About Hope Community Church

Hope Community Church is affiliated with the Evangelical Free Church of America.  We are committed to Jesus Christ, the gospel and one another.  The Church gathers for worship on Sunday mornings in a beautiful facility with two primary goals: Christ-centered worship and Bible-centered teaching. Our Church averages 275 in attendance with about 200 members. As an established Church, we are able to enjoy the stability of our community yet continually strive to further the kingdom.


We are a Church amid some minor staff transitions. Our youth pastor became an associate pastor last fall and has taken on responsibilities beyond the realm of youth ministry. At the same time, our worship leader left to become an associate pastor at another Church in Washington. We desire to call an Associate Pastor of Youth and Worship to step into these opportunities and share the vision of the Church and help lead us into greater health.


A calling to pastoral ministry

A love for students

An ability to lead the congregation in worship

Seminary training preferred

A heart for the gospel


What we want in an Associate Pastor of Youth and Worship

We are looking for a full-time associate pastor who will work closely alongside our current associate pastor in leading our youth and worship ministries. Both ministries are relatively healthy right now, but as we adapt amid the ongoing age of Covid, strong Godly leadership is needed. Our youth ministry currently oversees 40+ students with an average attendance of about 30 students between both high school and middle school. We currently rely on volunteers to lead worship Sunday morning and seek to have someone who can more succinctly lead this ministry. Please expect to devote 75% of your energy to youth and 25% to the worship ministry.
