Mandeville Bible Church – (Mandeville, LA) – Senior Pastor

The Big Picture 

Mandeville Bible Church (mandevillebiblechurch.org) is seeking a Senior Pastor who will preach the Word of God, shepherd the congregation and reach the community for the Glory of God.   

The Church

Mandeville Bible has a weekly scheduled worship service on Sunday mornings, which includes Adult worship services and Sunday School for all ages. A full Children’s church runs concurrently with Adult worship services. Men’s and women’s Bible studies are also conducted during the week. Our services are characterized by an informal atmosphere where Bible teaching is emphasized and expected. We are an Elder Led church.  Typically, the Elder Board consists of five men.  Our Senior Pastor automatically qualifies to serve as the only on-going Pastor.  The other men are selected based on the qualifications listed in 1Timothy 2, and Titus 1.  Each of these men serve a three-year rotating term, and must step down for at least one year between terms.

Our church facilities are composed of three buildings; a Sanctuary, a Fellowship hall (includes Adult & Youth class rooms, kitchen, and dining area), and Administrative Office Building. We believe that the Lord wants our church to grow.  The existing facility has long since been a limiting factor on growing the Body of Christ here in the high growth area of the NorthShore of Lake Pontchartrain.  Shortly before the first Covid wave, we purchased a 6+ acre tract of land and completed a site design.  We are completing the process of the facilities design and hope to raise the funds to begin construction in the latter part of 2022.

The new facilities are designed to accommodate a 300 member congregation. The site plan can be viewed on our website at www.MandevilleBibleChurch.org.
