Senior/Lead Pastors

Senior Pastor

Posted: 11/01/2021
Salary/Range: 45,000 plus
Bad Axe, Michigan

The ideal candidate would be a man of family values, embracing our church’s vision. The Candidate should lead the Elders on our Leadership Council. The Candidate must be a graduate in good standing of an accredited college or university, preferably someone with or working toward a Master’s Degree or equivalent. The Candidate must be ordained or willing to be ordained as a Pastor by our congregation.

He should meet the biblical qualifications of an Elder; 1 Timothy 3:1-7, Titus 1:5-9, 1 Peter 5:1-4. He should be gifted in the areas of spiritual leadership, pastoral care, and truthfully interpreting Scripture through meaningful application in preaching and teaching. He should lead in worship service planning, officiate marriages and funerals, and administer the Lord’s Table and Believer’s Baptism. He should embrace our Statement of Faith as a valid expression of Christian belief. He must be a man ‘called of God,’ a man of prayer, and he must have the fruitful spiritual disciplines in his family and private life as mentioned in 2 Corinthians 4:1-18 and 1 Peter 5:1-11.

We are asking our next Senior Pastor to coach us in reaching those without Christ in our community. We are a turn-around-church. Forthcoming considerations would be to engage leadership development, build a ministry to men, strengthen pathways of communication inside our church, and provide confidential biblical counseling for singles, couples, and families.

Salary is commensurate with experience. This position would be allowed to be bi-vocational until the church’s financial growth is sufficient to support a candidate’s financial goal.
