First Baptist has created a culture of prayer in the church community, this culture of prayer has continued as we seek a new Lead Pastor. As stated above we are eager to call a godly man to be our Lead Pastor who “Loves God, loves people, and invites them to follow Jesus.” As you enter the process we ask you to join us in prayer for the next steps that God may have for you and for First Baptist. We will also be updating this section so the First Baptist Family and Candidates will be updated with our progress.

The Lead Pastor Search Team continues meeting every other week, processing and preparing interview questions for potential candidates and reviewing the applications that we have received. We have not identified any one candidate as the one whom we feel is God’s man for our next season of ministry. We will continue receiving applications up through and until March 15, 2019. After March 15, decisions will be made as to the candidates who qualify for the next phase of our search which will be Skype interviews with the top 4 or 5 candidates. Please pray that God would lead and direct us by His Holy Spirit.

The Lead Pastor Search Team met with representatives from Converge to process the results of the congregational survey that was filled out by the congregation. Converge was pleased with the great response from our church family and both the congregation and Leadership believe that the top three qualities and skills to look for in our next Lead Pastor is teaching, visioning and equipping. As we begin to contact potential candidates, please pray that God would lead and direct us by His Holy Spirit.
