Senior Pastor

Middle River Baptist Church - Middle River, MD


Middle River Baptist Church (MRBC), a member of the Baltimore Baptist Association within the Baptist Convention of Maryland/Delaware, is seeking a Senior Pastor.

Having celebrated our 75th anniversary in 2020, MRBC is a church in revitalization. Our congregation is predominately of the Baby Boomer generation in a younger and socially diverse community. Believing that, "Middle River Baptist Church exists to glorify God by changing everyday people into joyful followers of Jesus Christ," we are prayerfully seeking God's leading in our search.

Individuals who believe God may be calling them to this Senior Pastor position should possess the following Biblical qualifications. They will be certain God has called them to "feed" and "tend" this congregation in pastoral ministry.

They will be sound in doctrine and able to develop leaders who practice and teach doctrine consistent with the infallible Word of God. We adhere to the Baptist Faith and Message which we believe is rooted in the authority of the Holy Bible.

The successful aspirant will be an expository preacher, proclaiming all of God's word so that this congregation will be thoroughly nourished to grow in serving Christ.

The successful aspirant will be able to demonstrate an evangelistic mindset and lifestyle. This includes equipping others to have the same desire and knowledge to "go and make disciples." We believe that feeding, clothing, and ministering to the needs of the lost achieves nothing of salvific value if we do not in that ministry proclaim the saving grace of Jesus Christ.

MRBC is seeking a pastor who has been seasoned with a number of years of pastoral ministry. Like all the world we have been impacted by the COVID pandemic, yet God has graciously provided for us to maintain an Interim Senior Pastor, a full time Pastor of Family Ministries, and an Interim Music and Worship Minister. We are also blessed with an Associate Pastor Emeritus. Our Senior Pastor must be talented to lead this diverse group of leaders. Resumes are due by April 30, 2021.
