Thank you very much for your interest in the newly crafted position of Pastor of Formation for Mission.  We are honored by your interest and eager to interact with you.  It will be helpful to us if all communication would go to this address:

Three years ago Pillar re-established itself as a dual-affiliation congregation of the Christian Reformed Church in North America and the Reformed Church in America.  The re-establishment was a step towards a new life and mission the community here sensed God inviting us towards.  Another step in that direction has been acknowledging among ourselves that we seek to be less a “programmatic” church and more a “vocational” one.  Not that we don’t or won’t offer any programs but that we understand the gospel of Christ intersects the public arena most often when the people of the church are at work, or in parks, or at grocery stores and in neighborhoods. (For a recent summary of what we have discerned as a community, click HERE).   The position of Pastor of Formation for Mission is meant to help us live into this vision for our community.  We are eager for what it will mean for our life together and how it will effect the larger communities we are a part of.  

We are eager to hear from you.  We hope you find the website helpful in giving you a sense of the life and mission of Pillar and that you find what you’re looking for about the position under the pastoral opening link.
