Brief Job Description:

At Second Baptist, we are committed to meaningful Christ-centered community, whole-life faith, and to be a transforming missional presence in our world. We have a conviction that a deep level of belonging to Christ and the Christ community will bring about holy transformation in people's’ lives, in our church, and around our world. We subscribe to the biblical belief that we were created in the image of our God who is, in essence, a social reality: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God existing in sacred community is on the mission to make our broken world whole. We want to be a part of that mission. We want to experience it. So we begin where God begins, in sacred community.
