Seeking Pastor with a Missionary’s Heart in Guam

The Lutheran Church of Guam is a dynamic, multicultural congregation in the Western Pacific Ocean.  Begun as a Lutheran Servicemen’s Center in the early 1960s, the congregation still ministers to military personnel but now embraces a wide variety of Micronesian, Asian and international believers. One of our most significant ministries is our Tender Shepherd Preschool, which provides quality Christian education to 50 preschoolers.  Our worship life is strong with a cadre of trained lay pastors providing leadership during this pastoral vacancy and ready to assist our next pastor.  Our music ministry is also strong.  Our church is located right on the beach and the parsonage, which is on the second story above the sanctuary, enjoys the same beautiful ocean view.  We are looking for a pastor with a missionary’s heart, able to live and proclaim the Gospel to a diverse population.  Someone interested in an interim position, with the possibility of extending to a long-term situation, is welcome to apply, as well.
