Senior Pastor

Website Brunswick Baptist Church

Brunswick Baptist Church of Brunswick, NY is a Christ centered, theologically conservative, Southern Baptist Church of about 90 active members. As one of the least churched areas in the United States, our community is ripe for evangelism. As part of our mission, BBC also works hand in hand with the Hudson Baptist Association (HBANY.net) to promote church planting in the region. We are prayerfully seeking a pastor who will help shape the vision of our church for the next generation.

We hope to fill this position with a dynamic and Spirit filled leader who will partner with our other pastors / ministry volunteers to meet the spiritual needs of:
Our congregation, with practical preaching & discipleship
Our local community, with purposeful outreach & ministry
The world, with a passionate focus on missions & giving

At BBC we enjoy sound biblical teaching and joyous praise and worship. Currently we are holding one worship service weekly that is supplemented with small group Bible studies and times of prayer.

Our church is located just outside Troy in northeastern New York, just 35 miles from the Vermont and Massachusetts line. Near the State Capital of Albany, we are 60 miles from the Adirondack Mountains and 40 miles from the Catskills. Troy is located at `the convergence of the Mohawk and Hudson Rivers.

As our current Senior Pastor approaches retirement, we are seeking to transition this this full-time position on our pastoral leadership team to the position of Senior Pastor, after a short period of six months.
