Bear Creek Baptist Church is a small mountain church located in Mitchell County in WNC with an average of 100-115 members. We have been without a pastor since 2022 and are currently healing from a church split. Our church encompasses a variety of young families and older adults. We have a strong youth and children ministry and several other ministries are based at our church as well. Bear Creek is prayerfully searching for a pastor.
Our Church is seeking a Pastor to lead in furthering our congregation in deep biblical studies and understanding. The Pastor must deliver sermons and be able to teach and lead prayer groups among the congregation. Qualifications for a pastor laid out in 1 Timothy includes being above reproach, husband to one wife, self-controlled, sensible, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not an excessive drinker, gentle, not quarrelsome, not greedy, manage his household well, not a new convert, and has a good reputation among his community. Ephesians 4 also describes a Pastor as having humility, gentleness, patience, and forbearance, with unity in Christ being the ultimate goal for the church.
As we prayerfully seek God’s will for our church, we encourage prayerful consideration to fill the role as Pastor at Bear Creek Baptist Church.
