Southern Baptist


Established in 1883, First Baptist Church of Dawson, Texas is a small-town church with a big heart and mission.

We are looking for a Pastor to lead our small congregation and help us grow - spiritually and in numbers. The Pastor is the only full-time staff member. We have, at various times, had part-time music, youth, and children's ministers.

Our worship is best described as cautiously blended and gospel-centered - including traditional hymns, southern gospel, and contemporary songs that are biblical. Our facilities consist of the worship center/education building (built in 1954 and recently remodeled); a Life Center with education space, large kitchen, large fellowship room/auditorium with stage; and a youth building. The church property also contains an open playground, covered picnic area, and tennis court. The church also has another property being used for a thrift store and ministry center two blocks from the main campus.

This is a full-time position. The salary is small but negotiable. The church owns a brick 3-bedroom parsonage and provides housing, utilities, travel, and insurance.


The pastor, as Christ’s under-shepherd of the church, is responsible to God for leading and equipping the body to function as a New Testament church. The pastor shall lead the congregation, the organizations, and the church staff to perform their ministries. He is to carry out the call of God to shepherd the flock.

Duties include:

  • Preach and teach the Word of God,
  • Provide biblical, prayerful leadership
  • Minister to church members and the community in service and evangelism,
  • Equip church members to do the ministry of the church

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.
