Lead Pastor Search

Position: Lead Pastor, International Christian Fellowship (ICF) – Place: The city of Warsaw, Poland

We are currently accepting applications for the position of Lead Pastor at ICF. Qualified applicants must be strong leaders able to serve alongside rather than above others on the team. ICF has a strong purpose and vision to equip and train leaders and to plant churches in Warsaw and in other parts of the world as doors open.

Our church boasts people from over 30 nations and a dozen denominational backgrounds. Averaging between 140 and 170 people at our Sunday morning service, the congregation is dynamic as well as diverse. Like most international churches, we are made up of students, locals, business and embassy workers and their families. Each year we experience about 30% turnover so there are always new opportunities to explore and disciples to empower and release. We have our own rented facility and an excellent presence within the Christian community. While being independent, we are affiliated to churches within Poland.

To serve at ICF we require a candidate who has a high cultural intelligence, able to understand those of various backgrounds and beliefs, an ability to share authority and to grow and develop leaders. We thrive as a body of believers that share responsibilities and duties and together serve one another.

Warsaw is an international city with many foreigners and ex-pats living here. Quality education is a great draw for young people and a growing business center brings in talent from around the world. We estimate that there are between 40,000 and 60,000 English speakers within the city. We are looking for someone who can help us to connect and grow the church with these English speaking people, tap into the opportunities this presents to, while at the same time care for those who are already a part of the ICF flock.

We are asking for applicants to express their interest in the position before August 20, 2017. ICF has assembled a Search Committee responsible for identifying a short list of possible candidates. This short list will be contacted to begin a process of learning more about them and having them learn more about ICF in early September and a starting date no later than January 1, 2018.
