Mt. Calvary Baptist Church (Whitwell, TN) – Lead Pastor

The Big Picture

Mt. Calvary Baptist Church ( is seeking a Lead Pastor who will preach the Word of God, seek the will of God, provide visionary leadership according to the Word of God and equip the Body of Christ to carry out the work of God.

The Church

Mt. Calvary Baptist Church was established in 1934 and has deep roots in the community. Mt. Calvary Baptist Church is comprised of a group of passionate, Bible-believing Christ-servers with a love for the rural community we serve. Our congregation stands unwaveringly on the Word of God. We recognize a pastor can’t do it all, so we welcome delegation of duties. We have teams led by members who were called to share the load of ministry and small life groups. Because we are equally in need of grace, we don’t expect our pastor (or his family) to be perfect. We do want a leader to share in our God-ordained mission, vision and values to reach deeper into our community. Our growth strategy is to bring them in, build them up, train them, then to send them out as disciples for the Kingdom of God. We are passionate about our young people. Mt. Calvary Baptist Church has a casual atmosphere; however, we are serious about our faith.
