The Role: The next Lead Pastor of Edam Full Gospel Assembly will be someone who can engage the community, equip the church to be modern day missionaries in our setting and lead us into a future of health, growth and vitality.
Meet Edam Full Gospel Assembly:
We have been ministering in Edam and surrounding area for over 40 years and believe our best days are still ahead. Presently, we meet on Sundays for worship and children’s Sunday school. We hold a midweek Bible Study. We host a Friday night worship service. During the summer we offer Vacation Bible School; this ministry engages many people outside the church. Our church members love who we are, who God wants us to become and are looking for a pastor who will equip us, work with us and lead us in engaging our community in greater ways.
Our church building has a capacity of 75, so we have space for the growth that we believe God has for our church. Additionally, our church is debt free and owns a three-bedroom manse that can be made available, if desired, to the future pastor.
About the Lead Pastor:
We are looking to hire someone who can:
• come alongside our church body and equip us to engage our community in impactful ways today and into the future.
• help us understand and implement what it means to be a modern-day missionary to Edam and surrounding area.
• develop, nurture and communicate ongoing vision and strategy.
• facilitate opportunities where church members may deepen their individual relationship with Christ, discover their gifts and be equipped to use these gifts to show others Jesus.
At Edam Full Gospel Assembly, we are a part of the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada and adhere to the PAOC Statement of Fundamental and Essential Truths. We believe in the Trinity of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and that they are active today. We believe that marriage is between a man and a woman, that God can perform miracles and heal the sick today. That every single person is on a journey and our job is to point them to Christ and love them wherever they are on that journey. All people are welcome at Edam Full Gospel Assembly.
