Bi-vocational Pastor

New Life Chapel is looking for a Bi-vocational Pastor. We are a rural church in Jackson County, Michigan surrounded by woods, corn, wheat and soybean fields. We are centrally located between three small but growing communities. Our current pastor retired on 6/1/22 due to health concerns. We are a small (less than twenty in Sunday attendance) congregation, having had the vast majority of our members either move out of the area or go be with the Lord.

We are looking for someone who can relate to the younger generations and transform our church into one that can reach these with the gospel. Admittedly we cannot pay much right now, but our church building is completely equipped with everything an energetic pastoral candidate would need to lead us into the next state of revitalization. We have been a traditional church for twenty two years, but are open to the kinds of changes that a new pastor could use to draw a younger crowd.

We are looking for a leader that can cast a strong vision and lead us to change our community for the glory of God. We ask that his Christian character and qualifications meet the biblical standards according to 1 Tim. 3:1-7, Titus 1:5-9 and 1 Peter 5:1-4 and following the Southern Baptist Faith and Message. We ask that he be prepared to live in close proximity to our community, to lead in preaching, teaching, visitation as needed, baptisms, funerals, weddings, the administering of the ordinances, and counseling as necessary.

This is a great opportunity for God's man to shape and mold a church for today to reach the lost around us in a contemporary way. For those interested, you may respond here; e-mail us at; mail us at PO Box 725, Michigan Center, Mi. 49254; or call 517-262-4924. You can check out the church on our Facebook Page at
