Minister to Senior Adults

Website Faith Baptist Church

Faith Baptist Church, a moderate Baptist church affiliated with CBF, is seeking someone to minister to our church’s senior adult members focused on identifying, understanding, and addressing senior adult needs, challenges and priorities.  Ideally, this person will have knowledge of aging (psychological, spiritual, social, and physical) and understands the problems of loss of hearing, sight, friends, etc. through aging. This person will listen to individual seniors to assess their personal needs while working with the senior committee to address those needs individually and communally. Currently, this looks like one-on-one relationship building along with helping plan monthly JOY (just older youth) group lunches and outings to provide community. He/She shall be supervised by both the pastor and the Senior Committee with a job performance evaluation annually.
