The Rescue Church in Portsmouth, VA, is seeking its next Pastor to lead and shepherd our flock. Our beloved Pastor Mike Ellis went home to be with the Lord unexpectedly a few weeks ago and thus we have begun our search process. The Rescue Church is a unique ministry that needs a unique shepherd. We are known here for ministering to those in our community who struggle with addiction, helping them to find new life and wholeness in Christ. The mission and vision of the Rescue Church is to glorify God through the transformation of souls by evangelism, discipleship, and training for service. We identify greatly with the sentiments of C.T. Studd, who said "Some want to live within the sound of church or chapel bell; I want to run a rescue shop within a yard of hell." We need a full-time shepherd that will not only embrace the unique ministry the Lord has given us, but also has the special skill set required to provide godly direction and leadership to such a ministry. If you think this is something the Lord may be leading you to consider, then we encourage you to submit your resume to us.
Relevant education and previous pastor experience is preferred.
