Seeking Pastor

The Palisades Community Church (PCC) in Northwest Washington D.C. is a small, inclusive, multi-denominational church united by its members’ love of Christ and each other.

This progressive church seeks a settled half-time pastor to begin by September 27, 2021, if possible.

We are dedicated to building community amidst diversity of race, age, lifestyle, and belief, and are affiliated with the International Council of Community Churches (ICCC).

In 2020, PCC launched a non-profit called the Palisades Hub, under the direction of an Executive Director–already in place–to manage the church’s building as a gathering place for the broader community to “connect, learn and serve”. This frees the church from many administrative duties, making it possible to redefine our vision and actions for the future.

We now seek an ordained half-time pastor to inspirit our engagement with each other and the community by providing thoughtful sermons and services; communicating effectively with members and neighbors; and organizing activities. The pastor must be able to work within our democratic framework for decision-making. Salary will be offered commensurate with the candidate’s experience, preaching, leadership, outreach, and pastoral skills.

Interested applicants can access the application package below.

We intend to stop receiving applications on June 30, 2021.
