Senior Pastor

Due to a retirement, Keeseville Independent Baptist Church (IBC) located in the foothills of the beautiful Adirondack Mountain region of upstate New York is looking for a candidate to fill the position of Senior Pastor.  IBC is a well-established ministry whose goal is to fulfill both the Great Commission and the Great Commandment.  We are a family of believers who truly love each other and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Pastor Profile

The Pastor of IBC must possess character and integrity as described in 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1, have a firm knowledge and conviction of the Scriptures, and be able to teach God’s truth clearly to others from the pulpit and individually, instructing in discipleship and training the church to do the work of the ministry. As the under-shepherd of Christ’s flock, he must have, and show, a deep care and concern for people. He should lead and provide vision to the church, working in concert with the deacons as part of a leadership team who are mutually accountable to one another.

The ideal candidate would have a Master’s degree in Theology/Divinity (or equivalent) or above and 10 years of pastoral experience.  A focus on expository preaching that also highlights and makes relevant many of the struggles a typical person has in our current culture is preferred as well as the ability to offer wise and godly counsel to those in need. Experience with ministering to younger families and how to increase their attendance and participation in ministry would be welcomed. Musical ability and leadership, though not necessary would also be a plus.

A generous compensation package including salary, housing/car allowance, and employer-paid family health insurance is included.
