Associate Pastor Search: First Baptist Spurger

Southeast Texas churches come in every size, shape, and denomination. I have a friend who moved to Southeast Texas from up North observe that their seemed to be a church on every corner. He isn’t quite right of course. Some corner host two Southeast Texas churches.

Some of the finest Southeast Texas churches are a reflection of their communities. The building, the pastor, the sermons, the music, and the church’s ministries reflect the community and the congregation.

First Baptist Spurger is an example of this kind of church. While not a large church building by Beaumont or Nederland standards, the First Baptist Spurgerchurch is probably the second largest building complex in town, after the Spurger ISD complex. There is comfortable room in the sanctuary for Sunday and Wednesday attendees. Maybe it’s a little crowded at major holidays, but just about right on “any given Sunday”. First Baptist Spurger has a large fellowship hall that hosts basketball games, community meals, wedding receptions, and many of the community’s larger gatherings.  The service is contemporary Baptist and can be enjoyed by seniors and digested by teens. Missionaries have gone forth from First Baptist Spurger to help those in Southeast Texas and to the corners of the earth – Russia, Belize, Alaska.

First Baptist Church Spurger is the kind of place that attracts good pastors and that keeps them for many years until they are inevitably called to churches in larger communities.

Currently, First Baptist Church Spurger is looking for an Associate Pastor.
