Pastor (Full-time)
Little Church in the Vale, Gates Mill, OH

Little Church in the Vale is a small, independent congregation with attendance of about 45 in Sunday morning services.  The congregation includes believers of all ages and levels of spiritual maturity.  We have a sound building, no debts, and significant financial reserves.  

From our beginnings in 1935 we have strongly supported foreign and local mission work, with our constitution specifying that 25% of undesignated offerings are to be allocated to missions.  We also have individuals who designate gifts for specific missionaries, which pushes the total several percent higher. 

Theologically we are evangelical, baptistic, and generally Reformed in perspective.  Although we will use contemporary music in our worship services, we do believe hymns of all ages are valuable and instructive.  Our strong personal relationships are another characteristic of the congregation. 

We believe our future pastor must have, among others, the following strengths:

-       Strong Bible based teaching and preaching

-       Ability to establish a vision and implement new ministries of outreach and service

-       Skills relating to the attraction of additional people from the area, both believers and unbelievers - our base congregation needs to grow, particularly with younger families.

 

You can find more information about the church at our web site:

http://www.littlechurchinthevale.org/site/default.asp?sec_id=180012121

 

The full-time position would be divided as: 

-          Approximately half time to be conducting traditional tasks of:

  • Preaching sermons
  • Leading prayer
  • Teaching a class or leading a small group
  • Weddings and Funerals
  • Visitation and Counseling
  • Serving on Elder Board

-          Approximately half time to be focused on church growth:

  • Develop plan for outreach/implement plan
  • Increase the number of 20-40’s attending church services/activities
  • Utilize methods targeted at “millennials”, potentially social media, web, etc.
  • Train others to evangelize and disciple
  • Raise church profile in the community
  • Spearhead projects to draw in the lost, needy, hurting

 

Specific details would be developed by the Elder Board and the Pastor to address goals within available hours.

 

Applicants should provide:
- Resume

- Doctrinal Statement including

- Philosophy of Ministry

- Theology: Are there any specific creedal statements that reflect your general theological position (such as the 1689/2nd/London/Baptist Confession, Westminster Confession, Abstract of Principles, 2000 Faith and Message, etc.)?  Are there any particular ideas that make your favorite one meaningful to you?  If you could recommend only one book to explain your theology, what title would you choose?
