WELCOME TO THE RESOURCES PAGE

The Disciple-making journey at Olive Grove Church starts with asking others to “join me” in following Jesus.

Discipleship is the process we use at Olive Grove Church to ground a follower of Jesus in the way of Jesus.  We start with the classic message from Jesus known as the Sermon on the mount.

Could God be calling you to Olive Grove Church?

We are OGC…

Olive Grove Church is a 100-member, 97 year old evangelical church located in the town of Nuevo in rural Riverside County in Southern California, and we are seeking God’s provision for our next Senior Pastor.

Our property includes a 100-seat sanctuary, church office, the Annex (multi-use facility) sitting on two acres, as well as 18 acres of undeveloped land nearby.  We currently have about 80 people attending worship on Sunday mornings.  Our worship style is contemporary, accompanied by guitars, drums and keyboard. The congregation is affiliated with the Missionary Church, Western Region.

Nuevo is a rural community, and most of its residents commute to their work. Major nearby residential developments are in the planning stages, so our area will experience significant growth in the coming years. Nuevo enjoys a Mediterranean climate with hot summers, sunny autumn and falls, and mild winters.  It has a small-town feel (July 4th Parade) with a population of 5000 but is nearby to Perris, Menifee and Hemet which offer a wide range of shopping, recreational, educational, and medical opportunities. Nuevo is also close to the mountains, deserts, beaches and major Southern California attractions.

We are seeking a senior pastor who has an authentic living, breathing, dynamic relationship with God.  That someone has a strong calling of God and is capable of bringing His presence home to our congregation.  Our PastorNext is someone who is in tune with the Holy Spirit, seeks and knows how to hear God’s voice, and practices personal spiritual disciplines.  He is a leader who desires to live out the Great Commission and the Great Commandment and is able to inspire others to join in the mission and vision of our church.  Our area is ripe for transformation and our new senior pastor should be gifted in creating a climate and environment where people grow spiritually into fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.  

We need a dynamic person who reflects the Biblical description of a spiritual leader with a servant’s heart.  PastorNext has highly effective communication skills and the ability to connect with people both from the pulpit as well as in person-to-person interactions.  Powerful preaching is highly valued here.  We seek Biblically based messages that are delivered in a way that challenges people to respond and grow in their faith. 

Our congregation has a wide range of ages and a children’s and youth ministry.  We are seeking a pastor who recognizes these young people as Christ’s future church and who shares in our love for them.  Our men’s and women’s ministries are actively striving to equip people with a real and growing relationship with Christ.  OGC has a real passion for Missions.  We support several long-term, overseas missionaries as well as church members on short-term missions trips. 

Our senior pastor will have a solid experience in leading a vibrant church through growth. We need a leader who can identify, recruit and develop leaders and staff.   PastorNext can articulate, communicate and implement a vision – all under the mantle of prayer and spiritual guidance.  His home life, with strong attention to family, should complement his church ministry life.  His personal life needs to be balanced – physically, mentally, and emotionally.  Our pastor will also have a warm and steady character, an obvious love for people, and a real and open nature.

Olive Grove Church is looking for a senior pastor.  Are you a man of integrity and a man of vision?  Has God blessed you with the gift to teach and inspire with His Word? Do you have a passion for families and children?  Can you picture God using you to lead a church through spiritual growth as well as through congregational growth?  Can you imagine an entire community being transformed by the ministry of a church which believes in the power and purpose of God?

As you read through this material, please join us in asking God for His direction.  As you open your heart and mind, could God be calling you to Olive Grove Church?
