Hopewell Baptist Church, 5061 Hopewell Road

Description :

Hopewell Baptist Church, established in 1842 in New Kent, Virginia, is praying to God for a spiritual, mature man who has a calling from God to pastor our church.  This man should have

a minimum of six years of pastoral ministry experience and have attended seminary.

The church is searching for a pastor in the age range of 40-49 and preferably married.  This man should be anointed in the love of God, Holy Spirit and the Word, following instructions of a pastor set forth in the Bible in 1 Timothy 3:1-7, 1 Thessalonians 5:11-13, 1 Peter 5:1-4,            Titus 1:5-9, and Galatians 5:22-27.  The pastor should also follow the Articles of the Southern Baptist Convention Baptist Faith Message as well as Hopewell Baptist Church’s By-Laws and Covenants.

The pastor should be a humble, gifted teacher of Bible truths who communicates well and who is able to present well-prepared Biblical sermons on Sunday morning worship services (current average attendance 80+) as well as Bible Study lessons on Wednesday evening (current average attendance 25+) to a blended group of family-oriented, mature Christian believers as well as new believers.  Also, this man should have a vision of growth and work well with the deacons, music director, staff, committees, congregation, and community.

The pastor should be skilled in evangelism, a willing servant of the Lord to assist in counseling, visiting the sick, needy, senior adults and be able to delegate responsibilities to the qualified members of the church body whenever needed.  The pastor needs to work out a weekly schedule of days and hours that are needed to serve the needs of the church.  We as a church body greatly understand the time and effort needed by a pastor to perform all of his duties.  We thus expect him to take days off during the week to refresh and renew his mind and body.

The church is very active in the community, which includes helping the needy, visitations, first Sunday Fellowship meal, Awana, Vacation Bible School, Resurrection Day Fellowship Breakfast, youth activities, and an annual fishing tournament.  We are also currently in the process of building a new church building for the future of His people.

We offer two weeks paid vacation after the first six months, paid holidays, sick leave, and other benefits agreed upon to fit the needs of the pastor.  The church will be offering a starting salary of $55,000.
