“The church has a rich history, with its roots in the pre-Civil War era ‘underground railroad,” said Paul Allen, Vice President of FaithSearch. Allen will be leading the search effort along with Sally Morgenthaler, another Vice President in the firm’s Ministry Division.
The current facility, completed in 1951, features the church’s trademark Spire and is home to more than 650 members. The New England-style church is situated in a city off 50,000 in the hills of North Central Ohio. The congregation is committed to service and offers many outreach opportunities throughout to make a positive impact with people in their community and across the world.
First Congregational Church is known for its rich musical program. Members of the choir are often joined by members of the Mansfield Symphony Choir, the Mansfield Symphony and other Mansfield-area performing groups.
“The church is expanding its vision to meet future challenges and seeks a senior minister to help fulfill that vision,” said Allen. “They are seeking one who can lead a religiously diverse congregation that values new ideas and modern scholarship delivered through thought provoking sermons and spiritual programs.”
