Shiloh Metropolitan Baptist Church started as a small prayer circle in 1875, through Mother Lena, at the corner of Ward (now known as Houston) and Davis Streets. These prayer meetings grew, and the Holy Spirit was moved to organize the Shiloh Baptist Church on May 15, 1875. At that time, the first Pastor was called, ordained, and installed. Since that early date, the Lord has allowed the Church to remain a vital, soul-saving force in the LaVilla Community for many, many decades. During these 100+ years, Shiloh has been blessed with 12 Pastors, all men endowed with the Holy Spirit.

On July 30, 2008, Shiloh unanimously called H.B. Charles, Jr., as their next Pastor.  God has blessed Shiloh with an under shepherd who exhibits God's love from his heart and teaches the Word of God in an expository style.  The members of Shiloh Metropolitan Baptist Church rejoice in the work that God has yet to reveal to them, as Pastor Charles writes the next chapter in Shiloh's history. Pastor Charles truly believes that, “Our dreams are greater than our memories.”

The Children & Families Pastor is responsible for the development, implementation, and administration of a comprehensive ministry for children and families.

The ideal candidate will have a bachelor's degree and a minimum of three years on a church staff. The successful candidate will have proven experience in strategically planning, executing, managing, and growing a dynamic children’s & family ministry. They will be comfortable speaking to large groups (both children and adults) as well as developing teams of volunteer leaders who are equipped to run a weekly, thriving children’s ministry.
