First Southern Baptist Church of Mayer is praying that God will lead to us a pastor who is eager in helping us fulfill our mission as a body of believers to the community of Mayer and beyond. Our last pastor served us for 7 years and we are currently being served by a transitional pastor who is preparing us for the great moment we call a new pastor. We are currently a small church comprised of older saints who are desirous in having younger generations join us so that this body will continue to minister into the future God has prepared for it.
Needless to say we desire a pastor whose life reflects the Savior whom he serves. We desire to have a pastor that is familiar with the particular elements of serving in a rural community. We desire a pastor who has had some formal Bible training and a man who’s walk exhibits at least 5 years of ministry experience (either vocationally or lay ministry). While we do have a strong preference that he be married, it is not essential. We desire an individual that will exhibit some adeptness in all areas of ministry; however, the strongest areas we are looking for are in preaching, teaching and leadership. We require as well that he will uphold all tenants of the Baptist Faith and Message. We have as well a strong disposition towards the necessity that the pastor live in Mayer or one of the close neighboring communities so as to become a part of the community in which he serves.
