First Baptist Church of Blakely is a Southern Baptist Church in Southwest Georgia. Due to the recent retirement of our Senior Pastor we are currently looking for a new Senior Pastor. We are looking for a shepherd to lead our congregation and work alongside our Worship Pastor and Youth Pastor.
Principle Function: The Pastor is responsible for proclaiming the Gospel of Christ and encouraging the local church body to do likewise; for the guiding and spiritual development of the congregation; for providing pastoral care in meeting the needs of the church and community; and for providing administrative leadership for the church.
Requirements: Knowledge, Skills Abilities: The Senior Pastor is to be a man of God, who has ordered his life in compliance with the teaching of Scripture and the example of our Lord. He is to be an example to the believers in personal godliness (1 Timothy 4:12) and exemplify God’s requirements for a Pastor, which includes maintaining a proper Christian home (1 Timothy 3:1-7). The Pastor shall lead in spiritual matters and shall preach regularly to the church administering the various ordinances of the gospel. The Pastor shall be willing to work in conjunction with the staff, deacons and other church leadership, partnering with the congregation (1 Peter 5:3) to take the gospel of Christ in word and deed beyond the four walls of the church to a world in need of a Savior.
