American Reformed Church (DeMotte, IN), a healthy congregation of nearly 300 weekly worshipers, has begun a nationwide search for an Associate Pastor willing to assume leadership responsibility for two vital ministries: youth & worship. The Associate Pastor, if so gifted and inclined, will also have the opportunity to preach occasionally.
The ideal candidate for this position will be characterized by devotion to Christ and His Church, as well as be gifted in the areas of discipleship and worship. The Associate Pastor will have the privilege of exercising the gift of discipleship with pre-teens and teens, and have the privilege of sharing his or her passion for worship through leadership of Sunday (and special) services. The ideal candidate will also be seminary trained, ordained or ordainable by the Reformed Church in America (or another Reformed fellowship), an experienced leader of corporate worship, and willing to support the mission and vision of the congregation.
