About The Meeting House

The Meeting House is a church for people who aren’t into church.

On Sunday mornings we meet at 18 different locations across Ontario, & during the week at over 180 home churches.  Check out our website for more details: www.themeetinghouse.com

Overview

The Lead Pastor is the key point person at each of our Regional Sites, who stewards the overall mission & vision of The Meeting House in the local site context. The number of people connected to one of our sites can range from 200-800. The Lead Pastor’s primary responsibility is to lead & equip people in discipleship. At The Meeting House, we believe the primary vehicles we can use to fuel this process are home church & our Sunday morning services.

What does a Lead Pastor do?

  • Model what it means to be a disciple of Jesus
  • Equip & encourage leaders & volunteers in the site

  • Lead & engage the local site in our Transform goals of Grow, Care, Invite (see themeetinghouse.com)
  • Create energy, vision & momentum at the site
  • Provide upfront hosting on Sunday mornings & at other site-wide events
  • Execute key administration related to effective delivery of key programs & initiatives

Practically, how does a Lead Pastor spend his/her time?

  • Development of goals & plans for the site
  • Team & one-on-one meetings with home church Elders & Coordinators, focused first on discipleship & then on ministry delivery & execution

  • Input, insight & feedback on The Meeting House plans & programs
