    Senior Minister Opening

    *Instead of a resume please email twcole13@yahoo.com before September 28 to request the Ministry Prospects Questionnaire, indicating it is for the Liverpool Church.

    Liverpool Christian Church is located just outside of Syracuse in beautiful Central New York. The area is surrounded by many lakes, mountains, and is home to a number of sports teams, schools, and universities. The area is a snow lover’s paradise with lots of snow in the winter as well as beautiful and temperate summers. Imagine apple picking in the fall, skiing in the winter, strawberry picking in the spring, and golfing in the summer. This is truly a four-season region offering low real estate costs and everything a big city has to offer without the big city hassle. The area is filled with history and a thriving cultural scene.

    LCC is a non-denominational Christian Church seeking to reach lost people in our community for Jesus while also focusing on building disciples by providing life groups, equipping classes and events for our church members. Our desire is to become “people pointing people to Jesus” through “praying, investing and inviting” as our outreach strategy. We’re a church that is open to anyone, as they are, willing to come and figure out who Jesus is.

    Pre-pandemic we were a 2-service church with an average attendance of 190 people. We currently have one service in-person and one online with an average in-person attendance of 90 people. We have a booming children’s ministry, a rock-solid youth ministry, and are proud to have nearly 50% of our people serving in some capacity in the church. LCC is involved in many local community efforts and with our church partner in the Dominican Republic.

    Our former minister recently completed an 11-year ministry with LCC, leaving on good terms to serve and lead at his home church in another state. We are searching for our next Lead Pastor who will set and cast a vision for our future with the support of our Elders and staff. The elders at LCC are unified and strive to encourage the Lead Pastor in any way possible.

    The Lead Pastor will lead the staff and volunteer ministry team leaders, cast vision and disciple the congregation through relational ministry as well as solid biblical teaching. We would love for our next Lead Pastor to demonstrate a heart for leading others into outreach, both globally and locally.

    Our Lead Pastor (and family) will be well-loved and ideally become an integral part of our Liverpool church family. If you would like, please visit our website at liverpoolfamily.com or check us out on any of the socials @liverpoolfamily. If the vibe of LCC seems like a fit for you instead of a resume please email twcole13@yahoo.com before September 28 to request their “Ministry Prospects Questionnaire.” Please indicate it is for the Liverpool Church.

    Position Description

    The Maplewood Christian Church is searching for a Lead Pastor

    The Maplewood Christian Church (MCC) is a non-denominational congregation planted in 1986 within the brotherhood of independent Christian Churches and Churches of Christ, although conservative in profile we are not cessationist in belief. Current congregants and leadership have diverse church backgrounds including Catholic, Vineyard, Disciples of Christ, Baptist, and Pentecostal. We are led by a board of Elders, including the Pastor. Deacons provide operational support and additional ministry leadership.

    We desire to evangelize our community, bring people to saving relationships with Christ, make disciples, and support and participate in missions, in obedience to God’s Word, with and through his love and grace. We practice believer’s baptism by immersion and weekly communion. We currently have one weekly Worship Service, host Sunday School for all ages, and Wednesday evening Prayer Group, and Adult Bible Study. Wednesday Youth Group has had varied success in the past but has not yet restarted after the shut-down. Several Small Groups meet regularly.  We have` hosted a well-attended VBS annually, last year was cancelled, this year it was virtual, we intend to get back to “normal”. Services have been posted to social media since last year and we are currently transitioning to live-streaming. MCC endeavors to engage in community events and would like to expand that presence.

    We have attendees from all age groups with the large portion being senior. Attendance was approaching 100 weekly, prior to the pandemic shutdown, and is gradually rebounding. Located just outside of the northern city limits of Ravenna, Ohio, members reside throughout the communities of central and northeast Portage County, and beyond, this area includes several school districts.

    Our building and facilities are mortgage free. Facilities constructed and added to since 1994 include nearly 18,000 sq. ft., comprised of a sanctuary with seating for 150+, 2 multipurpose rooms, and 6 classrooms, a nursery, and a cafe. On nearly 32 acres we have a ball diamond, multiple soccer fields, a picnic pavilion, a creek-side camp site, with the balance of acreage leased for agricultural purposes. A Capital Campaign is underway to support facility improvements and technology upgrades.

    The current opening is the result of the Pastor moving on as he understands God’s will for him and his family in this season. There are no special issues in our church body compelling this change, it is part of the natural life cycle of any congregation. The departing pastor is the second in 25 years, and the fourth in the 35+ year existence of this congregation. There was a period of time that the congregation supported a fulltime Associate Pastor, he was called to a Lead Pastor position in another part of the state approximately ten years ago, and the position here was not refilled.

     

    The selected candidate will be expected to:

    • Preach weekly and/or arrange for special speakers.
    • Regularly be engaged with ministry to all ages with emphasis on teens.
    • Provide spiritual guidance in all aspects of church ministry.
    • Conduct Bible studies.
    • Lead evangelism.
    • Encourage Missions and lead by example.
    • Counsel
    • Make visits in home and hospital.
    • Administer day to day business affairs with assistance of a church secretary.
