JOB DESCRIPTION:

Mulberry Baptist Church is a contemporary, largely younger congregation, Southern Baptist church with a five-member staff (Lead Pastor, part-time Administrator, Children’s Director, Preschool Director, and Student Interim Director). We are looking for a full-time pastor to oversee the Education ministry such as Sundayschool and Small Groups and lead the Student Ministry with the help of the Student Bible study teachers and Student Council who do a lot of the legwork in the ministry.

We are looking for someone who is comfortable with youth and fun, relational, discipler, self-starter, outreach-oriented, and theologically conservative. This will be a full-time position with a compensation package up to $72,000 depending on experience and education.

Houma and Terrebonne Parish (a parish is what other states refer to as a county) offer an experience blended with rich history, a breathtaking landscape, and a flourishing culture that contributes to the distinctive fabric of Louisiana. Our area features everything from world-class fishing, birding and hunting, to swamp tours, museums, festivals, Antebellum homes and numerous plantations, world loved Cajun culture, excellent department store shopping, family-oriented community, two renowned hospitals, and excellent schools (Nicholls State University is only a 20-minutedrive along with numerous colleges within 60 miles).

Houma promises every resident will experience the flavor, spirit and wild nature that inhabit Louisiana’s wetlands. The wetlands and its denizens are immeasurable. It is a distinctive way of life, home to a blend of cultures and traditions, where diversity is a strength. It is a place where the land, its people, and its culture connect. These are just a few of the reasons why Houma was voted “The 2ndHappiest Place to Live in the USA” by a national study* done in 2014.

The Houma city limits has a population of 34,000, but when the surrounding area is included, it’s closer to 100,000. It is just under an hour to New Orleans, which is one of the more unique cities in the USA, having many points of interest: jazz festivals, zoo, food, architecture, swamp tours, French Quarter, French Market, museums, aquarium, international airport (with inexpensive flights), and so much more. The draw of authentic Cajun culture, diverse environment and wildlife, historical sites, excellent food and proximity to New Orleans and Lafayette make Houma a central location for any resident who wishes to experience the culture of South Louisiana.

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

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.
