First Baptist Church of Trenton, Trenton, Michigan 48183 is looking for a Bi-vocational Pastor. Our church is surrounded by residential homes giving great opportunity to reach people. Our current Pastor is retiring February 26, 2023 after spending 65 years serving in the Pastoral Ministry.

We are looking for someone that can relate to the younger generation to spur us in growth leading us in sharing the gospel to the people around us.

Being a smaller congregation, we are limited in what can afford to pay a new pastor. But we have a lot to offer in opportunity. We own and meet in a former elementary school in the middle of a subdivision. Located on 6+ acres of land that would allow many outreach opportunities for the right leader. We are looking for an energetic pastoral candidate to lead us in reaching the people around us sharing God’s loving Word.

The plumb-line to measure the Christian character and qualifications of our pastoral candidate comes from God’s Holy Word. Passages include 1 Timothy 3:1-7, Titus 1:5-9 and 1 Peter 5:1-4 and following the SBC 2000 Baptist Faith and Message. We expect sound doctrine and to be prepared in leading our worship services and teaching. We are looking for someone to help lead us in reaching the lost and baptizing in the Lord’s name. Someone that can be there to meet the needs of the people whether funerals, weddings, counseling or other church and community events. We are looking for someone that would be living in the area of the church to be available in God’s service. This is a great opportunity for the right man of God to reach the lost around us.
