First Baptist Church - Clay, is a Southern Baptist Church in a small rural community with approximately 120 weekly members and visitors. Our congregation is seeking a full-time associate pastor whose main ministry focus will be on middle school, high school, and connecting college-age students to the life of the church.
On Wednesdays, last school year, we ministered to approximately 134 students. At the beginning of this upcoming school year, 49 of those students will be between 7th-11th grade with a large 6th grade class coming after that. There is a great opportunity for whomever God selects for us.
We view the associate position as a "pastor" (1 Timothy 3:8-13 & Titus 1:5-9) not a hired-hand. The associate pastor of students will work with, be mentored, and held accountable by, the lead pastor. There will be opportunities to preach on occasion and will be expected to preach when the lead pastor is away.
We are seeking a man called to student ministry, not one who views it as a stepping stone. Obviously, God ultimately controls that but a commitment to students is paramount for this position.
