If you are looking for urban ministry in a rural setting, here we are! The First Presbyterian Church of Sunbury is a small, historic church in downtown Sunbury, PA. Our central location places us in close proximity to many of our neighbors as well as to the town park that is used for a variety of community activities. A core group of committed and hardworking members are determined to revitalize our church. We want a church that is really serving its community and sharing the love of Christ. We believe that God wants more for us and from us.
The full time pastor who is called to lead this congregation must be passionate for Christ with strong biblically based preaching and teaching. It will be important for this pastor to be enthusiastic, able to think outside the box and to take risks. In collaboration with church leadership this person will lead worship, shepherd, care, encourage and guide us in spiritual maturity. Administrative duties, supervision of staff and building our Christian education program will also be important pieces of the pastoral duties.
Our small town/rural setting offers a lower cost of living yet we are within easy driving distance of a multitude of outdoor activities and cultural events.
This position is funded for three (3) years from our endowments.
