Hot Metal Bridge Faith Community is on the lookout for a compassionate and adaptable spiritual leader to serve as their interim Bridge Pastor. The urban congregation is jointly connected to the Presbyterian Church and United Methodist Church. They are seeking an experienced minister to provide pastoral care and administrative leadership during a transitional period.

Nestled in the South Side Flats, Hot Metal Bridge Faith Community welcomes all with open arms. Their mission revolves around fostering a sense of belonging, nourishing body and soul, and affirming every person’s inherent belovedness – echoing Jesus’ radically inclusive embrace.

The Bridge Pastor role, envisioned as a part-time position requiring 24-27 hours per week, calls for a minister with 5-10 years of experience. Key responsibilities include presiding over worship services, providing pastoral care, moderating the council, and supporting the congregation’s affirming stance towards the LGBTQIA+ community and marginalized groups.

A successful candidate should possess strong communication skills, adaptability, organizational acumen, and a keen awareness of social issues. They will collaborate with the council and ministry teams to evaluate the congregation’s relationship with their current building and discern future directions.

Deeply rooted in their urban context, Hot Metal Bridge Faith Community seeks a pastor who can navigate complexities with grace, embodying the inclusive spirit of their “all are welcome” ethos.
