Full-time Pastor: First Baptist Church, Springfield, Ohio, an American Baptist Church

First Baptist Church is seeking a pastor to serve a congregation of about 70 active members in Springfield, Ohio, a city of 60,000 in south-central Ohio.

First Baptist has chosen to stay in an inner-city neighborhood that includes both grand historic houses and the deteriorated homes of some of the city’s poorest residents.

First Baptist encompasses many paradoxes:

  • An aging congregation with a large cluster of young children
  • A membership that leans to the progressive side, but contains a wide spectrum of views.
  • A church with deep American Baptist connections, but people of many backgrounds.
  • A congregation with a strong commitment to tradition, but openness to new approaches.

As we struggle with declining membership, we retain a deeply committed core of members giving much in time and resources to their church. We hope for a pastor who can lead us to a path of new growth and a renewed ministry in the city.

Interested applicants should send a resume or ABC profile, together with DVDs or links to sermons to Steve Schlather, 1402 St. Paris Road, Springfield, OH 45504, or to sschlather@sbcglobal.net.
