Employment

Lexington Presbyterian Church (LPC) is located in the midlands of South Carolina.  Historically a small agricultural town that also served as a bedroom community to the state’s capitol, Lexington has experienced tremendous growth over the last 40 years.   Lexington is a thriving, family-oriented community with strong schools and a growing economy.

LPC has been present for much of that growth, transitioning from a small church plant to a solid church of 400 – 500 members.  A full history of the church can be found here.

At this time LPC is seeking a critical ministry position that will help the church grow in its disciple making capacity.  The Ministry Director position will work very closely with the senior pastor to oversee and lead the operational and disciple-making ministries of the church.  The position will provide opportunities for teaching in different settings, but an emphasis will be placed on operational excellence, group oversight, and leadership development.  You can see the approved job description here. The following characteristics will be required for the person ultimately selected for the position:

 

  • Ability to teach; strong theological understanding
  • Ability to articulate a clear philosophy of ministry
  • Ability to lead ministry staff and professional/administrative staff
  • Experience and skill with leadership development
  • Excellent communication skills, both orally and in writing
  • Experience with strategic planning
  • Understanding of financial management and budgeting issues
  • Understanding of HR and organizational issues
  • Ability to develop a strong connection with the senior pastor
  • Demonstrated capacity for both leadership (leading people/leading change) and management (overseeing the execution of tasks to accomplish the priorities of the church)

 

If this sounds like an opportunity that closely aligns with your background, experience, gifts, and interests, please submit a cover letter, current resume, and a one-page summary of your philosophy of ministry to ministrydirectorsearch@lexingtonpca.org.  The search will continue over the summer, but applications received before July 21, 2017 will be assured to receive full consideration.
