JOB DESCRIPTION:

This is a full-time pastoral position at First Baptist Church, Dumas, Texas. This pastor will work alongside the Senior Pastor and the Pastor for Youth and Families. The primary responsibilities of this pastor will be to lead the congregation in corporate worship through song, supplementing that with choirs, handbells, instruments, and other ensembles and groups as needed. This is a pastoral position, which involves caring for the spiritual needs of the people at FBC beyond the music ministry alone. Preaching, teaching, visiting, and other pastoral duties will be central to this position.

We value congregational worship and singing in our corporate worship services, and would expect that to be the focus of the music ministry at FBC Dumas. We are technically “blended” in our musical style, but lean heavily towards traditional. However, we are not stuck in any particular musical style; we want to learn and grow, singing old and new songs that carry theological and biblical truth, while also being accessible and singable by the congregation. Our typical repertoire includes hymns, gospel songs, and modern songs by ministries such as Sovereign Grace, the Gettys, and CityAlight.

Our students and children are not merely the church of tomorrow, they are the church right now. We want to build a multi-generational worship ministry at FBC that trains and equips children and youth for service in the local church now, and for the rest of their lives. Training the next generation via children’s and youth choirs, ensembles, solos, sound, media, and other ministries will be a big component of this position.

The breakdown for this position would look something like this:

  • Music and Worship Ministry (services, choir, handbells, etc.)- 75%
  • Pastoral duties such as preaching, teaching, visiting, etc.- 15%
  • Other areas of ministry to be determined- 10%

Salary and Benefits

FBC Dumas is a generous church with a long track record of caring for and supporting it pastoral leadership. This position would be no different.

  • Salary will be commensurate with education and experience ($50-60K)
  • Benefits include health insurance for the pastor and his family.
  • FBC will give 10% annually toward retirement through Guidestone.
  • Generous business expense including cell phone and other needs
  • Generous allowance for vacation and other days off from day one
