Church Planter in Central Nebraska

Title

Church Planter in Central Nebraska

Summary

We are looking for a faith-filled and people-centered individual or couple to bring the light of the gospel through church planting in a small town in central Nebraska. The area has a strong Irish-American presence as Irish Immigrants originally settled it in the 19th century. The area relies on agriculture and jobs in a larger, nearby city. This is an opportunity to do incarnational ministry in a small, rural community. The candidate will seek to develop a faithful, evangelical witness with a view towards forming a local body of believers of all ages. The candidate will have the opportunity to partner with InFaith’s field director (who is familiar with the area) to develop the ministry, including a mentoring relationship if appropriate. Opportunities may also exist to establish meaningful partnerships with other ministries/churches in nearby areas. This position requires raising full support.
