Preschool/Children’s Pastor Full Time

Ebenezer Baptist Church

1210 Pleasant Green Road Hillsborough, NC 27278



Get To Know Ebenezer
The rich history of this church that began in 1895 to reach the local community between Hillsborough and Durham in central North Carolina still drives the ministries of this faith community today. Known as a friendly church, we are also a doctrinally sound body of believers with a heart for others. A vital part of our church influence comes through the Master’s Garden Preschool, begun over 12 years ago on a 32-acre property that was previously a Catholic school. The church has experienced ebbs and flows of ministry and is now embarking on a new journey of aligned ministry in order to see our area see Jesus. Our primary mission is to develop authentic followers of Jesus Christ who impact the world.
When you arrive at EBC, we want you to find your place within our family, build your faith upon the person of Jesus, and make a difference in the world around you. This driving vision permeates our ministries at every level, yet it is still a work in progress. The Preschool/Children’s Pastor/Director is part of our church’s desire to reach the families of Orange and Durham Counties.
