Hillside Wesleyan Church (Posted 2/16/2017)

Hillside Wesleyan Church in Olean, NY is prayerfully seeking a Senior Pastor who will lead them to bring the transforming power of the gospel to their city. The congregation is multi-generational, including eight infants less than one year of age all the way to prayer warriors in their nineties. Located in a residential neighborhood, Hillside has been working to impact their community in several ways, including community service projects, interaction with the local schools and offering an alternate worship service on Thursday evenings.  They also have a strong and growing interest in supporting global missions.  They are looking for a relational, authentic pastor who is willing to learn and grow with the church.

Hillside Wesleyan is one of 36 churches in the Western New York District and there are 8-10 other Wesleyan Churches within 30-45 minutes from the church.  The average worship attendance is 80 (up 10 from 1 year ago).  Small Group Participation ranges from 45-55. Sunday School attendance is 25. Giving is also up from a year ago. The church currently has an assistant pastor (ordained, bi-vocational) and a volunteer worship leader who is pursuing ordination.

The church recently paid off its last remaining debt (for a new roof) – a challenge which was rewarded by the pastor dying his hair blue (purely voluntary) and celebrated in the local paper.  The church offers their pastor a full-time salary package and a parsonage.

Olean is located 1½ hours from Buffalo and 45 minutes from Houghton College.  With a population of 14,000, Olean is the largest city in Cattaraugus County and is one of the principal cities of the Southern Tier region of New York State. In the broader population of the 14760 Zip Code, the population is 18,775.  The city is struggling economically with much of the region, which presents challenges to ministry, but also some tremendous opportunities.
