Senior Minister, Wellesley Hills Congregational Church
The Wellesley Hills Congregational Church seeks a full-time Senior Minister who is an inspiring preacher, possesses a collaborative leadership style, and leads with strength, vision, and compassion. The Wellesley Hills Congregational Church, also known as the Hills Church, is located in Wellesley, Massachussetts, a beautiful, thriving Boston suburb featuring excellent schools and quiet neighborhoods with close proximity to world-class artistic, educational, and medical facilities.
This Hills church is a large Christian community of faith with committed lay leadership, vibrant educational programs for all ages, a rich music program, and active outreach. Our open and affirming ('ONA') congregation is without pretense, welcoming all comers into fellowship. Leadership in our church is characterized as an active partnership between our multi-clergy staff, non-clerical staff, and many faithful lay leaders, with an emphasis on cooperation and collaboration.
We seek a confident leader, an outstanding communicator and preacher with strong interpersonal skills, and a consensus builder who listens well, exhibits humility and relies on God. Our ideal candidate will be a person of deep, personal faith who has firm beliefs but rejoices in diversity and possesses a sense of humor and warmth. We desire a Senior Minister who can provide decisive, strategic leadership and who possesses a firm grasp of financial issues including strategies for stewardship. We seek a person who will embrace our appreciation for an inspirational and reverential worship service and share our dedication to carrying out God’s work.
