Job Description:
God is providing you an opportunity to fill a Sr. Pastor position at First Baptist Church of Red Bank, NJ (an American Baptist Church). We are in the coastal area of Central New Jersey (1 hr South of NY City). Our new Pastor will have a strong calling to serve in our church, plus 5 yrs recent Sr. Pastor experience with a congregation of 200 or more attending, and still growing, plus experience managing a budget of $200,000 or more, and have an MDiv or equal. He will also have managed a talented multi-staff church setting.

We invite your visit to our Church website at since it includes highlights of some of our recent worship services. We have been blessed by more than 17% growth for 5 plus years. Under the leadership of our past Pastor, our youth leader has grown his group from a single member to more than 80 during that same time span.

Our facilities had a top-to-bottom renovation within the last 36 months. We are a very happy congregation of more than 360 households. Our congregation is generous in spirit and giving - and we are running well ahead of budget. We are filled with lots of opportunities for spiritual growth, connecting Fellowship, and mission involvement. Our congregational age is centered near the mid to late 40s. At either end of the graph we have loyal and supportive seniors, and a baby and toddler boom pushing our growth.

Our worship style for both Sunday morning services is a blended mix of hymn and choruses, accompanied by guitars, piano, a major pipe organ, drums, keyboard, and trombone, led by a p/t Music Director. We have a wonderful interim Pastor working hard and succeeding in keeping us strong. Our loved and respected past pastor retired due to severe health issues.

Your potential compensation package is considered to be very generous, by folks who have reviewed it, and includes terrific ABC denominational benefits, and optionally a great parsonage located within 100 ft of the rear parking lot of the Church. A housing allowance is available as an alternative to use of the parsonage.
