SALARY RANGE: Commensurate with Experience

DENOMINATION: Southern Baptist



MinisterSearch ( is delighted to partner with a growing, established church in a family-friendly town.   If you love senior adults and ministering to them, then this position is a great opportunity for you!  


The church has a weekly attendance of 1100, and the Pastor and Staff love their senior adults, so the successful candidate will be passionate about this ministry. The Senior Adult Pastor leads and coordinates the seniors' ministry. This person will be a passionate, mature leader who possesses strong teaching and communication skills, outstanding leadership and team building skills, and strong interpersonal relational skills.


There is a strong bond among the staff. They have common ground with watching sports, playing sports on church teams, and having a good time in ministry. They work through everything as a team with an 'all in' mentality that they are one, and the church is God's. Nothing is as an individual, everything is as a church body.


Located in western South Carolina, this lovely city is like an upscale suburb of a big city, without the big city traffic, etc., although it is only a "suburb's" drive from a large city. The people here want to be involved in the community—civic groups are very big here, as are all kinds of outdoor activities, and there's a lot of good southern hospitality! The community is vibrant, very family friendly and grows and changes while maintaining its conservative values. And, it is home to many well-educated, intelligent residents who enjoy their computers and iPhones just as much as the younger crowd.


This church is all about community and works toward being the place where the community comes in crisis. And this begins with love—and the senior adults of this church have a huge capacity to love and serve under the leadership and care of their Senior Adult Pastor.
