St. James Charlotte / St. Paul Cooper Hill
2800 Charlotte Church Road
Owensville, MO 65066



Posted: Apr 30, 2024

Application Deadline: Oct 27, 2024


MISSOURI- St. James, Charlotte and St. Paul’s of Cooper Hill are seeking a full-time pastor. We are open to candidates with the qualities needed to meet the needs of our congregations in rural Missouri, located about an hour west of St. Louis, or an hour east of Jefferson City.


We are two smaller rural churches in search of a settled pastor. We are in a livestock and agriculture area. Combined worship numbers on a typical Lord’s Day is about 70. We are located in a conservative and lower cost of living area. Our lives tend to revolve around the church and church family. We left the United Church of Christ in 2023. Both congregations experienced growth spurts with younger families of late and we are looking for someone who can minister to people of all ages. We offer a competitive salary, benefits, housing allowance, and ample family time according to our previous and interim pastor. 

We are looking for a pastor who is Covenantal in theology and believes:

1)      The Bible is inspired by God and the sole and infallible guide to faith and life

2)      In the Trinity – Father, Son and Holy Spirit

3)      Jesus Christ as the world’s sole Savior, Redeemer and Lord. His atonement was sufficient for all who believe. 

4)      In two Sacraments: Holy Communion and Baptism. On Baptism, we practice infant baptism but also provide for baptism of adults. The mode of baptism is sprinkling rather than immersion, although we recognize the validity of immersion.

5)      Christians are saved by grace through faith in Christ

6)      In the sanctity of life 

7)      Marriage is between a man and woman

8)      Confirmation is an opportunity to lead our young ones to Christ
