Church vision

To be an equipping outpost that sends disciples into the community for Kingdom impact.

Position Available:  Senior Pastor

Who We Are:

We are an energetic congregation with a passion for evangelism and sound Biblical teaching. Lebanon has 65 members from two years old to 90+ and 35-40 regularly attend Sunday worship. Although small in number, most of our congregants are actively involved in the life of the church.  After our most recent pastor retired in December of 2021, we went through a productive transitional period and developed a new Mission and Vision. Each Sunday we meet for Worship and have Sunday School for all ages. Various Growth Groups meet during the week. We also enjoy fellowship meals once a month after Worship.  A high number of our members share their musical gifts on the Worship Team.  We have a heart for Missions and are involved with several foreign and local ministries.  Lebanon has a strong culture of prayer and is blessed with mature believers where discipleship is desired.  We have been around a while but are not stuck in our ways and are eager to go where God is moving.  We look forward to embracing the man God is calling to be our pastor.

Who We Seek:

A pastor who…

  • Is passionate about evangelism and reaching the unchurched with the good news of Jesus Christ.
  • Boldly teaches and preaches the entirety of God\’s Word including controversial issues such as abortion and homosexuality.
  • Is a people person with a shepherd’s heart and enjoys cultivating relationships with members as well as with people in the community.
  • Diligently oversees the primary functional areas of church operations including giving staff members adequate direction.
  • Communicates clearly and frequently to the congregation.
  • Is a servant leader, committed to the pastor/elder/staff/volunteer model to further our mission, inspiring the church to effective action.
  • Is a visionary and a goal-oriented leader who is not afraid to set the bar high.   Matthew 17:20-21; Philippians 4:13
