Church, Ministry
Pastor of Formation for Mission
Pillar Church
Full time
Holland, Michigan USA

Title:  Pastor of Formation for Mission  

If the gospel is to challenge the public life of our society... it will only be by movements that begin with the local congregation in which the reality of the new creation is present, known, and experienced, and from which men and women will go into every sector of public life to claim it for Christ, to unmask the illusions which have remained hidden and to expose all areas of public life to the illumination of the gospel. But that will only happen as and when local congregations renounce an introverted concern for their own life, and recognize that they exist for the sake of those who are not members, as sign, instrument and foretaste of God's redeeming grace for the whole life of society. (The Gospel in a Pluralist Society)

Purpose – to equip and empower the community at Pillar to witness to the gospel of Christ with their lives in their locations and to strengthen the mercy and justice missions of the church in the world. The work of this position will assist us all to live into and out of Jesus’ claim on us as the “salt of the earth and the light of the world” and will lean heavily into the particular articulation of this in Lesslie Newbigin’s remarkable claim.

Responsibilities – create, implement and oversee in cooperation and collaboration with other staff and congregational members the adult formation ministries of Pillar Church in order to strengthen this community to be a “sign, instrument and foretaste of God’s redeeming grace for the whole life of society.”  This will be accomplished through:
o    Adult Formation opportunities
•    Bible Studies
•    Book Studies
•    Sunday School
•    Small Groups
•    Collaborating with community events (Veritas Forum, World Christian lectures, Hope, Calvin, WTS seminars and conferences)
•    Initiating new opportunities to urge us in mission
•    Giving guidance to the Karios Fellowship
•    Implementing and sustaining the Newbigin Fellowship
o    Congregational Fellowship
•    Participating in Pastoral care and calling
•    Nurturing congregational relationships
•    Initiating congregational fellowship
o    Local and global partnerships
•    Nurture and sustain reciprocal relationships with local and global churches and organizations that share a similar vision
o    General pastoral responsibilities including:
•    Preaching at the direction of the lead pastor and in a way that assists in the fulfillment of the mission stated above.
•    Funerals
•    Weddings
•    Worship participation
•    Deacons and Council meetings
•    Denominational participation

Skills: the person to fill this position will be a woman or a man with a deep love for Christ, strong commitment to the importance of the local church as a missionary agent in culture, a self-starting leadership capacity and a love for people that draws him or her to pursue relationship.  

Accountability – this person is directly accountable to the Lead Pastor and generally accountable to the Pillar Church Council

Compensation – this is a full time ordained position and the financial package will be in accordance with the denominational guidelines and continued flourishing of Pillar Church.
