Job Description:

Solid Rock Ministry International of Garner, NC is prayerfully seeking a full time Senior Pastor for the church congregation.


Located in Garner, North Carolina, the Church began in 1992.  We have a Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship International affiliation, and a membership of about 300. Over the past 25 years we have watched God do some incredible things in and through our church.  After the transition of our founding Senior Pastor, we are seeking to build a future under the leadership of a new Senior Pastor.


As a ministry of vision, purpose, and destiny we are led by the Holy Spirit as we co-labor as a living body yielded and committed to God. Our church vision is to reach the lost in sin, the lost in tradition and the unreached people of the world. Our mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to obey the four stages of the Great Commission to Win, Consolidate, Disciple and Send.





The senior pastor will set the direction of the church to achieve its mission. The senior pastor will ensure that members receive biblically-based instruction by preaching and teaching, supporting ministry efforts, and providing pastoral care to those in need. Additionally, the ideal candidate will provide spiritual care in accordance to the Holy Bible and growth to the membership. The senior pastor’s personal character and financial standing must be above reproach both inside and outside of the church. The senior pastor must be an ordained minister of the Gospel as well as be willing to work in conjunction with the Board of Directors, the Deacon Board and the Ministerial Alliance of the church.
