Through my partnership with Vanderbloemen Search Group, I’m working with Lee’s Summit Community Church in Lee’s Summit, Missouri, to help them find their new Lead Pastor.
I’ve visited with the team at Lee’s Summit Community Church (LSCC) several times. They’re great people. And, after 23 years of faithful service, the Lead Pastor is transitioning to the role of teaching pastor and opportunities to minister in Asia. Because of that, LSCC is searching for a candidate to follow him in a seamless transition in becoming the new Lead Pastor.
LSCC is a growing and externally-focused church in the Kansas City area with a track record for reaching the unchurched, making disciples and furthering the Kingdom by planting churches and intentionally caring for their community. Over 1,800 people attend services each weekend.
The Lead Pastor will serve as the chief communicator, teacher and visionary for LSCC. He will be responsible for sharing the gospel and communicating the vision of the church, leading the staff and elder teams and championing all areas of growth including church planting. The candidate will lead from a place of a servant and have a strong relationship with Christ. He will be able to teach with clarity and authenticity, lead LSCC into the future with respect for its history and be relationally and spiritually proactive with the staff, members and community. Candidates will have a Bachelor’s degree and seminary training or advanced Biblical studies are preferred.
Lee’s Summit is becoming one of the busiest centers in the Kansas City metro region. Cultural, entertainment and educational opportunities are fifteen minutes away from this suburban area with a low cost of living.
I partner with Vanderbloemen Search Group, a retained executive search firm, to help churches find their key staff. I’m frequently helping large, fast-growing churches with a focus on reaching the unchurched. If your church needs assistance in this sort of search, feel free to contact me.
