IOWASt. Peter’s Christian Community Church in New Albin, Iowa seeks a part-time interim or permanent pastor.  St. Peter’s has been shepherded by a bivocational pastor for the past decade and a half. While we are seeking a permanent shepherd to take on this flock long term, we also recognize the wisdom of seeking the help and guidance of an interim pastor who will help us with congregational reflection and analysis so that we have a better idea of the qualities and gifts we should be seeking.  Thus we are seeking applicants interested in either interim ministry or a long-term pastorate, or interim with the consideration to remain as a permanent shepherd. Realistically we are looking for a part-time or bivocational pastor as at present the church budget is not robust enough to support a pastor and family full time, but perhaps this can change with time and with the right person leading us to growth.
St. Peter’s has been a congregation for over 130 years and has people buried in its cemetery who were baptized, married, and buried out of St. Peter’s, some as second or even third generation members! There is a rich tradition here. We also have families who have joined in the past decade, and one family that is new within 2017. We need more growth for the present health of the congregation; we also need growth for its future health, as we look down the generations and try to envision the work St. Peter’s could do for the Lord as our children and grandchildren take their places as its leaders and financial support.
The salary is negotiable depending on the commitment the pastor wishes to make. We do have a well maintained parsonage next door to the church which is currently rented but can be made available to a pastor family if needed.
St. Peter’s gives away well over a tenth of its annual income in missions work both formal and informal, supporting a 5-minute weekly radio devotional on local radio, working with other Christians in the area to support a Christian outreach project in New Albin, offering support to the needy in the area through emergency financial support, sending substantial funds to support a Catholic missions hospital in Cameroon, West Africa, and other ad hoc ministries. The congregation is debt free, having owned its church building for many years and paying cash for an addition that was built since 2000. It also owns a lovely hillside cemetery where brothers and sisters in the church are laid to their final rest. Services are held weekly, with Sunday school for the children held after services during the school year, and coffee and other refreshments served nearly every week. The women’s fellowship group holds a monthly meeting and luncheon that is open to the community. Adult bible studies are held in series based on topic and are scheduled around the pastor’s availability. We have a long time relationship with a church just across the border in Minnesota and have shared a pastor in the past, and a future partnership may be considered though is not presently arranged.
New Albin is served by the Eastern Allamakee Unified School District, with the elementary school in New Albin and the middle and high schools in the next town to the south, Lansing. Class sizes are small, and the school is staffed by devoted administrators and teachers who truly know every child personally. The school district has a long tradition of excellence in baseball and softball, track and field, volleyball, speech, music and drama. A community college serves the area with on-site classes, satellite classrooms and online courses, and is connected with the excellent Iowa four-year state university system. Across the river in Wisconsin are a number of other excellent higher education institutions.
The area is wonderful for outdoor recreation, being right on the Mississippi, with water sports, fishing, hunting, and hiking. The town is on the Great River Road with its bicycle trail in constant use throughout biking season. We believe we live in one of the most beautiful spots in the Upper Midwest. People pay to come vacation here, but we get to live here all the time!
