We may look like a beautiful, classic New England Church.  Although incorporated in 1779, the times and opinions have long since changed.  Rev. Dr. Martin Copenhaver, President of Andover Newton Theological School, thought small churches in New England were dying until he spent a day with members of our church.  We seek a strong pastor with the confidence, spiritual development and sense of community ties for which our church is known.  If you are caring, flexible, experienced and faithful, we would love to talk to you.  Our doors are wide open and our enthusiasm is over flowing.

Do you desire to live in a small town, yet be close to the ocean, mountains, and amenities that our state capital and Boston offer? 

Do you want to work collaboratively with a congregation to make a difference in our local community?

Does the possibility of developing small group ministries, including a budding youth group, excite you?

We look forward to hearing from you.

Pastor 1/2 Time

45 Members

$31,000 (includes housing allowance)

Nestled in a former agricultural village turned bedroom town, Madbury UCC continues to turn hearts to God, to follow Jesus, and to be guided by the Holy Spirit.  Because we are a small band, we work side by side, active in service, patient and caring with each other and our pastor, searching to find modern ways to raise funds and share our good news.  We are Open and Affirming.  We also provide hands on post detention support to immigrants.  A warm welcome is offered to all and we seek to reach out to those in need.  Adjacent to the Seacoast area, Madbury maintains a small town feel of informality, compassion and intimacy.  Our sister congregation, Maranatha Indonesian UCC, has stretched our hearts and minds in new directions, and we are open minded and eager to receive our new pastor’s creative ideas, while valuing the traditions of the UCC. 

We seek a pastor to share our fellowship and help us visualize the future.  Our pastor needs to communicate well with both young and old, facilitate our use of social networking, understand the UCC’s developing role in our current society, and help discern our church’s mission.  We offer a part time position with a salary of $31,000 including housing allowance.  We are open to discussing employment requirements and negotiating benefits to achieve a fair agreement.. Grounded in scripture, we hope for a pastor to shepherd us in our spiritual growth, be sensitive to our needs and idiosyncrasies, and encourage us as we try to be the Lord’s presence on earth and carry the light of a loving God into the future.

Members of the South Church congregation bring a variety of faith backgrounds to shape our worship, music, and education experience. This inclusive mix creates a vibrant atmosphere in which to explore faith. We seek a pastor who inspires us with good will and humor to continue the exploration—nurturing our personal growth, strengthening our church family, and encouraging our service to the wider community. In recent years we have added new members, we have sent delegations to our Ukama partners in Zimbabwe, and we have helped establish a summer food program for school children. Now we seek a settled pastor who will embrace all of this activity!
