The purpose of The First Baptist Church of Woodbridge is to glorify God through committed worship, intentional discipleship, and loving Christian fellowship, that they may faithfully share the love of Jesus Christ with as many people as possible in their church, community, and throughout the world. 


The First Baptist Church of Woodbridge, Virginia, is located in Prince William County about 25 miles south of Washington, D.C. FBC Woodbridge has become one of the largest and most prominent churches in this bedroom community of Washington, D.C. As the Lord moves transient members to other places of work and service, He provides replacements and growth through people moving to Woodbridge for a few years, or those moving to make Woodbridge their home. This membership flow gives the church a continuous capacity for fresh ideas, skills, and spiritual gifts for new and exciting work.


FBC Woodbridge is searching for a Family Pastor who will lead and provide oversight of the Children’s (including its para-ministries), Student, and College-age Student and Young Adult ministries at FBC Woodbridge. They will bear responsibility for administering and developing the comprehensive standards, curriculums, and programming elements of each entity, and ensure its successful implementation and alignment with the overall vision of the church.


The Family Pastor will lead a Children’s Ministry and Student Ministry that is marked by excellence, growth, and impact. They will be a servant-leader that champions the mission of each ministry and culture of FBCW. He will also provide leadership and support to the College-age Student and Young Adult ministry. This individual will be a strategic contributor to the leadership team, in terms of inter-generational growth and connectivity as FBC Woodbridge looks ahead to its future.


The ideal candidate for this position will possess a bachelor’s degree in a field that would contribute to the successful execution of the required expectations. A seminary degree is highly desired. The successful candidate for the position of Family Pastor will be highly intuitive, systematic, detail-oriented, creative, and relational. A spirit of adaptability with excellence in direct and indirect communication is vital for this position. They will possess a pioneering spirit with a strong desire to nurture, expand, and maximize the potential of the Children’s, Student, and College-age Student and Young Adult ministries at FBC Woodbridge. The candidate will be ideally gifted in leadership and administration with a strong pastoral lean.
