The Orchard Church is served by a four-member elder team, a four-member trustee team, and a six-member deacon team. Our other ministries are led by dedicated volunteers.
Our search for a new pastor was initiated when our current pastor obeyed God’s call to accept a lead pastor position for a church in another state.
The Orchard Church is committed to sharing the Word with our communities, and to emphasizing personal and spiritual growth. Though we are small, we are mighty in the Lord, through our programs that share the gospel, and serve those around us in our daily lives, our community, and around the world.

He will also provide spiritual leadership and pastoral care to the congregation, and to the community, as a member of the Elder team.

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.
