Congregational Openings

The following congregations in Virginia Mennonite Conference have pastoral openings.

Eastern District

Warwick River Mennonite Church, a smallish multi-generational congregation on the Virginia Peninsula with big plans to serve God by serving others, is seeking an intentional interim pastor to assist in a time of transition. We are looking for a godly individual who can lead us forward from a very difficult stage to be the witness God wants us to be. If this seems like a challenge you are prepared to take on, please contact Ms. Susan Ackerman at susan@ackerman.net.

Harrisonburg District

Eastside Church in Harrisonburg, VA, seeks a Part-Time Director of Worship Ministry.  This person will champion worshiping together by leading the congregation into worship and creating an invitational environment that reflects the diversity of the city in which we live, and talent that God has brought into the church. View the job description and further details about Eastside and the application requirements.

Northern District

Lindale Mennonite Church, Harrisonburg, VA, is a fellowship of Anabaptist believers who are released from the bonds of sin, empowered by the Holy Spirit, and sent to neighbors near and far. They are seeking a youth pastor (FTE: 0.5) to guide a vibrant group of junior and senior high school students as they learn, grow, and serve. There may be opportunity for candidates with proper credentials and gifts to increase to a full-time position.

Tennessee/Carolina/Kentucky District

Asheville Mennonite Church
Consider your next pastoral assignment in Asheville NC. Nestled in the southern end of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Asheville is a lovely four-season city. We are located in an area highly desirable for those who enjoy outdoor activities. The church is located less than one mile from the Blue Ridge Parkway and in close proximity to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. We are seeking a pastor or pastoral couple for a half-time assignment in Asheville NC. There are many employment options currently available in the local area and this is a lovely area to live and raise a family. Our group is currently relatively small but we believe there are opportunities for growth and would foresee full-time employment in the future.
