Senior Pastor

Peace & St. Peter's Church

Berrysburg, PA 17005

Denomination: Other

Category: Senior Pastor, Lead Pastor

Posted on: October 18, 2022

Time Type: Full Time

Job Description:

Peace and St. Peter's churches are less than 5 miles apart and have a 50+ year history of working cooperatively to support our ministries. We are essentially one church with two buildings.

We are excited to begin a new journey with a male or female pastor who will bring energy and new ideas to our congregations as we plan to grow our youth and young adult ministries and help us move from a traditional worship service to one that is contemporary. At the same time this position is posted, we are also locally posting a part-time youth and young adult leader or pastor to assist with achieving our vision for the church.

Two of the same services are delivered most Sundays; however, occasionally only one service is offered. We expect the pastor will work between 35-40 hours per week. The salary posted is negotiable. The benefits include a pension through the denomination, health benefits and a housing allowance in addition to salary.

We are affiliated with the United Church of Christ. While this denomination can be very liberal, our church values more conservative theologies. The denomination values diversity and autonomy at the local church, which allows each church to embrace its own traditions and theology.

We pray that the Spirit will move you to learn more about us. We can't wait to meet you!

About Peace & St. Peter's Church:

Our church family is an extension to our actual families. We care for each other, pray for each other in times of need, and love to sing praises to our Lord.

Peace Church is in a small, family-oriented town. St. Peter's church is in a rural settling. Nearby there are farms and woodlands. While we are in a rural area, there is a Wal-Mart, restaurants and other amenities within a 10 minute drive. We are within a 45-minute drive to Harrisburg.  

Job Qualifications:

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