Ministry Description First Congregational Church of Manchester, VT, is searching for a full-time, settled pastor to lead us into the renaissance of faith and life we believe God is calling us to accomplish. This church is yearning for a wide-open door to Jesus Christ, spiritual revival, a robust ministry to families and young people, care for our elders, a profound reconnection through service and outreach with our wider community, and a loving relationship with our new pastor. Through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, we have arrived at a point of prayerful clarity for our church’s future and invite a new pastor to join us as we embark upon this hopeful journey as a renewed congregation of committed Christians, the latest generation in a history of 241 years. Located in Manchester, Vermont we are nestled at the foot of Mount Equinox, with the Taconic range to the west and the stunning Green Mountains to the east. Our area boasts many multi-seasonal activities and cultural offerings: Arts Center, summer theater and museums, as well as hiking, fly-fishing, golfing and skiing just to name a few. We are a mix of “local” residents, part-time second-homeowners, people who have chosen to make this their home, plus a new wave of families who have moved to the area in the last 18 months. People are known to move here so their children can attend the excellent schools for which we are noted. Worship in our 150-year-old classic New England church and sanctuary is open to all whether they be members or friends, searchers or skeptics. We want to be there for everyone, unconditionally. Our music program adds to the inspiration people seem to especially desire in our trying age. We have prepared a new wineskin for the new wine we desire (Matthew 9:17). We invite you to look more deeply into our Local Church Profile. We are eager to learn who God will choose to bring the indispensable gifts of ministry and pastorship to this renewing Body of Christ!
