Tanglewood Baptist Church in Jasper, Texas is in the revitalization/replanting process. So we’re looking for someone with a unique skill set to join our staff as a full-time Youth and Worship Pastor. If you know how to lead youth, can lead worship, are comfortable doing evangelism and missions in a cross-cultural context, and maybe have a heart for church planting, this might be a good fit for you.
A part of the church’s mission is to minister cross-culturally to win the African-American community surrounding the church and is unreached by the other churches in town. This is a huge mission field, since more than half the town is populated by African-American residents who are made up of two-parent families, single-parent homes, and an abundance of children, and youth who need Jesus.
Our Pastor came here in March of 2020. He is drawing from his church planting experience as he leads us through the process of revitalization and replanting. So you would have the support of a healthy, loving church family and be working alongside a Pastor who is as passionate about advancing God’s kingdom with the gospel as you are.
I have to warn you, though. This is not some glamorous, posh, easy, desk job. It will take energy and effort. But the rewards are worth it! So, we are praying that the Lord will send forth laborers into the harvest because the field is ripe for harvest here. Experience and education is beneficial, but not necessary.
