Dear Prospective Applicant, 

Thank you for your consideration in applying for the full-time “Executive Director” position at First CRC in Hanford, California. 

Established more than 100 years ago, First CRC is a living testament to the steadfast loving-kindness of our covenant keeping God. At First you will meet a community of people from all walks of life; all of us sinners who have been saved by the grace of God. We are a worshipping community of approximately 450 people with an average morning attendance of 245. We strive to worship corporately in a way that is God glorifying, Christ-centered, and community driven. Each day we aspire to be a deeply rooted community of faith, building redemptive relationships in an ever-growing community. Here you will discover that new members come through our doors along different routes. For some, membership is an outcome of their adult conversion to Christianity. Still others come to the church through transfer from another Church. And still others have grown up in this congregation their entire lives and are delighted to call this place ‘home.’ We are quick to give God all the praise for the variety of ways in which He directs our paths and draws us together. 

Our Vision (i.e. our statement of a desired future) here at First is “We see everyone intentionally building caring relationships with one another and with the unchurched and unbelieving for the sake of the Kingdom of God.” 

Our Mission is to glorify God by making "More and Better Disciples."

We envision our new Executive Director to join us in that vision by exhibiting a deep love for God and His people, an eagerness to share in the mission and vision of our congregation, and the hunger, qualities, and competencies detailed in our job description. After some time in prayer you think the Lord is leading you to apply, please do!

Justin Carruthers – Lead Pastor
