Somerset Baptist Church, Somerset, Texas, a traditional Southern Baptist Church founded in 1857, is prayerfully seeking a Senior Pastor to lead our congregation as we move forward together to fulfill our mission of reaching people, loving God, growing together and serving others.


We are looking for a candidate with the following qualifications…


  • Graduate from a biblically conservative seminary.


  • Believes the Bible is the inerrant “Word of God”.


  • Preferably a minimum of five years experience on a church staff in a significant leadership position.


  • Fulfills the biblical qualifications, as described in I Timothy and Titus.


  • Believes in collaborative leadership.


  • Is married and loves his family.


Plus, he will be a man who…


  • Has the ability to cast a powerful vision and effectively lead the staff, elders and other leaders in carrying out the mission of Somerset Baptist Church.


  • Possesses strong communication skills and the ability to preach biblically-based messages that are relevant and life-transforming for both believers and non-believers.


  • Reaches out to and connects with people from all walks of life and makes them feel welcome to worship with our church family – wherever they may be in their relationship with God.


  • Has a passion for reaching the lost and for continuing to develop both local and international outreach ministries.


  • Believes in and embraces the need for personal evangelism and discipleship.


  • Has experience and ability to connect with a small group and others who are potential teaching partners.


  • Helps people achieve spiritual and emotional wholeness by supporting and embracing Christian truths… and helping others realize and live out their identity in Christ.


  • Makes himself available for hospital visits and crisis ministry with our family of faith and shares these responsibilities with the Church family.


In summary, we’re seeking a man who has a shepherd’s heart… is approachable… and loves God and His children deeply. He has passion and skill for engaging people who do not know the Lord… a heart for missions… and a love for the poor.  He should be skilled at communicating biblical principles that compel life application.
