Job Description

First Baptist Church
217 Fulton St.
Hanover, Pa. 17331

Fellow Servant in Christ:

First Baptist Church is looking for a pastor to lead our congregation. We believe in the inerrant word of God and what we do must be bible driven guided by the Holy Spirit. We are a church with an older congregation but we are looking for someone who is interested in reaching young people. While most of our congregation is retired and we currently do not have a youth group or children’s programs other than VBS and Wednesday night Lego Club. We are looking for some one to revitalize our ministry to the people of Hanover. We are open and excited at the possibilities that exist even if it is something we have not tried before. We have placed emphasis on missions and a lot of the young people that have grown up in our church have gone to the mission field. We now feel God’s guidance to focus more on Hanover and want to place more of our resources towards reaching the lost in Hanover, Pa. Currently Hanover has only about 19% of the population regularly involved in a Bible believing Christ centered church. We are looking for someone who has received a calling to that kind of challenge. We know that we will need to be flexible and are expecting and excited about changes to how we do things.

We feel we are looking for someone who has a heart for the younger generation. We would be interested in someone right out of seminary or if someone who might have experience with revitalization. We do feel we need to change how we reach the community. We do have a building that is located in town. We have about 30-50 in morning worship on regular basis. We have a budget of about $100/000.00 a year. To start we feel that we will not be able to provide the the entire salary of a candidate but we want the church to grow to be able to put more of our resources into funding the our work in Hanover including full support for our pastor. We also have the services of our current interim pastor who is willing to help mentor our new pastor if it is needed.

We are excited of what God’s has planned for his work at First Baptist. We are looking forward to fresh ideas and changes in our worship that will meet the needs of our community. We are ready to meet those challenges that have been placed before us.
