Independent Baptist Churches looking for a pastor

That is one of the search items that leads people to the Vision News on a regular basis. I just thought that since it seems that so many make that search that maybe I should say a word to each of you!

I do not know of any churches looking for a pastor in Georgia. I certainly hope that Vision is not looking for a new pastor–at least not right now.

What I do know is that we are in desperate need for men to start new churches even here in Georgia. I know that sounds like a contradiction but if you will study the number of churches you will find that there is a need.

People say that there is now no county in the entire USA where over 50% of the people are faithful to any church. That means that the US is officially not really churched! Yes there are churches on every corner but most are not full and are not filling up! Something needs to be done.

Inside the perimeter or Atlanta you will find very few independent Baptist Churches. From 285 to our exit there aren’t very many but there are multiplied tens of thousands of people.

Though I do not know of any churches looking for a pastor I do know that Vision Baptist and I want to train and prepare some men to start strong independent churches all over the USA and even here in Georgia and Atlanta. We want to start daughter churches both here in the USA and around the world.

If you might be interested in being a church planter and would like an apprenticeship you can contact us here on this blog, via the phone or at the church. I am not talking about just giving an offering–I mean an internship and training.

We want to train men for 2 years and then get behind them with all that we have to start churches in the USA. Pray with us about it. Get in touch.

We do not know where there are churches looking for a pastor but we do know a church that is looking for men who want to make a difference by planting a church whether it is here in Georgia, somewhere else in the USA or around the world.

    I’m so thankful I’ve come across this post.

    At my blog you’ll find this is my first pastorate and I’m right at 9 years as a pastor. For a couple of years now it’s been my desire to get to Georgia to continue on with a church OR have the Lord use me and my family to see a new church begin.

    I would love to talk with you more about this. It would be my blessing if you’d want to start off by emailing me back that you’d want to visit with me on this. My email is szek1029(at)gmail(dot)com.

    From there, if you’d like to give me a contact number, I’d call or whatever you’d have me to do.

    I really look forward to hearing from you…

    Lord bless!

    I am a born again man eating at a indepedent table and active in a jail ministry and nursing home works. I feel a need to grow up a minsitry and have a practice of door to door work and wonder about church starting in the area around Chattanooga TN. We need KJV independent works and train up a group of people who will go and evanglize and serve the Lord with joy. God can and I want to see it.

      We will be praying for you and the ministry God has given you to do. One of the toughest Jobs I believe is a in state ministry but is most needed. So many times knocking on doors could do more good in the name of Jesus and you may never know it and they may never attend a church but you could have stopped them from being in the middle of hurting them selves or someone else. they may even gripe about you coming by but the person they told may say I need to go to church and they may even go together and get saved. That is the power, Love and Grace of God who is their for any one if they Just believe in Jesus. A lot of the ways that God accomplishes that is through His people walking in that grace and telling and showing that love and Grace to other people that can only comes from Jesus. Ephesians2:8 remember it is not who you are and what you do but it is whos you are and what Jesus did. Romans 5:8 God bless.

      Vision Baptist is a church that follows Biblical views and instructions.
      God’s Holy Word forbids women to serve as Pastors or Elders.

  14. William O. Helzel (age 74) says

    I am currently assistant pastor @ Frostbite House of Prayer (8 years).[Southeast TN] Am considering working with a struggling church to help build them in the Lord. Looking for open door of hands on ministry (pastoral). Have started works in Wilmerding, PA, and in Mansfield, Pa and worked in struggling mission works in Brockway, PA and near Nineveh, PA Have worked in pulpit supply and as interim positions as well. Am ordained Southern Baptist (1981) with a Master’s degree from Covington Theological Seminary (1986) Have been “burned” by “Mother Church program” in the past. I do not take as “gospel” everything I hear from ministers as a result. I have been divorced and recently widowed. (Aug. 2009)(after 14 years Some hold my past against me. However, I believe God forgives completely.

    • keith W says

      Don’t give up brother it takes just as much grace for them as it does for you. Ephesians 2:8 and never forget it is not who you are and what you have done
      it is who’s you are in Christ Jesus and What He has done for all of us. When people minimize their sin and maximize someone else’s it demeans Jesus and what He did on the cross for everyone if they just choose to believe in Christ as their personal Savior. Grace is not a license to sin but if you think that way you are not walking in Gods precious Grace. Sadly a lot of leaders think that once they have been saved they have to keep themselves saved and they limit God from ever truly using them.. God bless and I pray that God puts you were it is a blessing for you and them and most of all people are lead to Christ healed and filled with His precious Holy spirit, in the name of Jesus.

  22. Evng Phillip (Randy) Bullington says

    I am currently an Evangelist living in Florence Al. My home church is Ocala Baptist Temple, in Ocala, Fl. I am an Independent Fundamental Baptist. My experience is that of Pulpit supply (filling in when a Pastor is out), Assistant Pastor, and Evangelist. As an Evangelist, my ministry deals mostly with revival of the churches. My theme is Mathew 9:37 “…The harvest truly plentious, but the laborers are few. I too see problems every where I go. It seams to me that the Four greatest problems with today’s churches are the lack of concern for the lost (a lack of revival, resulting in no regenerated church membership), pastors willing to compromise, and a lack of Pastors who are willing to serve for less. With the leading of the Lord, I am available for Revivals, pulpit supply, and dinner on the grounds. I have been married to my wife for 37 years and don’t intend to change that. We have taken our vows seriously through out our marriage. I will soon be available to pastor, but I currently have obligations. In the meantime, I am available for revivals. I well be available for North Alabama, Fl, Southern Tn., and possibly West Pa. My theme was once “church motivator”, but it scared people as they thought I was a “feel good” preacher like many on TV. I’m far from it! Please let me know how I can help. My telephone number is; (356)3275-3666 (not on my hand or forehead).

  23. James Scott says

    Saved at the age of eight and called to preach at the age of seventeen, I have been a independent, fundamental Baptist all of my life. I preach from nothing but the KJV. I am sixty-three years of age and my wife and I have been married for forty-two years. We are also grandparents to seventeen.

    My field of service to the Lord has been: eighteen years in missions, fifteen years in the pastorate and for the past eight years, I have be the director of a ministry of a Christian academy and home for troubled teens. (It is also independent and fundamental Baptist).

    I am willing to go whereever the Lord leads: senior pastor, assistant pastor, seniors ministry pastor or what He wants us to do. I am in good health and so is my wife. I sing and have some experience with singing specials and working with the choir.

    I am in full-time ministry at the present, but do definitely believe the Lord is wanting us to change venues of service.Thank you for taking the time to read this. If you would like to speak with me further, you may call me at (423) 618-4090.

We don’t start churches, we help churches start churches. We come and help you come up with a game plan, then we come and visit for the new church and help find a place to meet. Then we stay and help your man through the initial few weeks and then leave the church for you and he to continue. We keep in contact with the new church pastor and their sponsoring church and offer help as needed. Call 865-748-5419 for more information.

    Is your church in need of a pastor? We can help you find a good one, and can come to your church and supply until you find the right one.

  38. says

    I’ve been in the ministry for 45 years. Have been pastor at present church for 25 years. I feel like I can still reach another generation for the Lord. I work well with teens and kids, as well as adults. Our church here has grown from 70 to high days over 500 and an average between 300 – 350 with many saved every year. I am an author of 3 children’s books and 1 adult book, “Can I Still Be A Shepherd If I’m As Dumb As The Sheep?”. Looking for a church that might be interested in hiring me and my son, who has worked with me for 16 years. That way, if the church approved, there could be a smooth changeover in leadership later on. He stands where I do in every area. We work well together because we have different strengths and weaknesses. Any way, I thought I would put it out there! We are KJV, pre-trib., hate sin and love souls!

  39. DR. JAMES WEBB says

    Greetings in the Name of the Lord:

    My name is Jim Webb, graduate of Midwestern Baptist College, Pontiac, MI, class of 1983. Shortly after graduation, I felt called of the Lord to pioneer in planting a church in the Wheeling, WV area. In September 1983 my family and I founded Belmont County Baptist Church in St.Clairsville, OH which was about nine miles from Wheeling, WV. We were there until July 1988 and saw many souls come to Christ.

    We then relocated back to the Columbus, OH area and in September 1991 founded New Beginnings Baptist Church. I was the senior pastor there for 19 years. During that time, God allowed us to purchase nine acres of property, build three buildings as well as a 38×30 garage. I resigned and retired in October 2010. But since was invited back to preach for their 20th anniversary and preach a three day revival.

    As difficult as it was for us to leave the congregation that we had grown to love over the years, I felt it best to relocate because my wife struggled with arthritis and fibromyalgia. We moved to Conway, SC in October 2010.

    I received my Bachelors from Midwestern Baptist College in May 1983. I have also done masters work through Liberty School of Lifelong Learning. A
    Doctorate Degree was bestowed on me from Midwestern Baptist College for my life’s ministerial work and founding and starting two churches.
    I love to preach the word of God and I am convinced after visiting several churches that preachers need to preach the word today more than ever without apology. I use the KJV without apology.

    If you have a need for someone to fill your pulpit, I would be honored to come. I may be reached at 843-331-1234 or 614-738-9522.

    May the Lord bless you.
