Seeking an energetic and inspirational part-time senior pastor to help a small but dedicated congregation grow in our personal relationship to God and in our relationship to our largely unchurched neighbors here in the heart of Silicon Valley. Some of your key activities for our current congregation will be to provide professional ministry of preaching and teaching the Gospel, celebrating the sacraments, actions of pastoral care, and administration and outreach in the name of Christ.
The successful candidate will be:
an outstanding preacher with worship leadership skills, including the ability to lead us towards contemporary worship. This includes possessing an extensive knowledge of the Bible.
Able to minister to diverse age groups. Although our congregation is primarily older at the moment. Our fervent hope is that, with your help and guidance, we'll again have an age-diverse congregation.
A creative innovator who is open to new ideas. We are looking for a person with the skillset of a Start-Up CEO and the heart of a pastor. The ideal candidate should have experience taking dedicated people and leading them through change and personal growth toward a central and unifying vision of what Messiah can be.
