This person may or may not be an ordained minister of the Gospel. As a minister and spiritual leader of the church, he is expected to embody and reflect in his life and ministry the biblical qualifications of a pastor as found in 1 Timothy 3:1-7
He shall give evidence of a genuine conversion experience and a growing maturity in his Christian life. He shall possess a personal awareness and conviction of a divine call to the Gospel Ministry. He shall be a Southern Baptist with a deep conviction in support of the Southern Baptist Convention, and have a strong belief and practice towards missions, both at home and abroad.
It is expected that he carries himself with the utmost integrity. Although an employee of First Baptist Church, ultimately, he works to glorify Jesus. This means refraining from talk and behavior unbecoming of a follower of Jesus including inappropriate use of social media. It is expected that you will be honest, fair, and do what is right to the best of your ability.
It is expected that while you are “on the clock” you will be working. The office and ministry staff of First Baptist Church operate as a team, which means you will be asked to provide a helping hand in ministries that may not be directly connected to your job description or ministry position.
It is expected that all employees keep confidentiality. It is expected that any information that is shared with you deemed personal should remain confidential unless legal action is needed.
