Job Opportunities

SLC Council and the Leadership Support Committee, in conjunction with pastoral leadership, have been working through the process of defining the job description for the Associate Pastor position. We arrived at the decision that the title of Community Life Pastor more accurately describes the role. 

The Community Life Pastor is a position listed at 32 hours per week. The distinctives of this position include an emphasis on congregational care, small groups and evangelism. You will note that many of the job details overlap between the Lead Pastor and the new Community Life Pastor. This is to be expected as we continue to build a team that supports the people of South Langley church to know and follow Jesus through relationships that equip the people, engage the city, and encounter God.

A search committee is being launched. Please be in prayer for these committee members as well as for the candidates who will present themselves for consideration. We ask the Lord for all he has for South Langley Church!
