Lykens Valley Charge - Peace & St. Peters Churches

Berrysburg, PA 17005

Denomination: Other

Category: Senior Pastor, Lead Pastor

Posted on: May 09, 2022

Time Type: Full Time

Job Description:

Known together as the Lykens Valley Charge, Peace and St. Peter's churches are less than 5 miles apart and have a 50+ year history of sharing a pastor and working cooperatively to support each other.

Both churches are excited to begin a new journey with a senior pastor who will value our traditions, yet bring energy and new ideas to our congregations as we plan to grow our youth and young adult ministries by adding more contemporary components to our worship. If you value conservative theologies, singing praises to our Lord, and have a desire to partner with us to grow our ministry, we pray that the Spirit will move you to learn more about us. We can't wait to meet you!

We expect the pastor will work between 35-40 hours per week. The actual hours could vary based on visitations, scheduled meetings, church activities, and time of year. The salary posted is negotiable and will include benefits.

About Lykens Valley Charge - Peace & St. Peters Churches:

Peace Church is in a small, family-oriented town. St. Peter's church is in a rural settling. Nearby there are farms and woodlands. Everyone knows their neighbors, and neighbors help each other when needed. We live among Amish in our community too, and occasionally Amish participate in our activities.

While we are in a rural area, shopping centers, hospitals, universities, museums, sports venues, and amusement parks are within a 45-minute drive, and Wal-Mart is less than 10 minutes away. There are manufacturing jobs available within a ten-minute drive, and there are all types of jobs within a 45-minute drive to Harrisburg. The schools are smaller, so students receive more attention.

For a complete profile of both churches, please contact Sherri Keiter-Reed, Search Committee Chairperson, at 

Job Qualifications:

Must be ordained in any denomination or be willing to become ordained within two years.
