First Baptist Church (FBC) seeks an ordained minister who is an effective preacher and teacher and is a mature and emotionally secure leader. S/He will have a strong commitment to stewardship and educational ministry that helps people of all ages develop their spiritual lives. FBC of South Boston is an innovative, inclusive Christian fellowship of friendly, caring believers committed to sharing God’s Good News. We are one of the best-known churches in our small friendly town and have been playing a vital role in shaping the spiritual landscape of the greater South Boston area for over 135 years. We offer weekly Sunday School and worship service and want all people to feel welcome here. We seek a Pastor to continue the aim to reach all of the community: growing families or singles, older adults, and especially children, as they are our future. Our First Baptist Weekday School, an outreach of our church, is a Christ centered preschool, extended care, and after-school program. Our growing youth group meets weekly and participates in local missions and is actively involved in church and community activities. Our senior adult activity group, the Keenagers, takes trips throughout the year to various music or theatre productions and enjoys socializing over shared meals and adventures. Our church aims to show hospitality within our community in a variety of ways: receptions after church-wide events, dinners for summer Prizery guests, Homecoming luncheons, graduation breakfasts, and more. FBC houses The Good Samaritan, a community-based service for those in need. Our Vacation Bible School reaches children throughout the community to help them learn about Christ’s teachings and how to give back to those in need. Our local missions work has built handicap ramps for people, painted and repaired houses, and distributed food to families in need. Mission trips to Chile have helped a community establish a church and hold their own VBS. In addition, FBC annually participates in Operation Christmas Child. We have been very blessed to have had a very successful Capital Campaign – in progress ($650,000 plus). We have renovated and improved much of the physical plant, grounds, and programs.
