Pastor Search

Dear Pastor,

Heliopolis Community Church is a vibrant and active inter-denominational international English-language community of faith—we rejoice at how God has sustained us and grown our congregation over these past three decades. As a community, we value Biblical preaching and teaching, prayer and worship, and many of us are deeply invested in ministries in the church and in the broader society.

We believe God will provide us with a pastor with similar values, who can sign the same lifestyle covenant as the rest of our leadership, who has his own strong sense of calling to shepherd this congregation as we seek to serve the people of Cairo and Egypt, and who is as interactive and compassionate with people as he is gifted with the authority and grace to bring God’s Word, and to encourage and empower others to share in preaching. This position will be open in May of 2015, and we hope to have a pastor in place sometime in the summer of 2015.

If this description of us and of the pastor we are searching for resonates with you, we invite you to complete the simple questionnaire our pastoral search committee has prepared. Your answers will give us an indication of your interest in the position, and help us learn a little about each other. Along with the completed questionnaire, we would like you to email us your current resume/CV, and an attachment of an audio-file, or a link to a sermon you have preached recently and recorded. Everything you provide us with here will be prayerfully considered, and we will respond to you as soon as we are able to.

Although we will not request further information from every person who responds, we will do our best to be in touch with everyone who shows interest, and we do plan to continue the process with candidates in whom we see a good potential fit. We hope that you will be one of those people, and that you too are approaching us with prayers for discernment and wisdom.

Thank you for the time you’ve taken here—may God bless us richly in the good he has planned for us!

In the grace and peace of our Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus,
