Longview Community Church
Longview Community Church is an ancient-future place that has rich roots but is also poised to attract and grow the next generation. The next Senior Pastor joins a ministry primed to grow exponentially in the next 5 years.
Longview Community Church (LvCC) has a long and rich history of proclaiming faith in Jesus Christ by believing, growing, and serving. The church is looking for a dynamic leader who feels God’s calling to help expand upon its rich history. LvCC seeks to welcome younger generation neighbors to join us and be transformed by Christ. Our vision is for Longview Community Church to be known as a welcoming family being transformed by Christ and expressing His unconditional love to our neighbors. Our mission is to LOVE GOD, GROW TOGETHER and SERVE OTHERS. Culturally, Longview Community Church is a body of believers where diversity in denominational background is looked upon as a strength. It is a place where differing beliefs can be discussed in an atmosphere of love and respect, where growing up into mature Christians can be accomplished in a spirit of unity.
Named by Forbes magazine as one of “America’s Prettiest Cities”, Longview is ideally located between Seattle and Portland, Oregon. Both the mountains and the ocean are just 90 minutes away. Lake Sacajawea, the crown jewel of the city, provides an excellent venue for outdoor recreation, concerts and celebrations.
This Senior Pastor position at Longview Community Church is a unique opportunity to implement a new vision and mission of the congregation that will make it a beacon of light in our surrounding community. They will lead a church that is ready to make Jesus more known in the city of Longview and beyond. They will lead a committed and gifted team of full-time and part-time staff and to lead a congregation that is committed to growing and becoming a true church for the community. They will lead a debt-free church with financial dexterity and dynamic ministries and work with seasoned lay leaders and staff who are full of wisdom, energy, and passion.
Longview Community Church is a congregation founded and based in diversity yet firmly anchored in mainstream Christian evangelicalism. Presbyterianism and Methodism have been historical influences in establishing basic templates of church governance and worship style, but the church has never aligned itself with a particular denomination. In this context of Christian plurality, the effective Senior Pastor must be comfortable with a flexible approach to ministry, accepting and valuing a broad range of Christian traditions.
