Our next pastor should be willing to learn and embrace the pace and rhythms of living in a smaller town, but not lose sight of the calling of God in this place to move beyond the status quo.

  • Is FULL of the Holy Spirit and grace and ready to live a life of service

  • Will be a graduate of a Bible college and/or seminary with five years of faithfully demonstrated pastoral church ministry experience
  • Possesses strong skills in leadership, organization, administration and interpersonal relationships

Basic Responsibilities

  • Preaching: Consistently delivers engaging, relevant sermons based on sound biblical doctrine and gives practical understanding and application of God’s Word
  • Leadership/Development: Partners with and encourages leaders of ministry teams, small group leaders, and worship leaders and equips believers to serve in ministry
  • Community Involvement: Spends time and engages with other ministries and community organizations to further the mission of Cornerstone within the community
  • Spiritual Leader to congregation: Maintains strong connection to Holy Spirit through prayer. Holds baptismal services and, as time allows, performs hospital visits, counseling, weddings and funeral services.
