(posted 8/14/19) – Zion UCC/EA is located at the Southern end of Illinois just outside of Metropolis Illinois.  Although still a UCC denomination we do not agree with the “open and affirming” policy of the UCC.  We have recently joined the Evangelical Association because of our need to seek the truth thru the traditional Bible based Evangelical theology our church was founded on.  Over the past several years we have seen our attendance decline and therefore we see ourselves as a mature congregation who still enjoy the occasional sound of babies during worship. We believe that the Holy Spirit is alive and well at Zion and try to display the love of Christ out in our community.

As we seek a new pastor we remain open and listening to the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Like most churches, we are looking for a Pastor who loves the Lord and is passionate about serving God and his children. A Pastor who will reach out to the community and help bring in young families; while at the same time serve the needs of our older core members. A Pastor who will come to be considered a friend and family member by all who come to worship at Zion. Yes, rebuilding will be a challenge but as followers of Christ we are used to challenges. Prayers for guidance as we seek a new settled Pastor.

For more information or to apply, please email zionuccmetro@frontier.com.

(posted 2/11/2019) – MANNA CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP (Manna) is a dynamic and vibrant evangelical, inter-denominational chaplaincy at Princeton University focused on thoughtfully engaging the pluralistic university community with a coherent worldview grounded in the Christian gospel. Manna seeks a qualified individual to be the Executive Director (ED) for this thriving organization of approximately 80-100 students and 500+ alumni. Under the auspices of Manna’s Board of Trustees, the ED will be responsible for creatively casting and strategically implementing Manna’s mission to “develop and engage a gospel worldview.” The ED will supervise a staff consisting of a full-time Campus Director (CD), full-time Development Manager (DM), as well as other full-time Ministry Fellows (those conducting year-long internships with Manna). The ED is the staff liaison to the Board and the primary means through which the Board ensures that Manna is fulfilling its organizational mission.

Responsibilities

The responsibilities of the ED fall into two categories: Ministry Oversight and Organizational Growth. It is anticipated that the ED’s time will be divided equally between these two responsibilities.

1. Ministry Oversight: The ED will ensure the spiritual and organizational health and growth of the undergraduate ministry at Princeton. The CD currently handles most of the ministry administration on a day-to-day basis, but the ED will oversee and work with the CD to maximize effectiveness and growth. The scope of Manna’s ministry is described below:

  • Large Group Teaching
  • Small Group Ministries
  • Retreats
  • Discipleship
  • Counseling
  • Public Lecture Series
  • Cross Fellowship Unity
  • Finances
  • Board Liaison
  • Staff Oversight

2. Organizational Growth: In addition to providing oversight to Manna’s current ministries as described above, the ED will work with the Board and staff to vision-cast for the Strategic Plan and spearhead its implementation. Manna’s main objectives over the next 3-5 years will be in the areas of development, alumni, and leadership.

Qualifications

Candidates should have at least 5 years of experience, with at least 2 years of experience in campus or church ministry. Other experience can be in nonprofit, government, or business contexts.

Ideal candidates should be self-starters, have an entrepreneurial spirit, are comfortable leading and equipping staff and student leaders, and be eager to combine ministry backgrounds with development and organizational growth. Candidates must also model excellence in their personal and vocational lives, with demonstrated gifts in spiritual leadership and mentoring.

Manna values its community orientation, and the ED should be able to foster a grace-centered community through active involvement in the lives of students.

Other necessary qualities include: ability to learn quickly, excellent written and oral communication skills, developed management skills, proactive communication habits, passion for the university and students, and intellectual grasp of the strategic role of the university in our culture. Candidates should be spiritually mature Christians with a devotion to Scripture and prayer.

Bachelor’s degree required. Master’s-level degree in theology or ministry also required, with a firm grasp of and appreciation for Reformed theology. Ordination or licensure in a recognized Reformed Protestant denomination is preferred but not required.

Compensation will be competitive and commensurate with experience and training. Position is located in Princeton, NJ. Preferred start date is July 2019.

Interested applicants should send a cover letter and resume to Andrew Protain, the Chair of the Manna Board (mannaboard@gmail.com).
