Job Description

IDEAL CANDIDATE
The ideal candidate has a deep, growing relationship with God and exhibits it in a personal life of devotion and preaching with a strong biblical focus. The ideal candidate will have a passion for making disciples and encouraging every believer to grow in their faith in a way that invites others to meet Jesus. We seek a pastor who has an evangelical perspective and affirms the statement of faith of the Conservative Congregational Christian Conference while supporting the mission, vision and values of The Sherman Church.

We seek a pastor who believes in the inerrancy and authority of Scripture – that God’s Word is meant to impact every area of a believer’s life. While sharing an understanding of Scripture, the pastor will help all apply God’s Word and principles to everyday life in a way that engages and challenges people to grow in wisdom. We want our future minister to deliver sermons that not only explain the text clearly but also connect to daily life in a way that inspires Christians regardless of where they are on their faith journey.

Our ideal pastor will help implement our vision for the church, motivating and equipping leaders to come alongside to see God at work through a congregational approach to ministry. This means working collaboratively in the structure of a congregational church, being flexible in leading, evaluating and guiding necessary steps to fulfill the vision.

The pastor we seek needs to be comfortable in small-town ministry, having a desire to engage with the community. We pray our new pastor will encourage, strengthen and inspire the congregation to also reach out in faith to bring the gospel to the unchurched.
