A priority of the Lead Pastor is to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. This would be demonstrated in evidence of the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23) and consistent devotional life of prayer and personal Bible study. In addition, the Lead Pastor should be organizationally adept, demonstrate strong expositional biblical preaching and teaching and lead God’s people to prepare themselves for the work of ministry as fully devoted followers of Christ. The pastor should demonstrate strengths in working with a church leadership team and leading a multi-person staff. He should maintain a Christ-like lifestyle and a heart for sharing the Gospel within our community and our world. He will shepherd our congregation and support
community outreach efforts, assisting all believers to discover, strengthen, and apply their spiritual gifts towards the ministry of the Church. He will participate in and encourage the development and training of mature believers to come alongside new believers in discipleship.
