Sierra Baptist Church is a rural Baptist Church associated with the California Association of Regular Baptist Churches located in Newcastle, CA. The church is congregational in government and Baptistic in polity and doctrine. The church is currently served by Pastor Randal Pollard who has been in full time pastoral/missionary service for 37 years, including 20 years in missionary service in Brazil and the past 12 years at Sierra Baptist Church.
The candidate we are looking for would be a younger man who would appreciate a full time or part time position in a mentoring relationship with Pastor Pollard with the possible expectation of eventually assuming the position of senior pastor at SBC. Initial primary ministry responsibilities would involve an emphasis on young adult ministry as well as youth ministries. Periodic preaching, AWANA leadership, media/website development and worship leadership would all be possibilities depending on the candidate. The candidate would need to meet the qualifications listed in 1 Timothy 3:1-7, with the one exception that he could be single or married. Doctrinally, the candidate would need to be in complete agreement with the doctrinal position of Sierra Baptist Church and the CARBC: https://www.carbc.org/about-the-carbc/carbc-articles-of-faith/. The candidate would also need to be committed to agreement with and participation in the California Association of Regular Baptist Churches. As a small rural Baptist church, SBC offers an awesome first ministry opportunity for the right candidate! Additionally, Western Seminary Sacramento is within easy driving distance if the candidate is interested in further training.
