Site Description

North Community is located in a beach town of 25,000. The church is truly a community reaching out to and caring for members and those beyond the immediate church family. Our members are very active in the community. The congregation has an average worship of 110, various ages with few 20 somethings, and encompasses many faith backgrounds. In the last few years we have experienced rapid growth in our Sunday school with an influx of new families. We have a new Youth Director who is building the program with much excitement from the community. We have had quite a number of field education students over the years and really enjoy being a teaching parish. Staffing includes full time Pastor, part time Youth Director, Sunday School Director, Choir Director, Secretary and Sexton.

Student Involvement

While we are willing to adjust to the gifts and interests of the student, student involvement generally occurs in worship leadership and preaching, occasional visitation, leadership of an adult education program or spirituality/prayer groups. We are focusing on expanding and enlivening our music program, updating our technology, and reflecting on our structure. If interested the student is welcome to participate in any of these areas.

Commitment to Educating Ministers

NCC values the role as a teaching parish, enjoying growth with the student as well as seeing growth in the student. The past seven students have been embraced, loved, encouraged and challenged at NCC. The call to be a teaching parish is a call that NCC celebrates and sees as an essential part of our mission.The church has a commitment to mission trips for both youth and adults. For five years there have been trips to Biloxi, MS to assist in Katrina recovery work. The seminary intern would certainly be welcome to join the youth on their trip, which is held shortly after school gets out in June or the adult trip which this year will be in September.

Special Considerations

The pastor will serve as supervisor. While we are a member of the United Church of Christ, that identity is relatively new to us. We were "affiliated" for a long time, but only officially voted to join in 2007. Learning about what it means to be UCC could be a joint effort -- in other words, the congregation might benefit from some adult education on being UCC and issues currently facing our denomination, which could be a joint effort of the pastor, the field ed student, and our named "UCC liaison".
