Pastor–Shepherdstown Presbyterian Church, Shepherdstown, WV
Shepherdstown Presbyterian Church (SPC) is an inclusive spiritual community. We welcome all who long for meaning, hope, and belonging. Our faith and practice are rooted in the way of Jesus and are enriched by wisdom from all sources. We are committed to being and becoming a people of radical compassion, working for justice and wholeness in ourselves and in the world.
We are engaged with the exploration of racism and white privilege, support for migrant and immigrant families, solidarity with the Muslim community, affirmation of LGBTQIA+ people, donations for children in need, a ministry to homeless people, and environmental stewardship – which we emphatically demonstrated when we became one of the first solar churches in WV. As a school of love, we strive to be lifelong learners as our understanding of God’s love grows deeper and we discern what God is calling us to do.
We are seeking a pastor who will help us maintain the vibrant and progressive spirit of our congregation and lead us toward becoming a more fully inclusive and genuinely multicultural organization. We seek a spiritually mature and engaging preacher with the ability to inspire and empower a diverse and questioning congregation. Our pastor will help us continue a tradition of creative liturgy, collaborative leadership and a vibrant music ministry, and be committed to supporting our strong education programs, with particular attention to children, youth, and college students.
We are a thriving, multigenerational congregation of about 350 members, currently celebrating our 275th anniversary. We are located in a small, historic university town, just a little more than an hour from Washington, DC to the south and Baltimore, MD to the east.
Minimum 2 to 5 years of experience.
