Lead Pastor Full Time

First Baptist Church

300 West Main Street, Princeton, KY



Nestled in the heart of Western Kentucky lies a unique body of believers, diversely gifted and united in a passion for Christ.   Our congregation has a ravenous appetite for the Holy Spirit’s leading and harbors a dedicated desire for service and discipleship to the community we call home.  Emerging from a season of pruning, our growing body is primed to bear much fruit with the Spirit-led leadership of the man God has called for us.  Prayerfully consider that this could be you.

      We are seeking a full-time, multifaceted leader with a vision and desire to help carry our church into the future.  Founded in 1850, our church’s rich history only emboldens our desire to carry out the Great Commission both at home and globally.  This has been demonstrated by our faithful commitment in giving to missions.   Our motto edifies that we are committed to “Connecting to Jesus and Connecting to People.”

       Our sprawling campus, encompasses a newly renovated sanctuary, chapel, offices, multiple educational classrooms, garages, ample parking, and a well-equipped Christian Life Center all posed with the perfect location in historic downtown.   God’s chosen man for us will be equipped with a debt-free facility designed for outreach and serving the lost.  It is an asset to our community as well, having been utilized by such organizations as the Red Cross during times of need.

      Our preferred candidate will fulfill the qualifications as described in both 1 Timothy 3:1-7, and Titus 1:5-9.  He will lead by the example of his own daily walk with Christ.  He will have a passion to meet people where they are, and disciple them to where God desires them to be.  He will possess strong administrative, organizational and communication skills. As a genuine and confident shepherd, he will love unconditionally, be a humble servant, and be Christ-like in the grace he extends to others.  He should be gifted in teaching and preaching, sharing sound Biblical doctrine that adheres to the Baptist Faith and the Message 2000.  

      Individuals heeding a call to apply should send a resume to [email protected] with “Pastor Search” in the subject line.  Hard copies may be sent to:  FBC, Pastor Search Committee, 300 West Main Street, Princeton, KY  42445
