Canterbury

Canterbury Community Church
(United Church of Christ & American Baptist Church)

Pastor Full Time

93 Members

Compensation Guidelines with Benefits

We sense the Canterbury United Community Church (CUCC) is being Spirit-led to rebound from a long season of transition and relative quiet, by turning in a new direction. We feel called to step boldly beyond the bounds of our sanctuary, existing church family, and traditional worship practices to discover and help meet the emerging needs of a broader community of hurting, drifting people. We are therefore seeking an infectiously enthusiastic settled pastor to lead us; someone whose personal journey and struggles have helped them to develop a deeper Christ-informed understanding of how to engage with others through struggles and joys alike.

We’re looking for someone who, through the word of God, can proclaim a life-giving alternative to today’s pressures, fears, and on-going conflicts in this “now is everything” world. We desire someone who will not only work with youth and families in this endeavor, but who can also relate to our aging population. We need someone who will challenge and stretch us, yet who will do so compassionately and with a willingness to stretch themselves as well--providing comfort, yet discouraging us from clinging tightly to it.

Pastor-3/4 Time

$49,000 includes benefits

Additional $2,000 per year special fund for pastor's discretionary use

55 Members

What do we seek in a pastor?  Members responded with several common themes to the questions of what we are looking for in a pastor to join us in our journey of faith.  We visualize our new minister as someone approachable and people-oriented and who is committed to pastoral care.  We seek someone who can inspire and challenge us.  We look for scripture and words from the pulpit that can provide us with spiritual nourishment.  We enjoy hearing ideas of how we can apply the Word to our everyday life.  We desire someone who will enjoy working with other churches in our community.  Most of all, we hope for a pastor who can help us add new members to our church family and bring past members back.  We want to “scoot over” in our pews and share our love of Christ, our sense of community, and our love for neighbors.  We pray that God will provide us the shepherd to meet our needs, both known and unknown.
