Pastoral Position Open


Pastoral Position Open

Dalton Assembly of God (9745 State Highway 408, Dalton, New York 14836) is presently accepting resumes for a Pastoral position.

The church is located in a beautiful rural area between the hamlet of Dalton and the Village of Nunda on State Route 408. The area has a rich heritage in Native America history and its name, Nunda, loosely translated means ‘where the valley meets the hills’ reveals a rich pastoral setting. Further, Nunda is only about 7-10 minutes away from the southern entrance to USA’s voted number one state park, Letchworth State Park (“The Grand Canyon of the East”). While situated in a rural area, the town (Dalton-Nunda, population 1600) has relative access to neighboring communities, e.g., Dansville (15 miles due East, population 4450), Geneseo (County seat, 18 miles NNE, population 10,700), and New York’s third most populated city, Rochester, New York (50 miles N via Interstate 390). The breakdown of Nunda’s population (population 1600) demographics are: under 18 years of age-20%; ages 19-64-53% and 65 years of age and older-27%.

While the area supports a strong dairy farming industry, there are other local businesses e.g., Once Again Peanut Butter plant, The Seating Company, etc. that have made Nunda known outside our town limits. The town has an excellent Volunteer Fireman and Ambulance Corp that is second to none. The health care system has seen tremendous growth from Rochester based hospitals through the U of R branches and Rochester Regional Health system.

The church, Dalton Assembly of God, was first incorporated in 1929. While it is one of the younger churches in the community, its ministry has touched many over the years. From the early years of Bible studies held in homes to a small facility once used as a Moose club converted to a church to a newly built facility in 1988, the church continues to look forward to what ministry should be to the 21st century. The church is General Council affiliated with the General Council Assemblies of God in Springfield, Missouri and the New Yok District Assemblies of God in Liverpool, New York. The last pastor accepted another pastorate as he sensed God’s leading to step down after nearly 5 years, and the previous pastor’s tenure was for 38 years. The stability of the church is strong despite COVID and other factors. The congregation is averaging about 40-45 people, while the finances are holding its own with minor fluctuations. Ministry prior to COVID involved Sunday School, Sunday Worship service, Children’s Church, Girl’s Club, Royal Rangers, VBS, Bible Study, Youth, and a Nativity Drive Thru (absent for last two years). The salary will be negotiable depending on the applicant with a probable range of $25,000 to $40,000.00. Due to transition and COVID, ministry has seen its ebbs and flow.

Resumes may be sent via email at or via USPS at Dalton Assembly of God, PO Box 45, Dalton, New York 14836. If further information is desired, please contact the church via email above.
