Mount Olympus Presbyterian Church – Senior Pastor

The Pastor Nominating Committee of Mount Olympus Presbyterian Church in Salt Lake City Utah is seeking applicants for the position of Senior Pastor/Head of Staff. The position became vacant in 2018 when our pastor, Rev. Philip Hughes left after 14 years.

The Pastor will motivate and lead Mount Olympus Presbyterian Church (MOPC) as we seek to grow into the church God wants us to be, challenging us to grow through Bible-based teaching, and guiding us to seek God’s direction for this growth. The Pastor will act as the architect of worship and an influencer for transformation, preaching the Gospel, teaching scripture, and modeling key characteristics of Jesus (humility, forgiveness, encouragement, truth-telling, prayerfulness, and listening to the Holy Spirit), inspiring others by example to live as disciples of Christ.

The Pastor will lead and preach at Sunday morning services (8:30 and 11), and teach the Bible as the dynamic, transforming, authoritative Word of God. The Pastor will help the congregation envision their mission and ministry to each other and the world through the recognition, development, and commitment of their unique spiritual gifts given by the Holy Spirit. This will involve guiding members in becoming disciples of Christ and developing a biblically based community of faith devoted to Jesus through prayer, Bible study, and ministry to the world in his name. The Pastor will provide direct care for the congregation through counseling and prayer, as well as coordinate care through staff, Deacons, Stephen Ministers, and other lay leaders.
