Pastor

Church or Organization: First Reformed Church

Fulton, IL

Full-time

The First Reformed Church of Fulton, IL looks forward to discovering the woman, man or couple God is preparing to serve as its next Pastor. This is an excellent opportunity for an experienced general practitioner, a pastor who loves planning and leading worship, preparing and delivering sermons, providing pastoral care and spiritual direction, working alongside a core group of dedicated volunteers, and being present in the community as a representative of the congregation.

The ideal candidate for this opportunity is a dedicated Christ-follower characterized by a deep and growing love for Christ and the Church, a relational person who loves people, listens well, and maintains healthy boundaries, and a theologically trained person who affirms a Reformed understanding of the Christian Faith.

The ideal candidate for this opportunity will be uniquely gifted and equipped to (1) create and deliver biblical sermons relevant to the congregation’s vision and needs, (2) plan and lead the weekly gathering of the church, (3) shepherd the people of God with love, wisdom and grace, and (4) encourage and empower a core group of dedicated volunteers (Consistory) towards the realization of the vision of First Church.

The First Reformed Church has been serving the Fulton community for over 150 years. More recently, the church has decided to focus its ministry on a relatively neglected demographic: those over the age of 55, those, they believe, who are more likely to appreciate churches traditional worship style which features the sermon supplemented by the organ, a choir, responsive readings, and the sacraments. Of course, making that decision is one thing and implementing it is another. The Consistory hopes a new pastor will help them live into this mission.

Come Hear

Listen, a bell is ringing.

Listen, voices are singing.

This is where the mountains

Climb to the sky,

Where the world is painted,

And words are songs.

Where the past meets the present,

And comes back to life.

This is where God dances.

This is where God plays.

Listen, children are laughing.

Listen, hands are clapping.

Five, six, seven generations,

Two hundred years we gather.

This is where the steeple reaches

For the sky,

And the doors are open for

All to come inside.

Where broken souls are welcome,

And heavy hearts can heal.

This is where God speaks.

This is where God opens up his arms.

Listen, the mountains are singing.

Listen, someone is praying.

Here is where we bow our heads

Here is where we pray,

This is where we come

To laugh and cry.

This is where we come

When we need to

Listen.
