Alliance Northwest District C&MA
Lead Pastor | Omak, WA Full-Time A smaller, multi-generational church in North Central Washington seeks a pastor who is committed to Bible teaching in the expository tradition and has a heart for helping people. He must be gifted in discipling and mentoring church leaders for ministry, knowledgeable in spiritual formation and small group development, and able to lead the congregation in reaching people for Christ and greater community impact. We desire a pastor who is a skilled Bible teacher, who is wise and discerning, and who cares for his people while providing appropriate leadership. He should relate to people with a servant’s heart, be experienced in equipping people for ministry and leadership, and be a good listener. In addition, the pastor should hold the vision of what the church wants to be before the congregation. He must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, temperate, prudent, respectable, hospitable, loving what is good, sensible, just, devout, able to teach, self-controlled, not addicted to wine or pugnacious, but gentle, peaceable, free from the love of money, and not fond of sordid gain. He must be one who manages his household well, keeping his children under control with all dignity, not accused of dissipation or rebellion. He must not be a new convert. He must have a good reputation with those outside the church. He must hold fast the faithful word which is in accordance with the teaching, so that he will be able both to exhort in sound doctrine and to refute those who contradict.
