Seeking full time senior pastor for independent Baptist church, with a congregation of 125-150. Our church promotes a traditional Bible believing ministry. We are seeking a pastor who is a man of God as described in 1 Timothy 3:2-7, with a shepherd’s heart. We are looking for an experienced pastor to equip and lead our congregation to better serve our diverse community. We want someone to be a role model for our children, become a member of our leadership team and help us grow. We have plans for hiring a part-time youth pastor. We also feel the need for a part-time Christian Education Administrator.
Our congregation was founded in 1887. The majority of our congregation is seniors, but we are looking to expand our family, with children and youth ministries. We wish to offer Sunday school for all ages. Currently there are two adult Sunday school classes, plus two men’s groups (Tuesday and Saturday mornings), and two women’s groups (Monday night and Tuesday morning). We also host Vacation Bible School in August and AWANA during the school year.
We have a small choir accompanied by piano, keyboard, organ and guitar. We like a mix of music styles. We also have multimedia, with texts and songs projected on a screen, and a worship bulletin is provided.
We have a debt-free church, built in 1959. It is fairly large with several classrooms, and a large fellowship hall/gym with a stage. Our Sanctuary will accommodate 400 people. We also have a separate small chapel. There is a large professional kitchen with a strong kitchen team, offering a monthly meal. The building is in generally good condition. It is located on a main artery through town, and located across the street from two high schools.
It is a board-led church with a constitution, and by-laws, with final authority resting with the congregation. Our staff consists of an office manager and part-time custodian.
We support several international missionary programs, as well as the local Good News Rescue Mission.
We wish to expand our children and youth programs, and expand the outreach to our local neighborhood, which has a large lower income demographic.
Our starting salary package is in the range of $50,000.00 per year, with benefits to be negotiated, depending on qualifications.
Redding, has about 90,000 in population, it remains one of the most economical areas of California, with many recreational features in the area; lakes, rivers, mountains, and forests.
