Third Pastor Call Process

The Associate Pastor of Community Outreach will focus mainly on our local community of Lincoln. He will work alongside the Senior Pastor in carrying out the vision, mission, and strategic goals of Messiah Lutheran Church and School especially related to community outreach and engagement.
As we consider the desired qualifications for the Associate Pastor of Community Outreach, we are prayerfully seeking a man of God who:
  • Passionately loves Jesus and sharing God’s Word with an energy and heart for outreach
  • Provides vision, creativity and strategic leadership by assessing existing and new outreach opportunities
  • Builds and sustains relationships with both congregation and community members
  • Leader of leaders, equipping them with resources and training to share the Good News
  • Communicates the passion of Jesus’ love to the community and to the church through both one on one conversations and preaching
What’s the latest news?
The call committee narrowed the list of candidates to 2.  They’ll be bringing them to Messiah in the coming weeks to do in-person interviews, which will help us determine who God is leading us to call to this position.
