Western PA District C&MA

The Greenville Alliance Church is seeking a senior pastor. From the beginning, the Greenville Alliance Church has been committed to sending the gospel around the world through the Great Commission Fund, supporting it financially and prayerfully. Our specific vision of the church is to love God, love others, reach and teach others to do the same. Specific examples: • Our local outreach through His Work His Way, Good Shephard, Clothes Closet, and the Salvation Army. • Our global outreach through Great Commission Fund, and we also play a significant role in Samaritans purse, including the Christmas shoe boxes Over the past decade or so, our church has expanded more into the community. Ministries such as His Work His Way, Neighbor to Neighbor, and supporting Good Shephard along with the Salvation Army are some examples of this. When asking a random sample of Greenville residents, the majority said that they relate our church with the His Work His Way ministry. Purpose/vision/mission of the church: To build spiritual growth within the church family To support and encourage healthy families To know, understand and apply God’s word To develop healthy intergenerational relationships To live Godly lives with a sense of community The elders are the spiritual leaders of the church. This includes vigilant prayer, visiting the sick and praying over them, and making sure the church is being taught the word of God.

At this time, our church needs someone who raise leaders in the congregation along with developing leadership’s qualities within the staff. What are three important personality characteristics for the next Senior Pastor? 1. Extroverted—not an absolute by any means, but with the dynamic of our congregation, an extroverted personality would be beneficial to connect with everyone. 2. Servant Leader—for specifically, a leader within the staff who is consistently upholding staff policy.

Consistent- it’s important that no matter what issues happen within a day, we are always looking to fulfill the vision of the church. What criteria would you use to measure a good work week for your pastor? 1. Working constructively with the staff and feeling like everyone is on the same page. 2.
