As Vienna Presbyterian Church (VPC) approaches 150 years of ministry, we seek to lead people into a transforming relationship with Jesus Christ, authentic community with each other, and purposeful engagement in Christ’s work in the world. Organized in 1871 as a village church, VPC has grown into a thriving suburban congregation just miles from our nation’s capital. Building on the solid foundation of our current Pastor’s 41-year tenure, we are enthusiastic about VPC’s next season of contribution to God’s Kingdom! HERE for full statement.
VPC is looking for an authentic disciple of Christ who demonstrates a deep, personal relationship with God and an ongoing desire for spiritual formation. We seek a Pastor:
• With strong preaching skills, grounded in Scripture, who can challenge us to discern how the Word of God speaks to us and what it asks of us today.
• Who can lead us to a collective identity in Christ.
• Who can help us live out our desire to love and serve alongside one another acknowledging our different backgrounds and personal beliefs.
• The Pastor should demonstrate a practiced level of cultural proficiency with regard to the varied ethnic, racial, gender, economic, and political diversity present in the surrounding Northern Virginia area. He/she should be able to offer God’s message of hope with sensitivity and conviction.
PRIMARY ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
While the Pastor’s role is primarily spiritual leadership, the Pastor serves as Head of Staff directly overseeing the Spiritual Formation Pastor, Outreach and Congregational Care Pastor, Director of Worship, and Director of Operations. As Head of Staff the Pastor primarily exercises leadership as:
• Preacher and Worship Planner;
• Leader of Staff;
• Moderator of Session;
• Strategic Planner;
• Stewardship Coordinator.
We are convinced that Our Lord has a great plan for VPC going forward, and we are excited to continue discerning what that future will be to the Glory of God!
