Church seeking Pastor

First (Southern) Baptist Church of Redway is located in an extremely small town in rural northwestern California.  We are surrounded by an area full of natural beauty, but are also very isolated and have a large, versatile, counter-culture presence.

We are seeking an energetic man with a humble spirit and a missionary’s heart who will shepherd our body using sound doctrine with inspiration and practical application.  Our body prefers a nice balance of contemporary and traditional worship and we desire a pastor who feels the same. 

Please send resume to the email below or mail to:

Redway, CA 95560

Please include your statement of faith and doctrinal position on eschatology as well as election vs. free will.

God has already moved in the heart of the man that will come by faith and lead us into the next chapter of ministry.
