Lead Pastor, Aletheia Ministries, Walnut Creek, CA

Aletheia Ministries has an opening for a full-time Lead Pastor position. We are located in Walnut Creek, California and are part of Contra Costa United Methodist Church (CCUMC). The Lead Pastor position will be leading and developing Aletheia Ministries, a multi-cultural community of young professionals.

Who We Are

“God is spirit, and those who worship God must worship in spirit and in truth.” (John 4:24)

Aletheia is a Greek word commonly translated as: truth. While our aim is to worship faithfully in truth, our community does not presume to know the entire truth. Desiring to expand our hearts and minds to encounter God’s love and wisdom, we no longer simply define truth as a noun, but also as a verb: an act of opening ourselves beyond our walls. We seek the truths of God in our neighbor, especially the voiceless and oppressed, and wherever the Spirit is present.
