Associate Pastor

Date Posted: May 12, 2022
Hours Per Week: 40
Congregational Church of Eastford
Eastford, CT, USA
Job Type: Associate Pastor
Other Details

The Congregational Church of Eastford is looking for its next Pastor. This position is unique in that a season of overlap is envisioned to afford a smooth transition of leadership, relationships and vision. During the overlap Pastor Mike Moran (our current pastor) will mentor and develop his replacement as needed, and transition relationships with community leaders and area pastors. During that time of transition, CCE would expect a time of increased ministry effectiveness as we will have two pastors. The transition may include a time when the new pastor has been installed as lead pastor and Pastor Mike remains in an associate pastor or lay advisory role.
At this time, we do not presume to know God’s plans nor do we know the schedule for Pastor Mike’s retirement. The length of the envisioned overlap is therefore unknown – and will depend upon the timing of God’s calling, the leadership readiness of the man God calls, and Pastor Mike’s capacities at the time.
