TITLE: Senior Pastor
First Baptist Church of Elon is looking for a pastor that will support our vision: God is calling us to be a church that is compassionate, serving and accepting. God is calling us to minister in ways that are honest, loving, respectful and faithful.
Our style of worship is blended with contemporary and traditional elements. FBCE has a strong commitment to missions, especially on a local level. We are located in the heart of Elon University’s campus and would like to expand opportunities in this mission field. Our church ordains men and women as deacons, and both men and women hold leadership positions within the church. Our church is searching for a pastor that will relate well to all ages and seek outreach opportunities to our surrounding community. We average 85 in Sunday School attendance and 125 in worship. The congregation desires a relational pastor, but the person should also be gifted in preaching and teaching God’s word. The pastor should work with the leadership, staff and congregation to determine strategic direction and policies for FBCE.
A seminary degree is required, with a minimum of five years in a pastoral ministry. We are affiliated with Cooperative Baptist Fellowship.
Deadline for submission of applications was December, 31, 2013.
