Renewed Church Ready to Reach the Lost Seeks Senior Pastor North Country Alliance Church, Plattsburgh, New York is seeking a Senior Pastor who can lead this body in its next season of ministry and growth. With a vision, “To see our community and world develop a transformational relationship with Jesus Christ”, North Country Alliance Church is committed to making disciples. We believe this will require strong Biblical teaching, discipleship and missional outreach, all supported by a culture of prayer. The Senior Pastor’s primary roles will be teaching the Bible with sound doctrine, conviction and practical application; leading and developing a small staff and ministry leaders; working with leaders to live out the vision and mission of the church, developing a strategy for the church body; and working toward church growth through evangelism and discipleship. This position requires a Seminary degree in Bible, Pastoral Ministry or other ministry-related field; five years in ministry with experience in regular pulpit preaching strongly preferred. Candidates already licensed with the Christian & Missionary Alliance (C&MA) are preferred; but all candidates must be able to meet licensing and ordination requirements with the C&MA. If ordination or licensing is not with the C&MA, there will be the expectation that the pastor will make that transition North Country Alliance Church has a regular Sunday morning attendance of 60-80, with a membership of 72. With excellent facilities, good location, passionate part-time staff, renewed elder and other lay leadership, the church is poised for growth in a growing area of New York. After seven difficult years of pastoral transitions, with intentional interim work toward healing, the church is now in stable condition, poised for growth.
