The University Baptist Church of Austin seeks a full-time senior pastor who will help the congregation to flourish through meaningful worship services, compassionate pastoral care, and the cultivation of each person’s gifts as we seek to embody the love of Jesus Christ.

  • The pastor will embrace the church’s tradition of inclusiveness, its ministries to the marginalized in our neighborhood, and its commitment to social justice.
  • The pastor will foster a welcoming and affirming environment for all, regardless of race, ethnicity, age, ability, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
  • The pastor will support and strengthen our existing partnerships with nearby communities of faith. Some of these partnerships, such as our joint youth ministry with two other churches, focus on the spiritual development of our members. Others are oriented toward ministries with the homeless and disadvantaged in our neighborhood.
  • The pastor will take the initiative to build new relationships with individuals and organizations that are passionate about transforming lives in our community.
  • The pastor will be encouraged to reach out to students, faculty, and staff at the University of Texas, where a variety of disciplines and organizations are exploring new ways to create a more just society.
  • The ability to establish and nurture relationships will be crucial for leading the church forward.
  • The pastor will listen carefully and respectfully, identify shared values and goals, and build consensus around effective ways of working together for the benefit of our community.
