Peace is a 53-year old congregation in the Western town of Holbrook (pop 5,000) on Arizona's high desert between three major Native American reservations: Navajo, Hopi, Apache. While a poor area economically, Holbrook is rich in historical, cultural and religious diversity.
Peace is a part of a thriving evangelical community which works together beautifully to do youth ministry (Youth For Christ), ministry to the homeless (Bread of Life Mission) and other joint ventures.
This is a small but growing and healthy congregation which is looking for pastoral leadership with vision, energy and a cooperative spirit to both continue the ministry trajectory that's been established and, possibly, set forth new ministry options.
While proud of our Lutheran heritage and theology, Peace is not a traditional Lutheran congregation in that we enjoy a variety of worship styles and see ourselves as part of the greater Christian community.
We want our pastor and spouse (if any) to reside in our community and be an active participant in community affairs.
