Ministry Description First Congregational Church of Houston was founded in 1955 as an Open Church, boldly welcoming people of all races to worship together within the segregated South. Today, FCC embraces its identity as an Open Church by welcoming worshipers regardless of ethnicity, nationality, citizenship status, sexual orientation, or gender identity. We are an oasis of progressive Christianity located within a conservative Christian neighborhood. The thought-provoking and inspiring worship services we experience on Sundays sustain us in living the truths of Jesus’ teachings and serving our community throughout the week. There is a tremendous need for our message of acceptance, love, peace, and justice here in the fourth largest city in the nation; our vision is for all who seek an inclusive, progressive Christian community within greater Houston to find their church home in us. To continue our mission, we will require a leader who is both passionate and compassionate, scholarly, energetic, and creative. Our next Senior Minister will possess a love for social justice and a talent for building community among our members and will enthusiastically explore ways of increasing FCC’s visibility within the city. We seek a minister to walk with us in all activities both as a leader and as a member of our congregational community, joining with us in the full scope of our fellowship. Our next Senior Minister should be a compassionate, intellectually curious, servant leader. Our church is in excellent financial health and has a medium-large active congregation fruitfully engaged in many social justice and mission projects at the metro, regional, and state level. We would like to maintain and expand our social justice work, sustainably grow our church membership, improve our Christian education program, and find new ways to engage our neighbors. The position offers an attractive salary and benefit package.
