Welcoming a new Pastor

Dear ECC Community,

It’s with much gratitude and excitement that we are announcing that the Elders have extended an offer to Ken Pierce to come serve with us as our Pastor, and he has enthusiastically accepted this call. Thank you to the many who spoke into this process and supported it with prayer. Ken will begin working at ECC at the start of May and we continue to value your prayers for him and Aisyah as they say farewell to their current church community, and for us as we prepare to welcome them in. Looking forward to the journey ahead. 

With thanks,

The Elders at ECC

ECC is looking for a Pastor!

ECC has been going through a season of intentional transitional ministry and now is extremely pleased to be able to welcome a Lead Pastor to come alongside our Elders and lead with us as we seek to continue to live out the Lords calling for our community church in Steveston. 

The full job profile can be found at: pastorsearch.ca or the PDF available for download HERE.

We would love to hear from you if you are interested in the role. Questions and applications can be sent to: search@myecc.ca

Two Key Documents

We are pleased to present to you two key documents for your final review. Thank You to the many who have provided feedback to help get them to this place. We have worked hard to discern, include and clarify the ideas around these components of ECC’s values and hope you find the documents useful.

We consider these documents to be about 95% complete for the purposes of helping us get to the place of searching and ultimately hiring a new pastor. The goals with these documents are

  1. To gain alignment at a high level of the Pastor / Elder relationship

  2. To build clarity around the value of the “Priesthood of All Believers.”

Ultimately, these docs will help give any prospective candidate a sense of what type of community we are and what type of staff member we are looking for.  

Please note, a separate (and important) future task is to use these documents to help inspire and form an updated Profile, visitors documents and other components that articulate “who we are.” Those will come at a later date.

After you have read these, if you believe there are parts that are still unclear please email the elders (elders@myecc.ca) with your comments by June 27th. 

In broad strokes, the next steps in this process look as follows:

  1. Further clarify anything from these documents if needed

  2. Gather feedback from the survey (launched last week) to inform the job description

  3. Propose a draft Job Description for community feedback

  4. Nominate a search team with “mandate” (role of search team) for community consideration

  5. Search Team orientation

  6. Launch the search 

Following the launch we would like to facilitate as soon as possible conversations around KRA 2 (community / family dynamic). This will be added in to aid the search committee.

Please see attached for the two documents and again, thank you for your active participation in this process.



Administrator Position

We are looking for a self motivated, detail orientated follower of Christ to join us as our church administrator. This is a key position for our small community church that requires a commitment to supporting and working alongside our many volunteers and leaders, a strong work ethic and demonstrated communication, interpersonal and organization skills.

If this is you download the job posting HERE and consider whether you should apply.

If this is not you, but you know of someone for whom this would be perfect for - give them a nudge our way.
