Employment Opportunities

Christ Redeemer Church is a 20-year-old congregation of about 400 people, located in Hanover, NH, right at the doorstep of the Ivy League institutions of Dartmouth College and Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. CRC’s vision is to be a church that is formed and driven by the gospel, and so, is missional, both in our local context – as seen in our resourcing, planting, and revitalizing work in places such as New London and Quechee – but also in our global outreach. Captivated by our biblical and Reformational heritage, we have found that the gospel of Jesus Christ is always bigger, deeper and more counter-intuitive than we tend to think—and so way more transformational (Rm 1:16). The gospel is not only our message, but also our method. When this gospel is faithfully proclaimed, we believe that the chief fruit is the establishment and nurture of a gracious, holy and loving community (i.e. the church, see Mt 5:14-16, Jn 13:34-35, Eph 2-5 & 1 Jn 3:23) that, as a community, is a witness to the watching world (Jn 17:20-21).
