Work for Northminster

Church Description

Northminster Presbyterian Church in New Castle, PA is seeking to hire a ministry associate. In the last couple of years, Northminster has seen significant transition. Another local Presbyterian Church closed their doors and over 70 new members came to Northminster. This was an infusion of leadership and ideas. At the same time, our pastor of 24 years retired, and a new pastor was called at the beginning of 2018 who brought new energy and enthusiasm. Northminster is a church on the rise.
