Who We Are:

Faith Baptist Fellowship (Faith) is a multi-generational Baptist church in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, affiliated with Converge Heartland. While first established in 1979, Faith currently consists of 250 members, with approximately 330 people attending Sunday worship services. As a church, we strive to be a vibrant, healthy family of Christ-like believers, proclaiming a cross-centered gospel and living cross-centered lives. Our mission to make disciples of Jesus Christ and equip them for growth and service is guided by our 5 Loves of loving God, loving God’s word and prayer, loving one another, loving our neighbors, and loving the gospel. As a church-planting church, we are committed to gathered worship, personal worship, small group involvement, serving, giving, and sharing the gospel with a strong focus on missions. Our corporate worship style is blended, congregationally involved, and biblically focused on expository preaching of scripture with application to daily life. As a body, we are led by a team of vocational and non-vocational elders who pastor and shepherd our church while holding us true to our mission.   

Where We Are:

Located in the southeastern corner of South Dakota, Sioux Falls is the most populous city in the state. Sioux Falls is the county seat of Minnehaha County and extends south into Lincoln County. The city is located only a few miles west of the state lines of both Minnesota and Iowa. The Nebraska border and Missouri River are about a one-hour drive to the south. Many residents travel to the regional destinations of Minneapolis (4 hours to the northeast), Omaha (2.5 hours to the south), and South Dakota’s famous Black Hills (5 hours to the west).   Sioux Falls is a national award-winning and vibrant city with a growing regional population of 282,000. The Sioux Falls metro area accounts for more than 30% of the state’s population. Chartered in 1856 on the banks of the Big Sioux River, the city is situated in the rolling hills at the junction of Interstates 29 and 90.

Who We Are Looking For:

The next lead pastor of Faith Baptist Fellowship will be a biblically qualified and theologically conservative man of God who winsomely balances grace and truth primarily through expository preaching. He will have adequate experience to both develop and lead with a team of elders while also leading support staff, associate pastors, and the congregation toward a unified vision of ongoing spiritual and numeric growth.  Our next pastor will share our passion for prayer, global missions, and small group fellowships, while also helping us to relationally engage our growing community and region with the Gospel of Christ.  He will have a proven track record of local church leadership and preaching, as well as an advanced degree in Bible, Theology, such as an M.Div., or its equivalent.  If you see yourself as a potential fit, and desire to explore this opportunity further, then please don’t hesitate to apply.  We are praying for you!
