North Central District C&MA
LEAD PASTOR FOR 10-YEAR-OLD CHURCH Pointway Church – Baxter, MN Solo pastor needed to lead a growing church in the beautiful lake country of North-Central Minnesota. Five-mile radius from the church includes a population of nearly 25,000 and a local college. Age is not a primary factor, but preference for a couple with a least one healthy prior pastoral experience. We are looking for someone who is committed to be with us and invest in us for the long haul (10+ years) and has experience growing a church. Specific desired qualifications include: • Passionate about God’s word that results in solid Bible preaching and teaching • Able to cast a vision for the future, provide support and redirect when needed • Can work to disciple people of all ages and spiritual maturity to grow • Relational leader who can build and maintain healthy relationships with the church family • Collaborative leadership style • Strong commitment to prayer and being Spirit-led • Strong commitment to the missions/evangelism focus of the C&MA – internal, external, and extended • Outreach and evangelistically minded. We want a pastor who is passionate about the gospel and is excited to share it with the Brainerd Lakes. Additional information: • Embraces interests similar to those present in the church and community— outdoor recreation, fishing, hunting, board games, and school activities. • Spouse should be an active and supportive participant in the church, but is not obligated to take a leadership role; first obligation to family if there are children. • Church volunteers can work in various ministries under the pastor’s leadership; need a leader who encourages use of gifts to get involved. • While our pastor doesn’t need to be a gun owner, a number of folks in our congregation are passionate supporters of the Second Amendment, so this individual should be sensitive to various perspectives on this issue.
