Trinity Baptist Church, located in Lake Charles, Louisiana, is affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention and Louisiana Baptist Convention and has over 3,600 members. Trinity currently has four Sunday morning services across four unique, on-site venues: Central Venue, North Venue, TK’s Place (Trinity Kids), and Iglesia Bautista Trinidad Lake Charles. Each of these venues has its own pastor who is under the leadership of the Senior Pastor.
Trinity has a great desire to reach the lost with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. From the Lake Area to missions around the globe, the Trinity family has been active in starting churches and helping those that are hurting. Also known as “The Family Place,” Trinity is committed to its mission built around relationships — loving Jesus and loving people.
The Senior Pastor is responsible for the proclamation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, teaching the biblical revelation, engaging in pastoral care ministries, providing administrative leadership in all areas of church life, acting as the chief administrator of the paid staff, and leading Trinity Baptist Church to grow and develop in Christian maturity and participation in Christian ministries (1 Timothy 3:1-7). The Church and Deacons will support the Senior Pastor and follow his leadership, affording him the optimum time for his God-called responsibilities.
The senior pastor search committee would like prospective candidates to provide a current resume to this email address: email@example.com.
The senior pastor search committee understands the importance of confidentiality and is committed to keeping all responses confidential.
“Let the Lord, the God of the spirits of all flesh, appoint a man over the congregation who shall go out before them and come in before them, who shall lead them out and bring them in, that the congregation of the Lord may not be as sheep that have no shepherd.”
The Senior Pastor Search Committee is comprised of nine church members, including the committee chair. A team of deacons vetted these nominees in order to assemble a committee that is representative of the church body.
The Senior Pastor Search Committee is empowered to seek and recommend to the church a prospective senior pastor. The prospective senior pastor will be presented to the church and the church will vote regarding a call as our senior pastor.
The senior pastor will shape the direction and health of our church for years to come. The entire pastor transition process needs to be bathed in prayer as the church seeks God’s direction in calling the right person.
“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.” James 1:5 ESV
