We believe that ministering to the hearts and minds of our congregation is one of the most important things we do at Westminster Presbyterian Church. As we fellowship and learn together, we are preparing ourselves to minister to others outside the church.
INTERIM PASTOR (Click for Ministry Information Form)
Minimum Effective Salary: $51,000
We understand that an Interim Pastor is a temporary position that will assist our church to not only maintain our “regular” work, but also challenge us to strengthen all areas of our ministry together as we prepare for the arrival of a new called pastor. Understanding the difficulties of this transition to a pastoral relationship, we want our interim to not simply maintain the status quo, but also boldly offer unique strengths and work with us as we determine where our Lord is leading us, including, possibly, the Vital Congregations Initiative.
We are committed to finding an Interim Pastor who, most importantly, loves as Christ loves, will guide us in the ways of Jesus Christ, has high regard for the authority of scripture, and maintains the values of traditional reformed worship. Our congregation is seeking an outgoing, charismatic, and passionate leader who will be dedicated to Westminster and the Nacogdoches community, and who feels that ministry is not a job, but rather a calling to serve.
Westminster Presbyterian Church’s members are called by God to declare God’s love for all through Jesus Christ; to nurture and encourage spiritual growth; and to share the love and joy found in Christ by giving of ourselves to our community and world.
We are a church family of about 220 members. Our family members have different opinions, different backgrounds, and differing political persuasions; however, we have one thing in common ― a desire to honor our Lord Jesus Christ.
Our basic beliefs are consistent with mainline Protestantism. We place a heavy emphasis on the sovereignty of God and our lives are lived out in gratitude for what God has accomplished for us in Jesus Christ.
Presbyterians understand the equality between clergy and laypeople, and the absolute right of the people to elect the officers who govern the church.
We welcome all to our church and believe that we offer a climate of worship which is best described as spiritual, but also classical and traditional.
In our worship we place emphasis on the proclamation of the Word, classical and traditional music, and the celebration of the sacraments.
We offer a place of service for all who call Westminster home.
