Due to the ill health and resignation of our beloved Lead Shepard, we are seeking a new Senior Pastor to oversee our flock.
Echo Valley Grace Brethren Church is in a rural setting at the base of a mountain. The church is located between Pine Grove and Tremont, Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania. The building sits on five (5) acres of land. The building is paid off, but a recent loan was taken out to pave the parking area (loan is with GBIF). The church is on one (1) floor and consists of a sanctuary, fellowship hall, kitchen, youth room, toddler room, nursery, a men’s and women’s bathroom and three offices. Weekly attendance is around 85.
Our new Lead Shepard should have a Degree of Divinity or similar training is, however, a minimum ten (10) years ministry experience is preferred. Our applicant will hold to the Grace Brethren directives, support our statement of faith, and firmly believe in the doctrines of scripture as vital for effective ministry. We are seeking a Pastor who will preach the Bible, the whole Bible and nothing but the Bible and who will not be apologetic for stepping on toes doing it. The applicant should be skilled in hermeneutics and be able to present the message to the body in an accurate skilled manor that will leave a lasting impression that will challenge the flock. We need help in areas of evangelism, discipleship, and bringing younger families into the church. And lastly, he must be an administrator.
We do have an active children’s and youth ministry overseen by a Youth Pastor. We have a weekly Awana program with about 25 children in attendance.
A salary and benefits package will be discussed during the interview process.
Interested applicants should send a resume and three references (at least one Pastoral and one church member, current or previous). Those interested should submit a resume and references to:
