Lead pastor - Job posting

North Collins Wesleyan is seeking a lead pastor for a vibrant and enthusiastic church. The congregation of 250+ consists of people from North Collins and several surrounding communities. We offer three services each weekend (one Saturday evening and two Sunday morning) to accommodate our growing congregation. We also use social media to make available prerecorded sermons and live broadcasts of our worship service. We are prayerfully seeking a dynamic pastor who will lead us in fulfilling God's vision in our community as we continue to serve and grow His Kingdom.

North Collins is a rural community 30 miles south of Buffalo, NY with a town population of approximately 3,500. It is an area with country charm, flourishing small businesses and supportive comradery.

We are a community-oriented church that values the impact we can have on both believers and non-believers through our outreach ministry, both local and abroad. We have a true passion to pour into individuals, families, and the community as a whole to shine the love of Jesus Christ! We emphasize ministry opportunities for people of all ages. We also focus on community involvement, discipleship, and leading people into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ.

Our church is in the planning phase of a construction project to build a family life center on our campus. This additional building will allow our church greater ability to conduct ministry activities for our family, children, youth, and outreach ministries. We have had a successful fundraising campaign thus far and are hoping to break ground by the fall this year.

Desired Qualifications:

  • An authentic love for Christ that is shown in compassion and care for the congregation and is the foundation of a vibrant prayer life
  • Relatable, biblical and inspired preaching
  • Strong leadership to guide the mission God is calling us to
  • Community-oriented: willing to be involved outside of the church in order to support, love, and interact with the greater community
  • Desire to disciple our church as well as to grow God's Kingdom by planting or partnering with other churches

We recognize the magnitude of this calling and have already budgeted for an assistant pastor. The new pastor’s first order of business will be to select an assistant to compliment your skills and gifts and to further strengthen our church body. We also have a strong team of qualified individuals who do well to manage various ministries and projects within the church.

After prayerful consideration, if you sense God may be calling you to lead our congregation, please send your resume to the contact below. Your resume should be in pdf format with your name in title of the document.
