Greenleaf Friends Church in Idaho is seeking a Lead Pastor.

Dear Friend,

We invite you to prayerfully consider applying for the position of Lead Pastor for Greenleaf Friends Church.

Greenleaf Friends Church (GFC), a congregation of 150-200 participants, is a member of Northwest Yearly Meeting of Friends. The church includes the Hispanic congregation La Casa del Alfarero. Our vision is to be a church that loves the Lord our God, listens to His voice, studies His word, obeys, holds fast, and shares His love.

Now choose life, so that you and your children may liveand that you may love the LORD your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the LORD is your life, and he will give you many years in the land he swore to give to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. (Deuteronomy 30:19b-20)

We are seeking a Lead Pastor with the intent to hire additional pastoral staff whose gifts would complement the gifts of the Lead Pastor. Our current vacancy is because our pastor of 17 years has recently retired. He has served the Greenleaf community well during his time here and we wish him well in his retirement.

The city of Greenleaf is rural, but growing as is most of Idaho. Our previous Lead Pastor had been preparing us to grow as a church body in anticipation of the growth around us. If the community is growing, then we should expect growth in the church if we are meeting the needs of the community. One of GFC’s major ministries is Greenleaf Friends Academy (GFA), a K-12 school with just over 200 students that provides a Classical Christian education. The church and school have separate facilities but share the same property. We are committed to providing leadership and support for the school.

Our goal at GFC is to be able to reach out into our community and minister to those around us. We also want to continue to support the ministry of GFA so that it can train up young people to be effective ambassadors for Christ as they go out into the world. We have a long-term goal to be involved with church planting in the area. We are seeking a pastor who can assist us in our endeavor. We are praying for God’s provision and orchestration to make this happen.

Our long-term desire is to keep a balanced emphasis on encouraging our people in faithfully seeking the Lord and our corporate commitment as a church to outreach and discipleship.

Trusting in Jesus,
Greenleaf Friends Church
