Pastor Full Time

First Baptist Church, Bogalusa, Louisiana

541 Avenue F, Bogalusa, LA



First Baptist Church has been a mainstay in the city since 1906.  We currently have an interim pastor, interim minister of music, an interim minister to children and youth and a full-time office assistant.  Church facilities (no mortgages) include a sanctuary which will seat approximately 800, two educational buildings and a family life center.  The annual budget is $385,000, membership is approximately 400 and average Sunday morning attendance is approximately 125-135 and growing.  Bogalusa is mainly a “blue collar” town with a population of approximately 12,000.  We are about 60 miles north of New Orleans and the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, an ideal location for continuing education.   The town might best be described in the following narrative written by a local business man who also is a member of the pastor search committee.  “To tell you a little bit about our town is that it is like many small towns in America with the description depending on who you talk  to and the answer you receive.  As for me, I have been here all my life and love my town.  Yes, it has problems.  It is not a rich community and there are drugs and despair.  However, we have a large number of people here who love our town and love Jesus.  There are small churches spread out all over our town and parish (county).  If you are looking for a place to serve, there is a need here and this church is one that will get behind you and make you feel like family.  I will say from my experience serving as a temporary staff member for a few months, the love the people in this church have to give is at a high level and is strongly felt.  So, if you are looking for a perfect town, some will say this isn’t it.  For me, it is.  Even with its problems, I always look at the better things instead of the bad.  Bogalusa is just one step away from becoming a booming place.”
