About Rozetta
We are a small, independent, country church situated in west central Illinois located a
few miles from the Mississippi River and a few hours’ drive to Chicago and St. Louis. On
Sunday morning, you’ll see lots of families–many of them multi-generational–joining
each other to worship. Our service has elements of traditional and contemporary
worship, both in style and in personality. We sing hymns, use PowerPoint, share video,
and broadcast services online. Over our nearly 200-year history, we’ve adapted to meet
the day’s challenges while not compromising on God’s Word.

We’re a close-knit community, and you’ll find us enjoying time with each other outside of
our Sunday services. Join us for our stone soup supper, ice cream social, weiner roast,
vacation Bible school, or any of a number of potlucks. We’ll save you a seat and some
homemade pie.

We have a heart for the youth of our communities, and our facilities are well suited for
ministry. In 2015, we opened a brand new fellowship hall for events and gatherings,
including a youth room loft. Our church basement has dedicated classrooms.
Additionally, our parsonage is newly remodeled in 2022, and we are in the process of
installing a new audio-visual system to enhance our online outreach.

Duties, Expectations, and Responsibilities
The pastor we’re seeking will be part of the leadership team composed of the deacon
board, trustees, and other active volunteers in the church. Rozetta will see that he is
supported and encouraged. The pastor must be willing to preach the whole of God’s
Word unapologetically and grow the congregation closer to the Lord. He must be a
growing Christian leader, upholding Rozetta’s constitution or helping us to make it more
Biblical. Above all, he must share our dedication to God’s Word. The rest is just details.

We want a pastor who is willing to support our youth and assist our director of youth
ministries. Community interaction is also important to us. We want to know and love our
pastor on more than just Sunday mornings.

Education and Experience
We believe that God equips those whom He calls, regardless of background or
education. A seminary degree is a wonderful tool for anyone in ministry, but it’s not a
prerequisite for being the pastor at Rozetta Baptist Church.

Similarly, we believe that God fosters leadership through a variety of contexts.
Therefore, applicants need not have pastored a church prior to Rozetta.

We seek a man whose heart is steadfast on the Lord, following His lead.
