Senior Pastor
Full-time, Exempt
Available Summer 2017

Peace Fellowship Church is a dynamic, non-denominational faith community located in northeast Washington D.C., east of the Anacostia River. The mission of the church is to develop disciples of Jesus Christ who love God and their neighbors in an urban environment that has traditionally been underserved. Fueled by the goods news of God’s coming kingdom, Peace Fellowship seeks to participate in God’s mission to reconcile humans to God and humans to one another. This conviction funds our life together as we strive to tend to the needs of the people of God, our neighborhood, and the marginalized through contextually relevant mission and discipleship. Started as a church plant in 2001, the church recently began an exciting partnership with a local public charter high school — complete with a modern gym — which not only serves as the host site for its Sunday services, but also encourages the congregation to participate in community youth events.
