First Baptist Church of Dawes is seeking a man to serve as a full-time Sr. Pastor who meets the following qualifications:
A married man, ordained to the ministry by a Southern Baptist church and having a good report from within and without the church.
A man who preaches and teaches the truth as he derives it from the Word of God as his sole authority, as one who will give an account for his ministry before God.
A man who conforms to the qualifications of a pastor as set forth in Scripture (I Tim. 3:1-7, Titus 1:6-9).
A man who regularly and systematically supports the financial programs of the church through tithes and offerings. It is expected that all church leaders be tithers in keeping with the biblical injunction, giving at least one tenth of their income to the support of the church.
A man who is committed to the June 14, 2000 version of The Baptist Faith and Message and lives a lifestyle consistent with that commitment.
The Sr. Pastor at FBC Dawes will have the following responsibilities:
The primary responsibility of the pastor will be the preaching of the Word of God in the regular weekly worship times. He shall have responsibility to secure an appropriate supply preacher when he is not available or able to preach at any given worship service.
He will preside over and preserve order and decorum at all meetings of the church in order to secure to every member, without partiality, the exercise of their privileges; to give his views of the law of Christ, as bearing on such cases of discipline as may occur; to use faithfully the influence which justly arises from the character of his office.
He will be faithful to visit the members of the Church for the purpose of spiritual instruction, admonition, and comfort; to warn and reprove those who backslide; to visit the sick; and to embrace every opportunity to speak to the unsaved.
He will spend regular time in study and preparation for the preaching and teaching of the Word of God.
He will administer the ordinances.
He will have general oversight of the church and its varied activities, and in such capacity he will attend all activities of the church when appropriate, unless unavoidably hindered.
He will be an ex-officio member of all committees. In consultation and cooperation with the officers elected by the church, he will vigorously urge the execution of all plans of work which are initiated and outlined.
He shall have general supervision of all staff personnel.
He will, at the request of the Deacon Body and/or church membership, assume other necessary administrative duties that would further God’s Kingdom and/or First Baptist Church of Dawes.
