Other duties include helping with a bi-monthly senior citizen luncheon, being on a rotation for teaching chapel to preschoolers and after school kids, working with college students, and preaching a few times a year. There is room for creativity within the position for the person to use their gifts and strengths to shape the job in the ways it best fits them.

We are looking for someone who is ordained in the Free Methodist denomination who also has their Master’s degree in the area of divinity, ministry, religion, or spiritual formation.

We are looking for a person who can minister to people across diverse cultural, socio-economic and educational levels. This person should be a self-starter who is able to bear fruit and wants to shepherd God’s people to know Him more.
