Faith Center Foursquare Church is currently seeking the right individual who has a pastoral calling, leadership gifting, and Godly passion for the next Generation. We are a Church located in beautiful Eureka, CA, which lies on the northwest coast of California. Please see Lonely Planet’s review of the Redwood Coast, https://www.lonelyplanet.com/best-in-us, and check out our website, eurekafaithcenter.org, to learn more about our church. With God’s blessing, a Senior Pastor Team with a deep passion for God’s work, and a talented staff, we have seen steady growth over the last few years and on an average weekend we serve close to 1000 people on campus through three weekend services. The ministry is further expanded through our ability to live stream services through our app and online which reaches many more people who may be unable to physically attend. Our ministries to the next generation (Children, Youth, Young Adults) have seen strong pastoral leadership and steady growth as we have engaged volunteer teams who can meet the needs of so many families in our area. Our Tuesday night ministry to youth, “The Bridge”, averages close to 100 people each week. We are ready for what God has prepared as we continue to seek His will for our city, county, nation and worldwide.
