First Baptist Church is seeking a full time pastor for our small church located in Rio Grande City, Tx. Our church was established in 1932 and is part of a warm, friendly and mostly Hispanic community. A bilingual (Spanish) pastor would be a plus but not required. Computer skills for church bulletins and Power Point, for example, will also be needed. FBC does not have a secretary or other office staff so the pastor is also responsible for managing most administrative duties. Our pastor of over 20 years will be retiring this June (2023), and we are looking to grow our congregation especially in youth ministries. We are a simple/casual church and eager for a pastor to lead our Biblically conservative congregation.
FBC has a lovely sanctuary building with Sunday school rooms and offices, a parsonage, and a detached fellowship hall with full kitchen and library. Our fellowship hall has been used as a shelter in severe weather by our local law enforcement agencies with which we have a wonderful relationship.
RGC provides many opportunities for community involvement and outreach. Our biggest outreach is VBS, and we would like a pastor with a heart for children’s ministry.
