Senior Pastor

Cornerstone Bible Church

Platte, South Dakota

Full Time

Position Overview

Cornerstone Bible Church is seeking a full-time senior pastor, teacher, and spiritually mature leader to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ, to rightfully divide the word of truth, to engage in pastoral care ministries, have a servant’s heart, and to provide leadership in church life.


Church Summary

Cornerstone Bible Church is a small church in rural South Dakota. Platte is a very agriculture-based town with approximately 1,300 people. It is not far from the Missouri River so the summers are very busy.

On your average Sunday morning there are 11 middle-aged married couples along with 35 children. We meet every Sunday morning with occasional mid-week prayer meetings. We currently are without a pastor so we have been doing a variety of things on Sunday mornings. We have guest pastors speak, a few of our members will give the sermon, or we watch online videos of some of our favorite pastors. For praise and worship, we have two pianist who play for us and lead us in music. Our pianist is also our church secretary. As a church body we help support two missionaries a month. We also have no financial debt and own our church building.

The church uses an eldership form of government. Ideally it is composed of a pastor, elders, and deacons answerable to the congregation. Although elders act jointly in collective leadership and share equal authority and responsibility, the pastor is recognized as “first among equals”.
