About United Church of Penacook:

Organized in 1856, the Church is housed in a traditional New England style building and has primary affiliation with American Baptist Churches USA (ABC VT/NH). We are also affliated with United Church of Christ (NH Conference UCC), having merged an ABC church with a then Congregational Church in 1953. We minister to a 15 mile radius, offer a community food pantry, and have a diverse, multi-generational congregation. We offer a mixed worship style of contemporary and traditional music, at a single 10 AM year round service time.

Beyond our pastor, we employ a pianist for Sundays, and a part time person who provides secretarial, book keeping and cleaning services (both of whom work with and report to the pastor).

We host community groups such as the Scouts, Narcotics Anonymous and TOPS (Take Pounds Off Sensibly) groups, as well the Open Door Community Kitchen (the area's soup kitchen). We also host occasional Concord City meetings/events. 

Job Qualifications:

*Must meet the biblical qualifications of I Tim 3:1-7; 4:13-16, and Titus 1:6-9; 2:7-8.
*Ordination strongly preferred (or the commitment to pursue it once hired).
*Master's of Divinity or equivalent degree.
*Ministry experience (e.g. Youth, Children's or Worship Pastor; Christian Camp Director, etc.)
Gifts and Skills:
*Gift of preaching and teaching using primarily an expository approach.
*Gift of leadership with ability to persuade and coach others to realize and implement the Church's vision.
*Gift of pastoral care/shepherding to meet the needs of the congregation.
*Ability to equip the body through discipling, encouragement and exhortation.
*Gift of music (leading worship) would be a plus.
