An evangelical leader who is earnest in their own devotional time with the Lord, so as to encourage us to nurture our relationship with God. We believe our Pastor should be honest, gregarious, thoughtful, faithful, and have a gift for pastoring with care. We want someone able to communicate, an inspiring preacher/teacher of the Word of God and theology, and administer the sacraments. The must be willing to become a rostered pastor in LCMC, hopefully of Lutheran background. They should have a passion for reaching young people and young families. We hope they have experience growing a church, but potential is more important to us than degrees or actual experience. They will need skills to: provide pastoral care and guidance; minister in crisis; connect with people of all ages; visit parish members; inspire, and motivate others in the service. We recognize, as a two-point parish, a pastor will need to be able to delegate and train lay people as necessary to help in the responsibilities of our ministry in order to keep it healthy and strong. Our ecumenical relationships are important to us, so they should be visible in the community so they can reach out to non-members and be a witness of God's love.
