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.
