Second baptist church

Pastor Job Description

Second Baptist Church is part of the Southern Baptist Convention and a member of the Western Baptist Association. We are located in the historic city of Cumberland, within the beautiful Appalachian Mountains of Western MD. Our church, also known in the area as ‘the big yellow church,’ has a rich history of serving the local community for over 100 years. We are a Word driven, prayer focused, mission-oriented family of believers. We remain united in tirelessly seeking and saving the lost while serving our Lord and Savior.

We meet every week for Sunday School, followed by our morning worship service. Throughout the week, we serve the community with various mission activities and outreach events. In the last year, Second Baptist has averaged 50-65 people in attendance on Sunday mornings. Our church consists of 70 active members.

Position to fill:

We are looking for a bi-vocational or fully funded pastor, who has been called by God to shepherd a congregation in service and growth as they mature in their walk with the Lord. A servant’s heart is paramount, while ministering within our community and working with our existing partnerships. The called pastor will need to lead his members through sound doctrinal discipling with an emphasis on expository preaching. His ministry will include contacting and visiting members of the church on a regular basis, or as needed. He will provide scriptural counseling to those who seek help during a time of need.
