Carlisle/Kilbride ON (,

Carlisle/Kilbride United two-point pastoral charge provides spiritual sustenance to two communities on the Niagara Escarpment north of Hamilton and Burlington. We are a community of worship rich in traditions and growth opportunities, and are currently looking to welcome a new Order of Ministry personnel.

We are seeking to form a partnership with a minister who has a strong background in traditional Bible-based theology but is also willing to explore a variety of worship formats, including multimedia. We are also looking for an effective leader to help us achieve and sustain growth. Our goal is to welcome a minister with strong interpersonal skills and the ability to empower, motivate, and inspire. We value the skill to reconcile varying points of view, the capacity to meet intergenerational needs, the ability to form strong community partnerships, and a sense of humour.

If God is calling you to us, please send a resume/CV and a one-page statement of your spiritual philosophy on today’s role of the church and its minister to by 30/4/2017.
