Pastor

Church or Organization: Powell River Reformed Church

Powell River, BC

Full-time

Powell River Reformed Church is nestled on the southern coast of British Columbia with the Pacific Ocean on our westerly horizon and the coastal mountains and numerous lakes in our backyard. Though travel in and out of our city (population 17,000) is accessed by either air or ferry, amenities of all kinds are available locally, including sports, cultural arts, shopping, hospital, schools, college, etc.

PRRC was a new church plant in 1990 and became affiliated with the RCA February 1, 1991. Only one church of varying Christian denominations resides here. As a result, Powell River has a very active and supportive Ministerial Association through which numerous joint ministry ventures are held, as well as monthly gathering of the pastors. Collectively the churches are currently involved in bringing the Young Life youth program into the community.

Challenges for all the churches here revolve to a great extent around outreach and discipleship. This is reflected in the fact that only 7% of the population are church affiliated, and within PRRC there are 27 active confessing members (plus 8 baptized children) with 41 adherents. Age demographic shows 40% of members under 65 and 94% Caucasian.

We are looking for a pastor whose desire is to partner with and further enable the congregates as together we live into our Mission/Vision Statement: God is moving us forward to be visible with the love of Jesus in creative ministry that meets community needs.

Although open to receiving other North American applicants, we strongly encourage Canadian candidates from both the RCA and CRC to apply. Minister profiles should be sent to: prreformedchurch1@gmail.com. If you would like to see Powell River Reformed Church’s profile, please contact Marla Rotman at the Office of Ministry services, mrotman@rca.org.  Please specify “Powell River Reformed Church” in your request.

Together with the leading, teaching and guiding of our pastor we are eager and willing to work as a team to continue and improve the programs and youth ministries we already have in place. We look forward to welcoming a pastor who will inspire us through spirit-filled messages from the pulpit and who will create new opportunities for growth and fellowship so we can continue to serve our awesome God for another 180 years!

Fairview is located in the heart of Illinois, thirty miles east of Peoria. Our historic church has been conducting services continually since being organized in 1837 and is the oldest Reformed Church west of the Allegheny Mountains. Worship is still conducted in the beautifully restored, original two-story building completed in 1841. Sharing the shady one block area where the church stands is a modern Fellowship Hall with pastor's office. A lovely four bedroom parsonage, built in 1999, is across the street.

If you desire a peaceful, rural setting in which to reside and minister to others, Fairview may be the answer to your prayers and ours!
