Calvary Gospel Assembly is looking for an individual who loves Jesus to serve our church as the Lead Pastor.

Do you have a servant’s heart and a love for people of every race, age, and cultural background? If so, you would be helping to lead communicatively by the preaching of God’s word, administratively in the planning of church events and programs, and by the example of a life lived by faith and discipline.

You would work closely with a small team of church staff, including a youth pastor and an administrative assistant/worship director, as well as with the church board and elders. You would help to cast vision and encourage the body of believers to serve and love their community and to take the Gospel into every aspect of their lives. You would need to have a passion for reaching and training young people, but also be able to bridge generational gaps and can nurture a culture where the whole body is working properly in love. You would need to strive to not only be a loving part of this faith community, but also be a face of this church to the community of Estherville. You will need to have a shepherd’s heart, who believes that everyone is valuable in Christ. As you may know, the opportunity for ministry can happen at any time, and so we would ask that you be willing to be flexible and be prepared to live an “on call” lifestyle.

So who is Calvary Gospel Assembly and what are we about? Great question! We are a growing, vibrant, and small church of around 80 people who love one another and desire to reach our community with the good news of Jesus. We try to promote a family-like culture with welcoming services and authentic compassion and care for one another. Part of our vision is to have a faith community that is diverse ethnically, generationally, and socio-economically. We believe that if we set out to accomplish something, whether it be an event for the community of Estherville or a worship event, that we should do it as excellently as we can, so as to show the excellence of Christ. We desire to be a church dependant on

God’s grace through prayer, and a church that loves and enjoys God’s Word and clings to it’s promises. We are a relatively young church, in regards to age demographics. We enjoy a contemporary worship service every Sunday morning. The available services and ministries at Calvary show what we are passionate about. We offer an engaging children’s church during the Sunday morning service, as well as access to a caring nursery. We have youth group Wednesday nights for 7th through 12th as well as a community youth center that is open Friday and Sunday nights. We offer the Celebrate Recovery program for those seeking freedom from hurts, habits, and hang-ups. We do regular events for the community of Estherville and the community of believers here at Calvary. These are just a few ways in which this church serves Estherville, and we are looking for someone who can help to strengthen the already existing ministries, as well as be innovative in strategizing for new ministries.

We consider this a full time ministry position that comes with a salary, vacation time, and cell phone and mileage reimbursement. If you want to work in a casual, yet focused, environment that is open to change, please send your resume to Kyle Schubert. Visual resumes strongly encouraged. Please, no phone calls.
