The Big River Baptist Church is located in the Colorado River area near Parker, Arizona and Blythe, California. Our community has a stable population of 1575. Much of the land in Big River is owned and leased by the CRIT Native American Tribe.

We are the only church in Big River and we are followers of the Southern Baptist faith. We have a significant number of snowbirds who are here 6 months out of the year. God has blessed us with beautiful and newer facilities, our worship center seating is about 160. Our baptismal is approximately 100 yards away in the beautiful Colorado River! Our area offers many unique recreational and ministry opportunities. We are searching for a pastor who enjoys desert living and can relate to all ages of people. He must have a strong Southern Baptist background.

This church at present does not offer a parsonage. There is an active “parsonage account” in place that will one day be used to purchase a parsonage. We do offer an RV space behind the church with full hookups. Anyone interested in this position, should be aware that this is a desert area with summertime temperatures of 115°-125°.
