Pastor Andrew VanDerLinden

Community church is a vibrant church with the following qualities:

Growing:  Community church is growing.  We currently have two locations (Mount Pocono campus and East Stroudsburg campus).  The church has an average combined attendance of over 1,300 weekly regular attendees.  The children’s ministry averages between 200 and 250 kids a week (birth through 5th grade).

Proven leadership:  Community Church’s senior pastor started the church in 2003.  Pastor David Crosby is very engaged in community affairs, serves on key committees in our city, and has a strong focus on community outreach.  Pastor Crosby is an excellent leader who respects innovation, supports his staff, and helps them grow both as individuals and as staff pastors.

Amazing facilities:  Community Church enjoys a seven-year-old facility with a 700-seat auditorium, atrium, dedicated children’s space, administrative space, café, meeting rooms, and video studio.  The facilities have a modern design and look more like a performing arts center than a church.

Highly resourced: Community Church is prepared to provide a good salary that is commensurate with experience, creativity, and an ability to mobilize laity.  The church also provides financial support to the ministry, the best technology, and personal mobility for work devices.

Deep bench:  Community Church has a highly collaborative team approach where staff focuses on key areas and yet overlap in team initiatives.  The present full-time staff consists of a lead pastor, executive pastor, youth pastor, associate/groups pastor, campus pastor over our second location, teaching pastor / college site director, campus admin, music director, worship pastor, bookkeeper and a facilities manager.  Four of the Community Church pastoral staff have worked in churches over 4,000.

School of ministry:  In the summer of 2018 Community church will launch its extension site, a partnership with the fastest growing Christian school, Southeastern University.  This will be an opportunity to train the next generation in ministry.

Exciting area: The Poconos is a great area to live.  There are lots of things to do, including outdoor recreation, skiing, three indoor water parks, the Pocono Speedway and the Poconos are less than 100 miles from NYC and Philadelphia.

However, we feel there is one piece missing:  a dynamic children’s pastor!  That is why we are looking for a qualified children’s pastor capable of creating an exciting Children’s Ministry, growing volunteers, reaching kids in the community, and working in a fast-paced team environment.
