    Job Description

    First Parish in Lincoln is searching for a full-time settled Senior Minister, to begin ministry in August 2022. We are an interdenominational church, affiliated with both the UUA and the UCC, but open to all, serving a wide range of faith backgrounds. We will be pleased to consider applicants through either denomination, and we also welcome letters of interest from ordained ministers who are not currently affiliated with either denomination or not presently serving in a pastoral position. If you are not affiliated with the UUA or UCC, and would like to be considered for this position, please send an email along with a letter of interest and your resume by December 10, 2021. Since we don’t fit neatly into any denomination, we ask that all candidates include 2-3 paragraphs describing why they are particularly interested in serving First Parish in Lincoln. Interviews with candidates will be scheduled for February and March 2022 in anticipation calling a settled minister in April or May.

    We seek a minister who is a substantive and inspiring speaker, a dedicated and caring pastor, and an energetic collaborator responsive to the long tradition of active lay leadership that has creatively sustained and engaged our congregation throughout the pandemic; and who is willing to take an active part in community life, to nurture growth and diversity in our membership, and to support our social justice and action initiatives in our region and beyond.

    Links to our UCC Church Profile should be posted here by late October, and our UUA Congregational Record will be posted by December 1st. This search page will be updated with additional information about our church and community throughout the fall.

    Application closes: December 10, 2021
