Part Time Pastor for a New Church

We are a liberal progressive spiritual community looking for our first spiritual leader who will grow with us.  Our worship services began in September 2012 and we officially established ourselves as a church in February 2013. Our spiritual community is comprised of 23 members and is located in a small community in western Massachusetts.

We are looking for a person with an entrepreneurial spirit to guide our faith development, assist us in connecting with our community through service, and to work as hard as we are at building our foundation and growing our congregation.  As a brand new spiritual community, we must be creative in the allocation of our resources.  The spiritual leader is an extremely important position and our yearly compensation would be $7,200. We estimate the position being about 25 hours a month which would include leading two services a month.   Although we would be excited (and very appreciative) of having this person be involved in all church activities, we realize this is not feasible since this position is only part-time.  The priority would be focusing on worship and some pastoral care.  Guidance in other areas would be welcomed – but would be dependent upon what time allows.

But just think… Because we are brand new, you would have a blank page in taking our faith community to the next level. We desire creative worship styles and are very flexible. We are not tied to existing traditions. If this calling speaks to you, we would be excited to hear from you.  Please contact Kathy DiOrio at for a copy of our church profile.  We are accepting profiles/resumes until January 31,2014.
