Silver Winds Church

Position Description

Silver Winds Church (SWC) is part of the Converge World Wide movement. It is organized under the Converge Great Lakes District (CGL) of which there are approximately 113 churches in Wisconsin and 12 churches in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan (UP).

This church is specifically located in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, on the north shore of Lake Michigan. Escanaba is the third largest city in the UP. Escanaba is located in what is known as ‘The Banana Belt’ due to the milder climates that are found here. The UP is known nationally for our thick and wild forests, cold and clean lakes (we are situated between 3 of the Great Lakes), and unique culture. Tourists flock in the summer and fall to experience waterfalls, rocky shorelines, fresh air, and miles of untouched woodlands.  Escanaba is situated on Little Bay de Noc which hosts Cabela’s Walleye tournaments. Perch, walleye, trout, salmon, bass, and a myriad of other fish are found in our lakes and rivers.  The area is full of animal life as well, with white tail deer, fox, rabbits, bear, turkeys, and several different birds sharing this land with us. Moose and wolf have taken hold and are increasing in numbers quickly. Though the area may not be an economic boomtown, we are known for our hard work ethic and kind spirits.

Escanaba does have its share of issues and struggles with sin. Drinking and drug use is on the rise. There are a high percentage of single parents and teen pregnancies. Suicide plagues our area, as does an increase in alcohol, drug, and domestic abuse. This area is seeing more single-parent homes led by men, and more behavioral and mental problems. We also have a growing gay and lesbian community. The number of non-profit and or social assistance programs is higher per capita than other communities this size.

The city has worked hard to put our community in position for industrial and population growth. Within the last year many new businesses have come to town, including a Meijer, Starbucks, Aldi’s, a microbrewery, and the most advanced deep-sea port in the Great Lakes. Smaller businesses have started to move into the downtown area, and with grants to revitalize the area, we have seen a new farmer’s market and a well-loved library and art center that hosts many community talks and classes.

Area religious groups include: Catholic, Lutheran, Methodist, Assembly of God, Baptist, Mormon, Jehovah Witness, and Unitarian Universalists to mention a few.

Basic demographics:  Population in 2014: 12,413 within the city limits, 37,544 in Delta County

Males: 5,729 (46.2%)              Females: 6,684 (53.8%)

Median age: 44.2 yrs.             Michigan Median age 39.7 yrs.

Est. median income (2015):    Escanaba $29,642                   MI: 51,084

Est. house or condo value (2015):      Escanaba: $91,779      MI: $137,500

Median rent in (2015): $529              http://www.city-data.com/city/Escanaba-Michigan.htm1#ixzz4bRqOuH5U

SWC was established in 2000 and has transitioned through three locations under one Pastor’s leadership during that time.  The heartbeat of SWC is a small group of believers who desire to have a strong family bond within our church, that gives us a sense of belonging and spiritual health which we want to give back to our families and our community. Our small group self-defines itself as a congregation for those who would not “fit” in the typical church fellowship; we feel comfortable with blue jeans and tee shirts or tie and suit. Our praise team uses a variety of instruments playing a mix of traditional hymns and contemporary praise songs.

SWC purchased its current location approximately 12 years ago and is in a land contract. The renovated building is formerly the neighborhood grocery store, with approximately 12,000 sq. ft. The space consists of a nursery, four classrooms and a large, open and inviting gathering/worship space with a capacity of around 100 people. The children’s ministry has a few young families regularly attending.

SWC is seeking an individual with strong Pastoral/leadership skills, which may include restructuring our current vision and leading us into the steps that will be needed to get there.

SWC seeks a Bible focused leader that loves God and His inerrant Word and can help us fall in love with Jesus. He must be capable of applying God’s word to heal broken believers and bringing the lost face-to-face with the Truth that will set them free to experience forgiveness and peace.

This individual needs an unshakable call to this ministry. Though we have many churches in our area, a large section of the public feels church is irrelevant to life in general. The church seems to be losing ground in our community, but SWC feels that God wants to do great things in demolishing strongholds that have had several decades to build.

SWC has a strong core group that tithes well above the national average, and are willing to step up and do what is needed for the cause of Christ and His church. We live in a community of around 13,000, with the majority that are unchurched, have left church, or are under churched; a conservative estimate would be 40 to 45 percent of the public.  An estimated 5,000 members of the public are members at an area church. We have a wide-open field to harvest.

Though we are small we will work hard to give our pastor the best financial package possible, with the understanding if it is not enough this individual may have to raise support or be bi-vocational until our church is large enough to fully support. We offer a church that fills a unique niche in the community, where there are hundreds maybe thousands of lost souls that are looking for someone to bring the Gospel to them. For an involved, passionate pastor there is an opportunity to create and implement a vision, provide strong leadership, develop and implement a program for teaching, mentor our elders and other potential leaders, and provide needed congregational care. This opportunity is in a rural area with friendly people, outstanding natural resources, and a relatively low cost of living.

Interested parties may forward their resumes to swcescanaba@gmail.com

Salary package will be given to final candidates. 

 

PASTORAL POSITION PAPER

  1. Sermon preparation and sermon articulation for Sunday and Special services.

  2. Provide vision and leadership to the congregation first and secondly to prepare leaders for ministry.

  3. Biblical counselor, to help those who struggle with life’s issues that seems to overwhelm people.

  4. Will need to have set office hours that fit Pastor’s schedule and with consideration to the congregation schedules.
