Senior Pastor

Website Calvary Baptist Church

Calvary Baptist Church (CBC) in Aberdeen, New Jersey, is seeking God to discover who He has for its next Senior Pastor.  For fifty-one years we have been ministering, as a multi-cultural congregation, in central New Jersey, located just a few miles from the beautiful Jersey coastline.  CBC is affiliated with the North Jersey Network of Churches (Association), the Baptist Convention of New York, and the Southern Baptist Convention.  The average Sunday Worship attendance (pre-Covid-19) is 65 people with a mixture of cultures, some young families, children and teens, and a majority age group of 50 and up.   (Peak during 51 years reached over 200.)  CBC is positioned in an established neighborhood, close to local schools and shopping areas, with great outreach ministry potential in the local community.  We have a nice parsonage located less than ½ mile from the church building.  CBC has children’s and youth ministries, a praise band, and multiple Bible studies / fellowship groups who meet on Sundays and throughout the week.  The Worship Service is a mixture of contemporary and traditional music, prayer, and conservative, application-oriented Bible teaching.


CBC is seeking a full-time Senior Pastor, after God’s heart, who will feed us with knowledge and understanding (Jeremiah 3:15); one who meets the Biblical qualifications outlined in 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:6-9 – ideally one with seminary training, not less than 5 years of relevant ministry experience, and a calling to serve the LORD in our Northeast USA community.  His life should demonstrate a love for the Lord Jesus and His Church; and a passion for evangelism and discipleship, rooted in God’s Word.  We are seeking a Pastor who loves people, has God-inspired vision, is able to work well with people of varied age ranges and cultural backgrounds, and is also supportive of Southern Baptist ministries.   With a good leadership match, a strategic evangelistic outreach plan that is wrapped in prayer and exercised in faith, and an involved congregation, by God’s grace, Calvary can experience a Kingdom harvest for the Lord Jesus Christ in its community.
