High Level Evangelical Church
Type of Employment
The Role: High Level Evangelical Church (HLEC) is looking for a Lead Pastor with a shepherd’s heart. This man will model a strong walk with Christ, a clear calling to pastoral ministry, and under the guidance of the Holy Spirit and the board, will lead the church to a closer and deeper relationship with God. He will do this through solid Bible-based teaching and preaching that has application at all levels of maturity. The Lead Pastor will also guide the church by demonstrating the love of God through his own servant leadership and shepherd care for those around him. He will assist the board in casting vision for the future, in training and discipling leaders, as well as demonstrate a strong commitment to prayer, and actively promote reaching out to the lost with the gospel. Though this position requires a self-starter with a strong work ethic, we desire our pastor to maintain a healthy balance of ministry and family life.
Our Church: We are a multi-generational congregation with a weekly attendance of about 200. In addition to our weekly worship services, we have many active ministry teams including women’s ministry, Christian education (Sunday School) and youth. Our church family is involved in community support, as well as local and global missions. Effective ministry to the many young families who attend our church is a high priority for us. We have a heart for truth and strive to be a gospel-centred church that shares Christ’s transforming power with those around us. HLEC is also a part of the Evangelical Free Church of Canada and our mission is We love because He first loved us. Worshiping, caring, teaching, reaching, serving - Christ in All.

We are blessed to enjoy local recreation such as golf, an indoor pool, parks and a splash-park, basketball and tennis courts, baseball fields, indoor and outdoor ice-rinks, and local markets and events. There are many opportunities to get involved in the local community in addition to enjoying God’s great outdoors with camping, hunting and fishing, and nearby trails for snowmobiling and cross-country skiing.
