Job at St. John's Church

Family Pastor

Job Description

St. John’s is seeking a full-time Family Pastor to serve our growing church and community. Drawing from the richness of our “deep roots” and the relevance of a modern church, we have experienced consistent growth over the last five years and believe this new position will play a vital role in continuing our mission to love God and love others in a way that brings hope to the world.

The ideal candidate will be gifted and excited to work with all ages, as this position is a blend between children/youth (60%) and adult (40%) ministry. The job description is intentionally broad, leaving room for the evolving needs of the church and consideration for the unique gifts of the individual called to the position.

Being a church that is “Christian first, Lutheran second”, interested candidates do not need to be from a Lutheran background, but should be open to serving within our unique context.

Some of the initial goals in the position will include:

The successful candidate will have strong relational skills, administration and coordination, a passion for equipping others, a calling to disciple children and adults in a multigenerational church, and an excitement about being part of a larger team working together toward common goals.

Formal education and/or experience leading family and youth/children’s ministry is required.

This is a full time, salary position. Salary will be based on qualifications and experience. Benefits are available, with total compensation package not to exceed $40,000-60,000 range.

St. John’s is a member of the newer, evangelical and mission-focused denomination Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ (lcmc.net), and is a charter member of a grassroots movement of churches in Walworth County across denominational lines called Refresh (refreshchurches.com).

We are located in the middle of beautiful Walworth County, commonly referred to as the “lakes area” of southeastern Wisconsin. Approximately one hour from Chicago, Milwaukee, and Madison, this area is a popular vacation getaway for city dwellers, but also a great place to raise a family with friendly residential neighborhoods and top-rated schools.
