The Big Picture

First Baptist Church (holyokefbc.com) is seeking a pastor who will serve faithfully, preach the Word of God, exemplify godly character and equip the church to carry out the Great Commission locally and globally.

The Church

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 located on the eastern plains of Colorado (No mountains).  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 who understands 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.

The Qualifications

We require a man that meets the qualifications in I Timothy and Titus. The preferred minimum education is a seminary graduate along with previous pastoral experience. We want a strong Biblical preacher and one who is in line with our Statement of Faith.  He must have a heart to reach all people of our multi-cultural community.
