The Big Picture
Salt and Light Church (saltandlightepc.org) is a nondenominational Reformed church with a Presbyterian leadership structure searching for a Pastoral intern/transitional Pastor who will initially work under the mentorship of the current Pastor, later transitioning to a full pastorate upon his retirement.
Salt and Light Church was established in Casper in 2007 by Dr. and Mrs. Plant as they saw the need for an intentionally reformed church in Casper. Dr. Plant comes from a Presbyterian background. Salt and Light Church, though non-denominational, is organized with a Presbyterian leadership structure. The church’s mission is to faithfully proclaim, and live out, the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Salt & Light’s currently serves several core families (20+ regular attendees) who have attended since the Church’s formation. Salt and Light Church utilizes a biblically faithful contemporary style of worship and believes in an egalitarian approach to church leadership.
The pastoral candidate will be relationally focused, theologically sound, excel in exegetical preaching, and lead in the areas of discipleship and community building. In addition, the candidate will oversee the planning of all worship services, serve as the Moderator of the Session and provide or oversee the Pastoral care through spiritual direction and hospitality.
We are looking for a candidate who is strong in their faith and relationship with Christ. They must be a strong Biblical preacher with a high view of Scripture. Prior experience not required, but beneficial. This is a tent-making or bi-vocational position. We prefer a MDiv or a pastoral studies degree (we are willing to assist a candidate who meets all other qualifications to attain a qualifying degree). Doctrinal alignment is essential as evidence by general agreement with the Westminster Confession of Faith. Self-motivated as a solo pastor, staff of one who needs to stay the course with a good work ethic to work well independently and in accountability to the leadership of the church.
