Hillsdale, Mich., is a beautiful place to live and minister. In fact, our current Lead Pastor loved it so much, he’s been our faithful leader at Hillsdale United Brethren Church for nearly 20 years. As he enters retirement during the first quarter of 2018, we’re looking for our next Lead Pastor to take us into our next season of ministry; staying true to our tradition of community outreach and evangelism, and moving us forward in new and exciting ways as a disciple-making church.
We’re looking for a real leader. Someone who’s preaching leads to individual transformation in the lives of our congregation. Someone who’s had experience building a leadership team (we have 8 full and/or part-time staff right now). A person who wants to make a real difference in changing a community and has the energy and vision to do so.
We are a church of about 450 people. People are being introduced to Christ on a weekly basis. We’ve doubled in attendance in the past years, but we think we’re just getting started. We are very outreach and community oriented through things like Celebrate Recovery, a counseling center, Upwards Basketball, and an innovative marriage ministry. Our ministries to children and youth are making a difference.
If this sounds like something God has gifted you in, please send a copy of your resume, a cover letter, and a current photo to firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Hillsdale UB church (Hillsdale, Mich.) is seeking a Transitional Pastor to lead them into the future, as the Senior Pastor plans to retire at the end of 2017. In order to provide a smooth transition, we seek to employ a staff pastor this summer who will gradually assume the responsibilities of Senior Pastor by the end of the year.

Besides the Senior Pastor, our staff includes four fulltime and four part-time employees. Applicants should possess a graduate ministry degree or be in the process of earning one. Past experience must include serving in some form of leadership role at a church of at least 800 in attendance.
