Temporary Supply Pastor Needed - United Church of Faith, Keota, IA

The United Church of Faith in Keota, Iowa is searching to fill a Part-time (estimated 18 hours per week) Temporary Pastor position.  Keota is a town of 1000 people approx. 45 miles SW of Iowa City.  The UCF is a congregation of God’s people and we will always find ourselves adapting to changing dynamics of a rural community.  This is evidenced by the merging of Baptist, Christian, Methodist and Presbyterian congregations within the last 80 years as God has continually found ways for us to work together.  Relationships and worship have provided the foundation upon which our church community has and will continue to prevail.  Our community has been blessed with a good school system, good businesses, fire department, and library. 

We desire the following in candidates

  • A pastor who has extensive knowledge of the word of God that is communicated skillfully through sermons, teaching, church functions and to the community.
  • Plan and conduct worship services and coordinate with the church secretary in preparation of the weekly bulletin.
  • Administer the Sacrament of Communion and Baptism.
  • Support special events (weddings, funerals, etc.)
  • Our ideal pastor will be a person skilled in connecting with members of the congregation as well as those who do not know the Lord in our community.
  • Provide pastoral care as needed and your time allows.
  • Provide input and support for the youth activities.

The salary is negotiable dependent on qualifications and experience.  A manse, which is a 3 bedroom brick home with full basement located 1 block from the church, will be included in the package.  A mileage budget will be provided.

If you have interest please contact Duane Sprouse at 319-461-5611 or Duane Durst at 641-919-7895 for more information.  The church website is www.keotaucf.org.
