Senior Pastor Search

  

Due to the pending retirement of our current pastor, we are seeking a senior pastor whose passion for Jesus Christ is evident in his reverence for Scripture and who prioritizes the expository and exegetical teaching of God’s Word. In addition, we are looking for him to be a servant leader who has a Gospel-centered focus in all aspects of life and ministry, with a desire to see the people of World Gospel Church discipled and equipped to love the Lord, live out their faith, and share that faith boldly in order to make Christ’s love known to the unreached throughout our local community and the world.

Church Information


World Gospel Church is an evangelical church of approximately 350 people with a broad range of ages and educational backgrounds.  Under the Lordship of Christ, we are led by Elder and Deacon councils and follow the principles of congregational government. The church includes individuals from a broad variety of theological backgrounds who are unified in our commitment to the truths of Scripture and the core elements of orthodox Christianity, as elaborated in our Articles of Faith.  The hallmark of our founding was an emphasis on world missions and this remains a defining characteristic of our church as we are actively involved in supporting 40+ outreach partners and equipping and sending believers called to global outreach. World Gospel also supports multiple local ministries with both volunteers and finances. We strongly desire to see the next generation discipled and equipped to be future leaders in the church, both locally and globally.  

The Sunday School curriculum, AWANA program, and Student Ministry are all deliberately designed to assist families in achieving that goal.  Sunday worship services are augmented by Life Groups and various Bible studies available during the week.  

Location

The church is located in Terre Haute, Indiana, a community of about 60,000 people with an area draw of about 250,000. Terre Haute is the county seat of Vigo County and attracts people from surrounding counties for retail shopping, restaurants, and recreation. Multiple golf courses, a children’s museum, and many city and county parks are available. Four universities are located in Terre Haute: Indiana State University, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, St. Mary of the Woods College, and Ivy Tech Community College. As a result, there are multiple sporting events, speaker series, and performing arts events to choose from. Vigo County has a large public school corporation with dedicated teachers and a new superintendent who makes faith a priority in his own life and is supportive of faith-based organizational collaboration, such as KidsHope USA and Youth for Christ, in which World Gospel is a participating church.  There is a vibrant local homeschooling community which includes the Terre Haute Christian Home Educators who host a weekly educational co-op at World Gospel, serving families from both within and outside of the congregation.
