Cedar Rapids Christian Church in Cedar Rapids, Iowa is asking God to reveal our next senior minister, a man after God’s own heart. This candidate should have a love for all people, with sound Biblical background and adherence to the Restoration Movement. He must have a passion for preaching and teaching and be able to engage both young and old. This individual should have a heart for evangelism and be able to disciple the congregation to enthusiastically reach our community with the hope of Christ. We are seeking a leader who is nurturing and compassionate, yet bold and energetic. This person will work closely with our eldership and coordinate with our Worship Minister.
Cedar Rapids is the second largest city in Iowa with a metropolitan population of 257,000, a plentiful harvest available! We are located just four hours from four major cities, Chicago, Minneapolis, St. Louis and Kansas City. Our community is family friendly with great schools, plenty of recreation opportunities and affordable housing.
Cedar Rapids Christian Church was established in 1965 as Eastview Christian Church and is currently located on one of the most visible streets in our city. The name was changed to better reflect our outreach and updates to our facilities were made in 2019. We are seeking an individual to lead our congregation into the next chapter of our ministry. We see this position as similar to a church plant leader, teacher, visionary and evangelist as we currently have a core group of approximately 35 willing and ready servants.
Our candidate should have the character described in I Timothy 3 and Titus 2. A four year Bible college degree is required and experience in a preaching minister role is preferred.
If you have a genuine love for the Lord, His people and the lost, you may be the one we have been praying for!
