Pastor
East View United Church of Christ, Shaker Heights, OH

Our congregation possesses a mutual respect for the leadership and their abilities to function efficiently and effectively as the Pastor. The Pastor is ex-officio on all committees and is to be consulted before any programs are placed on the calendar and prior to any people being invited to the church or recommended for office. This expectation is stated and written into the churches by-laws policy and we are continuing to work on efforts that ensure everyone is adhering to this expectation. Recognizing that communication is the key to a successful ministry, the church is accustomed to an open door policy. There is a hope and expectation that the lay leaders and congregation will be able to discuss current and potential new ministries with the Senior Pastor. Realizing that the new pastor will be a three quarter time employee, the Associate Pastor and ministerial team will continue to assist throughout the transitional phase. The ministerial team recognizes the value of teamwork and building upon the skill set of each clergy member while focusing on the common collective goal to guide church members by faithfully teaching the word of God. The church is eager to experience the energy of a new Pastor. The church is primed and ready to strengthen current ministries while also venturing into new endeavors. A new Pastor will come with “fresh eyes” and new innovative ideas. The current leadership and congregation are open to the will of God and building up the House of God called East View UCC. NOTE: Please contact us to receive the annual report and/or MissionInsite report.
