Kearney eFree Church

Executive Pastor



Why I Love This Opportunity

Mark (Monte) Montemayor


There is a definite air of excitement about the future at Kearney E-Free Church. The staff culture is very life-giving and healthy. The elders, staff, and ministry leaders are unified in mission and purpose, and the church is debt free and well positioned financially. I am excited to help Kearney find their next executive pastor so that it can continue helping people who are struggling and sharing the truth in a loving and compassionate way. This is a great opportunity for a leader to grow spiritually and professionally while developing others and implementing the vision.

About This Organization

Kearney eFree has 100+ years of church history. Originally established by a small group of Swedish women, they have had seasons of peaks and valleys. There was a re-focusing on the cross of Christ where congregants were able to share their hurts by nailing them to the cross. This prompted a rebirth through unification and reconciliation. Christ was firmly established as the sole focus and center of the church.
Currently, the church endeavors to be led by the Spirit in all things and is in a season of growth with a focus on depth over breadth. Life Groups are a core component of the ministry of Kearney eFree. God created people to be connected, and Life Groups are a place where people come to know others and are themselves known. Spiritually, emotionally, financially, and directionally leadership and vision are healthy. The church is in the strongest position it has been in for about 30 years.
