Senior Minister Search


Transparency is a fundamental principle of the Senior Minister Search Committee at First Baptist Greenville. To that end, the committee will be providing resources at this site throughout the process. Please check here often for announcements, updates, and opportunities to participate. There is much more to come!


Congregational Conversations

Three independent congregational conversations will be held in the Fellowship Hall on the following dates and times:

  • Sunday, January 22—3:30-5:00pm
  • Sunday, February 5—3:30-5:00pm
  • Sunday, February 26—3:30-5:00pm

These conversations will focus on our church’s past, present, and future, respectively, as we develop a congregational profile—capturing who we are as a church family, and a pastor profile—capturing the qualities that we as a church believe would make the perfect match in our new senior minister. When completed, these documents will be shared here at this site and elsewhere.

The conversations are designed to build on each other, so we invite you to attend all three. However, if you have a conflict or two, please plan to attend as many as possible. Everyone will have a chance to talk and to be listened to. Childcare will be provided for ages birth through 5th grade.

We want to hear from our youth as well! Please stay tuned for information about a separate set of youth conversations also.

Please mark your calendars for these special and important events, so that our church family can benefit from your wisdom and insight.
