We are led by five elders who have a bottom-up approach to church programming. Currently, our congregation has an average attendance of approximately 115-130, serving a three state region (DE, PA, MD).
Our congregation has numerous ministries that meet the basic needs of those around us. Our resale shop, bread ministry, car care ministry, and food pantry help our community members with limited means. We provide free housing for family members of patients at Christiana Hospital. We employ a missionary and own a campus house for the campus ministry at the University of Delaware.
We are seeking a full-time minister to preach on Sunday mornings, assist members and ministry leaders in developing outreach programs/events, inspire members of the congregation to be evangelistic, provide counseling to individuals seeking advice, and work with members of the congregation to develop the next generation of church leaders.
Requirements include 3-5 years experience and a Bachelors degree in Bible, Missions, Ministry, or other related field. A Masters degree is preferred. The selected candidate will be required to undergo a criminal background check before a job offer is made.
