KLBC Pastor Search

Kenai Lake Baptist Church in Cooper Landing, Alaska is searching for a Pastor.  We are an affiliate of the Conservative Baptist Association (CBNW). Sunday attendance will vary from 30 in the winter to a high of 90 in the summer. We are a small group of Christians from various denominational backgrounds meeting together with the common purpose to worship and serve God. Our pastor retired in July 2018, and we have lay leadership that is continuing discipling men in the church they have been filling the pulpit successfully. The leadership and the congregation feel to fully serve the Church and community we need a full time Pastor that can offer total commitment to building and serving the Church daily, however we are patient and will wait for God to bring the right man in his timing.

We are looking for a Pastor who meets Gods Standards of a Leader as in 1 Timothy 3:1-7.  Being true to the Word of God in life and from the pulpit. Responsibilities will include preparation and delivery of a weekly message on Sunday morning, leadership for one other weekly meeting, visitation, counseling, mentoring and other Pastoral duties that are necessary for the Church and effective community outreach.

Cooper Landing is a small retirement / recreational community located in the Kenai Mountains 110 miles south of Anchorage along the Sterling Highway.  Our winter population is around 400, while in the summer the population soars as lodges, summer homes and campgrounds are fully occupied.  We have a K-8 school in our community, our junior and senior high students are bussed to Soldotna an hour away. Our meeting place is a small log structure located on the shores of Kenai Lake along the Sterling Highway. Our parsonage is modern, very comfortable for a family and well equipped for entertaining.  The view from the parsonage overlooks the lake, river and community.   Opportunities abound for unlimited outdoor activities including, hiking, fishing, hunting, camping, boating, cross-country skiing and snow machining.

While our church is small we offer a beautiful home, utilities, transportation expenses and an annual salary.  Any concerns that our new potential Pastor may have will be taken into consideration by the church.

We would like to hear from Pastors who feel that God is leading them and their families to this type of service.
Please submit a comprehensive resume, doctrinal statement, personal biography/testimony and references to Kenai Lake Baptist Church.
