The Big Picture

Mt. Bethel Church (mtbethelmcclure.com) is seeking an energetic and dynamic full-time Lead Pastor, willing to adhere to our Statement of Faith. 

The Church

We are a family of men, women, and children seeking to worship, love, and glorify our Triune God through Spirit and truth. We aim to love the Lord and His people, to evangelize the lost, disciple the Saints, and to make Christ known far and wide, especially through the expository (verse-by-verse) preaching of His Word. We meet every Sunday morning, beginning with classes for children and adults at 9:00 AM, followed by our worship service at 10:00 AM. We meet Wednesday nights at 6:30 PM. More information for Men’s groups, Women’s groups, and Children’s groups is available as well. Church rolls list membership at 100+, with average attendance at 50+.

There are many opportunities for hunting, fishing and other outdoor activities.  Harrisburg (state capitol), Williamsport and State College (Penn State) are all within an hour’s drive.  Philadelphia and Pittsburgh are approximately 3½ hours away, with New York City and Washington, D.C. about 4 hour’s drive.

The Candidate

Duties will include, but not be limited to, preaching the Word and leading worship services; administration of the ordinances of baptism and communion; providing pastoral care and counseling; conducting home, hospital and nursing home visitations; teaching Bible study and membership classes; providing spiritual and discipleship training and leadership within the Church; and oversight of adult Sunday school and children’s ministries.
