Snake River Community Church (SRCC) in Baggs, WY, is seeking a lead pastor. Candidates (and families) must be comfortable in an extremely rural environment serving a small church with a wide range of ages and spiritual maturity. We have several families with young children, so a desire to help guide church leadership in children’s ministries is a must. We are not seeking a pastor that can do it all but rather a pastor that can guide and direct us as we seek to serve our church and our community.

Must fulfill all leadership qualifications of an elder as laid out in 1 Tim 3:2-7 and Titus 1:6-9 and be recognized by other elders/pastors as meeting these qualifications. Strong Leadership and communication skills with a passion for serving the Lord through a multigenerational congregation and providing guidance in the church’s mission through various ministries. Demonstrate the ability to manage multiple priorities and work effectively under pressure in a loving and respectful manner with both the church and the outside community.

(Eph 4:11-12) He must agree with the doctrines of this church ( ) and shepherd the flock by example, in a kind and gentle manner. (1 Peter 5:1-3) The fundamental role for the Pastor of SRCC is to develop and deliver engaging and exegetical, biblically-based sermons every week. The SRCC pastor will also be responsible for providing pastoral care to members of the congregation and surrounding community, including visiting the sick, counseling those in need, and offering support during times of crisis. Additionally, he may be asked to officiate weddings, funerals, baptisms, etc. as needed.

He will also be expected to facilitate and encourage spiritual growth and discipleship through the development, implementation, and guidance of raising up elders, prayer meetings, bible studies, children’s ministries, and other programs.
Furthermore, the SRCC pastor should engage and build relationships within the local community, participating in outreach and mission activities, and foster collaboration with other organizations, as biblically appropriate, to address community needs.

Compensation and Benefits:
Ideally, the Pastor would serve the role full time; however, we understand there could be reasonable financial needs for the candidate to be bi-vocational. The base salary is $2500/month.
