Second Congregational Church UCC
Bennington, VT
Application deadline is July 31, 2017

We are a vital, progressive, Open and Affirming, Green Justice church, committed to mission, community involvement, social justice, and the environment. We are seeking a pastor who is a good communicator, a prophetic preacher, and is proficient in the use of social media. We fully embrace new ideas for worship, music, and outreach. We have participated in the Next Level program which led to growth and significant changes to our music program and governance structure. To avoid losing momentum in these changes we want to hire a full-time senior pastor before the retirement of our current pastor.
