|Why We Love This Opportunity *|
|Nestled in one of the most beautiful areas of the midwest, CrossRoads Peosta is seeking their next Lead Pastor to help take this church to the next level! CrossRoads is one of the only Bible teaching churches for miles in this part of eastern Iowa and they’ve been blessed to go from a dream five years ago to an established church of over 400 on a weekend in 2019.
CrossRoads is relentlessly committed to see the Gospel impact the lives of people in their context and they know God has called them to expand the influence of His Kingdom to communities all around Peosta. The right next level Lead Pastor is going to have the time of his life joining this team and being a part of “Helping people in Western Dubuque know and love the real Jesus”!
|Church Description *|
|CrossRoads Peosta is located in the heart of “Iowa Nice” country. As a bedroom community of Dubuque, Peosta is just a short drive from the western bank of the Mississippi River and the vibrant downtown life of Dubuque. Peosta and the entire area is experiencing rapid growth and CrossRoads Peosta is strategically positioned to meet people where they are at and help them find Jesus.
CrossRoads Peosta is an extroverted church who are always thinking about life through the lens of the person who is still far from Christ and they are always striving to meet that soul wherever its at and help them take the next step toward Christ. With a solid leadership team and a congregation continually mobilizing to reach their neighbor, CrossRoads Peosta is ready for the right Lead Pastor to join their team and take the ministry deeper and wider.
|Position Description *|
|CrossRoads is seeking a leader with the right mix of visionary leadership and practical administrative skill to grow their community in the pursuit of Jesus. This is an intentional succession plan to transition the bi-vocational planting pastor into an evangelism/discipleship role.
CrossRoads is searching for a lead pastor who has experience in further developing an established church that is emerging from the planting phase and exists in a CrossRoads field serving primarily younger families and singles. They have a capable staff with some known gaps and areas of strength, and they seek a leader who can assess and structure their staff to fit the next phase of life at CrossRoads. This will involve making strategic decisions regarding the appropriate staff makeup, likely both hiring and developing existing staff to fill their needs. It is also their desire to see CrossRoads grow in generational diversity, both through new additions to their community and through the discipleship and equipping of their existing congregation as they grow and mature. CrossRoads has a variety of staff and lay-led ministries which the lead pastor will have the opportunity to work alongside existing leaders to develop.
