We are looking for a Pastor who…

  • Must meet the qualifications for an elder as laid out in the pastoral epistles.

  • Must be wholeheartedly in agreement with Village Baptist Church statement of faith.

  • Must believe and practice the sufficiency of Scripture (2 Peter 1:3).

  • Must have had or be willing to have basic counseling training at an ACBC (Association of Certified Biblical Counselors) approved training center. (If you haven’t had any formal training, we would ask that training be completed at the earliest workable time.)

  • Must not view ministry at Village Baptist Church as a “stepping stone” ministry. (“I will stay here until something better comes along”). What we are looking for is someone to be convinced that “this is where God called me to be – and this is what I want to do – period.”

  • This person’s wife must be totally committed to his calling (cf. Gen 2:18&24).

  • We are looking for a servant-leader (cf. Matthew 20:20-28).

  • We are looking for someone who is an example as a believer (1 Timothy 4:12; 2 Thess 3:9).

  • We are looking for someone who accurately handles Scripture (2 Timothy 2:15).

  • We are looking for someone who is comfortable with and feels called to minister in a small-town context (Lake Village proper – roughly 600 people – Schneider – about 3 miles north of us – maybe 400 people. We call our local “Walmart” - “Family Dollar Store”).

  • We are looking for someone whose passion is to equip the saints for the work of ministry (Ephesians 4:11-12).

  • We are looking for someone whose heart’s desire is to be used of God to make a difference.
