Journey Church, a vibrant and growing church of 250 located in beautiful Conway, NH, is seeking a Senior Pastor to lead and shepherd the congregation. Journey has a strong trajectory of building and growth! About 12 years ago, after many years of decline, we were faced with the decision to close or to re-plant. We chose the latter, and began the hard work of changing our culture and focusing Christ’s mission under a new Pastor. The church began to grow, and within a few years our facility was no longer able to hold us. We purchased property and began work on a beautiful new facility, which we moved into in 2017! Since then, the church has continued to grow and thrive, both within the body and in our impact on the community. We have a deep commitment to live our lives in and outside of the church as authentic followers of Jesus. We’re not perfect, but we are relentlessly pursuing a Holy God who is full of grace and mercy for those who will come to Him. We desire to show the world around us that Jesus is real, He is serious about lives, and He is seeking a relationship with anyone who will put their trust in Him alone.
Conway, New Hampshire is a beautiful, four-season vacation destination in the White Mountains and the major commercial and tourism center for this region, drawing people to the mountains for skiing, hiking, climbing and all types of outdoor activities.
