Grace Lower Stone Reformed Church is located near Rockwell, NC, approximately thirty miles Northeast of Charlotte. It is one of the oldest churches in North Carolina, organized around 1750 as a Reformed congregation. As such, we are looking for a pastor with a strong German Reformed background. As per Article IV of our constitution the pastor must:
“Have an undergraduate degree and a Masters of Divinity, be a member of the church, called by Christ to the ministry of the Word, ordained and consecrated by prayer and the laying on of hands to preach the gospel, to exercise pastoral oversight, to administer the holy sacraments and to perform the rites of the church.”
“It shall be the duty of the pastor to set a good example to his Congregation, conduct all services on Sundays, Holy Days, and such other days as the Congregation may desire, to direct all the work of religious education, administer the Holy Sacraments, visit the sick, comfort the distressed. He shall make an annual report of his work to the Congregation. The pastor is ex-officio member of all organizations within the congregation. As long as he is pastor, no other minister shall perform any religious ceremony in the church without his consent.”
The congregation requests the pastor be a strong spiritual leader proclaiming the Bible as the true word of our one and only God which includes a strong prayer life. Can both effectively minister to the sick, aged, and youth while also having a strong sense of direction for the church’s needs.
Grace Lower Stone Reformed Church is financially stable with no debt, and offers a comprehensive salary/benefits package.
The candidate can be assured that their resume will be prayerfully and confidentially reviewed and discussed as we follow God’s hand in our search for our next spiritual leader. A church profile and other information is available upon request. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
