Pastoral Residency at First Free Methodist Church
Spokane, WA 99205

2021-2022 Pastoral Resident Position

 

First Free Methodist Church is a group of inter-generational people; some committed life-long Christ-followers, some sojourners, and everyone else is somewhere in between.
We don't claim to be unique or to have faith/life all figured out.
We are a group of people of mixed ages and backgrounds seeking to understand what it means to be a disciple (a follower) of Jesus Christ in today's culture.
We are a broken people in process of being fixed, a sick people in process of being made well, and a lost people who have been found by Christ.
First Church is seeking a motivated, self-starter to participate in a year-long Pastoral Residency program (Sept. '21 - Aug. '22). The Residency will be a full-immersion experience into lead/solo pastor ministry. Working with the ministry teams at First Church, the Pastoral Resident will be exposed to and participate in all facets of day-to-day local church ministry.

 

The Pastoral Resident must:

1. demonstrate a vibrant, growing relationship with Jesus Christ.

2. be a motivated, disciplined self-starter.

3. be able to communicate verbally and in writing.

4. be accessible, reliable, and flexible to face the changing needs of the Church.

5. be actively discerning a calling to vocational ministry.

 

We realize that every potential minister is uniquely called and gifted by God. Knowing this, we will do our best to shape this Residency Position in a way that highlights the applicants gifting, yet also gives a realistic experience of the life and ministry of a lead pastor.

A 12-month schedule is available for a beginning glance at the expectations for this role.
