Church or Org Description
Plymouth Covenant provides an incredible opportunity for a leader to lock arms and hearts with a gifted staff and motivated congregation. This is a church that has been loving and strategically led and the current lead pastor, Dan, is ready to champion and transfer his leadership chips and trust to the new leader.
This new pastor will come into a healthy, financially sound, and growing church that is very motivated to reach and serve their community and world for Jesus!
A great opportunity is waiting for the new lead pastor at PCC as this person will be the anchor communicator on a teaching team. The new lead pastor will be able to mentor and grow a teaching team.
Plymouth Covenant Church is located in Plymouth, Minnesota just 12 miles northwest of Minneapolis. Being so close to Minneapolis-St. Paul, there’s plenty to take in, especially if you’re a fan of the Vikings, Twins, Timberwolves, or any of their rivals! The Twin Cities are filled with parks, museums, restaurants, and of course, the renowned Mall of America.
PCC longs to see spiritual awakening ripple across our church, community, city, and around the world as we help more and more people encounter Jesus.
As the primary spiritual leader of Plymouth Covenant, the senior pastor exists to lead the congregation in the accomplishment of God’s mission for the church as a whole and in the lives of its individual members. The ideal candidate is a gifted communicator and leader who has a vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ, is passionate about the Gospel, and lives out their Christian faith with integrity in all areas of life. Working in partnership with the shepherd team, the senior pastor sets the vision of the church and leads ministry teams in initiatives to accomplish that end. The senior pastor carries the shepherd’s heart for the flock, leads by example, and develops the same heart in all ministry leaders. The senior pastor serves as the primary teacher and communicator at weekend services.
