First Presbyterian Church
Hanford, California


Church Description:
First Presbyterian is a multi-generational church that has been located in the heart of downtown Hanford since the 1870s. Hanford serves as the county seat, is located about 15 miles from Naval Air Station Lemoore and our congregation welcomes many military families. In 2019 our pastor of 15 years suffered a heart attack and elected to retire. In November of 2020 a new pastor was hired, but he was tragically killed in a car accident after only 3 months with us. Despite these challenges, our church members are eager and excited to welcome a new pastor who will guide our fellowship of people brought together through God's prevenient grace to grow closer to God.

Position Description:
Lead Pastor who will provide spiritual, pastoral and administrative leadership for the congregation and staff. Work in conjunction with the Session in keeping with the stated purpose, mission, and vision of First Presbyterian Church Hanford. Help the congregation fulfill its mission and purpose by providing primary leadership in the areas of preaching, teaching, worship, prayer, and pastoral care.
