Cordele First United Methodist Church, the largest church in our multi-county region, is an 1100 member church with a worship attendance averaging 550+ up from 250+ in the last two years. We anticipate having a worship attendance averaging 750+ within two more years. Cordele is a growing community that is located in southwest Georgia. It is the largest city in a thirty-mile radius. We are located two hours south of Atlanta and 90 minutes north of the Florida border.
Our unique geographic placement provides for some truly exciting ministry opportunities in a very hurt and broken world. We are a multi-congregation church with four worship services: traditional, contemporary, Spanish-language contemporary, and Soul Food. The church has sixteen staff including three pastors (lead, Hispanic, and discipleship), three ministry staff (youth, children, and music), four support staff (administrative, communications, financial, and facilities), accompanists, nursery workers, and janitorial staff who all form a team.
As a result of our recent growth we are currently seeking a Discipleship Pastor. If you would like to be a part of a ministry team that is making a difference in a non-homogenous community please send us your resume’ along with salary requirements.
The successful candidate will be:
-passionately in love with Jesus and his Church
-deeply committed to making disciples not just converts
-wanting to work in an intentionally diverse multi-cultural context
-a team player with proven track record
-an outside-the-box thinker with desire to see people’s lives transformed for Christ
-have a gift for organizing and equipping disciples, leaders, and teams
