Pastor

Highland Park Presbyterian Church will look to our pastor to lead and teach us to strengthen our Christian faith and use our gifts for successful implementation of our strategic plan. Our pastor should inspire members to contribute their talents, treasure and energy, reminding us that those contributions are for the sake of doing God’s work in the world.

We would like the pastor to identify and invite members to participate in leadership roles and activities that they may not have previously sought out. The pastor’s teachings should nourish and inspire the congregation to share God’s love outside our walls.

Our pastor should help Session execute current plans and identify any organizational weaknesses or opportunities for improvement. We welcome new ideas and tools to enhance the vitality of our congregation. We want to ensure we are up to date technologically and are utilizing all methods of community outreach including social media.

We want our lay leaders to be more knowledgeable in Presbyterian polity and to take increased leadership responsibilities. S/he should oversee this education and encourage lay leadership to utilize available training resources annually, particularly as new elders and deacons are installed.

By reinvigorating our congregation in spirit and participation, our new pastor will enable us to better share Christ’s teachings with our community and become more connected as a congregation.
