We are looking for a Church Planter for Houghton, Michigan. He must be a qualified pastor (I & II Timothy) that demonstrates dependence upon God, possesses an entrepreneurial spirit, has gifts of evangelism and faith, and will be team-oriented. He will need to be energetic and able to connect with the people where they live and work in the community. He will need to be able to adapt to the culture and climate of the area. He will need to be cooperative with other evangelical churches and leaders in the community in order to establish a broader influence for the kingdom of God. His commitment to Houghton and this ministry will need to be long-term.
We are a group of churches and pastors in partnership with one another, throughout the Upper Peninsula of Michigan (www.uptravel.com), committed to start effective, reproducing Converge Worldwide churches in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, through a context of supportive relationships with the U.P. Lead Team. We are affiliated with Converge Great Lakes, a regional district of Converge Worldwide.
