Oglesby Union Church is an independent, Bible-believing evangelical church in North-Central Illinois. We are prayerfully seeking a new Senior Pastor whom God has called to utilize his gifts to teach and guide us in ministry and actively reach those apart from Christ.
The man we are seeking will have certain key attributes: He is convinced of a call by God to OUC and displays a life pattern that fulfils the Biblical qualifications of an elder defined in 1 Timothy and Titus. A consistent love for the people who make up the local church is mandatory. He will have a documented history of interacting well with those outside the church and have a good reputation with individuals and groups in the community and local area.
The ideal candidate will have a seminary degree, a Biblically-driven philosophy of ministry, a pulpit ministry characterized by strong expository preaching, and good teaching skills. He will be a spiritually and emotionally mature man whose life is steeped in prayer and the practice of spiritual disciplines. We require full agreement with the Statement of Faith, Purpose Statement, and Mission Statement of Oglesby Union Church.
