JOB DESCRIPTION                                                             


About our Church:  We are a Southern Baptist Church located in Southwest Virginia, just a few miles from NC.  Currently, we are celebrating our 125th Year Anniversary.  In 2003, we moved into our new location and quickly needed more classrooms.   Sunday morning services have approximately 125--160 in attendance, and we are enthusiastic to grow and expand.

Summary of Role:  To be a person to seek and meet the spiritual needs of the people of the church through biblical preaching and teaching the Word of God.  To fill the duties of the Pastor of the church by collaborating with church members, to lead his personal life with integrity, reasonably meeting the expectations of the congregation as its minister while at the same time living his own life, as God would have him to.

Characteristics:  A person who can accept the church as an imperfect organization composed of imperfect people who must be loved and forgiven, to work with the elected leaders of the church and to be the Pastor of all the people of the church-from the youngest to the oldest of our congregation- and to be open to accept and profit by constructive criticism from the people of the church.

Responsibilities:  To be competent in the ministry through well-prepared sermons, improvement of pastoral skills through continued study of the Word of God, able to provide mission-minded pastoral care in crisis situations, administrative and organizational leadership, and regular visitations to church members as needed.  The pastor is to be available during the week and while away from the church field.

Requirements of the position:  An ideal candidate is led by the Spirit of God, meeting the criteria set forth in I Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:6-9.
