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. Thirty-five people consider ARK their spiritual home.  We are 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.  The ideal candidate will have a deep personal faith, excellent communication skills, commitment to community service and extravagant welcome, and a stellar sense of humor.  We estimate the position being about 25 hours a month which would include leading at least two services a month, with total annual compensation of $7,200. While worship is our first priority, and pastoral care a close second, participation in additional activities and meetings is negotiable as time allows, and as can be accommodated utilizing conference calls and Skype.


But just think… you could be a partner in a brand new church enterprise, growing with us 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 untilJanuary 31, 2014.
