    Dave McCormick Phone: (765) 376-4001 Email: newhopeccsearch@gmail.com

    Position Description

    The New Hope Christian Church is an Independent, Non-denominational, Instrumental, Restoration Movement congregation with an average worship attendance of 300. We are a Bible-based congregation whose mission is to lead people to be growing disciples of Jesus Christ. Our congregation was established in 1977 and has a strong presence in the local community and internationally through our Faith Promise Missions Ministry.

    The Senior Minister and the Elders are responsible for the oversight and spiritual welfare of the Church, staff, and all related ministries. When fully staffed, the church staff consists of four full-time ministerial positions, one full-time financial administrator, one part-time administrative assistant, and one part-time counselor.

    New Hope’s worship style is contemporary having vocalists and a praise band who lead. We offer two Sunday morning services separated by our Sunday School Hour. Ministry to children and youth takes place during the second worship hour and on Sunday evenings. There are several adult small groups that meet in members’ homes throughout the week. Additionally, New Hope operates a preschool program and after-school care.

    Education:
    Graduate of a Restoration Movement Christian Bible College or University with
    a Master’s Degree preferred.

    Experience:
    A minister for 5 or more years, experienced in supervising, or working with, multiple staff, and having served a congregation of preferably 300 or more.

    Qualifications:
    The Senior Minister needs to possess the following Holy Spirit given gifts and
    related talents and abilities (which follow them in parenthesis).
    • Serving, Rom. 12:7
    • Teaching, Rom. 12:7 (Preaching, Evangelism, Missions minded)
    • Encouraging, Rom. 12:8 (Shepherding, Promote Unity)
    • Leadership, Rom. 12:8 (Administration, Self-Starter/self-motivated, Visionary Development of future church leaders)
    • Mercy, Rom. 12:8
    • Hospitality

    The Senior Minister shall:
    • Demonstrate commitment and dedication to the congregation through thorough preparation and delivery of spiritually informative, challenging, and encouraging material during Sunday morning services.
    • Maintain awareness of congregation attendance and personal issues – developing an approach for encouraging member participation.
    • Support all church activities and functions (through attendance and participation as is opportune – consistent with the participation we desire from congregation members and church leadership).
    • Participate in other activities that promote broader body unity and spiritual growth.
    • Keep and maintain scheduled office hours

    In addition to obligatory responsibilities, the Minister is encouraged to participate in activities (family or hobby), other church activities, and community activities. Involvement in “non-work” activities reflects an important balance; promotes credibility in establishing a foundation for relationships and opportunities within the community. New Hope Christian Church encourages involvement within the community recognizing the importance of personal evangelism and ministry outside the church building.

    As Christians, management of our personal time reflects our personal priorities and commitment. As the spiritual leaders of the congregation, the elders and the Senior Minister must be committed to “protect” or “guard our testimony” as the Apostle Paul states. Our behaviors must support our roles as spiritual leaders and we must mutually hold one another accountable.

    Interested candidates should send a resume detailing education and qualifications along with references to: NewHopeCCSearch@gmail.com

    David Foreman Phone: (620) 544-5363 Email: otforeman@yahoo.com

    Position Description

    We are a church in a town in Southwest Kansas with a population of approximately 20,000, we celebrated our 100th anniversary in February 2015.

     

    Our average attendance is 35-45, but we know we have the potential to grow our congregation to a much higher participation than that.  We are a “programmed” Friends (Quaker) meeting, so we are looking for a pastor with strong preaching skills.  A portion of each worship service is set aside for open worship, in the Quaker tradition – it is an important part of our service.

     

    We seek a pastor who has a strong work ethic, is an effective preacher, and who will dedicate herself or himself to the vision and mission of making disciples of Christ.  A seminary degree is preferred.  If not, a strong academic background in theology is desired.

     

    Salary package:  $45,000, plus parsonage (We are purchasing a new parsonage).

     

    Please email or mail cover letter and resume (with references) to David Foreman, Presiding Clerk at: Box 1595 Liberal, KS 67905, otforeman@yahoo.com ; or Dale Kile, Spiritual Life Chairman at: rebeccakile65@yahoo.com ; or Carmen Sumner, at sumner.carmen@gmail.com .  If available, send a video file or audio file of up to two recent sermons, or provide information where sermons can be accessed on a web site.

     

    As Christ-centered Friends, we believe that apostolic (New Testament) doctrines are essentials of Christianity.  Fundamental truths considered as vital and life-giving are: the Fatherhood of God; the deity and humanity of Jesus the Son; the ministry of the Holy Spirit; Christ’s atonement which reconciles believers to God; the resurrection of Jesus Christ which assures true believers of life after death; the high priesthood of Christ who gives access to the Father by forgiving sins; and the individual priesthood of believers who may approach God directly without human intervention.  (See Faith and Practice, Mid-America Yearly Meeting (Rev. 2003).

    Bob Hoel Phone: (765) 645-5058 Fax: (000) 000-0000 Email: plumcreeksearch@gmail.com

    Position Description

    Position:

    This position will be referred to as Senior Minister. The Senior Minister will, with the Elders, lead the overall program of the Church, as well as oversee the daily operations of the Church staff.

     

    The Senior Minister communicates and reports directly to the Elders of the Congregation.

     

     

    Purpose:

    The Senior Minister will provide primary leadership to the Congregation by inspiring the Church’s activities in a way that will glorify God: by promoting Christian growth within the Body, and outreach to the community. This leadership will be focused on meeting the goals and objectives of the Congregation as established by the Elders, being especially sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit.

     

    Duties and Responsibilities:

     

    1. Feeding the Flock: This is the Senior Minister’s primary responsibility. It assumes that he himself will remain spiritually nourished and that a significant amount of his time will be devoted to prayer, Bible study, learning opportunities, as well as other activities that will promote his spiritual growth.

     

    1. Preaching: Preaching will be the Senior Minister’s primary tool of leadership. Sermons should teach, encourage, motivate, and correct when necessary. He will monitor, be responsible for, and have primary input to all that happens in the pulpit (including scheduling of guest speakers).

     

    1. Worship Services: The Senior Minister will play a primary role in working with the Worship Elder and Music Ministry Leader to develop worship services that will honor God and bless His people.

     

    1. Pastoral Care: The Senior Minister will seek to maintain contact with people who have special needs, whether physical, spiritual, or emotional. He will provide encouragement and comfort in such times of need by visiting in people’s homes, hospitals, nursing homes, funeral chapels, or wherever the need should be. He will also communicate those needs to the Elders, so they and the Congregation can participate in the pastoral care of the Church.

     

    1. Teaching: The Senior Minister will teach where he has opportunity, seeking to instruct in areas where his knowledge and gifts can best be used.  The Senior Minister will work with the Education Elder to develop education programs such as Christian education, Bible studies, and small groups to encourage continuing Christian formation in the Congregation.
    2. Counseling: The Senior Minister is encouraged to apply the Word of God in personal contexts as he has opportunities to counsel people. Where situations are particularly complicated or potentially time-consuming, he is encouraged to refer to appropriate professionals.

     

     

    1. Evangelism: Evangelism is an important work of the Senior Minister since he serves in the role of evangelist (2 Tim. 4:5)

     

    1. The Senior Minister will work closely with the Outreach areas of ministry, helping develop opportunities for connecting people to the Church.

     

    1. The Senior Minister will model personal evangelism in his own life by sharing the gospel with individuals with which he has opportunity to witness.

     

    1. The Senior Minister will promote personal evangelism within the Congregation through his preaching, and by leading evangelism training classes as needed.

     

     

    1. Administration: Since the Senior Minister is involved in the daily overseeing of matters of the Church, he is responsible for much of the day to day administration of the Church and its staff.
    1. The Senior Minister is responsible with the Elders for creating the vision of Plum Creek Christian Church and casting it before the Congregation.

     

    1. The Senior Minister provides regular input to the Elders regarding future planning needs and opportunities which he believes are necessary to enhance the growth of Plum Creek Christian Church.

     

    1. The Senior Minister meets each week with the staff to discuss matters of planning, and problem-solving.

     

    1. The Senior Minister generally maintains weekday office hours between 9-5 PM, except for meetings, calls, or other pastoral duties that may call him away from the office.

     

    1. The Senior Minister meets regularly with the Elders and Ministry Leaders to determine ministry assignments and monitor progress of ministry programs.

     

     

    1. Church-At-Large: Since the local body of Christ is part of the Church “universal,” the Senior Minister is encouraged to participate in ministries and programs that recognize the larger Body of Christ.

     

    1. Minister’s Associations: The Senior Minister will seek to be identified with appropriate minister’s groups that will provide encouragement and resources for ministry and that will demonstrate the essence of Christian unity.

     

    1. Other Church related boards/ministries: The Senior Minister may serve in these activities with approval from the Elders, understanding that they should not take precedence over responsibilities at Plum Creek Christian Church.

“The Humanities Department opened its doors right around the time where I was caught in a bit of a personal dilemma. I was studying music, but really wanted to further my studies in film through an internship in Los Angeles. The department was made for someone like me, who was trying to navigate a lot of artistic interests and find the career path buried in the middle of all of them. That internship changed my life and the KCU Humanities Department made it not only possible, but easy to follow my heart.”
