Church of the Nazarene Job Board - Positions by Category: CaliforniaPosted by: Michael Palmer
Posted date: Feb-28-2018
Location: Napa, California
Living Vine Church is a congregation rooted in the heart of the Napa Valley in Northern California. Napa is a city of 77 thousand residents, which allows it to feel smaller and quieter than other Bay Area cities without sacrificing culture and outdoor opportunities. Within minutes of the church reside some of the best food, hiking, art and fishing in the country. Napa is also just hour and a half from the heart of San Francisco, an hour an from the beach and two hours from the mountains. It truly is a place which has it all.
As a church, Living Vine has spent the past several years intentionally working to discover what it looks like to create a discipling culture while living out Christ’s mission on earth. This has led to both substantial investment in spiritual formation and discipleship as well as the formation of partnerships with local leaders establishing a non-profit designed to provide needy families with nutritious food. Our congregation also has relationships with a local LGBTQ non-profit, a non-profit which focuses on emancipated foster care youth and recently has made connections to immigration law offices which specialize in undocumented immigrants find solutions to the quickly changing world around them. We have, in a very literal sense, become a church which is safe for all.
This position is part-time (10-15 hrs a week), housing provided. They will also need to be bi-vocational.
