The First Baptist Church of West Point, California is seeking a bi-vocational Pastor for our congregation, who would be willing to locate in our rural mountainous community.

We are a community of retired people and many disadvantaged people. Nearby is a Miwok village (Native American). Many of our citizens run to the mountains to get away from their former living experiences.

We need a shepherd for our flock who is a Bible-believing and preaching man, who adheres to the Baptist Faith and Message. We must have a pastor who cultivates a close, devotional relationship with God and as such exhibits that he knows Him through experience. We ask God for a man full of faith, courage, hope, and vision to help lead our congregation into a life-giving refuge in the midst of a world full of hopelessness and despair. He must meet the Biblical qualifications of 1 Timothy 3: 1 – 7. He needs to lead the church to fulfill the Great Commission by equipping us to carry out the five functions of a New Testament Church: Worship, evangelism, discipleship, ministry, and fellowship.

His personal qualities should include being: humble, vulnerable, self-controlled, joyful, action and goal-oriented, caring, approachable, ethical with strong moral character, trustworthy, faithful, willing to grow and change, devoted to his marriage and family, and willing to persevere in God’s work.
