27 Jan Position Opening: Senior Pastor in Chambersburg, PA
Salem United Brethren in Christ Church in Chambersburg, Pa., is a congregation with a suburban feel within close proximity to the I-81 corridor in south-central Pennsylvania. We are looking for a senior pastor who will encourage and enhance the giftedness of our staff and God’s people in collaborative ministry to serve families and prepare them to live Christian lives for future decades. It is our desire to grow spiritually and stay spiritually alive in Christ.
Our next senior pastor will be a dynamic communicator who possesses a shepherd’s heart. The ability to partner with staff and volunteer leaders is essential. Skill and experience in building a sense of belonging with both congregation and community will be a benefit. Currently, we do not have many families with small children and we recognize this as a challenge. Thus, we anticipate our pastor engaging in community in such a way as to interact with young families. It is also expected that this individual will maintain professional ministerial credentials with the Church of the United Brethren in Christ, USA.
Salem Church is a congregation of more than 175 people (pre COVID). We have a solid youth ministry which enables us to reach younger generations. Our people are strongly committed to missions, are willing and ready workers, and we are in the process of modernizing our worship venue in order to expand online ministries and meet the needs of our rapidly-growing region.
If this sounds like something for which God has been preparing you, please send a copy of your resume, a cover letter, and a current photo to firstname.lastname@example.org.
