Maplewood Baptist Church in Paris, Tennessee, is seeking a Minister of Students to join us as we Gather, Go, and Grow. A healthy and thriving church in northwest Tennessee, Maplewood has a rich tradition of being a loving church with heart-warming fellowship. Our Sunday morning worship averages around 200 in attendance. A committed core of students, parents, adult volunteers, and a youth worship team, all look forward to supporting the continued growth of our youth ministry – not only in numbers, but most importantly, in spiritual depth.
The Paris-Henry County area is situated in northwest Tennessee, close to the Kentucky border. We are located on Kentucky lake, close to Land Between the Lakes, and just a little over an hour’s drive to Clarksville, Jackson, Paducah, and a bit over two hours to Nashville or Memphis. The “Volunteer County of the Volunteer State” is special and unique. We have one high school, which allows a strong sense of community. Our downtown area has fun shops, and regularly planned events while our recreational, volunteering, and giving opportunities are many. We even have our own Eiffel Tower!
