SOLO PASTOR Edinburg Road Chapel C&MA Mercerville, NJ Looking for a senior pastor who can lead our congregation which is a family-oriented, close-knit, group of believers who truly enjoy serving together in love and Truth. Visitors often say they can feel the love we share in our church body. Our culture is very non-judgmental – we openly acknowledge the sins we are battling in our own lives and know none of us are above sin and temptation. We have a heart for the broken and lost, and we welcome through our doors individuals dealing with any form of sin or bondage. We have several attendees who have overcome addictions, and it is not uncommon for someone struggling with an addiction to walk through our doors on a Sunday morning or at other church gatherings. Our total membership roll is 71 people. We cross-age, education, ethnic, and economic groups, however, most of our congregation is of the Caucasian, blue collar working class with an average age of 50+ years old. Our congregation draws primarily from Hamilton Township and the surrounding towns/cities of Mercer County. Hamilton Township directly borders the New Jersey State Capital of Trenton. Although Hamilton Township is considered part of the New York metropolitan area, it also borders the Philadelphia metropolitan area. One can easily get to either city by train, bus, or car within an hour. The “Jersey Shore” is also less than an hour away. Major state highways and routes are within minutes of the township. According to 2016 census data, Hamilton Township has a population of 88,410, making it one of the largest municipalities in New Jersey. Hamilton Township residents range from wealthy to impoverished. The average age of residents is 41 and the majority of the population is Caucasian.
