Ministry Description First Congregational United Church of Christ is a forward-looking church, confident that God is still speaking. Founded by abolitionists who invited African Americans into the full life of the congregation, we are a church rich with history. Our forebears repeatedly expanded the church’s understanding of the beloved community in their time. We follow their model, seeking to hear God in new ways, in our relationships with each other and with the changing world around us. God calls on us to be a beacon of that beloved community, to demonstrate an extravagant welcome, to be radically inclusive. We are located in the heart of the nation’s capital and have a long history of social action and urban ministry. We act locally, nationally, and globally on behalf of and in partnership with the vulnerable and persecuted. We are a Just Peace church (1985), Open and Affirming (1987), and Multiracial Multicultural (2003). We seek a Senior Minister who lives a life of discipleship. We desire someone made wise through a breadth of experiences and exposure to the rich diversity of humankind. The Pastor will cultivate the church as a spiritual home for congregants, nurture us individually as we need it, and nourish us all each week so that we may do God’s work in the world. We desire, specifically, a senior pastor who can shepherd the congregation through the transformation needed to be truly multi-racial and multicultural. We seek someone who is comfortable and compelling in the pulpit, with a confidence drawn from an ongoing practice of theological reflection and community leadership. The right candidate will have a naturally collaborative style. Finally, it is our hope that a kind and joyous individual will shepherd our congregation into its next chapter of our history.
