This is a new position created to provide management and coordination of Community Presbyterian Church (CPC) staff and boards thereby strengthening CPC’s community outreach, church leadership development, and connection of new members into the active life of the church, and communication with existing members.

The preferred candidate must be able to relate to congregation members of varying ages, theological backgrounds and stages of faith development. They need to have a respect for tradition (traditional service) and a willingness to embrace new ideas and concepts (contemporary service) as we reach out into our surrounding community to fulfill the great commission.
