Lead Pastor

Hillside Free Methodist Church

The Hillside Free Methodist Church is seeking a Lead Pastor who can help develop growing worshippers of God who reach out in love with Christ through means that are relevant to our world today.  The successful individual will be a compelling communicator and an inspirational and compassionate leader.

Their mission must line up with ours which is to know God’s love, grow in God’s love and to show God’s love. 

At the Free Methodist Church we believe that: worship is the essence of a Christian’s life; corporate worship is meaningful for both the believer and the seeker; God deserves our best; the spiritually lost are important to us because they are important to God; love is best demonstrated by action; resources will be provided to encourage healthy family life; biblical teaching is the foundation of our ministry; ongoing development of leaders is essential to growth and excellence; and that God is glorified and His love is demonstrated to others as we learn to be generous.

Their job will be to proclaim the Good News of Jesus, inspiring people to live the full and abundant life that Jesus offers. They will provide spiritual leadership through preaching, teaching and pastoral care, equipping people to live faithfully and courageously as disciples by applying the teachings of Jesus to their everyday lives. 

As Lead Pastor, they will be an individual with a strong personal faith, with excellent communication and listening skills. This pastor will be a humble and authentic leader who is committed to and passionately engaged with people.  Through this leadership they will facilitate a desire to be open to God’s leading for the church to be engaged in both local and global communities.

The successful candidate will report to the official board and will be comfortable working collaboratively with staff while at the same time equipping, developing, and creating space for leaders and volunteers to participate in the growth and continued health of our church, for His glory.

Our prayer is that God will be instrumental in the preparation of the successful candidate and our church as we choose to move forward in His plan.
