Open Pastor Position – Associate Pastor

Cornerstone Church is actively seeking to bring on an Associate Pastor in 2019. This position will direct leadership development at Cornerstone, and perform some duties similar to those of an executive pastor. There will be limited opportunities for Sunday morning preaching. A full description is available on this document: Assoc_Pastor_Description.

Our church is in the middle of a 5 year vision process called “Growing Up in Christ.” The Associate Pastor would be a key player in joining us for the final two years of this process as we seek to develop in evangelism, discipleship, leadership development and church planting.

A helpful description of the kind of pastor we are looking for is described in this article: https://www.vanderbloemen.com/blog/the-7-essential-attributes-of-exceptional-executive-pastors

Cornerstone has budgeted this position to work ~25 hours per week in 2019 (see job description for more details). This position would work well for a man looking for bi-vocational work, a transition into pastoral ministry, or lighter responsibilities from previous pastoral experience. Candidates willing to raise support to get to full-time can apply as well (please indicate that on any cover letter).

If you know of a possible candidate or would personally like to submit a resume, here are the particulars:

1. We are taking resumes through January 11, 2019. The search team will begin reading resumes and praying through candidates in early 2019.

2. Please send a cover letter and resume via email to Pastor Matt Proctor, one of the members of our search team: pastormatt@cornerstone-marion.org.

3. Those candidates we would like to consider further will be contacted to fill out a questionnaire and/or to set up an interview. We will respond to every candidate in some form or another, Lord willing, by February 1, 2019.
