Senior/Solo Pastor Positions
The Lead pastor of Open Doors Christian Fellowship will lead the congregation by protecting it from false doctrine, teaching and preaching the Scriptures, and by directing its activities (1 Tim 5:17), including the supervision of all staff.
Our church is a jewel. We have a very healthy congregation. We are poised for growth. We have no debt. Our surrounding community is ripe for the harvest. We have a brand new church building. We have wonderful worship and preaching on Sunday mornings. Our people are very committed and friendly. We are looking for a pastor who wants to work hard for the Kingdom of God. Our congregation is older and in need of young recruits!
We are a small conservative Baptist Church in much need of revitalization. Our congregation is comprised of mostly older saints with a handful of families who are warm and inviting. We have room to grow in our facility and believe we need to grasp a greater vision for our community while developing workers and learners in order to move forward.
We are looking for a man who will be an overseer, encourager, and most importantly, a visionary. We would like him to be enthusiastic about the ministries that take place in our church as well as being comfortable in speaking for our church as needed. He will motivate the people of this church to do the work of the gospel in our community, and he will be a facilitator who can help those in the church utilize their gifts for God’s glory.
The Lead Pastor is historically a full time pastoral role in a Church with four other staff members. However, due to the potential pay scale, we are open to considering this a part time/bi-vocational position. The pastor is responsible for leading the other Elders and is a defacto member of all other boards and committees. He will be involved in the community surrounding the Church, as well as in the counselling of those within the Church. He will be the primary person responsible for the preaching and teaching ministry of the Church, and give oversight to the other ministries as needed. Beyond this, we hope that he will be a driving force of forward movement in a church that has seen great decline in the past ten years.

It is a functional building with events, meals, and ministries held in the basement level sanctuary which has a kitchen.
