Senior Pastor Position
FULL-TIME (Salary: Commensurate with experience/education + housing and benefits)
Location: Newbern, TN
Newbern First Baptist Church of Newbern, Tennessee, is prayerfully seeking a full-time pastor.
We are a united body made of all ages and talents, and we use our different gifts to bring us closer in our worship experience with Him. We are located in a town of 3,300 within a county of over 37,500 in Northwest Tennessee. We have an average Sunday morning attendance that has grown to 335 with much further growth potential. The pastor will lead a small staff, oversee a multi-building campus and assist in the administration of a $576,000 budget. The pastor will follow a 25-year pastor that faithfully served and helped grow the church.
Our church is seeking a pastor with a heart for evangelism, a devotion to teaching and preaching, a love for missions, a passion for reaching young people and families, a desire to develop leaders and a family who is ready to be loved by the church and involved in community life. He must strongly affirm and support The Baptist Faith and Message 2000, demonstrate strong support of the Southern Baptist Cooperative Program, and believe that salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Our next pastor will also be involved in leading the church during the physical building of a new children’s facility (with the support of a diligent building committee) and seeing many more souls reached with God’s love in the years that follow the project’s completion.
