Search for Associate Minister

Christ Community Reformed Church in Clifton Park, New York, is looking for a second full-time, ordained and installed minister. We seek an energetic, committed and creative person with deep faith, who embraces practices and values by which CCRC lives. These include: liturgical, structured worship service, and a welcoming congregation which celebrates diversity.

Our Covenant

To the Glory of the Living God, Triune and loving, we unite as God’s willing servants to live the confession: Jesus Christ is Lord, there is no other faith foundation than His love and life.

It shall be our aim to share the love of Christ by bringing:

  • Joy to little children
  • High ideals to youth
  • Direction to young adults
  • Inspiration and fellowship to men and women in the midst of life
  • Comfort and support to those in life’s later years

Our fellowship welcomes all persons seeking to follow Jesus Christ and willing to grow
in our common purpose to do justly, love kindness, and walk humbly with our God. It is our ideal to move in the upward call of God in Jesus. Being thus led by the Holy Spirit, we strive to serve the world we touch, recognizing each person as a child of God.

Full-time Ordained Installed Associate

The Associate Minister embodies our church values: theology and faith, honesty, approachability, strong work ethic, effective preaching, and the ability to relate to our youth. He or she will conduct worship, lead youth and children, and oversee current cross-generational programs and help us identify and develop more opportunities to integrate all generations in our community. The Associate Minister in partnership with the Senior Minister will determine responsibilities for our Elementary and High School youth Groups.

We seek an individual with the ability to nurture relationships across generational lines; and to recruit, train, equip and support strong lay leadership for ministry. The candidate will be involved in all aspects of ministry with a particular focus on providing theological guidance and pastoral care to families and youth. We seek a person who will bring vigor, excitement, and expertise to a ministry for families, young adults, youth and children. Responsibility for our ongoing “Friends in Faith” program, which partners a caring adult with a youth, attempting to encourage cross-generational support and encouragement; and our “Sticky Faith” program, which involves all generations in all aspects of worship and church life, including committee memberships, hopefully “sticking” youth to their
faith as they grow will be a key.
