JOB DESCRIPTION:

OVERVIEW

Mulberry Baptist Church is a contemporary, largely younger congregation, Southern Baptist church with a five-member staff (Lead Pastor, Associate Pastor (open), Children’s Director, Preschool Director, and Ministry Assistant). We are looking for a full-time Associate Pastor to lead our Sunday morning worship and Student ministry. We believe the best fit for this ministry would be one who would consider themselves fun, relational, outreach-oriented, theologically conservative, a discipler, a self-starter, and has a strong presence on stage as a talented singer.

Houma and Terrebonne Parish (a parish is what other states refer to as a county) offer an experience blended with rich history, breathtaking landscape, and a flourishing culture that contributes to the distinctive fabric of Louisiana. 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-minute drive 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 2nd Happiest Place to Live in the USA” by a national study* done in 2014.

The residents making up Houma and its surrounding are around 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.
