Position Description

Parliament Community Church is seeking a full time Associate Pastor to minister to our congregation with a major focus on Youth and Young Adults.

Parliament Community Church is located in southwest Regina. Our diverse community church is made up of individuals of all ages, cultures and backgrounds who strive to grow as disciples and to live out their faith in daily life. Approximately 200 people attend church each Sunday morning. Our staff team consists of a lead pastor (1.0 FTE), Associate Pastor of Discipleship (0.25 FTE), a children’s ministry director (0.5 FTE) and an Administrative Assistant (0.75 FTE). Along with hiring an Associate Pastor for Youth and Young Adults, we are also hiring an Associate Pastor of Community Care (.5 FTE).

We are affiliated with the Mennonite Brethren of Canada. We are evangelical in the sense that we root ourselves in the teaching of the gospels, and we are more specifically described as being Anabaptist – meaning we practice believers’ baptism, value nonresistance, and hold to the separation of church and state.
