A leading African American Baptist congregation in Falls Church, VA of Fairfax County, is prayerfully seeking a bi-vocational ordained Pastor (male or female), to lead its numerous ministries and conduct worship services, as needed. Second Baptist Church has served the Falls Church community and vicinity for over 152 years. Second Baptist Church continues to serve a racially and culturally diverse community. The successful candidate for Pastor must have, as a minimum, a bachelor’s degree and some level of seminary training either completed or in progress.  Additionally, the Pastor must have a time schedule sufficiently flexible to teach and preach the gospel based on a thorough knowledge of the Bible gained through formal training and demonstrated experience.

The Pastor, along with other ministerial staff and lay leadership, will lead in developing strategic goals and targeted actions which address the needs of the Church. Pastoral experience and/or seminary is desired along with demonstrated organizational management skills.  Also, the ability to effectively communicate with the varied membership, the community and other church affiliated organizations is necessary.  A practical knowledge of technological tools available to enhance the communication process is essential.  Other duties will include visitation, care and counseling, and actively leading the growth of our membership with special emphasis on young adults and youth.
