    Description:

    We are looking for a LCMC certified full time or near full time Pastor to serve our three point parish located in rural southwestern Wisconsin, one hour south of La Crosse.  We joined the LCMC on July 18, 2010, after leaving the ELCA.

    We are looking for a candidate who is based strongly in the Word of God and can work effectively with youth and adult ministries.  We desire a pastor who can minister to parish members as well as the surrounding community as a whole.  The successful candidate will also visit shut-ins and those hospitalized.

    There are two services each Sunday with Sunday School between services.   The average attendance is 100 total per Sunday.  The churches are located within a 15 mile radius.

    A parsonage is available in a rural setting.

    We have been without a full time pastor since January 2018. We have continued with Sunday worship services utilizing pulpit supply and lay speakers. 

    After prayerful consideration, if you are interested in the position, please submit your LCMC resume to the above address by March 1, 2019.

    The position will be open until filled.
