Whether you are looking to slow down and enjoy life as an energetic and focused semi-retired part timer, or a young entrepreneur starting a new venture while simultaneously serving a church several days a week: we invite you to consider Immanuel Lutheran Church, Alice, Texas as the place of your next adventure.
Enjoy the south-central Texas climate with winters the way God intended them to be, gulf coast fishing and water sports, domestic and exotic wild game hunting, year-round golfing, and cultural events in nearby Corpus Christi. Visit the famed King Ranch. Walk with God in the beautiful desert wilderness of Lebh Shomea House of Prayer or the St. Mary & St Moses Abbey. Take advantage of some of the best housing prices anywhere (parsonage optional).
Immanuel Lutheran celebrates an active membership of 150 members with an average worship attendance of 70. Strategically situated in a community of 20,000, our vision “to be the most Christ-centered influence for the city of Alice and beyond” is both challenging and exciting. Knowing Christ, Living Christ, and Sharing Christ is the path we have chosen to fulfill the vision. Still, the challenges of honoring the rich traditional history of Immanuel’s past while worshiping and making disciples in culturally relevant ways are of a David and Goliath proportion. Are you ready for a challenge?
We are in search of a part time pastor that will partner with us to strengthen us in our vision and mission. We are praying for that one who has a passion for equipping the members of Immanuel, by the power of the Holy Spirit, to share Jesus through intentional “life on life” relationships. We also anticipate that thru the teaching of scripture in Bible study, the strength in preaching and delivering a meaningful message in a powerful worship setting, and seeking out opportunities for us to witness to the community and the world, we might joyfully and with excitement carry out Christ’s command in the Great Commission: to make disciples of all.
Both duties and compensation are negotiable. Please submit your resume to Brian Menking, Call Committee Chair, 840 CR 481, Alice, TX 78332 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
