Our ideal full-time pastoral leader will be God called and will provide guidance in our mission of loving and leading people into a growing relationship with Jesus. From worship services to missions, our pastor will find his personal calling aligns with our need which requires an energetic leadership ability, spiritual gifts, and the ability to communicate scripture and apply Biblical teachings in a way that is attentive to our congregation. He should be accessible and encouraging to our youth. He should be supportive and engaged in our church missions (Acts 1:8). He should be in theological agreement with the “Baptist Faith and Message” (2000 revision) and should support the ministry of the Kentucky Baptist Convention. He should cooperate with associational, state, and denominational leaders in matters of mutual interests. He should support the work of the Southern Baptist Convention and cooperative program. A seminary education is preferred but not required.
