Part-time Solo Pastor – Faith Presbyterian Church, Franklin, Wisconsin

Faith Presbyterian in Franklin, Wisconsin is seeking a Part-Time Solo Pastor. The full Job Posting and Ministry Information form (MIF) is on the Presbytery Church Leadership Connection (CLC) site here

Faith Presbyterian Church is a small, stable, and faithful congregation witnessing to Christ’s grace and love in a growing suburban community outside of Milwaukee. We are a multi-generational congregation with dedicated staff and musicians and a Christian education program that spans all ages. Faith is actively involved in mission work locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally. 

Our mission is to share the word of God, assist with the needs of our community, and through our Christian discipleship, nurture all God’s people. 

At Faith, we invested in our spiritual direction by completing the Holy Cow assessment as a congregation in 2018. Our vision team analyzed the results identifying the strengths and opportunities in our Faith family. Through this process, we identified just how important it is to be flexible as we govern the church body, and we recognized the impact that leadership can have on our church’s well being. This also illuminated the importance of congregational care and the relationships we build within the church in sustaining our spiritual lives. 

While we have been unable to worship together in-person during COVID-19, we continue to keep the heart of Faith beating, maintain our church staff, and care for our community. This required an adjustment to nearly every aspect of how we conduct worship, but provided us the opportunity to focus on our deepest needs and shift our resources to where they are most needed.

We nurture our Faith family and community through:

  • Worshiping virtually on Facebook Live
  • Mailing hard copies of our services to members without internet access
  • Added devotionals on Facebook Live
  • Increasing our food pantry schedule

Faith is actively involved in the City of Franklin, sharing our mission and collaborating with the community, schools, the local health, police, and fire departments.
