Ministry Description We are a congregation of the United Church of Christ, located in Orange County. We seek a full time Senior Minister to serve a growing congregation of approximately 350. To receive serious consideration, candidates will be able to demonstrate collaboration and program leadership talents well-suited to leading a program size church. (http://storage.cloversites.com/firstlutheranchurch2/documents/Raising%20the%20Roof%20Summary_2.pdf) A commitment to Progressive Christianity is required. The search committee is especially interested in candidates who can demonstrate gifted homiletics attractive to a well-educated community; and commitments: to “open and affirming” embrace for LGBTQ+ persons; to racial and ethnic diversity and inclusion; to social justice causes including climate change. Our next permanent minister will collaborate with others to build programs that are attractive to young people and young families. Orange County, once known for its very conservative political culture, since 2018 is represented exclusively by Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives. The University of California, Irvine is a strong economic and cultural influence on our city. Salary basis will fully meet conference guidelines. Candidates representing all manner of diversity including disability, gender expression, sexuality, and ethnic heritage are encouraged to apply.
