Why We Love This Opportunity
Faith Community is located 45 minutes north of Denver, in beautiful Longmont, Colorado. Faith Community is a multi-generational church that is not your typical “Lutheran Church.” FCLC pays honor to the Sacraments, Scriptures, Creeds and Confessions with a modern, casual and relational approach.
The Ministry of Faith Community began in 1979 when Pastor Paul Johnshoy was called by the Central District of the former American Lutheran Church (ALC) to serve as a mission developer here in Longmont. During the early years, FCLC held worship services at an elementary school.
Miraculously, FCLC became the recipient of a large donation which was used to purchase and construct the original multipurpose space in 1983. In 1989, Pastor Dan Hansen was called to serve as lead pastor at FCLC. Pastor Dan is only the third lead pastor in FCLC’s history. In 1991, a new education & office wing was constructed. The new wing housed busy Sunday School classes and Wednesday evening youth activities, and more than doubled the square footage of the building.
Eight years later the congregation decided it was time to build again. In 1999, the congregation surprised Pastor Dan for his 10th anniversary by raising funds to start the building of a new sanctuary. Under the leadership of Pastor Dan the church has seen significant and consistent growth. In 2018, FCLC started a new construction project to update and expand their multipurpose room which currently hosts their Saturday night services.
Faith Community is devoted to making disciples who make Jesus known in the world. They’re on the hunt for a youth pastor who equips students, leaders, and families to do the same. More than hosting great events, Faith Community values Biblical teaching and practical application at the center so the Great Commission and Great Commandment are fulfilled. The youth pastor must be a leader of leaders who is able to mobilize teams of volunteers.
Multi-generational ministry has been a hallmark of the success of Faith Community. The next youth pastor will incorporate all ages into the teaching and leading of the youth ministry. There is a great legacy, wealth of knowledge, faith and resources available to help the youth pastor be successful.
