WHO WE ARE:

With deep roots dating back to 1873, Stromsburg Baptist  was the first church chartered in the Stromsburg area. With a strong influence from the Great Commission and Acts 1:8 Stromsburg Baptist has always made it a priority to proclaim the gospel locally, engage in gospel outreach regionally, and to globally send and support missionaries for the furthering of the great message of salvation through Christ Jesus.  Averaging about 105 in attendance, the church has a budget of over $200K, nearly 50% volunteerism, and is able to employ a full-time pastor along with other part-time assistance.  Affiliated with Converge Heartland, Stromsburg Baptist is a multi-generational church that exists to glorify God, exalt Christ, and make disciples.

 

WHERE WE ARE:
Stromsburg is located in east-central Nebraska and is known as the Swedish Capitol of Nebraska.  Having grown and developed upon the rich soil of Nebraska’s premier farming country, Stromsburg is not only a prime location for raising crops, it also known as a great place to raise a family, as revealed through a recent influx of young families.    As the largest community in Polk County, Stromsburg has a regional influence that goes well beyond her city limits and population.  Though Stromsburg offers many amenities, the three larger communities of Columbus, York, and Grand Island are located 20 to 50 miles away, with the cities of Lincoln and Omaha being 70 and 100 miles away, respectively.

 

WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOR:
Stromsburg Baptist Church is prayerfully seeking a man of God who is a team player that relationally leads, celebrates our multi-generational church, and engages in our community.  Ideally, we are looking for a pastor with a family and solid pastoral experience.  Due to the context of our community and region, our pastor must be a person who is energized by being with people, while maintaining the pastoral balance of community engagement, pastoral care, church ministries, and the health of his family and marriage.    We are blessed to have a high degree of volunteerism and so we desire our pastor to relationally work with and through teams, and to develop/disciple new and existing ministry leaders.   Ultimately, we desire a pastor who loves the Gospel and relationally pursues the growth of believers and the salvation of the lost.
