Position Description

Inviting applications for two pastoral positions for a combined FTE of 1.5 - 2.0.

First Mennonite Church is excited to build a new pastoral team that works along with our church community to help us grow as a community of grace, joy, and peace. We are a multi-generational, urban church of approximately 180, with Anabaptist theology and principles guiding us. God has called us to be an inclusive, affirming, Christian community. Congregants are actively involved in church ministries and programs. The new pastoral team will share pastoral responsibilities in a manner that fits with their skills and gifts.

EXPECTATIONS

We expect our pastors to challenge the membership through preaching and teaching. This should reflect a level of competence commensurate with the pastors' level of education. We expect the pastors to provide effective spiritual leadership and keep the congregation’s focus on its core mission, specifically: a. growing in our faith, proclaiming God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit as the centre of our faith and worship and informing our discipleship. b. caring about each other and those beyond our community of faith. We expect our pastors to have gifts to support people of all ages through the various seasons of their lives. Fostering inter-church / inter-conference relationships to enhance the ministry of FMC requires the pastors' involvement.
