Southern Baptist Convention

Due to pastor moving to another ministry, Second Baptist Church is seeking a Full Time or Bi-Vocational Pastor. We are seeking a Spirit-filled pastor who loves Jesus Christ and His Word, seeking to serve Him, one who loves His church, and preaches the Southern Baptist faith.

We are a Southern Baptist congregation who supports the Cooperative program, Baptist Children's Home, Lottie Moon, and Annie Armstrong offerings.

Herrin is a town of 12,000 in beautiful southern Illinois, approximately 90 miles southeast from St. Louis, MO, and 20 miles from Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, IL. Sunday school runs between 80-86; morning worship between 102-111. We have a wonderful AWANA program on Sunday nights. We would encourage our pastor to help us minister to the unchurched parents of the AWANA children.

The pastor's primary objectives will be:
* To teach, train, and equip the church body for ministry using the Bible as the ultimate authority.
* To be mission-minded.
* To be able to relate to people of various generations.
* To visit the sick and home-bound.

Full Time Salary: $45,000 Starting Base Salary
