The Big Picture

Evangelical Free Church Green Valley (https://www.efcgreenvalley.org) is seeking a Senior Pastor.

The Vision

We envision a church sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with our “Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria” (the tens of thousands of residents in the Santa Cruz Valley).

We envision a church welcoming all people into the fellowship of our church family and living in harmony as committed believers in Jesus Christ.

We envision a church extending the love of Christ. It is a place where the lost, the lonely, the hurting, the depressed, the frustrated and the confused can find love, acceptance, help, hope, forgiveness, guidance and encouragement.

We envision a church which disciples people to spiritual maturity and encourages ministry participation through God-centered worship, Bible studies, small groups, seminars, conferences, and internships.

We envision a church equipping every believer for a significant ministry and challenging them to serve in obedience as God leads them.

We envision a church supporting career missionaries and church workers, both locally and all around the globe, encouraging those in our congregation to become long and short-term missionaries, and empowering every member for a personal life mission in his or her world.

We envision a church which spends at least 50% of its budget on others.

We envision a church serving as a haven for winter visitors to grow in spiritual maturity and engage in ministry.

In order to reach people in the Santa Cruz Valley we envision maximizing the use of our existing facilities, grounds and technology.

We envision multiplying the body of Christ in the Santa Cruz Valley by planting multi-generational and multi-cultural congregations.
