Living Hope Community Church
Old Greenwich, CT, USA
Job Type: Lead/Head/Senior Pastor
Other Details

Our current Senior Pastor is retiring in 2024 after 20+ years of faithful service to us. The goal for our Senior Pastor is to teach us what
the Bible says and how to apply it to our lives, and share Jesus’ message of love, forgiveness, hope, and healing led by the Holy Spirit. We pray this person’s joyful spirit and scripturally motivated teaching, and preaching will inspire enthusiastic engagement with the Lord Jesus Christ.
Living Hope is a church that is active and desires to grow. We are an outward focused church because of our inward focus on Christ. Our recently refreshed vision frame is intended to equip our covenant partners for a life centered in Christ. Critical to our future is discipleship and spiritual growth. Our aim is to create a culture of disciple-making with a primary investment in families and young
adults, and outreach to our communities.

Our Senior Pastor will partner with the Associate Pastor and with the Session in providing spiritual leadership and oversight for our covenant partners. This role requires someone grounded in scripture and faith– a humble yet strong preacher and leader. We are looking for someone who listens to the Lord, who is spiritually mature – an energetic preacher with deep scriptural knowledge. Our church is multigenerational and
connection with all ages is an essential.
