We Are Hiring
We want to hire one of the above.
God is at work in and through us and it's time to employ someone to help administrate our shared ministry. This is thrilling. Be encouraged. Thank God for all the pieces coming together. Our pastors and the Finance and Law Committee are eager to see us find the right person to fill one of these positions.
Why not hire another pastor?
This is a fair question, especially given the potential candidates in our congregation. First, the current need is for administrating existing ministry rather than expanding our capacity to do more ministry. Our best strategy at the moment will be to help our leaders lead rather than introduce new leadership. Second, employing a pastor would potentially represent a greater commitment to the new hire and our congregation. We're not ready for this. Thirdly, our budget allows for administrative staffing. We do not yet have the funding to employ a second pastor.
Why two job postings?
We are prepared to fill one position, but believe both are necessary. You might say we are casting our net wide and praying God will lead us to employ the right person.
Who should apply?
It doesn't hurt to ask. We'll be nice if you aren't the right person. Everyone who loves Jesus and wants to see the gospel advance and God's church prosper in Southern California should apply.
