Canterbury

Canterbury Community Church

Pastor Full Time

Compensation Guidelines with Benefits

We sense the Canterbury United Community Church (CUCC) is being Spirit-led to rebound from a long season of transition and relative quiet, by turning in a new direction. We feel called to step boldly beyond the bounds of our sanctuary, existing church family, and traditional worship practices to discover and help meet the emerging needs of a broader community of hurting, drifting people. We are therefore seeking an infectiously enthusiastic settled pastor to lead us; someone whose personal journey and struggles have helped them to develop a deeper Christ-informed understanding of how to engage with others through struggles and joys alike.

We’re looking for someone who, through the word of God, can proclaim a life-giving alternative to today’s pressures, fears, and on-going conflicts in this “now is everything” world. We desire someone who will not only work with youth and families in this endeavor, but who can also relate to our aging population. We need someone who will challenge and stretch us, yet who will do so compassionately and with a willingness to stretch themselves as well--providing comfort, yet discouraging us from clinging tightly to it.

At this time the church is no longer accepting Ministerial Profiles (January 11, 2022)

We desire a leader who is compassionate and caring; who will ask the hard questions while listening to and respecting our diverse views; who will be led by God’s grace, sharing real-life examples to support and guide us on God’s path; who is committed to help us address poverty, addiction and other conditions in our broader community; who will teach us to be more responsive and active in our community.

Our congregation strives to serve as a beacon of light for truth and Christian love. Our church has always been a welcoming place, providing a safe, caring social home for our community. God is calling us to continue to serve these roles while getting involved more deeply in our community in creative ways that actually changes lives.

Pastor:  1/2 time

$49,000 plus benefits * see details in the profile

55 Members

What do we seek in a pastor?  Members responded with several common themes to the questions of what we are looking for in a pastor to join us in our journey of faith.  We visualize our new minister as someone approachable and people-oriented and who is committed to pastoral care.  We seek someone who can inspire and challenge us.  We look for scripture and words from the pulpit that can provide us with spiritual nourishment.  We enjoy hearing ideas of how we can apply the Word to our everyday life.  We desire someone who will enjoy working with other churches in our community.  Most of all, we hope for a pastor who can help us add new members to our church family and bring past members back.  We want to “scoot over” in our pews and share our love of Christ, our sense of community, and our love for neighbors.  We pray that God will provide us the shepherd to meet our needs, both known and unknown.

Portsmouth

North Church of Portsmouth United Church of Christ

Pastor-Full Time

Conference Compensation Guidelines + Benefits

114 Members

We seek someone to provide leadership in our faith journey. We hope our new pastor will help to bolster North Church's commitment to our love of neighbor, children, and creation. We are looking for someone that will connect with and nurture our members and engage the community with a willingness and energy to navigate this time of transition with us.


Portsmouth is a vibrant and diverse community. Social and environmental justice is a point of focus for the majority of individuals and businesses. Many see our soaring steeple as a steadfast pillar of the town. Our Market Square sanctuary is the iconic structure that graces many advertisements, paintings, and pictures associated with Portsmouth. However, many Seacoast residents are unaware that we are a vibrant, functioning church and not just a historical landmark. We endeavor to change that by inviting others to join us for both virtual and in-person worship. With the leadership of our new pastor, we will continue implementing new ways to strengthen connections with our local community, welcome new members, and create new concepts for cherished traditions. Historically, North Church was a community meeting place in Portsmouth. We are reviving that tradition to use our building not only for worship but also in collaboration with local social service and mission groups, youth, neighboring churches, and local artists.

At this time the church is not accepting any new Ministerial Profiles (January 27, 2022)

Part Time Pastor

$21,110 + Benefits and Housing Allowance of $6,740

First Parish of Somersworth is not just a building. As a congregation, we are devoted and caring. We are seeking a pastor who is willing to work with us to reach out to local families and the community. We hope for a strong spiritual leader who will help us to grow as individuals in our faith and guide our vision for our church to grow into a dynamic presence in our community.

Our church would greatly benefit from someone who is compassionate and caring with listening skills. We envision a pastor who can build consensus by guiding thoughtful discussion in decision-making. And, added to that list, is a person who is honest and trustworthy, with a good sense of humor!

Swanzey

First Congregational Church of Swanzey, UCC

Pastor - Part-Time

47 Active Members

$25,000 + Benefits and Housing Allowance of $6,000

The First Congregational Church of Swanzey is looking for stability and continuity after disruption because of the pandemic and another year of various supply ministers. We are seeking a pastor whose sermons are meaningful and relate the Bible to our daily lives. We need leadership and help with enhancing our faith formation program (children’s program) by attracting families to come worship with us and become involved in church life.


We have a strong presence in the community beyond Sunday worship; monthly third Saturday suppers, monthly community potluck luncheons, craft groups, Bible study, free concerts, fund raising events, to name a few. Friendship Hall is available for community groups or private gatherings.


Our connection to the local schools is also strong. Two graduating seniors are awarded scholarships. The Interact Club and Boy Scouts work closely with the church providing them with service opportunities. At Christmas, the elementary schools give us a list of gifts items needed for less fortunate children. Our Snack Sack program provides food for some of these same families. After school Kids Club gives school kids a gathering place for activities and socializing. Jack and Jill nursery school has rented the lower level of Friendship Hall for many years.


To continue with our current local mission, our new pastor would be visible in the community by supporting the above-mentioned activities as much as possible. We want to continue to be a welcoming church to anyone and everyone. We would welcome new and creative ideas in all areas of worship, being cognizant that we are an older congregation more comfortable with tradition than change.
