Harmony Road Baptist Church is looking for a new pastor to join our pastoral team.
Overview of Church and Community
Harmony Road Baptist Church (HRBC) is a small church located at Harmony Road and Taylor Street, just north of the 401 in Oshawa, Ontario. HRBC has, over the past several decades, remained a Bible-believing, Bible-preaching church that aims to engage our family, our community and the world with God’s Word, in God’s love.
Recently, Pastor Rob, after 17 years of service at HRBC, retired from full time ministry. We are looking for another pastor to expand our pastoral team, which now consists of one pastor, Pastor Dave. This new pastor would work alongside Pastor Dave, who has been ministering at HRBC for approximately 20 years.
HRBC is at a crossroads. As our church continues to reopen ministries shut down by the pandemic, we also anticipate the completion of a new housing development across the street which holds the potential for future ministry opportunities. We are looking for a pastor with vision who can, as part of the pastoral team, with God's leadership, help guide HRBC into the future.
