First Presbyterian Church of Highland, Indiana, is a congregation of compassionate, mission-minded servants whose purpose is to be the heart, hands, and feet of Jesus Christ in the community. The work of our ministries includes mission, hospitality, and a commitment to making each worship service a meaningful experience. We are in search of a part-time pastor with a youthful spirit who can minister to all ages. If this is you, join us as we work to grow our church.
We are located in an area with a small community feel, but with larger city health care, educational, shopping, cultural and spiritual opportunities. Additionally, we are within easy access of Chicago and all that it has to offer. Highland is blessed with many denominations and places to worship God -- and for collaboration. Because there are many choices, our vision is to make all who enter our doors feel welcome, comfortable and invited to be a part of our church family. Our worship is traditional but we understand that God speaks to worshipers in many ways. It is our vision to encourage the exploration and implementation of other worship approaches to provide meaningful faith opportunities to more people. Generosity and being "Mission Minded" are key parts of our identity as well as our vision. In adherence to the Second Greatest Commandment we gladly offer our time, talent and treasure.
Our new pastor will be an optimistic, motivating leader who can set goals and plans for action as we work to achieve our vision of growth. She or he will be compassionate; supporting both our mission to the community and our commitment to caring for an aging congregation. Our new pastor will be an energetic teacher and communicator with strong people skills who challenges and inspires all ages to be the heart, hands and feet of Jesus Christ.
For financial reasons this is a part-time position of 20-25 hours per week. Scheduling of those hours is flexible and negotiable. Membership growth would provide the opportunity to expand the hours, possibly to a full time position.
