Sackville, Nova Scotia, Canada
Position: Senior Pastor
StoneRidge Fellowship Church (StoneRidge) is an evangelical Baptist church with a track record for biblical teaching that holds God’s Word as the highest and best authority for people’s lives. As a thriving community of believers, the people of StoneRidge highly value relationship with each other and the community. Our current Vision is “We exist to glorify God by multiplying God-exalting, gospel-centered, world-transforming believers through the bold proclamation of Jesus Christ in the HRM and around the world.“
StoneRidge was founded in 1976 as a small group who met weekly in a rented hall in Lower Sackville. In 1980 a property was acquired and a church was built which was expanded as the congregation grew. In 2009, sensing the need for future growth opportunities, StoneRidge moved to a more central and expanded location where a new facility was built.
Today StoneRidge is a multi-staff church with an average Sunday morning attendance of 300-400 and is well positioned for continued growth in the coming years.
StoneRidge Fellowship Church is searching for their next Senior Pastor who will be the church’s spiritual and pastoral leader. He will also provide overall guidance and be the primary face for StoneRidge to the church and community as a whole.
The Senior Pastor will be an effective communicator of Biblical truth in a culturally relevant manner that will inspire life change. He will have a shepherd’s heart for the church and a passion for what makes StoneRidge and the surrounding community unique.
As a highly relational and collaborative leader, the Senior Pastor will provide leadership to the church and staff team. He will develop the leadership potential of staff as well as lay leaders in the church.
Working closely with the Board of Deacons and with engagement of the congregation, he will collaboratively cast vision.
The successful candidate will have demonstrated success leading multiple staff within a growing multigenerational church.
While a Masters of Divinity degree is preferred, consideration will be given to candidates with a minimum of a diploma/degree in Biblical Studies (or equivalent). The successful candidate must demonstrate a commitment to lifelong learning together with personal and professional development.
