BRIEF SYNOPSIS OF THE PASTOR WE SEEK
The Evangelical Free Church of Oelwein, Iowa (EFCO) is a congregation of about 100 people of all ages. Oelwein is a town of 6,000 in northeast Iowa, an hour north of Cedar Rapids and 45 minutes northeast of Waterloo-Cedar Falls.
We seek a solo male Pastor with experience. He will function as an Elder among the Elders, with special responsibilities typical of pastoral ministry, such as preaching/teaching, counseling, visitation (hospital, shut-ins), conducting weddings and funerals, and some administrative oversight.
The church is intentional in disciple-making.
The congregation contributes to Faith Discipleship Center ministries in various ways. FDC is a resident ministry whose objective is to Train Men To Stand Firm in Christ and help them get a new start in life. We desire that our Pastor relate to the Center as a teacher and counselor.
We desire that our Pastor live in Oelwein, and as possible engage in community life.
