Senior Pastor and Teaching Elder
Dear Brother or Sister in Christ,
Hope Presbyterian Church in Fredericksburg, VA is prayerfully seeking the next senior pastor who God has prepared to lead our congregation.
Fredericksburg is a growing and family-friendly area located within commuting distance of Washington D.C. and Richmond, VA and only 2-3 hours from both the beach and the mountains. The area is home to many military and government facilities, the University of Mary Washington, two hospital networks, and countless small and medium sized businesses. History buffs, sports enthusiasts and outdoor lovers have plenty of opportunities to enjoy their hobbies. Both downtown Fredericksburg and the Central Park area offer numerous restaurants, coffee shops, and other retail options.
Hope is located in a suburban area adjacent to two local schools and a mix of apartments, townhouses, and single-family homes. The neighborhood has become increasingly diverse over the last few decades and Hope is eager to engage with and be a light to our community by drawing in young people and families to reach the unchurched while still caring for all members of our church family.
If you feel God calling you towards this opportunity, please review our Church Information Form, Vision Framework, and Goals found on the Staff Opportunities page of the EPC (https://epc.org/mso/). A Pastor Information Form (PIF), links to sermon recordings, and anything else you feel will help us know you may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will prayerfully consider all applications upon receipt. All inquiries will be handled with strict confidentiality.
We would like to clarify one item on our Church Information Form. While our Profile of Church members on page 3 shows very few members under the age of 18, please realize that we have many families with children who participate in our children’s and youth ministries but they are not official members until they have attended confirmation class and thus cannot be counted. We have approximately fifty K-5 and upwards of sixty youth aged children.
Whether or not Hope becomes your next home, please know we are praying for you.
