Village Missionary Pastor

Village Missions Purpose

Village Missions exists to glorify Jesus Christ by developing spiritually vital country churches in rural North America. We fulfill this aim by placing small town pastors in country churches that might otherwise have to close, and in doing so, preserve the Gospel presence in over 220 communities across the United States and Canada. Currently, Village Missions is looking for several small town pastors!

Summary of Responsibilities:

As a Village Missionary, the applicant will integrate himself into the local church, as well as the community at large. He will lead the church as a shepherd through such avenues as preaching, teaching and mentoring. He will show the love of Christ in the community through visitation, volunteering in local activities and serving alongside neighbors in their trades. The pastor will live in the same community he preaches and will work, alongside his family, to both preach the Word and love the people in the small town or rural location. He must also raise and maintain a minimum level of support throughout his ministry.

A Village Missionary faces many challenges each day while serving rural congregations and communities. As a Village Missionary, he may be called upon to help with farm chores, to work on a broken-down car or to spend the day on a fishing boat, listening as someone shares what’s on his heart. He will visit people in jails and in hospitals, call upon them in their homes and open his home to them.

Key Duties

  • Preaching during worship service each Sunday
  • Spending time in God’s Word in BOTH personal study and sermon preparation
  • Serving in other areas of need in the church such as Bible Studies, VBS or Sunday School
  • Visiting local church and community members on a weekly basis
  • Finding ways to integrate in the local community such as sports, school or fire house
