Lead Pastor

This is an excellent opportunity for a young (yet experienced) shepherd-leader, with a genuine heart for people of all nationalities and ages, to join what God is doing through a young mission-minded church in reaching the community with the gospel and equipping members to become mature, reproducing disciples.

This new Lead Pastor must be ready to build upon the spiritual foundation already established, pursuing a vision for growth and excellence in Christ.  This candidate must be willing to work together with the elder board to lead a body of believers, with faith and courage, to grow the church in a spiritually indifferent region.

At Community of Hope, there is the exciting opportunity to raise up and develop leaders, unleashing them to love Jesus and do the work of His ministry.  With God’s help, the body will be effectively equipped towards planting more churches in the area.

Following a founding pastor in and of itself is a challenge to any incoming Lead Pastor, yet the biggest challenge facing the new pastor will be the ability to lead and develop the church for its next stage of life and effective ministry.  This will involve, among other things, in the first 2 years:

o   Developing and shepherding existing elders and lay leaders to reproduce themselves

o   Create a reproducible path of discipleship for the church to implement

o   Evaluate and develop the present existing ministries of the church, setting clearly defined goals and appointing qualified leaders

o   Creating a weekend worship service experience that motivates the congregation to invite their un-churched friends and acquaintances to come, hear, and respond to the Gospel, as well as equip believers to grow in the grace of knowing, following, and loving Jesus Christ with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength

o   Lead the church to break the 200 attendance barrier, in order to be established enough to plant another church in the area.

Presently, COH church is made up of 100+ people who love and care for one another as well as the surrounding multi-cultural community they live in, which is 98% un-churched.  20% of its congregation have become followers of Jesus in the last five years, and 90% of the regularly attending adults are connected in a small group. Sharing the love, grace, and truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ has been and remains a high priority and value in the life of this church.  Now, for this next chapter of COH’s story, the challenge and priority is to further clarify its vision and mission alongside shepherding and developing disciples and leaders to raise their ministries up to the next level. Having come through a difficult season and being open and willing to investigate and evaluate their strengths and weaknesses, they are healthy, ready, and willing to embrace the mission and future before them.

If you are interested please e-mail us at info@gethope.ca we will get an application out to you right away and we can then review and start the interview process.

Looking for someone who is ready to help build God's kingdom in Canada.
