Job Description

With our identity and purpose in view (see below), Riverside seeks an anointed man of God to further equip and lead the body through preaching of the Word, evangelism and discipling. This spiritual service will be the pastor’s primary focus and responsibility. He must be a born-again believer, showing evidence of faith, goodness, knowledge, discipline, renewal of mind and ongoing sanctification, while fully crediting and glorifying God (2 Peter 1:5-8, Ephesians 2:8-9). We do not require a perfectly polished speaker, but a man guided by the Holy Spirit to preach the Word with clarity and conviction. His ability to prepare and deliver a sound expository sermon should be accompanied by a humility in obeying the Holy Spirit’s direction for the needs of the moment.

The Pastor will also live out the Great Commission by engaging in the community, and by modeling the character of Christ in all his relationships. Fostering strong working relationships with the church’s elders and deacons, he is able to both provide counsel and receive direction as the situation requires.

This position may be established as full-time or part-time at church leadership discretion. Consideration will be given to the makeup and availability of candidates the Lord provides. Full-time salary is $45,000 to $55,000 commensurate with experience, with benefits negotiable.
