These are exciting days at Buhler MB! I want to share with you something from our church Pastor Search Committee and it's "hot off the press." It is the advertisement we will be sharing with a number of people and places to help our church discover and call God's choice for us as a Lead Pastor and his family. This ad will go out on our web site this week and in the coming days will be shared with selected people such as our MB District Minister and his colleagues across North America. It will also be posted on ministry job boards at selected evangelical seminaries and colleges, and will also be published in the MB's Christian Leader magazine. The Pastor Search Committee also wants you to share the information with anyone you may know who may be qualified as a potential candidate for our new Pastor. Our deadline for applications is set for November 10th. You are encouraged to pray fervently for the Lord to send us his choice for us and our servant-leadership needs as a church. Here's the advertisement.
Opening for a Lead Pastor
In January of 2018, Buhler (KS) Mennonite Brethren Church, a small-town evangelical, anabaptist church averaging 175 in attendance, called an Intentional Interim Pastor because we have struggled with vision, leadership and a loss of members over the last 15 years. We wanted to find renewal and begin to rediscover unity around an exciting vision for our community and beyond. Our desire is to continue to turn around and move forward with godly, servant leadership, and accomplish a new mission of "glorifying Christ by loving God, loving others, and making disciples through the power of the Holy Spirit." Our newly discovered vision is nothing less than to "intentionally transform communities through Christ," and we are seeking a new Lead Pastor to help us do just that. We need pastoral leadership and care help in capturing this vision and moving forward out of our comfort zones and into our communities with the gospel of Jesus Christ. The kind of man of God and his family for which we are searching will have a depth of love for our Lord and a passion for Jesus, our church family, and our community. He will also be energetic, an effective communicator of God's Word, and have high emotional intelligence, connecting on a personal level with young and old while showing them love and helping them to know Jesus and grow in Him as disciples.
