Lincoln City and Faith Baptist:
Lincoln City is a 7.5 mile community located along the beautiful Oregon Coast. Many people are familiar with this area as a wonderful place to vacation, go to the beach, or escape the summer heat of the valley. Roughly 10,000 people call Lincoln City home, but the population can more than triple in size during the peak tourist seasons, with visitors from all over the world. Faith Baptist Church has an opportunity to minister to visitors as well as full time and part time residents. The church has a core group of families who are committed to the task of making more and better disciples of Jesus on the Oregon Coast. There is also a large population that has settled here to retire, and there are many part time residents. Faith Baptist is a place where the Gospel is proclaimed and lives are changed! We offer a thriving youth and children’s ministry, which has given the church a unique outreach to the young families in our area. Currently, Sunday services are around 250 with approximately 50 students active in our youth ministry.

How To Apply:
