dexter. NOT someone who comes in with his own agenda or vision before getting to know us.
