Gaines United Brethren Church in Caledonia, Mich. (20 minutes southeast of Grand Rapids) is a congregation with a rich history. Our church is looking forward to writing our next chapter of ministry. We are looking for a senior pastor who will provide scriptural teaching and enable us to be a community of Christ followers who will influence and encourage people around us, one life at a time.
Our next senior pastor will bring a giftedness in biblical preaching/teaching and a pastor’s heart. A strong commitment to motivating people and promoting the ministries of the church in the community is essential. Skill and experience with both administration and helping people develop their spiritual life will be a benefit. It is also expected that this individual will maintain professional ministerial credentials with the Church of the United Brethren in Christ, USA.
Gaines Church is a congregation of approximately 200 people. We are a committed group which is both financially stable and generationally balanced. We are located in a rapidly growing region (15% in the past decade) and have both the facilities and staff (part-time worship, kids, youth, and administration) which will enable growth. We also have plans to update and add to our existing facility while continuing to reach out to families in the community.
