Pastor -- Brockton, MA

Grace Church
900 Main Street
Brockton, MA 02301

Job TitleHigh School Pastor

Job DescriptionBrockton is a large city in southeastern Massachusetts, home to approximately 100,000 residents. Many of the folks in our city struggle with poverty, drug addiction, broken homes and most importantly, lack of a relationship with God . Many people here are suffering economically as well as spiritually and Grace Church attempts to meet the physical and spiritual needs of our city. Our goal is to let God's gospel grace shine through us on the city we love so much.

We are looking for a pastor who can lead us in being a light to this city by pouring out the love of God in servitude to our neighbors, for the sake of the Gospel.

  • He must possess integrity, humility, vision, passion, communication skills and a vibrant personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
  • He must be committed to gospel-centered teaching.
  • He must be committed to expositional preaching. 
Expositional preaching at its simplest, is preaching that is focused on explaining the meaning of Scripture in its historical and grammatical context. He must be able to preach what the Bible says, to a contemporary audience that is likely unfamiliar with the cultural and historical settings that the passage was written in. The preacher dares to speak on behalf of God. He stands in the pulpit as a steward "of the mysteries of God" (1 Cor 4:1) and declares the truth of God's word, proclaims the power of that word, and applies the word to life.

  • He must have a high view of the sovereignty of God.
  • Experience in, and/or passion for, the urban context is preferred.
  • He will meet the pastoral qualifications described in 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:7-9, and formal ministry training and education is preferred.
We can only offer a part-time or bivocational salary at this time. We pray that we can grow to the point where we can offer full-time salary in the near future. The prospective pastor can also consider fundraising the remainder of his needed full-time salary until we grew to the point where we could support him full-time.

Information about the Church: Grace Church Brockton is a four year old church with about twenty members. Some of us are new in the faith; some have been Christians for years. Our members come from very diverse backgrounds, which helps us to reach out to any newcomer that walks through our door. Every member of our small church possesses a spiritual gift that helps make us a devoted team focused on sharing the gospel—both in word and deed—with the city of Brockton.

Information about the Church: The First Baptist Church was established in 1816 when six families met in a home next to “the falls” to hear the preaching of a Baptist minister. It is said that this was the first time a Baptist had ever “delivered a discourse in Hampton Falls!” Since then, the church has continued to proclaim the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The church has grown from its roots as a small town community church. Presently, our church community draws regular attenders from over 30 towns, as many as 30 miles away. The church remains committed to intentionally proclaim the truths revealed to us in the Bible in order that Jesus Christ may be glorified in everything!

We believe that the purpose of the church is as stated in Ephesians 4: “to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that that the body of Christ may be built up, until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God, and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.”


To that end, our ministry is organized around four areas: Worship, Instruction, Fellowship, and Evangelism.


We welcome you to come and worship with us as we continue to proclaim Christ to the seacoast of New Hampshire.

Lead Pastor -- San Jose, CA

Mercy Hill Church
6455 Almaden Expwy, Suite 207
San Jose, CA 95120

Job Title: Lead Pastor

Job Description: For the past 25 years I have had the joy of planting and pastoring this church. But now it looks like God is calling my wife and me to plant a church in the Middle East.
What this means is that Mercy Hill Church needs a new lead pastor.


We have around 100 people, including kids. We are beautifully diverse when it comes to age, race, and socio-economic status. We meet Sundays at Allen-at-Steinbeck Middle School (820 Steinbeck Drive, San Jose CA 95123).


We are Christ-centered and Word-based. We are passionate about training every member to grow in making disciples who make disciples for the glory of Jesus Christ. We value earnest faith in Christ, deep love for each other, and heartfelt pursuit of evangelism.

Our church community is built around home groups, which are intergenerational communities of 6 to 15 people who gather weekly to bear each other’s burdens, study God’s Word, pray for each other, and encourage each other to share the Gospel and make disciples.


Our Sunday gatherings emphasize expository preaching, the biblical pursuit of spiritual gifts, loving and praying for each other, and passionate worship.


We are committed to missions, especially in the 10/40 window. We support a family that was sent out from our church, who are working with an unreached Muslim people group. And we regularly send short-term teams to North Morocco to help missionaries bring the gospel to the Rif Berber people.
We are part of Acts 29, which is a church-planting network. We have sent out two successful church planters, have helped plant a church in downtown San Jose, and long to plant more. (Click here to see the doctrinal distinctives of Acts 29 churches.)


It’s important that you understand the season our church is in. Over the last two years a lot of our people had to move out of the area. These people are deeply missed, and as a result, our church has been grieving. And the news that my wife and I might soon be leaving has added to this grief.


Also, we are experiencing a drought when it comes to conversions. Our people are pursuing loving connections with lost people, but it’s been a while since we’ve seen conversions. So our leaders are fasting and praying to see a fresh outpouring of salvations.


So this is an excellent opportunity for what might be called a church replant, where you would work with our existing leaders to develop a fresh vision for the church, and lead the church to a whole new level of effectiveness. The reason I say this is an excellent opportunity is because our people are motivated, loving, teachable, and a joy to pastor.


Your responsibilities would be to lead and shepherd this flock. That would include preaching and overseeing the worship gathering, training and raising up elders and home group leaders, leading a home group, overseeing volunteer and part-time staff which right now includes an administrative assistant, children’s ministry director, junior high leader, young adults leader, and worship leaders.


We are looking for someone who is passionately trusting Jesus Christ, led and empowered by the Holy Spirit, committed to expository preaching, a heart-felt worshiper, a servant-leader, and who is thrilled about making disciples who make disciples for the glory of Jesus Christ


When it comes to finances, we know that San Jose is an expensive place to live, and are committed to providing a salary and benefits that will free you from financial concern so you are free to minister.


If you are interested, please fill out and submit the questionnaire found at http://goo.gl/forms/WqPDUIn9Mq, and email a resume, recommendation letters, and a sample sermon MP3 to mhcleadpastorsearch@gmail.com.


Thank you,
Steve Fuller, Lead Pastor
Mercy Hill Church
