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

East Hanover Church of God

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!

We are located at 10504 Mountain Road, Grantville, PA 17028 and we look forward to meeting you.       

If interested please email resume to Pastor George Jensen at or send a hard copy to:

While we have a rich history our vision is focused on our future.  Located near the Maryland/Pennsylvania state line with three counties within close proximity, our location offers tremendous opportunities for growth.  This includes the revitalization of near-by Fort Ritchie, which is currently underway.

Our church amenities include the following.

  • Baptismal
  • Family Life Center (rated for 520) with a stage

We are a traditional, evangelical, conservative congregation praying for a Pastor with a shepherd’s temperament, a servant-leader with a mentoring attitude.  A Pastor that is able to cast a Holy Spirit led vision for our church, and then motivate the body to follow that vision.  A Pastor that is able to discern and train individuals spiritually to help them reach their God-given potential.  A Pastor who sees visitation as vital to our ministry, as several of our congregation are home bound or otherwise unable to physically attend services.         

Our church family is open and welcoming.  The vision for our church includes a need to develop our children’s, youth, and young adult ministries.  Still, our goal is to provide community outreach and support for all ages.  Another area of need we see opening is for Pastoral care and counseling, providing strong Biblical and practical counseling as well as the ability to make referrals as needed to qualified professional counselors.   

We are seeking God’s Choice.

The candidate seeking to serve would need to be licensed/ordained, and be approved for ministry by the Eastern Regional Conference of the Churches of God General Conference.  If you prayerfully feel God’s leading in our direction, please send your current resume with a cover letter sharing your personal testimony and calling to the ministry.
