SHILOH COMMUNITY CHURCH

CHURCH & COMMUNITY OVERVIEW

We are ONE church, serving TWO, unique communities, and offering FOUR services with diverse worship styles every week. We are a prayer-focused, non-denominational congregation affiliated with Converge MidAmerica, a network of churches whose mission is starting and strengthening churches. Our Orleans location, enjoys a rural setting, has physical space for expansion, and draws worshipers from two Western Michigan counties. Our Greenville location is situated in a typical, small-town America environment and attracts a diverse group of suburban and rural worshipers. Our weekly attendance averages 365 among all services.


We support our local communities with a weekly food pantry, Stephen Ministry, and our Care and Prayer Team. We have a campground that allows us unique ministry opportunities. We travel to other states to help repair damage in communities ravaged by fire or flood. We also offer prayer and financial support to several missionaries serving the Lord overseas. Through all our many service projects and opportunities, we have discovered, “We do it better when we do it together.”


JOB OVERVIEW

We are looking for a servant leader, highly relational, with a clear vision for local, regional and global ministry. He will need to have strong communication skills (both in the pulpit and inter-personally), a calling for developing new leaders, a passion for reaching people far from God, and the ability to motivate others to be a part of God’s redemptive cause. He will need to lead the church in our mission to “help people come to Christ, grow in Christ, and serve for Christ.”
