First Christian Church of Effingham is an independent Christian Church in Effingham, IL, a city of about 13,000 people. We are currently looking for a Senior Pastor due to the upcoming retirement of our current one.
Our current mission statement is: “First Christian Church is a family of believers in Christ who love God, one another and their community called by God to restore the practices and principles of the New Testament Church.”
The congregation is mainly older people. Prior to Covid, First Christian had an average attendance on Sundays about 88 people. Our current average is 60. Currently, the leadership consists of a Board of Elders made up of the Senior pastor, Associate pastor, and 3 elders.
A parsonage is available, along with a salary and benefits commensurate with experience.
Submit a letter of interest and a resume by mail or email to the Board of Elders.
