1st L. G. (First Baptist Church of Locust Grove, GA) is seeking a full-time Contemporary Worship Minister.

1st L. G. is a church about 45 minutes south of Atlanta that is committed to reaching our rapidly growing community in relevant ways. We are a Biblically conservative church that has determined to be current, innovative, and effective in order to connect with people and help them become passionate followers of Jesus!

We have recently been undergoing a transition from a traditional expression to a modern, Christ-centered, outward focused movement.

Our musical direction is Christ-centered worship along the lines of Passion, Elevation, Hillsong Young and Free, and Bethel, etc.

We are looking for a creative contemporary worship minister to join our team and help us as we strive to excel and further impact our community.

BACKGROUND CHECKS: You Owe It To Your Church

A ministry that serves children and youth has the obligation to exercise “due diligence” with regards to protecting its members, especially the children. By performing background checks on your perspective ministers your church is…

  • Putting up a safeguard at the “doorway” of the organization that will, in most cases, scare off sexual predators.
  • Offering peace of mind to discerning parents when choosing a church, by knowing your ministry is being pro-active in trying to protect the children.

Protect My Ministry -

Protect My Ministry

Thousands of ministries trust Protect My Ministry, a ministry background check company. One of the only background check companies that will do a free “re-verification” of records from the national criminal database for a volunteer, and to also do a “true” 50 state search on sexual offenders.

Protect My Ministry is a Christian-owned and operated business, being 51% business and 49% ministry. This business was started as the co-owners noticed that churches were not fully aware of the best sources for background checks or truly what they were getting.
