P/T Senior Pastor – East Hanover Church of God – Grantville, PA – ERC

The East Hanover Church of God is searching for a part-time pastor. Ideally, the person who becomes our pastor must be certain that he or she is led by God to our small congregation of approximately 20 people per Sunday.

We are looking for a person with the ability and desire to teach and preach God’s Holy Word accurately, not avoiding any undesirable topic. We prefer expository or textual sermons but are open to different techniques of preaching as long as they are Biblically-centered. We desire a person who has a strong and unwavering conviction that the Bible is the inspired Word of God without error and who preaches sermons to support the major doctrines and theological teachings contained in it.  We are looking for an individual who is personable and friendly. Our hope is that our pastor would come to truly care for and love the people in the congregation and be willing to visit the homebound, hospitalized and those that call upon him or her for prayer and support.

We are a relaxed congregation that enjoys the old hymns and a traditional worship service, but we are open to new ideas and experiences. We typically do not have activities apart from the Sunday service, a prayer gathering once a month, and occasional luncheons. However, we are seeking a pastor who is able and willing to provide strong Biblical and practical guidance along with support and encouragement to spiritually qualified individuals who feel called to start new activities such as a youth Bible study or outreach projects to the surrounding community. We are always willing to listen and discuss new ideas and desire a pastor who is open to sharing his or her thoughts and ideas with us.     

We do not want this to just be another job for our pastor. We want our pastor and their family to become part of our family of God that supports one another, including the pastor!
