ESBC Senior Pastor Search

East Sylva Baptist Church, Sylva, NC located at the foot of the Great Smoky Mountains in Western North Carolina, is seeking a full-time senior pastor to lead the congregation into the next chapter of our long established church history.  The Church is searching for a pastor who is a strong and effective communicator, a story teller by nature. The Church desires a pastor who is a gifted teacher able to open minds for learning and understanding spiritual and biblical truths.  A person who possesses and demonstrates strong leadership qualities for leading the Church into future development and growth is desired.

 

East Sylva Baptist Church is a moderate; New Testament focused church who affirms both men and women in ministry and leadership roles.  The Church has a strong lay leadership presence.  The congregation focuses on inspirational worship by applying biblical scripture to all areas of life. 

 

Graduation from a school of divinity or accredited seminary along with some years of experience engaging in congregational ministry from the pulpit is strongly preferred for the successful candidate or an Associate Pastor seeking to move into the role of Senior Pastor.  We also have a parsonage if needed.  Please include with your resume a link to some past sermons that the committee can watch.
