We are currently seeking the man that God is calling to be our Youth Pastor at First Baptist Church. We as a church realize the importance of reaching and ministering to our young students as they are the "Joshua generation" of our time. First and most important we desire to see students have a personal relationship with Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Second, we desire to see students grow in their faith and walk with Christ once that relationship is established and become the mature believers that God desires them to be. We are excited for what the Lord has in store for our youth ministry and our church. The salary will be based upon experience and we do provide a parsonage for the youth pastor to live in.
