Vanderbilt Presbyterian Church is calling a Pastor/Head-of-Staff with 10+ years of experience, preferably having served a minimum of two congregations, who demonstrates the characteristics of integrity, energy, and effective, faith-based leadership. Because of our spiritually, politically, and generationally diverse congregation, we need someone with the ability to engage and inspire all aspects of our congregation through preaching, teaching, and guidance.
VPC is committed to serving the ministry programs of a multigenerational community emphasizing our vision statement in our programs. VPC has a history of successful programs and anticipates a future of exciting new ones. The new Pastor will function in a general pastoral role as Head of Staff. Our Education & Family Ministry Team sponsors support groups for parents, Relay for Life and other fellowship activities. It also offers church school for all ages, vacation church school and confirmation classes. Our youth participate in worship services and in a variety of mission projects. VPC’s Learning Center provides a Christian learning environment for area preschoolers. Our Mission involvement focuses on combating hunger and meeting affordable housing needs locally and worldwide through ‘Feed 5000’, Habitat for Humanity, Mission Peniel, and the Heifer Advent Fair. Worship, Music and Liturgical Arts oversees a renowned music program and offers concerts open to the community, Chancel and Handbell Choirs, plus youth music programs and a Summer Music Camp.
