Trinity Presbyterian Church (Purchase, NY) has begun a search for an Executive Director of Ministries (if ordained, Executive Pastor). The primary role of the EDM is to serve, under the leadership of the Senior Pastor Craig Higgins, in the leadership and direction of the church staff, in the recruiting and overseeing of volunteer ministry leaders, and in leading the operations necessary for the accomplishment of the church’s mission.

In addition to the essential competencies, education and experience of any excellent executive leader in the 2nd chair, the ideal candidate will love developing and implementing internal systems which support a healthy congregational structure.

Proposed Sanctuary

Trinity Church is a church plant of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City. It was launched under the leadership of Pastor Tim Keller who challenged some families to form a congregation in Westchester County. In 1994 Pastor Craig Higgins and his wife Ann joined those core families to form the Trinity Presbyterian Church. They did so with the hope of being a flourishing community of individuals and families in the northern NYC suburbs that loves and follows Jesus, as well as transforms the world through the power of the Gospel. That hope has been realized. More recently, the congregation acquired over six acres of land in Purchase, NY where it plans to construct its first permanent sanctuary later this year.

The beautiful community of Purchase is a hamlet just north of New York City in the village of Harrison, in Westchester County, New York. The community, consisting of mostly single-family homes within large tracts of open space, is conveniently located to shopping centers in Rye, NY and Greenwich, CN, as well to White Plains, NY with its regional airport. Purchase also benefits from the presence of two colleges: Manhattanville College and the State University of New York at Purchase.
