First Congregational Church, Stamford, CT
About First Congregational Church and the Lead Pastor Position:
First Congregational Church is located in Stamford, Connecticut between New York City and New Haven, CT. Since its beginnings, FCC has worked to expand the reach of social justice and lift up the marginalized. FCC now stands at a crossroads.

Moving forward, FCC will need the steady, expert help of a trained restart pastor. This leader’s primary task will be to lead FCC through restart into a relational, 21st century ministry within urban Stamford and the surrounding area. Related tasks include development of an organic leadership structure, establishing tiers of lay pastoral care providers, leveraging partnerships with care-giving organizations in Stamford, re-branding and expanding FCC’s internet presence, supervising staff, preaching, pastoral care, and supervising an experienced financial management team. This is a permanent position, not an interim.
