Southern Baptist Convention

Pastor position will likely be part-time, bi-vocational, but we are open to how God leads. We are prayerfully seeking a part-time pastor to shepherd our small congregation in the growing and revitalized community of Donelson (less than 10 ten miles east of downtown Nashville). We would like a pastor who can help the congregation develop deeper more meaningful relationships with Jesus Christ, while casting a vision to connect to the community through service and love. We are a warm and welcoming family and would like a pastor who prioritizes contacting those who are sick, home bound, or visiting our congregation. The pastor would be responsible for preparing and delivering sermons and biblical teachings on Sunday Morning, Sunday Night, and Wednesday Night. The pastor would also provide administrative leadership in all areas of the church life, supervising paid church staff and actively working with deacons, teacher, and ministry leaders.
