Part-time; Flexible Hours | Reports to Senior Pastor
The Outreach Ministries Coordinator is responsible for the essential religious duties of contacting church members who are at risk of becoming or have become disengaged, connecting the church to the sick and shut-ins within the church community, and helping the church to meet its mission:
We the people of Christ Lutheran Church, believe our mission is to share God’s love and forgiveness through Worship, Word and Sacrament. We seek to care for the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of others through the gifts of time, talent and treasure with which God has blessed us. We believe we have been called as living witnesses to exist for others, so that they may know Jesus Christ as Lord. As evidenced by our ministries, we believe strongly in outreach and care of our fellow human beings.
This includes seeking and providing opportunities within the community for individual and group ministries and church-wide outreach efforts.
