Our Vision/Mission Statement

Spring Hill Presbyterian Church is a community of people providing a place to gather and come into a relationship with God through Jesus Christ.  Loving one another as God loves us, we learn to forgive, accept and encourage each other.  Through our worship of God, we seek to deepen our faith and to discern His will.  We serve in teaching, providing example, and showing concern for others, according to God’s will.

Policy and Procedures Description of Pastor:


Service Title: Bi-vocational Pastor – on average 20 to 30 hrs./week


The Purpose of the Bi-vocational Pastor Position


The Pastor will serve, along with the Elders, as leader of our congregation by encouraging us to grow closer to Jesus Christ in our everyday lives, and to bear witness to the Good News of the Bible.  The Pastor will be head of staff, responsible for nurturing staff development, and will also be responsible for the spiritual life of the congregation, including worship, teaching, administration, and pastoral care.


The Qualifications of the Bi-vocational Pastor Position


We will be guided by God to call a pastor whom He has chosen to lead and serve with us.  We believe this pastor will have a joyful heart in the leadership of worship, conservative theological beliefs, as expressed in the essential tenants of ECO, and will easily profess faith in Jesus alone as Lord and Savior, as well as in the Bible as the infallible, inspired Word of God. This pastor will honor Spring Hill’s past and be excited about Spring Hill’s future.  Our pastor will love and pray for the church family and warmly accept the reciprocal support of members.  A sense of humor will be among the many tools this pastor will use to lead, teach, challenge and encourage us. 


We believe God has chosen for us a pastor whose engaging leadership style will inspire and organize us to become disciples for Jesus Christ in service to others.  This pastor will be warm, gracious and approachable, possess humble and compassionate listening skills, be effective in written and oral communication, and provide wise and spirit-filled counsel.
