Holyoke First Baptist Church is announcing our search for a new pastor. This link has one item for your review, the Church and Community Profile.
We would like to thank you for considering our church as a place to minister the hope of Jesus Christ. Such a decision requires both parties to be seeking God and the leading of His Holy Spirit. Prayer must be the foundation for any decision we make to partner in this exciting adventure.
Our mission is “Sharing Christ & Building Believers”. Our vision is “ to be a community where, in Christ, we pursue a better way to live, where outsiders seek to belong, and where everyone is equipped and encouraged to fully trust Jesus and serve Him”. We are looking for a pastoral candidate that can embrace our mission and vision.
We are located on the eastern plains of Colorado. As a small agricultural community, we call to God for our very livelihoods as we plant the seed, watch it grow, and reap the harvest. Our trust is in Him. We are looking for a pastor that has an understanding of the land and is willing to lead us as we seek to touch the world around us. The fields are ripe for harvest. We need a leader to manage the harvest.
While the majority of our residents are Caucasian, we have a growing Hispanic population that is also an integral part of our body. They participate primarily in the Sunday night service led by our Hispanic Pastor, Ismael Lopez. We look for ways to bridge the gaps and fellowship together. Our new pastor must have a desire to cultivate and grow that relationship. We are blessed with a new church building, but much more than that, the vision to reach our community and beyond. We seek a shepherd who can help us show God to the world in what we say and do.
If you believe God is preparing your heart for a ministry in this place, we welcome that discussion. We recognize that God will lead us in recognizing whether we are to be a team together. Please reach out to us by email with a copy of your resume if you believe you may be a fit for our church.
