Full Time (salary TBD)
Location: Mobile Alabama
After the retirement of our former pastor and the church holding firm during the Covid pandemic, Woodridge Baptist Church is prayerfully seeking God’s man to be the spiritual leader of His church. We seek a pastor who obviously loves God, is led by the Holy Spirit and has a shepherd’s heart for the church.
Woodridge Baptist is a fairly large Southern Baptist church located in the growing West Mobile area. Organized in 1983, Woodridge has grown from a small church plant to one of the larger churches in the Mobile area. Woodridge is a closely united church located in a populated area with 150,000 people in a 6-mile radius. The church is blessed to have large facilities (approximately 110,000 sq. ft) located on 18 acres in a prime area of West Mobile. Pre-pandemic, our attendance in life groups was 450 to 500 and worship services in the 650-700 range. We are pleased to highlight that Woodridge proceeded through this extremely trying pandemic time with an attitude of “trusting God and overcoming fear” and is coming out of it probably in generally better shape than most churches in south Alabama…. In fact, with the 2020 cloud of Covid 19 hanging over Woodridge…God blessed as we performed a 1.3 million dollar update/renovation of the church, maintained a firm church budget, and proudly remained almost debt free. We are blessed with a ministerial staff of 5 under the Senior Pastor. Woodridge’s dominant core values are seeing the lost saved, missions, ministering to our church family and local community outreach. We believe Woodridge Baptist is poised at a “strategic point in time” in west Mobile and with Gods man the church is ready for revival and explosive growth.
Senior Pastor – A man who obviously loves God, is focused on reaching the lost and at the same time has a pastors heart for ministering to his local church. He should be a great preacher, teacher and Christian example leader. He should be theologically conservative and have at least 7 years as a Senior Pastor with a masters degree from a Southern Baptist Seminary. He should be a married man preferably with children. He should have a passion for reaching young people and families. In this day and time, the Senior Pastor candidate should be totally comfortable with comprehensive background and reference checks. Finally, the new Pastor, his wife and family should be ready to be loved by his church.
