The First Presbyterian Church in the City of New York seeks Pastor/Head of Staff.
Across more than 300 years as a worship community, First Presbyterian Church thrives as a congregation deeply connected to our sense of place. We are rooted in and invigorated by the City that surrounds us, and more specifically, Greenwich Village – our vibrant, progressive global community of diverse faiths and intellectual traditions, needs, hopes, talents, and aspirations.
We seek a Pastor/Head of Staff to provide spiritual leadership, pastoral care, administrative oversight, and organizational direction to a staff and congregation of more than 1,000 members with a broad emphasis on worship, music, preaching, education, stewardship, mission, outreach, development and involvement of membership, and programs to address the needs of the congregation. Specifically, we are interested in candidates with experience leading a complex, multi-staff congregation as a Pastor/Head of Staff. (Experience with a large and/or urban congregation a plus.) The ideal candidate will possess a strong understanding of, and experience with, financial management and budgeting, and will be a graduate of a Seminary or Divinity School in the reformed tradition.
Along with pastoral responsibilities, the Pastor will be asked to bring experience, wisdom and perspective to the role of Head of Staff. This entails overseeing and guiding a team that includes a Director of Music, Director of Finance, Director of Nursery School, as well as additional pastoral staff. Along with empowering and guiding, the Pastor/Head of Staff will maintain a vision and understanding of how the many aspects and programs of this church harmonize to create a cohesive and inspiring experience for congregants, connecting varied and evolving elements of the church: worship, internal programming, external service, the operations and faculties, into a multilayered experience of what it means to be part of this marvelous, historic, passionate faith community.
A detailed job description is available upon request. Salary is negotiable and is commensurate with experience. Please contact the Pastoral Nominating Committee at fpcnyc.org/pastoral-nomination-committee for further information or to apply.
