The pastor will work closely with the Session in expressing and executing the vision and core values of One Ancient Hope Presbyterian Church. In support of this goal, the pastor’s primary responsibilities will be to weekly proclaim the word and administer the sacraments. The church also expects that the pastor will be embedded and engaged in the larger Iowa City community for the purpose of reaching and serving our city. To accomplish this task, the pastor is expected to continue studying theology, church history, and contemporary culture while also maintaining a practice of faithful prayer and devotions. Along with the ruling elders, the pastor is also responsible for the pastoral care of the congregation. These responsibilities include providing pastoral counseling, fostering spiritual development, and equipping members to participate in ministry.
OAH expects that the incoming pastor will have an annual salary and housing benefits of $70,000-80,000 commensurate with experience, in addition to a full range of benefits.
