St. James Lutheran Church of Holland, Indiana is currently seeking a Spirit-filled pastor to lead our growing congregation.
We seek a pastor whose beliefs and ideals align with our mission statement, which states:
With God’s Love and Guidance and consistent study of Holy Scripture, which we believe to be God’s true Word in its entirety, St James will transform lives by encouraging each other in Spiritual Growth, Worship, and Outreach to those around us both saved and lost.
We strive to be a Christ centered community where all people are welcomed, cared for, loved, and involved in spreading God’s Word and serving.
Along with a commitment to our mission statement, the members of St. James currently participate in many different ministry and worship opportunities. These include:
- Saturday night and Sunday morning worship services
- Sunday morning discipleship classes for all ages
- Fellowship opportunities (Annual picnic, women’s Circle, Advent program, Thanksgiving dinner)
- Youth Programs (Affirmation of Baptism, Wednesday Kids for Christ, Lutheran Youth Group, VBS)
- Choirs for all ages
- Men and Women Softball Leagues
- WOW (Women of the Word)
- And many more opportunities
St. James is in the southern part of Indiana in the community of Holland. Along with St. James, Holland is home to three more churches of different denominations. The churches work together to support the community, reach those who are searching, minister to the community youth, and enjoy fellowship together. Other area attractions include Holland Elementary School, which is within walking distance of the church, a faith based childcare center, a beautiful park, the town commons, and several small family-owned businesses. Holland is a community built on family values, hard work, and faith. Therefore, an individual who enjoys being an active member of the community, is willing to work with other clergy to advance God’s Kingdom, can communicate and reach today’s youth, and can find innovative ways to lead and shepherd our congregation would be a great fit for the members of St. James.
