The Litchfield Christian Church, located in Litchfield, MN, is seeking a Lead Pastor with proven evangelical abilities.
It is our prayer that God will lead us to a Pastor who has a deep understanding of Scripture and believes firmly in the inerrancy of God’s Word. This Pastor will work with the Elder Board to carry out the mission of our church. That is to disciple people within the body and throughout the community by Connecting people to Christ and one another, Growing toward maturity in Christ and also Serving in the name and reputation of Christ through relationships and time spent with one another. We also seek a Pastor who is not afraid to be real and who is humble yet bold when needed. Attitude is more valuable than perfection.
Our church history goes back almost 150 years here in Litchfield, but our building does not. God has given us the opportunity to have had many new additions to our property. Specifically, a new kitchen, classrooms, offices, and a sanctuary were added 10 years ago. This has given us the ability to run church business and be a lot more efficient. In the past year we added the important role of a part-time office assistant. This role will be able to be filled again after the COVID-19 situation has resolved. We are proud of the Christian education that is offered for all ages. We offer Small Groups for adults, Kids Connection for pre-K through 5th grade, the EDGE youth group along with a women’s prayer group. All are staples of the church. Our church financial status is fair but could be improved. We give to foreign, regional, and local missions and would most definitely like to see these contributions grow. We support Pine Haven Christian Assembly summer camp in Park Rapids, MN. We feel the importance of this camp is not only to the youth but all ages. We also send money to Tabitha’s Heart and to our local county services to help area families. We have put effort into benevolence offerings, roof projects, school support and community events. This church has proven to be givers who will support what is needed.
It is important to us to find a Pastor who is able to help improve our ability to start and continue to build relationships and help us build an online presence and improve our attendance in all ages, young and old. This Pastor will use their passion to get God’s word out into our community by working side-by-side with our Elders, team leaders and other servants, including our youth leaders and youth of the church, as we make disciples to serve God.
If you feel that God is calling you to look into this possibility to join our team, to disciple with others and lead LCC into what God has planned for us, please contact us.
