Baldwin Community Church is seeking a candidate for Senior Pastor. Baldwin Community Church is a nondenominational Christian church in Todd, North Carolina.

We have a vision for building a new church and God has blessed us with 20+ acres of land which has been paid in full and is ready for the vision to be fulfilled. We are open to growth, desire to bring the lost to Jesus Christ, minister to the poor, reach out to the people of our community and people in rest homes and taking care of those especially of the household of God.
